Navigating Transitions with Grace
“Life is one transition after another” according to one of my wise friends who attended my free teleclass earlier this month. It is true. Some transitions we navigate are BIG – getting a new job or losing a job, becoming a parent or losing a parent, getting married or getting divorced!
When challenged by transitions, our natural human tendency is to RESIST change. We automatically tighten our grip on what is familiar when we face something new and unknown even when that unknown is something positive.
When we are unaware of this reaction, we struggle and make the transition even more challenging.
What helps everyone in any transition is to become aware –
How am I reacting to this change?
What are my options?
What do I want to retain?
What do I want to let go of?
What are my obstacles or challenges?
What obstacles am I creating?
How do I want to be in the midst of this change?
These are the kinds of questions that help my coaching clients successfully and powerfully navigate transitions. If you want more grace and less strain in your transitions, call me (952-939-0277). Let’s see if coaching is right for you.
