The newest pillar of service offered by Successful Generations is Executive Coaching. In this week’s episode, Ellie talks about the journey that led her to become a certified coach. She candidly shares issues she’s encountered as the next generation of her family’s business, and describes how her experiences have been validated by friends and peers from the family business world who are working to fill the shoes of the leaders who came before them, while simultaneously figuring out how to be their own person. As Ellie said, “We often feel like our goals and vision are set out for us by family or the family business. It can sometimes feel like your living someone else’s life.”
Through coaching, Ellie aims to help rising generation leaders set their own path for success. What’s your vision for your life? What are your goals? Are you the one standing in your own way of achieving them? How can you change this? The model Ellie uses in coaching helps you identify the roadblocks between you and your goals, and takes you through a process to retrain your brain to help you get what you want.
Here’s a testimonial from one of Ellie’s recent coaching clients:
“Ellie had this natural ability to easily draw me into conversation, parse out the opportunities to work on and then start coaching based on those opportunities. I found that being able to recognize and then interrupt my well-worn thought patterns with new thoughts required significant effort, but Ellie led me through a new mental model, walked beside me with encouragement, and is helping me become a confident and formidable force within my company.” —Ryan, Michigan
