Today's Blog Post
I started out partially on the basis of influence, i.e. the suggestion that I could work on being more empathetic. The other reason I reached out was that I was going through stressful times at both work, and being a long-distance dad. Also, given the pandemic times and everyone having problems, I guess I didn’t and haven’t felt comfortable sharing with friends, hence reaching out for therapy/coaching support.
With your support, my professional circumstances have improved since we started. When I felt like my employer was taking my efforts and contributions for granted, I went fishing and landed a promotion.
Other good stuff includes many great recommendations for connecting with my son, and generally being in my corner when it’s clear that I’m dealing with more than just unreasonable circumstances. I think we’ve managed a dynamic where I am able to be honest and acknowledge where I haven’t handled situations as well as I might have, and I still think I have more to channel towards being a better partner, dad, and professional. On the partner front, I’ve appreciated the frank recommendation that I let grandmas do grandma stuff, and that at other times, I shut up and do my job. I generally feel like you are pragmatic and realistic while maintaining standards and values in the actionable suggestions and illustrative anecdotes you share.
Mark, thank you very much, and I highly recommend your services.
