Thriving In Your Life and At Work

I work with individuals and organizations who want to create something powerful, deeply meaningful and something worth shaking things up for.

As a former psychotherapist, I worked with hundreds of clients over twelve years in private practice. That experience taught me to see, identify and understand the nuances of human behavior, motivation and change. 

Today I coach individuals who want to reinvent themselves and create an exceptional life--and I coach managers and executives to coach their teams for unprecedented success.

Here's how I began my journey as an executive coach:

Clients who were leaders in their organizations began to say to me, "You've helped me to make big changes. I need you to show me how to do that with my team at work. Can you do that?

I said "I don't know, but let's get started and see what happens." And what happened was exhilarating. My clients developed greater self-awareness and learned how to coach and inspire their team and turn them loose to do what they did best. Everyone loved it.

I began to see that not only can we transform our lives outside of work, we can do the same in the workplace.

To bring about transformation and to thrive, we have to start somewhere. But where?

Of course, we have to have a vision that ignites our desire to create something new, but we also need to be clear on where we are now. That brings us to you:

Personally, where are you in your life now--compared to what you want?

Professionally, where is your team now--compared to what their true potential is?

Are you...

  • Plateauing?
  • Growing?
  • Thriving?

I give my clients the  tools, support and guidance  they need to rethink and reinvent how they live and work--to flourish and thrive.

Most of my clients come to me from a position of strength--they are doing quite well. However, some come to me because they need to get to a position of strength and they want to do so as quickly as possible.

The result of our partnership is accelerated transformation that allows you to thrive as an individual or organization.

What does that take?

Thriving begins with the courage to challenge your current stituation. You have to quit accepting the status quo and you have to commit to something greater. You also need a vision that requires you to tap into your greatness to bring it to life.

To breath life into your vision, you have to take inspired action, one step at a time.That's what it takes to thrive. Being and doing all that isn't easy; it takes courage and commitment.

Recently I was being interviewed on a Florida radio station on the topic of thriving in life and work. The host asked me a good question: "Alan, with all the challenges most people have at work and in other areas of their life, is thriving a realistic goal?"

My answer was a definite "Yes."

With that said, we need to rethink our understanding of what "thriving" is and how we go about it. We've been operating from an old model and and a shallow understanding  of what "success" is.

The old model gives us a distorted view of how life and work is meant to be.

The old model views and treats people as machines and gives very little attention to the human dimension of work and life. The irony is that the old model focuses on results, results, results, while ignoring what could create  even greater results; tapping into the human spirit.

The new model of enlightened success recognizes the importance of high performance and results, but it goes about it in an enlightened way. With the new model, we can help each other create extraordinary results by tapping into our need to bring who we are to a community doing meaningful work.

When you give people a place to apply their talent, strengths and passion, they will blow your expectations away.

In your personal life, when you discover what your deeper motivations in life are and find a way to unleash them, you will have unbounded energy to create an inspired life.

You will also respond to challenges in a way that uses them to transforms them into opportunities for growth and greater success and well-being. That's what thriving is all about..

Thriving begins on the inside before it shows up on the outside. It's about having a strong sense of self-worth, self-confidence and knowing who you are and what you want.

That's true for an individual, team or company. It's about doing work that is meaningful and rewarding, it's about  feeling a sense of community at work,  it''s about connecting deeply with family and friends and it's about living with purpose and passion.

Thriving is a mindset  of oppportunity, empowerment, and abundance in all forms. Thriving is about being happy with who you are, what you're doing and where you'r e going, whether as a individual or a team at work.

Thriving isn't about never having setbacks or failures; it's about being resiliant and having the power to learn, grow and transform from the setbacks and failures.

Thriving is about who you are becoming in the process. People who thrive don't have lesser problems than those who are just maintaining--they simply believe in their ability to learn and profit from  their challenges

I help individuals and organizations thrive. I am an expert in human behavior, change dynamics and transformational coaching..

  • For Individuals: Do you have a vision for what your life that is so magnetic it pulls you into its gravitational force? Or have you been selling yourself short, thinking, "My life isn't so bad." What about the greatness inside of you calling out to be recognized and nurtured? Isn't it time to thrive? I can show you how to get there.
  • For Organizations: We need great leaders; ones who know how to listen, connect and inspire. That's called Transformational Leadership, and it is entirely different than Transactional Leadership. The missing element in today's workplace is the human factor. The question is, how do you tap into the human dimension to produce dramatic results? I can show you how to do that.
