Confident Sharing

Two days from this writing, I will begin with a new coaching client (I’ll call him Kevin). Thus far I’ve only met Kevin once and I have reviewed his pre-work for our first session. In his answers to that preparatory questionnaire, I believe I clearly see core values.

That first meeting left me looking forward to our work together. It also left me intently considering what it was I didn’t hear that is asking to be heard. Only after reviewing his answers did I discover the vanquished element: Voice.

Kevin is in pursuit of his voice; to know what it is and how to use it. Does he know this consciously at this point? Probably not. My job is to assist him in bringing this to consciousness as he both discovers and leverages his voice.

Kevin’s values point clearly to the core importance of collaborating toward a common goal and, in the process, growing from the resulting relationships. As we go deep in our work, he will begin to experience his own, unique voice as the power to strengthen his network; one connection and one interaction at a time.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
