Paul's Blog: Examine Your Core
When was the last time you examined the core of what you are all about?
Ask yourself questions like:
What business am I in?
Do I really love what I do for work?
What have I done for the most important people in my life lately?
Am I taking or am I giving?
Do I complain more than I used to? If so Why and about what?
Do I leave people better when I leave than when I showed up?
Are you clear on what your core actually is, and why ask the question anyway?
If the core gets a bug in it, it affects the whole fruit, and is then discarded along with the other collateral ones touching it.
Your core is who you are, it's your values it's what people really see when you are under pressure. It's your Impact.
What do you have to discard to nurture your core?
My vision is quite simple: to make an impact on the lives of the people who have been entrusted to me: You (for reading this article), my family and my clients.
I coach people. Direct, practical, innovative, meaningful.
I coach for excellence.
I love what I do... and so do my clients.
Over the years I've noticed that business coaching that was supposed to make us stronger actually took away our confidence and made us doubt ourselves. Confidence and people skills aren't developed just by measuring and planning everything, they grow through doing and learning from experience and by taking risks. People want to make a difference. Build teams. Be better understood. Live more confidently.
I founded IBC Impact Business Communication Inc. to create a world where business people communicate and act with confidence to create better worlds for themselves. Worlds where they feel powerful and free to express themselves. Worlds where something as simple as conversation creates energy, understanding and impact. Worlds so exquisite, I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
