Four levels of awareness
When I started RiverRhee I knew that I wanted to make a difference to individuals in the workplace. I thought then it was about sharing the principles, methodologies and tools that would enable them to do their best thinking.
I soon realised that it’s also about how we are as people: if we can understand ourselves and others better, we can learn to communicate and interact with each other better, be more productive and deal with change more effectively.
These first two levels: using tools to support our thinking, and enhancing how we interact with others and what we do are still very much part of the mix. But there is now a third level: connecting with the inner brilliance that is within each of us. Recognising, valuing and expressing our Neurodiversity is one way to release that inner brilliance.
Through my coaching I hope to connect people with what is possible and sustainable in what they and I care about. This can relate to any aspect of work and everyday life; understanding our Neurodiversity is part of that. It can also be more specifically about a fourth level of awareness: how we can create positive change in support of our planet, the climate and biodiversity.
I look forward to exploring one or more of these four levels with you.
We are each unique. Our genetics, the experiences and people in our lives, what we’ve learnt and what we choose to do, all make us so.
Our strengths accentuate our inner brilliance. What we tell ourselves, and the situations that we find ourselves in might limit it.
My work as a coach is about helping you to re-discover your inner brilliance, enhance your strengths and address those limiting factors.
We all have a combination of strengths in some cognitive capabilities, and challenges in others.
People who are neurodivergent tend to have what are known as “spiky” profiles: a more marked difference between the strengths and the challenges.
I can help you to identify and develop strategies and resources around such areas as communication, working styles and work place design to be more inclusive and adaptive in addressing your own and others’ challenges.
What we are experiencing in our environment, with climate change and diminishing biodiversity can feel overwhelming at times. It can provoke feelings such as anger, guilt and grief.
Coaching provides a safe and open space that can help you to acknowledge, normalise and process your emotions, and access your resourcefulness, your choices and power, your hope and resolve.
We may not be able to reverse all of the impact that humanity has had on our environment and on our planet, but change is possible, and nature is beautifully designed to change and evolve too.
