“To me, coaching is about calling people forth into their own significance. They have a part to play in the transition happening in the world today.”
Since 2005, Corrina Gordon-Barnes has been helping women develop inspirational ventures, with a key emphasis on sustainability, through her one-to-one coaching practice You Inspire Me.
“To me, coaching is about calling people forth into their own significance so they can realize they’re not just a cog in the machine, but they have a part to play in the transition happening in the world today,” she says.
Corrina believes that in a society in which it so easy to forget that everyone matters, coaching has a key role to play in helping people realise their contribution. “Today, we're all being asked to reduce our carbon footprint, but what’s equally important is the need to increase our contribution footprint. The kind of footprint your heart is calling for you to leave. By opening up perspectives, coaching helps people see they can earn money in different ways, be free to pursue their passion, actually do what they really value in life, and make an important contribution through that.”
Corrina says the great gift of Co-Active Coaching® is its approach to listening: “To suddenly feel like you fill the space of that forty minutes, and it’s about you, and you’re special, is amazing. But what’s equally important is the coach's belief that you’re resourceful too; that you have the answers to the challenges you face in creating the life you want.”
“I love creating space for people to create a vision of who they really are at their most powerful, and what they want to do at their most powerful.”
