Free to be ME!

In this mini-workshop, Simone will present a few important basics of the “Free to be ME!” framework and accompanying coaching program that she has designed to help people (re)-discover their unique Motivation and Energy (ME!) preferences.

Knowing what drives you and what you are naturally attracted to when you are in flow are vital elements of self-knowledge. When you are crystal clear about what lights you up, it becomes child’s play to choose the right strategies and resources for achieving your goals in a way that feels both joyful and fitting for you. It can also help you to avoid being thrown off course by comparisons with others whose ME! profile is very different to your own.

Various quotes from Barbara Sher (sprinkled like magic dust throughout the talk!) will show that our beloved “fairy godmother” for Scanners clearly understood the key principles of natural energy flow and energy exchange that form the basis of the “Free to be ME!” framework.

Among other aspects, the mini-workshop will cover:

  • why the Law of Polarity is far more important than the Law of Attraction for genuine success and formulating personally-meaningful life goals
  • why living true to your nature is not only better for you but for the ecosystem of our planet as a whole, and
  • why your own internal compass probably needs to be recalibrated after being thrown off by the “Bermuda triangle” of parental, educational and societal conditioning.

Finally, Simone will point out how a knowledge of the “Free to be ME!” framework can equip all of us to become “rainbow warriors” in continuing Barbara Sher’s important life mission of “saving as many geniuses as possible.”

She is fascinated by everything related to language, has learnt four European languages (so far!), has a B.A. with Honours in Linguistics and German Studies from Monash University, and is a CELTA-qualified English trainer with over 15 years of teaching experience.

In developing the Free to be ME! framework, Simone has been able to combine her love of language, passion for polarity, deep interest in metaphor and cognitive framing (gained from studying with George Lakoff at the U.C. Berkeley) and her expertise in psychosomatics and energy dynamics (acquired as a result of her collaboration with Dr. Ruediger Dahlke on several translations and attending his many training seminars on archetypal medicine).

There is also the option to sign up for my free email series on different personality profiling systems and the accompanying free workshop webinar at the start of April.

For those who’d like to get started straightaway, you can order your own Deep Ocean report and debrief session at the same link.

Self-awareness: the Key to Thriving at Work for Highly Empathic People

As a Highly Sensitive Person, and particularly if you are sensitive to other people’s emotions, so highly empathic, you may not understand what is happening or its impact on your working life. You may feel your sensitivity to be a liability in the competitive environment of the workplace. It does not need to be. This presentation will translate the concepts into organized work speak, and help you understand that the key to thriving at work is to understand more about yourself.

If you want your life to reflect who you really are (your values), and you want to feel that peace and joy of expressing your authentic self, then you’ll want to embark on a journey of self-care.

And in order to make that daring journey, first you’ll need to dare to look within yourself. You can achieve so many goals when you take care of your own needs first.

This workshop invites you: to look within, to love what you find there (your imperfect self), and to radiate that love outward.

How Women Speak: The Professional Woman’s Playbook to being Effective and Feminine Without Losing Power!

In this workshop, we’ll talk about the not necessarily “new” but much needed approach women (and men for that matter) in today’s professional environment should take to break limiting gender stereotypes inside of communication at work and in regard to cultivating healthy professional relationships on all levels. Here’s a hint: it has not nothing to do with sacrificing any part of who you are. Instead, inside this workshop, participants will be led through a conversation to help them:

  • Understand this approach to leadership development and personal growth is an effective path to cultivating powerful, grounded and authentic leaders.
  • Embody the idea that there’s no such thing as being “too feminine” or “too masculine” and these perceptions are only relevant in terms of how one sees themselves.
  • Understand what “energy” has to do with it all and make the connection between heart and mind in a non “woo-woo” way that makes balancing the duality of “energy” easy to do.

Participants will walk away with a three-step process to be more intentional about their leadership, strategic with their communication—and feel good in the process of it all!

Lead To Make An Impact

Leadership effectiveness is a leader’s ability to influence their team, to encourage them to work together, and lead them to accomplish their goals. Leaders aim to achieve all of the above when working with their teams. Effectiveness can be measured, and there are valuable skills which can enhance your effectiveness as a leader.

Proactivity and expanding your circle of influence are traits which improve your leadership skills in your personal and professional life. As a leader, it is essential to begin each team project with a clear end in mind. Setting goals and planning how to achieve them helps you to become a more effective leader.

Last but not least, use your time wisely to become the effective and enthusiastic leader you want to be. With the wisdom to stay on track when stress and distractions get in the way, you can ensure that you and your team will create the awesome opportunities that will lead to your further development.
