Transitional coaching is one of the greatest gifts you can offer an individual when they are trying to work through this overwhelming time in their life. It is an incredible time of soul searching; reflecting on what was, letting go of the past dreams and successes but you are not really sure how to move forward. There is a feeling of isolation, failure and disappointment because this stage in your life seems so purposeless. As leaders we have a tendency to crave certainty. Tell me NOW what is next God! I dont' have time to be standing still without purpose or direction. Instead He will use this transitional time as a way to give clarity in your life that will be a filter for your next steps. Clarity does not always come from knowing what to do next but instead it may come from knowing what NOT to do next. The transition will be more about character development versus job description. Your skill,strengths and abilities will now be clarified through this time in the valley. Different will be born out of this transition. Can you embrace different?
There will definitely be a shift in paradigm as to how you view many areas of your life. It is inevitable but also a very intricate part of the pruning process as you transition to the next step. You will be a changed person because of your shift in thinking, you will embrace life differently, view others and knowledge differently. You need to process through each stage of the transition so there is no unfinished business draggin along with you. Your influence will grow as a leader not because of your change in position but because of the refining of your character development.
Perhaps you are in the midst of a transition and wondering how do I navigate through this. I was in that place three years ago, floundering and feeling completely lost. Not a good feeling for a Type A personality. It is so amazing to be on the other side, stronger, renewed, living purposefully and seeing that in the midst of the transition He was creating His greatest work in me.
