From inertia to self-empowerment: Pip Wall
Passion, motivation, direction and fulfillment: these were the missing elements Pip needed back in her life. After 7 years in a career that no longer satisfied her and 6 months living with family while she re-evaluated her life, Pip’s inner drive was quickly losing momentum.
Pip was craving a fresh start – a renewed sense of her own strength and capabilities, and a new set of dreams to follow. The problem was, what had once been ‘safe’ and ‘secure’ in her life was no longer what she truly desired. But what exactly did she want? What did she have to offer? Most of all, how could the two be combined to bring about genuine fulfillment?
The search for constructive guidance
Pip knew she needed professional advice but the question was, from whom? She had seen a psychologist but felt compelled to try something more constructive. Then there were the costs – in her current situation it seemed indulgent to spend money on one-on-one professional help.
The thought of a personal coach didn’t have instant appeal – it brought to mind a stranger telling her how they thought she should live her life. But after hearing the success stories of friends who had worked with Tony Lynch from Lynchpin Solutions, Pip began to reconsider. Intrigued by Tony’s style and approach, she decided to give coaching a chance.
Taking the first step
Pip’s first free consultation dispelled previous doubts she had about coaching: she soon realised the extent of Tony’s experience, humour, knowledge and techniques for self-reliance and personal growth:
Pip embraced coaching from the first session, which she left feeling empowered and, in her words, “positive and excited about having control over what I was going to achieve.” For Pip, the coaching method was all the more rewarding because it placed responsibility for her progress in her own hands:
Tony quickly became Pip’s personal motivator. She developed a high level of trust in her new mentor as she witnessed the extent of his professionalism:
Powering goals into action
Goal-setting and realisation were the highlight of Pip’s coaching sessions. From day 1, she was tasked with writing down her top 10 personal goals at the start of each day, the most significant of which became Pip and Tony’s focus over the next 3 months:
Regular contact with Tony in between sessions gave Pip valuable mental support and kept her focused on what she needed to achieve. In her first week, text messages were used to hold Pip accountable for recording and visualising her goals.
Pip’s defining goal centred around career direction. The challenge was to identify the right vocation – Pip knew she had skills from teaching, but “had no idea what they were, or what skills could be transferred to another industry.” Tony’s career understanding and networks were instrumental in guiding Pip in this area:
The sessions became a training ground for Pip to “keep achieving” and use each goal as a stepping stone to the next. Having identified her true passion, Pip and Tony set to work on a 30 – 90 day action plan, a technique which she could use for all areas of her life.
Even though the coaching challenged her, Pip never left a session with Tony feeling exhausted or drained:
An investment in personal growth
Coaching with Tony has quickened what could have been a long and difficult period of soul-searching in Pip’s life. In under 6 months, she has:
Pip is now armed with confidence in her choices and actions, knowledge of her skills and abilities, courage to accept responsibility for her life, and techniques for tackling obstacles to achieving her goals:
