A farewell to 2018 and planning for 2019

A farewell to 2018 and planning for 2019

The holidays are almost upon us, so we wanted to take this opportunity to wish you Season’s Greetings and a great start to 2019.

To help you make 2019 your best year yet, we’d like to invite you to join us for one of our new year webinars, focusing on your personal and professional aspirations, and on your business for the coming year.

First of all, a look back at 2018…

Claris Coaching in 2018

This year has truly flown by and, since the festive period is traditionally one of reflection, we’re looking back and assessing what we have achieved; both personally and collectively.

We have continued to support businesses across a range of industries this year and have been privileged to meet and help a great many wonderful people.

Taming technology

As well as continuing to enhance our in-house knowledge of neuroscience and understanding human behaviour through Conversational Intelligence®, we have also been looking at how technology can support us in sharing this expertise.

We’ve been conducting more coaching and training sessions online using the Zoom platform, our blog is expanding and we’ve been busy keeping our Facebook and LinkedIn pages up to date. If you don’t already follow us, why not take a look?

Using new systems has of course been a struggle at times, but we’ve relished the challenge and the benefits it can bring for our clients. We’ve also learnt first hand about the value of measuring all ideas against your objectives – focusing on our clients’ needs and our businesses’ needs. And every learning experience, however frustrating they sometimes are, is an opportunity for us to support our clients better.

Looking forward to 2019

The end of the year holiday period is also a time to look forward to the year ahead. And this year in particular the way ahead may be a little unclear for you, personally and professionally, thank Brexit and the inevitable changes it will bring.

For Claris Coaching we’ll be responding to our clients’ requests to increase the accessibility of our services, locally and globally. We’ll be providing more webinars and e-learning modules so we can support clients remotely as well as face to face.

Key to this will be ensuring that each time you access our services you find something engaging, informative and insightful. We will be using the power of conversational and emotional intelligence both in written and spoken form to bring you the best possible experience.

Achieving personal and professional success in 2019 webinars

To kick of the new year we will be running webinars in January, February and March which will help you to reflect on 2018 and plan for success in 2019. The aim is that, by the last webinar in March, you will be ready to “spring” into action!

Register your interest in our webinars.

We are offering two series of webinars, each will include three training modules and a guided workbook:

Webinars for business development

Module 1 Achieving Clarity in 2019

In this module we’ll reassess your business’ purpose, values and aspirations. We’ll look at your business model, your experiences in 2018 and redefine your vision statement for the year to come.

Module 2 – Measuring Impact

We’ll then look at your business’ mission, how your goals should be aligned to it and what measurements you should have in place to ensure you’re assessing your performance throughout the year.

Module 3 – The Art of Implementation

Finally, we’ll look at the art of implementation and focus. We’ll discuss how you can turn your goals into tangible actions and how you should review the impact of each of these.

Webinars for personal development

Module 1 – Stepping into 2019 with confidence

In this first module we’ll take you through a step by step process using neuroscientific techniques to help you define your personal vision statement for 2019. We’ll explain how your limiting beliefs and the chemicals in your brain can work for or against you – and how to modify your thought process and behaviours to use them to create positive energy.

Module 2 –Reflecting on my Wheel of Life

We’ll look at the areas of your life which are most important to you and take you through a reflective planning exercise, so you can start to identify how to take your vision statement from theory to action.

Module 3 – Implementation, Persistence and Practice

Now that you have your plans ready, this module will show you the value of staying focused, building good habits and putting in the hard work to achieve your aspirations.

A final word for 2018

We hope you all enjoy the holidays.

Here are some final thoughts on how to energise the positive chemicals in your brain this festive season:

  • Increase serotonin through acts of forgiveness and gratitude.
  • Boost oxytocin by spending time with friends and family, doing voluntary work, finding time to meditate, showing love and compassion and having fun and laughter.
  • Release dopamine by setting goals, exercising, meditating, focusing and valuing your strengths and others.
  • Practice mindfulness.

(Valuable reading on this includes: Richard Boyatzis’ book on Resonant Leadership and Judith Glaser’s book on Conversational Intelligence®.)

And, above all, have very Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!
