An Open Letter to My Colleagues
Back in the early 80’s, my then 3-year-old daughter jumped up next to her dad on the couch, looked at him, nodded her head wisely, and said …. “The world is changing Dad!” Her words have resonated with me at different times over the years … yet never more so than now!
I’ve been thinking a lot about the importance of the role Coaching Right Now plays in the midst of all of today’s disruption, and as the world moves toward whatever normal is next.
Every person on our team talks about how we were all drawn to this company because of the fit and alignment of our personal values with who and what the company is. Coaching Right Now is grounded in our CAKE values (Curiosity,Authenticity, Kindness, Energy), putting people first, and “healing the world, one relationship at a time” is the heart and soul of the work we do.
The data we collect and share shows not only the impact of our work to our clients and their business results, but also the individual lives we have touched and changed. When one enters the realm of leadership development, it is not to be taken lightly. Individual lives and futures of individuals and companies depend upon the work we do.
The companies we work with, and strive to work with, share our values. Those companies put people first and are purpose driven … companies that contribute to the well-being of their people, their customers and the world at large; believing that when they live those values, profits will come.
More now than ever, we get to keep the richness of who and what we are. Our values continue to serve us well as we seek to meet the needs of our current and future client partners during this time of crisis.
CRN inspires people to aspire – we help people dream and work to achieve their dreams. We inspire our clients to stretch their thinking and solutions for greatest impact on their businesses and their people. Our clients create more connected companies that create the space for more meaningful connection and productive environments, even in our remote world. Those we coach get the language, ideas, practices, and new behaviors to prepare for the success they imagine for themselves as our Coaches touch more and more people’s lives.
We don’t know what the future holds. There is no crystal ball. Yet, I believe our journey is exciting, filled with change and new opportunities that our past and our present can help reveal to us, and our aligned values will lead us to. This is the moment to continue to Inspire to Aspire.
