When picking your goal, you may have a lot of clarity—you know exactly what the goal is and the result you want. But maybe you are still figuring out what goal to choose. Perhaps you are at a crossroads in your career; you aren’t exactly sure what the next best step is, or what new service you want to create for your business.
The Votta Exercise is a six-step method I use with my coaching clients—leaders from as large as Fortune 10 companies, entrepreneurs, nonprofit executives, and more—to achieve new results. I started my business, Votta Coaching and Consulting in 2018, but I have been coaching leaders and facilitating seminars for over sixteen years. Time and again, I see my clients overcome obstacles, including big transitions or “pauses” in their lives, by separating facts from their personal views, and using that new awareness to shift perspectives, take new actions, and garner great results. In law, the definition of a fact is ‘the truth about events as opposed to interpretation’.
Have you ever been a part of a meeting where someone says something like, “We’ve always done it that way"? As a leader, these can be dangerous words.
The only thing constant in life is change. Our ability to change and adapt is a true measure of our health and resilience. Change is challenging, and you don’t have to go it alone. One possible goal of coaching is to help you take the next step. This step may be a difficult one that you need some structure, support, and accountability to accomplish.
Many of you may know that I like connecting with people on social media, and I do a lot of “connecting” with unscripted videos. If you’ve watched any of The Votta Group videos on YouTube or Facebook or Instagram, you may have intuited that we are regularly “putting ourselves out there.”
While our videos are unscripted, they are not unplanned. In fact, we are intentionally embracing vulnerability in the hopes of connecting at a deeper level with our viewers and followers. We want to get connected and stay connected with you.
Among the ironies in my life, I had the opportunity to include the first person who hired me in one of my leadership workshops. It’s difficult to express how meaningful it was that the great trainer and manager who hired me 20+ years ago would want to attend one of my workshops.
I am thankful for Jeff Kuhn, Managing Partner for Legion Prospecting, as I am thankful for all of my coaching clients who trust me enough—or are curious enough to invest in coaching or consulting with me.
