Design thinking in leadership coaching

The first practice I do with clients

Today I’m kicking off coaching engagements with two new clients. The beginning is always most fun because I get to discover and explore my client’s personal essence.


So what’s a personal essence?


It’s your soul, your best self, it’s when you show up from a higher place that is in alignment with who you are and the impact you want to make.


So how do we find your personal essence?


We ask your friends, family, clients, people who know you and love you, who see you in this way of being most often. Watch the video to see the details and just how this design thinking and conceptual process unfolds for this creative leader.


My clients are tasked to ask two specifically obtuse questions. When the answers come back they are a list of beautiful words like charismatic, independent, inspired, creative, welcoming, and approachable. Then I use design thinking to raise the level of energy, intention, and in theory, raise the roof of their personal being and brand.


After I highlight all of the language that is similar, I group them into five areas. So for example, if someone says the individual is full of grace and warmth, what’s the next level of grace and warmth?


Maybe it is sunshine, source or all-encompassing. This level of elevation create pillars of opportunity for how this individual is going show up with their personal essence and personal brand in place.


In a typical client engagement we co-create a launch plan to define what they want to do while working together. And more importantly, who they need to be to create their goals, and what needs to change. Together we go really deep and tune in with what they want to create in their life, personal brand, business or career. Then I’ll have a sense of which words resonate most and how they really show up at their best self.


If this resonates with you, and you want to know your personal essence and life purpose, then how to move it forward in your personal brand, career, business, or life, I want to invite you to join me for my #LiveBrightly Masterclass.


Knowing your purpose is the most magnetic form of energy you can have. #LiveBrightly Masterclass is where you will generate vivid clarity, personal branding and deep support.


In a short 8-weeks you are going to learn it, do it, know it, become it, and then create your personal brand to bring it to life.


If that resonates with you, you have permission to create what you most desire—direction, purpose, and soulful clarity. What may be missing is deliberate action, focused support and mastery. Imagine knowing your purpose, feeling it with vivid clarity and blazing energy.


You are turned on and tuned into what matters most to you and the impact you want to have. I’d love to have you join the group coaching program.
