“Life Toolkit” Planners

  I haven't written in a while. Between raising a 1 year old, taking care of the house, and managing my own free time and sanity, I somehow found a mental space to ask myself: "If I were, in this one year away from work, to do something else, something that truly defines me, what would it be?"  After ...

I got my ACC!

By Sunday, November 15, 2015 0 , Permalink

No, it's not some sort of new virus, nor any type of pills. It's a coach credential by the International Coach Federation, namely Associate Certified Coach. I'm so happy I finally got to apply for it, since it means a lot, as a coach, to earn a certification. Basically it means that the school you got trained as ...

Innovation starts from an empty page

{source: link} Creation starts from the void. Or so the Holy Books tell us. I get my inspiration in the morning, driving to work, listening to music. Or sometimes, in an empty room, writing on my laptop. Or listening to a presentation and going through idle thoughts. Either way, creativity and results focus don't really go together. You have to give up ...

HR = Human Relationships

By Tuesday, October 28, 2014 0 , Permalink

source: http://masteringlifeandhappiness.com/humanrelations.html   Reading Carl Rogers recently again after a few months an interesting idea came to mind: HR is normally understood as the corporate acronym for Human Resources. In fact, perhaps we should think of HR more as Human Relationships. During my experience as an HR professional, I kept believing that my work will be complete when I will ...

What you hate is what inspires change

I'm going through some confusing, yet change-prone times. It seems to come around every few years, a restlessness and need to re-define my life. Normally it includes hating what I've worked hard to earn, and a feeling that unless I do some big change around here, I'm not - ever! - going to be really ...

Control vs Freedom – A Power Tool

This is a post inspired by my Power Tool submission for my coaching training. A Power Tool is an antagonism (two opposite concepts) that a client can use to his benefit in one extreme or the other. I chose to write about Control. Control vs Freedom We live in an era of multitasking, and we find ourselves ...

How to be a better communicator: be aware.

I'm conducting a series of 4 trainings on communication (although I'm not a full time trainer: it just came out that way). And I'm not an expert on communication or building relationships either. Heck, I would even say that is one of my weak areas. But I guess at a certain stage I decided I ...

What are you learning new about yourself?

I haven't been posting for more than a month, which, in blogger terms, is unexcusable. I haven't posted not because of lack of ideas, but of lack of ability to get myself together and do something constructive. Instead, I kept having long conversations with myself, especially at night during my insomnia hours. It seems that lack of sleep ...

A different perspective on reality

I was doing a quick peer coaching (15 minutes "flash" coaching) yesterday evening, and something popped in my mind, so brilliant (excuse my modesty, it always gets in the way) that I thought I should share this with you. Jackie, the woman I was coaching, is returning to work next week, after 2 months of leave ...

1 year of Life Toolkit! Best posts & Coaching challenge

So one year of blogging passed away, quite fast.   What happened during this time? Looking back... - I started blogging like crazy, read all I could on SEO and social network promoting, then decided I should just let my readers unfold as they come. And that's how I got to this steady, smallish base of you ...
