Until we identify a volunteer Coach to administer this blog, we are inviting members of TCI’s Board of Directors to share random thoughts… a bit of their personal perspectives. Each of these ten individuals are amazingly accomplished in their own right, though some profess to have little or no blogging experience. And quite frankly, this latter point is unimportant. What matters is their unwavering commitment to TCI and its service-based mission and success.
Thus, with this introduction, the following contribution:
I want to share with you my personal experience as a TCI Coach. In my coaching career, I have coached literally hundreds of clients from all walks of life, with a myriad of reasons for becoming a coaching client. As a TCI Coach, I have been paired with several interesting clients who are working in non-profit organizations doing wonderful work to positively impact our world.
It has been one of my favorite professional experiences to support these particular clients to become more efficient, more effective, and better able to communicate as stronger directors/managers/leaders. In addition, they are more content, more self-aware, and less likely to burn out from lack of self-care. “Well”, you ask, “don’t you support all of your clients to accomplish those types of goals and growth?” The answer is, Yes! – AND, the distinction is that my coaching with TCI clients has allowed me, through the ‘pebble in the pond’ effect, to gift my professional expertise specifically to make a difference where it is often most needed.
Shifting to a personal example:
There are times when I am shocked at the state of my office and desk (like now) and because I am sharing my thoughts, I feel compelled to use You, dear reader, as an accountability nudge. I am going to throw everything into the middle of the room and carefully go through each piece and clean up my act! That is always my desperation activity: create more chaos to move toward simplicity.
Please note that, unlike some world leaders, I am fully aware that some of this content may be boring, inappropriate, or of no interest to anyone and Lord knows the grammar and style are a bit frightening. Still, my hope is that you will read past and future posts written by wonderful writers about some meaningful topic; that you will each have a spectacular summer filled with sparkling, sunny experiences and; that you will never forget your sunscreen. 🙂
