The more we talk about stress, the more stressful it gets!
For many of us on a typical morning, it is common to have mental chatter even before we’re fully awake. We think about our task list, plan for the entire day, and let the brain go on a trip even before the day has actually begun.
Navigating a relaunch into the corporate sector can be challenging. At RainKraft, ReStart programs are a core area that we work on. Our ICF certified coach, Subha Chandrasekaran, actively works with women who have taken a break in their career journey and are now looking to better understand when and how they want to make their way back.
At some point in your professional career, you may find yourself needing to take a break. This pressure is higher on women, and while reasons may range from childbirth and family commitments to moving after a major life change, the fact of the matter is that a break is still seen as a gap in your career. How can you come out of the other side of this gap stronger?
For a process as focused upon the individual as coaching, we wouldn’t usually think of organizational coaching. However, corporate coaching is possible, and it works the same way as individual coaching- within the company setting, a small group of individuals within a team or key people in management roles can undergo coaching.
One myth that often surrounds coaching and associated work is that coaching leads to higher motivation levels almost instantly. At RainKraft, we’d prefer to replace the rather transient ‘motivation’ with a more consistent ‘inspiration.’ Coaching is an individual journey of transformation. It does not ‘fire up’ people. Instead, it works to change them fundamentally.
If you’ve been following us on social media, you may have noticed that this month, we’re talking about coaching from the #InsideOut. We chose this theme because a) people still have questions about coaching as an effective tool for change, and b) what better time than the beginning of a new year to set goals?
