Helen AttridgeAfter 5 years of having my International Coach training company, I took some time out this year to review where I had been and where I am going, something I strongly recommend coaching clients, coaches and international leaders I work with do. From this time of reflection, I was able to review what was working both personally and professionally for me. This “reflection time” was deeply inspired by a leadership training I taught in China last November, where I walked into a room of leaders from all different walks of life and had a visceral experience in my body of their exhaustion and frustration. The morning of the first day of the training, I received a call from one of my trainers in the U.S., who had told me she had just been diagnosed with breast cancer and needed to start treatment immediately. As I looked around the room, I wondered how many of the leaders I was going to spend time with in this training were going to get to have the impact they wanted to have in their country or globally and how many may get sick, burned out, or lose their personal lives on their journey. I started to hear a small voice inside of me inviting me to change my curriculum and be present with both myself and these leaders over the time I spent with them. On the last day of our training, we climbed Quincheng Mountain together on a spiritual quest about our leadership journey. (Quincheng Mountain is the home of Taoism, a mountain covered in temples and steeped in some of the ancient spiritual teachings of China). That training began to create a pathway forward for me, as a leader, trainer and coach with a passion to create global change. I want to share the learnings I have had over the past year, about the inner guidance that we as coaches help people connect with and about allowing ourselves as coaches to be guided on our path.
