Live. Lead. Create. – The (30) Minute Coaching Experience (Summary Notes)
It begins as a whisper … playfully floating through the ether. And then another appears. And another. Ideas. Possibilities. Things that move and inspire you. As a business coach, as a life coach, virtually and in my podcast, I will always encourage you to listen to the whispers.
That’s where the magic will be found.
Life is an endless mosaic of safe doors and magical doors. My primary job as a business coach and as a life coach is to help you live your truth. Which means opening more of your magical doors.
Can you imagine what it would be like to study under Michelin Star Chef Massimo Bottura? It would be kin a young pianist landing an internship with Beethoven. And yet on one dark night, Chef Taki watched helplessly as his lemon tart violently crashed to the ground.
And that is when Massimo became a maestro life coach and a business coach. For in that moment… Massimo’s famous desert ”Oops, I dropped the lemon tart” was born of imperfection.
Live. Lead. Create. – The Three Traits Of Maestros
A maestro business coach and/or a maestro life coach does not focus on best practices, he or she focuses on endless possibilities.
Life, as a meaningful experience, one that you’re fully engaged in, and that makes you feel fully alive. As a life coach, this is what I hope for you.
Leadership, as a meaningful experience, one that you’re fully engaged in, and that makes you feel fully alive. As a business coach, this is what I hope for you.
The act of Creation as a meaningful experience, one that you’re fully engaged in, and that makes you feel fully alive. As a creative coach, this is what I hope for you.
And all of these things, I teach in my podcast, as a life coach, as a business coach, and as a creative coach.
These are the ideals that anchor this podcast. These are the ideals that anchor my coaching and training practice.
It is a framework based on almost three years of research, six-hundred pages of brainstorming in my sketch pad, and thousands of hours testing.
During that time, I took a hard look at the maestros of world, across many sectors: business, food, the arts, social enterprise. And I took hard look at my own life, to better understand how I beat such enormous odds.
The result was Live – Lead – Create, a coaching and teaching framework like no other.
My Life Coaching Framework: Live Your Truth Without Apology
My primary job as a life coach, virtually and in my podcast, is to help you find and own your truth without apology. Which is not about creating dependency on me as a life coach, but rather, it’s about creating dependency on the core truths that define you.
As a life coach, how can I help you find your voice? How I can help you speak your truth? And how I can help you do so confidently, without apology? This is the very essence of life and therefore, the very essence of my work as a life coach.
Authenticity. Making peace with your backstory. Clarifying your message to the world. Bolding being you. Getting out of whatever closet you are in. A life coach facilitates truths and courage that already exist.
My Business Coaching Framework: Develop Strong Personal Leadership Skills
Management skills alone will always fall short. Business best practices lack imagination or vision. A maestro business coach will always go much deeper. But how to do that? The answer is personal leadership training.
Personal leadership takes an internal approach to external mastery. As a business coach, I want to help you reprogram your autopilot system. Meaning, how you automatically react to things, on and off the job.
To aid me in my work as a business coach, I created The (10) Fundamentals Of Personal Leadership. You can download an infographic of this framework on my master class page.
As a business coach, if I can help you develop a high level of skill in those ten fundamentals, every area of your life will benefit. In other words, your personal and professional effectiveness will soar. And that should always be the bottom line for any business coach. Why? Because that kind of change lasts forever.
My Creative Coaching Framework: Become A Visionary Creator
Whether you are an off charts creative or not, everyone can become a visionary creator on some level. Can everyone become the next Spielberg or Branson? No. But most people don’t seek that anyways.
My work as a creative coach is to help you clarify and harness your creative passions.
My work as a creative coach is to help you clarify and harness your creative purpose.
My work as a creative coach is to help you clarify and harness your creative process.
Entrepreneurial creators. Artistic creators. Social enterprise creators. Others. Passions, purpose, and process, that is the DNA you will find in any legendary creator.
As a creative coach, I will help you identify the passions that are your fuel. I will help you identify the calling that moves you to perfect your craft. And finally, as a creative coach, I will help you unleash the full might of your creative process.
My podcast based coaching. My virtual coaching. Both are anchored by the Live. Lead. Create. framework.
But There Is A Price To Be Paid
#1- Talent & Handwork Alone Are Not Enough: You will have to develop strong personal leadership skills. Absent peak effectiveness, life and business will always be a struggle. Thus why I anchor my work as a business coach on personal leadership.
#2- The Status Quo Has Got To Go: You’re going to have to shake things up. You will need to awaken from your Best Practices slumber (which we’re all guilty of). Which is why my work as a creative coach is anchored on becoming a visionary creator.
#3- Your Armor Is Getting In The Way: We all have it. And yet it is your armor that will keep you from boldly living your truth without apology. Armor is about hiding, not proclaiming. My work as a life coach is to help you shout from the mountain tops. But only you can take off the armor.
Here’s Your Homework
I just want you to answer two questions. That’s all I want you to do. But I want it to feel like a treasure hunt. Go for broke.
#1- What makes you feel fully engaged?
#2- What makes you feel fully alive?
