Hello from Shirley,

How are you and what are you looking for?

My primary intention is to help people to feel more empowered and then able to help others feel empowered as a result. I aim to be a professional coach but also mentor, supervise, present and run the occasional workshop.

 

I particularly like to help those with a scientific background due to our traditional right/wrong/judgemental upbringing. So much now is people-related, needing qualitative thinking with its rich properties.

A few people have kindly tried to empower me and I'm sad if I have not met their expectations. Perhaps neither of us fully realised at the time that ultimately I am the one who puts air to my wings. When we use the term empowerment, do we understand the complexity involved to act differently?

How could it inspire you to define empowerment as giving you the permission for the personal growth to take responsibility for your own thoughts, feelings and actions?

You might also need to know about your motivation 'buttons' since they give you the energy to step up to inevitable decision-making during 2022.

Groups and teams can be greater than the sum of the individuals - and potentially even more innovative - but how often do we need remember that everyone is prioritising their efforts and noone is perfect especially in our imperfect and complex world? 

High standards are to be encouraged and I want you to be the best you can be; seek perfection only as a direction. Let's partner on priorities, balance and ethics. Humans are unpredictable; thus innovative and fun; let's admire human spirit!
