EMPOWERED STRATEGY SESSIONS
I’m 100% certain that you have what it takes to get through this time.
Even if you don't know how things will turn out.
Even if you aren't in control of a LOT of what is happening around you.
Even if your available choices aren't what they would be if things were different.
You can own how you move through what is.
You can take important and powerful steps, even if they're small.
You can play an active role in the future of your business and your life, rather than waiting to see what happens.
However, in order to do so, you’ll have to choose to change your focus: From waiting to initiating, from thinking to doing, and from asking to deciding. Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, invest your energy into what you can create.
The good news is that you aren’t alone. There are millions of business owners, including me, walking the same winding road, at this exact moment. Our circumstances might be different, but we’re all on shifting ground.
Together we can find workarounds for what we can’t control and we can design our own plan to keep moving. The truth is that despite the realities we most definitely can’t control, there’s still a lot we have the capacity to choose.
With an experienced, empathic business owner as your guide and advocate, we'll discuss strategic and creative ways to cultivate:
Clarity connects you to your purpose, your unique motivation for persevering through your most difficult days. Clarity guides decision-making and can cultivate a sense of calm, even in very uncertain times. So, the more clarity you can achieve during this time, the better.
Confidence doesn’t come solely from accumulating information; behavior studies indicate that it’s the result of consistently taking courageous action. Strategy is actually a means of testing and proving. It’s only through taking decisive action—based on the intel you have at hand—that you’ll have the opportunity to see what worked and what didn’t. It is this continuous cycle of acting, assessing, learning, tweaking and acting again that builds deep confidence.
With fresh clarity and courage on board, you’ll be more prepared to confidently step into action mode, even if it's just in small ways. You’ll better understand how to courageously and compassionately build a more hopeful future for yourself and your business.
Action breeds confidence and courage.
We’re offering these Empowered Strategy Sessions at an introductory rate of $250 for a limited time.
To keep with our social responsibility and need to physically distance during this time, all Strategy Sessions will be conducted using Zoom video conferencing.
Each session includes:
+ Pre-meeting intake form, with review by Rachel prior to your session.
+ 90-minute Zoom meeting, one-on-one with Rachel, to discuss the challenges your business is facing due to COVID-19.
+ Post-meeting video recording and Rachel's COVID-19 business action planning worksheets.
*Please note: These sessions are not a substitute for therapy. Empowered Strategy Sessions are for informational purposes only; they are not intended to replace the support of a certified therapist or healthcare team.
Empowered Strategy Sessions differ from our New Client Strategy Sessions in a few important ways:
The timeframe allocated to each session is longer (90 vs. 60 minutes)
In response to the unprecedented circumstances and extreme stressors related to running a business in the era of COVID-19, these strategy sessions will prioritize active listening and problem solving within a context of focused, empathic support.
Our goal is to help business owners identify ways to cultivate greater clarity, courage and confidence in themselves, so that they can make more thoughtful decisions and take even more empowered action post-session.
In-depth strategic, creative and tactical help will not be possible during these sessions. Do not sign up for one of these sessions with that expectation. If you would like to begin with the first session as described and then wish to dive deeper into your specific challenges/ goals in a one-on-one setting with Rachel, subsequent sessions can then be scheduled at a lower hourly rate. If you already anticipate that this will be the case for you, you can reach out to Meghan immediately to outline a customized coaching package that will meet your needs. There's no need to wait for the first session to be completed.
Let’s do this: We’ve got important work to do!
No, it’s not easy. And yes, there’s no one-size-fits-all instruction manual. You’ll still have days when all you want to do is zone out with the tv or need to have a good cry. I’ve needed to do those things too, in order to get through the heaviness of this time.
But…with clarity and your own plan in place, you’ll be able to breathe easier when you’re taking a break, plus you’ll make more progress when you’re ready to engage with work again.
While it’s true that there isn’t a prescribed roadmap for moving your particular business forward during times like these, you absolutely have what it takes to make clear decisions and take powerful action that works for you.
When someone tries to tell you that there’s no way you can survive this downturn in the economy or recover from this imposed interruption to business as usual, you’ll confidently respond:
