“For much of my life I have been risk and change averse. I have turned down so many opportunities because the status quo seemed much safer. Then I turned forty; and this pattern had to change. I attended a career re-invention workshop, employed a coach, married for the first time, moved in a new career direction and entered into the most fulfilling period of my life.
When I say it quickly, like that, it sounds easy. The truth is it was difficult. We don't change at the click of a finger and move into a brighter future, like the princess carried away into the sunset by a prince on a white horse. It was, and still is, a slow journey , but I am more equipped now than I have ever been. And I have learnt to find the right people at the right time to be part of what a client refers to as a "dream team."
Before my reinvention as a coach I was a high school English teacher, committed to fostering creativity, developing communication skills, nurturing self-belief, and encouraging in my students a courageous, wholehearted engagement in life. Becoming a coach and process facilitator was a natural extension of my former work and a deep commitment to my core purpose of evoking and nurturing potential in people, taking them from where they are to where they would like to be.
My first Coaching contract in 2007 – at a biotechnology innovation centre committed to supporting and enabling entrepreneurs – stimulated my interest in transition work. Among my clients were interns, scientists, managers, and entrepreneurs with dreams of making a difference within South African society. Partnering with them as they articulated their dreams, and helping them in concrete ways as well through active listening and a deep respect for their stories, I had the privilege of witnessing them move from uncertainty and fear to a grounded confidence in themselves. Within a few months all of them were well on their way to overcoming internal and external obstacles to growth. I knew then that I wanted to commit myself to being a part of this process of transformation. That is the work I have been doing with clients since then.
In organisations and with private individuals I am fascinated by the human response to change which ranges from exhilaration to terror, and by what happens when we are taken on a facilitated journey into change which allows us to transition and transform in our own way.
My work with private individuals,entrepreneurs, managers and teams in organisations is around understanding exactly what is changing, for whom and how critical our chosen response to change is. Through the coaching process we turn change from something to be feared into a tremendous opportunity for growth. Once we understand our resistances to change and find ways of overcoming those, we can make the shifts necessary to enter new territory.
As a result of my own personal and professional growth journey, my passion as a coach,facilitator and trainer is to make it possible for others to make the changes they want to make, in order to be all they have been created to be.” Juliette Gyure
