Completing the TCC Diploma was a catalyst to rewrite the script of my life. The world we are in today is changing very fast and we need much more than the intellectual training the average degree or diploma gives us. The TCC diploma for me was an invaluable re-schooling or perhaps un-schooling of my whole self. It helped me bring a depth and clarity to who I am and where I am going. With that depth and clarity everything I do now I do with intent and purpose which naturally results in a higher level of efficiency. What greater testament could there be than that my husband is looking to enrol in the diploma for the next academic year.
I came away with awareness, skills and tools that enable me to bring myself to life and work challenges with renewed energy, courage and purpose. The environment and facilitation opened access to new and liberating ideas and untapped capacity, and throughout the development process structured reflection, supervision, coaching and mentoring ensured a firm sense of own identity and integrity. Today I am excited to be part of TCC alumni and grateful to be able to live out my intention through TCC's Ubuntu Coaching Foundation, a social justice initiative.
Coaching has taught me so much about myself - why I do what I do. My understanding of people has increased significantly. This has resulted in forming deeper and more meaningful relationships with my family, friends and colleagues. I feel equipped to challenge, stimulate and ignite peoples' thinking so that they find new opportunities and solutions to the challenges that they face. I have used many of the skills and practises learned on the course in my business consultancy. I am applying action learning and coaching within management teams in companies and I am amazed and encouraged by the favourable results. The course facilitators and supervisors are very knowledgeable and experienced in their respective fields. The fact that they are also professional and practising coaches means that they are able to share their personal coaching experiences with their students.
This has been a wonderful, experiential learning journey that has contributed significantly to developing my leadership capacity within a complex and dynamic work environment. I have learned how to expand time available by being fully present and embarking on every engagement with a sense of purpose and clarity. I have recently been appointed to serve as a Change Agent, working with global leadership and HR to help our organisation absorb and manage the constant change we are facing in this fast-paced 21st Century, and the acknowledgment of my capacity to facilitate transformational shifts in outlook
I have always been passionate about working with people to unlock their potential and the TCC diploma has given me the knowledge and tools to lead with integrity, confidence, deeper insight and skill. The diploma course was the best thing to have happened to me in years and has fundamentally shifted the way I see and understand myself and interact with others. It is the beginning of a lifelong journey of continued growth and learning.
One of the key revelations for me, was around truly integrating me, as a person - in all the various roles that I play… to find a way to express my integration in the somewhat fragmented world and society that I find myself in. The change that I have experienced as a medical practitioner, has been profound. My goal is to embark on an approach, using coaching as a platform to help raise patients' awareness thought insight and deeper understanding of their own bodies, so that they have choice in leading their own health. As I too, continue on this journey of learning, discovery and personal exploration, I find inspiration in this quote (adapted) by Deepak Chopra: "If you want to know what your thoughts were like in the past, look at your body/life today. If you want to know what your body/life will be like in the future, look at your thoughts today
