My journey as business coach
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Six years ago I was living in the beautiful city of Barcelona. One day my husband came home with the great news that he was being offered a position in Switzerland. I was very happy for him but at the same time I felt sad of leaving my life in that amazing city. I started to look for ways to shift my mindset to confront that change. I came across a course called “coaching”. I knew very little about that topic, but something about this word captured my attention. As I attended the classes my interest in this field grew. I was so interested in getting to know myself better and at the same time understand how to help others face change, take action and transform their lives.
A few months after, my family and I moved to Switzerland. Very quickly I found job in a multinational company. I enjoyed that experience very much! Executives full of knowledge surrounded me and my learning curve was steep. In spite of this, a few questions kept coming regularly to my mind: How can I make a difference? What is my purpose? How can I inspire people within organisations to bring the best of themselves and lead with authenticity? I ignored those questions for years and a busy schedule struggling between my three children, husband, family abroad and a demanding job helped a lot in quieting this voice.
After four years in Switzerland, I moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A new city, a new beginning! This time things were different. I did not want a regular job. I wanted a better balance in my life and most importantly I wanted to discover my purpose. After a lot of exploration, I decided to hear my call and become a business coach. I realised that my purpose is to help professionals be authentic, creative and lead to make a difference! A difference in their personal lives, in their team members, in their organisation and inspire others to bring the best out of themselves.
