Vulnerability - something we don't often talk about

Vulnerability - something we don't often talk about...

Recently, I have noticed that the following topics keep popping up as challenges for clients in quite a few of my coaching sessions:

                                     • Shame

                                     • The importance of what others think of me and above all

                                     • Not showing any weakness  

All of these three points are holding people back from becoming the best they can be. Let us take a closer look at the underlying motivations behind these aspects. 


Change is all around us... How do we cope with it?

2016 is coming to a close and with it a year of incredible amount of change. There was Brexit, the US vote and the Austrian Presidential vote to name just a few changes that we experienced.

To enable these massive external shifts to take place, people needed to make different choices than they did before. To make different choices, we usually get to a point of frustration – getting fed up with what is happening currently. We end up talking about it and still, most of the time, don’t see any changes. When might you have experienced such a dilemma? Can you remember what you did?

Changes appear everywhere – and all the time. The human race is part of the evolution and evolution is change! So let’s look at an example of change from an experience I had with one of my clients.


Have you made up your mind?

In some cultures having a strong opinion or making a judgment is seen/perceived as a sign of confidence or power!!  Some might argue that judging helps form opinions. Society teaches us to judge all the time through the media, fashion, politics and religion.  From an early age we learn-know what is right and what is wrong and find our place in life accordingly, right?
