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’.
Many of my clients have become very successful in times of downturn. We all get to choose whether to see the situation we are in as a mess, or as an opportunity. For some people, “the pause” is a very uncomfortable time, so having a tool and structure around big decisions can make all the difference. I hope the Votta Exercise will be the tool that works for you.
But this book isn’t just about you. Even though it sets out to assist you in your transition, no one exists in a vacuum. The Votta Exercise doesn’t just serve the person who practices it. It serves the people with whom that person lives, works, and perhaps even passes on the sidewalk. If you are a leader who wants your team to feel empowered, feel they have a future, to feel heard, and to feel their leadership is transparent, this book is for you. Whether you are in the owner’s seat of the company or in a leadership position where you have ownership of the workplace culture, the decisions you make every day make a difference in your team members’ lives. This book is for leaders for whom both results and people matter.
If that’s you, consider this book to be an invitation— it is opening the door for you to be who you want to be and start building a legacy.
