Are you at a crossroads in your creative career? Is your day job flourishing but your creative practice feeling the squeeze, or does a new creative opportunity need some thinking over? How about taking time-out to look afresh at where you are now and coming up with some new approaches?
Getting to Where You Want to Be is a short coaching programme led by professional coach Eva Lewin. Through two 60-minute coaching sessions and a 20 minute introductory and a final follow-up phone call the coaching can help you untangle your thinking, clarify your goals and come up with a plan or next steps for action. You can identify the skills, strengths and resources that you can use and look at how you might deal with obstacles and habits that hold you back. From this discussion you will map out your route and steps to achieving your goals, be they longer term or more immediate.
Coaching is useful for writers at any stage of their creative career, whether you are starting out, mid-way or established –wherever a perspective and a plan is what you need.
Eva’s role as coach is to listen to you and to prompt you with questions to help you generate ideas, find your own solutions and set yourself realistic steps forward. Coaching is very much about you finding your own answers rather than an advice-giving process.
