When you're caught in a chronic stress cycle, it can feel like a never-ending downward spiral full of uncertainty and overwhelm.
You've worked too hard for too long to settle for a career path that is depleting your energy and leading you into burnout.
But when you're spinning around in the chaos, trying to determine what the next right step is or how to achieve it, can feel like a maze.
You may start to question whether it’s even possible.
Despite your best efforts, nothing has worked. You feel disconnected and lost and you need a way to cut through the stress and reconnect to your own vision, dreams, and goals.
You need a way to anchor yourself.
A deep dive into who you are--your values, needs, strengths, goals, and dreams--will give you this. You'll have a blueprint revealing a clear direction, what you need to be fulfilled and successful so the decision-making process feels natural and effortless.
Living day-in and day-out in chronic stress can chip away at your self-confidence and over time self-doubt can seep into every crevice of your life. You’re a high-achieving, accomplished, competent leader but you sure don’t feel like one.
Despite your accomplishments and commitment to excellence, you're drowning in uncertainty. Your inner critic is screaming at you and your imposter's voice is running the show.
Continually questioning yourself and your competence or wondering if you can trust your intuition, can feel as if the floor is falling out from under you. You don’t even feel like yourself anymore.
But how do you reverse this cycle?
Chronic stress and burnout have caused you to internalize the problem, shaking your confidence at its core and making you feel powerless. Building your self-trust back requires some deep inner work--a close examination of the thoughts, emotions, and beliefs that control your mindset and steal your joy.
This process will give you the tools to diffuse the voice of your inner critic and access your inner wisdom.
It is a concrete roadmap that allows you to reframe your thoughts and build a “growth mindset” so you can finally see new possibilities and opportunities.
Whether your goal is a promotion, a career transition or you’re craving a whole new direction, this will show you how to do so with ease and confidence.
You know something has to give. Something has to change. But a deep-rooted fear has you spinning.
And what’s worse is it’s coming at you from all directions. There’s the fear of change, fear of failure, fear of risk, fear of the unknown, fear of potential regret, fear of judgment from others...and the list goes on.
But then there’s the fear of doing nothing, the fear of staying stalled and stuck and stalled forever, and the fear of nothing improving.
Chronic stress can undermine you in dozens of ways--some of them obvious and others quite hidden. It’s usually a gradual process that mounts quietly over time, leaving you suffering in silence.
The more you ruminate, the more fear creeps in and the harder it feels to envision change. You begin to question your ability to be successful or even what “success” looks like for you anymore.
Not knowing how to get beyond fear can make you feel like you have no choice but to live with it and just hope it goes away. You know it's a roadblock to happiness, but you have no clue how to tackle it.
The truth is, you are underestimating your own strength and intuition.
Stress and burnout have magnified the fears and catastrophized the thought of change. Your fears have driven your beliefs about yourself and created “mind stories” or personal narratives that are driving your actions.
Although fear is a natural part of our human makeup, you can learn to recognize it and all the hidden ways it shows up.
A close examination of your beliefs reveals the cause. And the right tools and strategies show you how to stop taking direction from fear so it doesn’t keep hold you hostage.
Growth and progress are suddenly within your reach.
You don’t feel like yourself anymore. You’re no longer engaged with your work or genuinely connected to your goals.
The state of flow you used to feel when you were passionate about your work has faded to almost nothing. Your days are now full of overwhelm, pressure, and exhaustion.
Stress and burnout are to blame but how do you stop the downward cycle? How to feel like yourself again?
You wonder if you should just shove those thoughts aside and power through.
But sometimes molding yourself to a job that doesn’t align with who you are can feel like the old trying-to-fit-a -square-peg-in-a-round-hole-thing.
When your work doesn’t feel in congruence with your values or your vision for yourself, finding fulfillment is a challenge. Stress and burnout can rob you of your sense of purpose.
Enter the voice of the imposter spewing uncertainty and self-doubt. It's loud, commanding, and authoritative presence becomes the only voice you hear. You grow farther and farther away from your own intuition and wisdom.
The truth is, stress and burnout unchecked can actually rob you of your own identity.
Your work and life are no longer aligned with who you are, your needs, your vision, or your values.
This process will give you a proven methodology to shed imposter syndrome, reconnect to yourself, and uncover exactly what you need to feel aligned again.
You will design a work-life that is fulfilling and meaningful. This paves the way for you to show up as your strongest most confident and capable self in all aspects of your life.
You are a high achiever with tall standards and expectations for yourself and others, but stress and burnout may have you questioning your commitment to your work.
The cost to your happiness has become enormous, but you’re someone who doesn’t quit or give up easily. So the thought of making a change is a tough pill to swallow. You may fear what others will think.
You may even fear a loss of self-respect.
You thought the only answer was to power through--that it’s the “right” thing to do. But that hasn’t worked too well.
And on top of it all, you’re not able to handle the ups and downs as well as you used to. You’re exhausted, overwhelmed, and starting to wonder if you have the skills and stamina to keep going.
The real problem is our first commitment is to ourselves, and you haven’t followed the fasten-your-seatbelt-before-fastening-those-next-to-you rule.
The first line of defense is an “Energy Audit” that will illuminate all the things that are draining you and all the ways in which you may be giving up your own power.
Next, we pinpoint what you need in order to regain a strong commitment to your work and what’s in the way of you having it.
That’s where we drill down to the root of the problem. Now it's time to repair, restore and grow.
Resilience is not a natural-born trait, it’s a skill to be developed and a muscle to be strengthened. And this process gives you an arsenal of tools to do so.
Protect your energy, strengthen your mental and emotional wellbeing, and rekindle your creativity. Then you can spend less time navigating problems and more time growing your strengths so you can effectively and efficiently solve them.
You are a person who wants to make an impact through your work. One of your highest priorities is to make a difference in the lives of others. But the very things that have brought meaning to your work and a sense of purpose in your daily life have vanished.
In their place are endless meetings, obligations, conflict, and a high-stress work environment.
When your plate is brimming over with never-ending tasks, it can feel as if your ability to make a real contribution has been thrust aside.
You’re probably on an emotional roller coaster with highs and lows that can change on a dime. You feel like you don’t have control of your own emotions or mental wellbeing much less your work or your time!
And, the longer it goes on, the more difficult it becomes to reverse the overwhelm and chaos.
Add to this the feeling that because you have accomplished so much, you “should” be happy. But the more your contributions get watered down, the more unrealistic this seems. Maybe it’s time to accept the situation...
But you don't have to.
It is possible to regain a sense of autonomy and control over your situation so your work feels meaningful. You’ve worked hard and you deserve to make an impact where it counts.
This process will give you a clear, solid path to share your voice by focusing on concrete communication and negotiation skills, powerful tools to set boundaries, and effective ways to give and receive feedback.
It's about practical strategies that guide you through tiny steps that add up to big results.
