Align Your Self
Personal effectiveness is the quality of being able to generate success in what you want and in the way you want. This coaching program is for those who want more out of life or feel there is more to life and aspire to be all they can be. We all have dreams, goals, callings and ‘bucket list” items that when we think about them, make us feel as if something is missing: Something of substance and meaning without which we do not feel authentic or complete.
The Align Your Self program begins with an exploration of the self, examining all the elements of the system in which we live and that makes each of us unique and gives us a sense of meaning. Participants undertake a variety of interactive and experiential activities in addition to assessments and inventories specifically designed to draw out deep personal drives, eliminate blockages and liberate your authentic self.
Whether you’re looking to discover your true vocation, transform your sense of self, find the courage to answer a call from your inner voice, or wanting a life worth living; wherever you happen to be—emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually—the Align Your Self program will meet you there and help get you to where you want to be.
Align Your Career
Your career is an arena in which the elements of yourself are given expression. At an individual level the elements composing our careers provide the structure and framework in which you either achieve effectiveness or not. It makes a tangible difference in our self-efficacy, the way we approach our work and impact those we work and interact with, when we properly align our deepest interests, passions and capabilities within a career that truly embodies who we are. Aligning the elements of your career to either free up your capability or eliminate what is hindering you directly contributes to your effectiveness.
