Embrace your crazy

by | Feb 16, 2023 | Blog | 0 comments

It’s not unusual for one of my executive coaching clients to begin a meeting with, “I apologize in advance but, today I need some couch time.”

Whether you recognize it or not, every conversation we have involves some “therapy”.
Smart, driven, overachieving professionals are comfortable with business advice. Unfortunately, needing a little counseling feels like admitting a weakness which is typically reserved for those who lack “mental toughness”.
Over the last 20 years, I’ve spent more than 10,000 hours working with amazingly talented leaders.
Guess what?
No matter how much success they’ve had in the business world, some days they’re envious of their peers, afraid of making the wrong decision(s) and/or wonder if they’ve got enough talent/stamina/”mental toughness” to handle the next big challenge.

In other words, they’re exactly the same as you and me.
We are all flawed and despite our best efforts, irrational fears can creep into our daily mindset. It’s all just a part of the human experience.
Embrace your crazy and enjoy the journey.
