can make a difference
It is more than important to keep focused, positive and motivated, let alone productive at work in times of increasing uncertainty, in the midst of a worldwide unfamiliar social reassessment, due to lockdowns, SOPs (standard operating procedures) or MCOs (motion control orders), as an attempt to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus and all its new emerging variants.
Long-covid, post-covid syndrome are only a few new health conditions next to stress, anxiety, or PTSD. More will inevitably follow. The boundaries between private life and work are blurring due to the increased use of the home office as an alternative to office work. Frustration, reluctance, humility, and even depression, as a result, are no longer uncommon.
Professional, systematic coaching can offer great help, support, and provide structure before one might need to consult other parties such as psychologists or psychiatrists.

When do you want to consider hiring a professional coach?
When you really want to change in life or business but don't know how or where to start.
To achieve progress, while being cautious of both time and needed resources it can be beneficial to get support through professional coaching.
When you realise that you are procrastinating, pushing "things" away, and rather focussing on everything else but what you actually want to change.
You are lacking ideas of how to start, what to do first or you are simply overwhelmed by it all and have no idea where to start. You can't see the forest for the trees?
You actually want to become the best version of yourself and really want to make the effort of actually achieving this state?
You do have (found) your purpose in your life. You do know what you want and why? What it is you are striving for. If not, coaching can support you finding your purpose.
