What do you want?
“I’m in a fairly new role/job/company. I’m not making the impact I wanted to make (Frankly I’m struggling!). I don’t want to lose what I’ve worked so hard to get. I want to overcome these obstacles and succeed.”
First of all, I empathize with you. That "in over my head" feeling can be frightening, especially when you've worked so hard to win the role that you have. Here's the good news: lots of people want you to succeed, including the people who put you in that job.
Good for you for seeking support.
Let's start by lowering your stress level. Then you can think straight. By assessing your situation and forming solid, fast-acting solutions to the most pressing issues you will gain some control. And because I work with my clients at the frequency that works for them, you will have hands-on support.
Then we will look at what you need long term to thrive in this new position. And to enjoy doing it. Skills, relationships, habits. You're going to make this happen!
A Case Study
Kerry M was overjoyed when his long-held dream of owning the company he worked for became a reality. He went from General Manager to Owner overnight. A year later he was drowning in the details of the many hats he wore: overseeing production, product development, accounting, IT, sales, and daily staff problems. Working with me as a coach he concentrated on developing a new leadership style and skills, and training his people to take more responsibility.
"Thank you!...I still can’t believe I am where I am. I am learning and growing and I hope I always will strive to learn and grow. I like it. I still “hear” you sometimes in my mind. It is comforting and reassuring."...Kerry M, company owner, Franklin, TN.
