Be Your Own Coach

career mindset Jan 20, 2023

Hello Everyone, 

I have attended many personal and professional development programs because of my background. Sometimes I gain self-insight or learn new strategies, but rarely do I find I get both. And on rare occasions, I experience deep transformation during that program.

The struggle is after I leave these programs; I find myself unable to replicate the experience outside that personal/professional development setting. And while reflection, strategy, and transformation are helpful, rarely have I learned the tools to do so on my own, unless I've then registered and paid thousands of dollars to become a facilitator in that modality (a very good business model for sure).

The frustration with this is that it creates an atmosphere of dependency on that organization or a person who I've experienced the self-insight, strategy transformation with to get more. It's not that I don't believe that we should not have any mentors, coaches, or therapists, because we need outside support to see within — it's just that the focus of these industries should be on moving away from this dependency model we've created.

What if these programs taught participants the tools to deliver their own transformation for years to come after completing the program? And making it so that participants don't have to spend thousands of dollars to become a coach or therapist because they've affordably learned the tools to become their own coach, therapist and strategist.

I aim to change this dependency model with the launch of my 9toThrive Program. The 9toThrive Program is for leaders who want to learn the tools to identify who they are, what they need, and how to make aligned decisions from their self-awareness. 9toThrive participants meet twice a month for group coaching (times and dates TBD).
