Paula and the case of the hot-headed boss

sculpture_gift_of_gabPaula was miserable at work. Loved her job, but felt that her boss wasn’t quite right in the head.

Paula, a middle manager, felt that she was constantly being sabotaged. She felt defeated.

So Paula found me one day when she “wasn’t willing to take it anymore.”

That was step one of a changing equation.

Her boss was a hot head. But they had been good friends prior to their working relationship, which seemed to have ruined their social one.

Paula, to her credit, wanted to learn how to communicate with her boss. Truth be told, it took us nearly three months for her to realize that she wasn’t going to change him.

So I worked with Paula, through life coaching, to change what she did have control over and find ways of working that would bring more peace into her life.

One important way that Paula changed was to stick to politically correct protocol. Instead of engaging or giving her opinions, Paula would report just the facts to her boss.

When Paula removed herself personally from the situation, she stopped giving Hot Head her energy. She stopped investing any emotional energy in him.

Once the friend equation was removed, everything became much clearer. Paula saw where she had perpetuated the conflict and, now, how and when she could stop reacting and take a step or two back.

Paula got to neutral.

Neutral was a new concept to Paula, as it would be for many of us. It took her a while to understand it. And when Paula “got it,” she really got it! And she was able to apply this incredibly powerful strategy to other areas of her life.

Paula and I worked together for just over a year. Quite an investment for a reward that will last her the rest of her life.

Testimonials
For many years I have been searching for something. I felt stuck with the same repeating patterns, habits and beliefs. These patterns were ones that I did not desire. I had the urge to break free from them but felt powerless. I have read numerous inspirational books, changed my diet and even worked with an energy healer for several months. While these methods elevated my energy it was not the key towards the shift I desired. I am normally a DIY type of person but realized that this was an area that I could use help with. So in perfect timing I had the opportunity to begin coaching sessions with Lee. Each session is perfectly aligned to exactly what I need in that moment. She is very flexible, supportive and works from her heart. These qualities allowed me to be myself and to be open to receive guidance and move forward. I consider it a miracle what has manifested in the last several months since we have been working together. I moved out of a 14 year job that I was attached to but did not serve me. Simultaneously I received a new job opportunity which is exactly what I desire right now. We sold our first investment property which we had worked on for 3 years. Another investment opportunity manifested effortlessly. These manifestations were something in the past I thought would be difficult and time consuming to achieve. I now have the realization of living a life of my own creation and I chose which direction feels good. Lee is like my tuning fork. She helps me to stay focused on this wonderful path that she helped me to re-discover. Old habits still creep in and Lee helps me to realize them and continue to move past them. Lee is a precious wise soul that puts her heart into helping other’s remember their creative potential. Endless appreciation to you Lee! Norlen Linn Lempster, NH June 2015
