There have been several success stories, and below are a few stories that are representative.
1. Negative beliefs that stopped a person’s career growth
A General Manager in a reputed National Bank had been trying for a promotion to the next level of Regional Director. He had a few more years to go for retirement and he had been considered for the post since the previous few years, but was always overlooked.
Coaching: During the Coaching sessions, it came to be known that although he was technically good in his work and he had fairly good people management skills, his issue was that he would get extremely nervous in his presentations or interactions with his Managing Director. This caused him great anxiety and he was not able to focus on his work. He had started developing a belief that he was not good enough for the next level and was losing focus.
The coaching sessions helped him get over his anxiety, re-framed his beliefs, and simulated specific situations such as meeting with his MD, attending his appraisal interviews, etc. This enormously allowed him to get back his self-confidence.
Result: Four months later when his appraisal results were declared, he was promoted to Regional Director.
2. Often, it is noticed that worries on the household front can have a bearing on one’s career
A Vice President in a reputed IT organisation in Hyderabad had performance issues and was given 6 months time for improvement. This person was naturally very agitated with what he had been told, and felt that the organisation and the management was against him in every way. During the sessions, he realised that his performance in office was largely due to his domestic issue at home. His had big relationship issues with his 19 year old son, and due to this, his wife and younger son were also against him. He was constantly told by his wife that he was not a good father, and he was undergoing a lot of stress due to this.
Coaching: The coaching sessions and some powerful NLP techniques helped him realise the misperception in his mind, and got him to change his own behaviour towards the family. He also practiced visualisation of a happy family.
Result: His family relations improved drastically and as, he found himself giving more time to them, and spending time with his son and discussing on his son’s areas of interest. They now have a regular family outing to a movie or a restaurant which for many years, they hadn’t been doing.
3. Have we ever validated to see how much we love the work we do?
A Project Manager in a reputed IT company had major issues in work-relationships with her boss and teammates. She felt that she was being ‘targeted’ by her boss, and that her team was taking advantage of this. She also felt that people did not give importance to her views, and she was losing her confidence in her abilities. This made her get extremely frustrated, and she had lost all motivation to go to work. This was obviously hampering her growth, and she was also considering change in her career, but confused whether she should do it.
Coaching: The coaching sessions had a big impact in her way of thinking. She realised that the power to change all this was inside of her. Through NLP techniques, she was able to sense what was actually happening during her conversations, and how the other people perceived the situation. By the end of the sessions, she had not only overcome her perceptions, but also learnt how to build quick rapport and make effective conversations with people. Throughout the sessions, the actions that she carried out got her confidence back, and she started getting results. The surprise turn of events was that, when she decided to take the DMIT (Biometric) test, the report indicated her potential in the area of acting (which she realised was her childhood dream).
Result: She feels a sense of importance and more responsibility, she is more relaxed in meetings with her boss, and she has greatly improved her relations with her team. She is also attending weekend hobby classes in Stage Acting, to discover her natural ‘inborn’ talent, and she wishes to take this up seriously in the future. She had now found purpose in her life.
