A small Film location company
was finding it difficult to survive in an
environment that was not only highly
competitive but also was facing a shrinking
market due to the state of the industry. The
challenge was how to increase profits in a
tough and highly competitive business
environment and how to keep staff employed.
Another challenge was dealing with
increasing costs of warehousing essential
was to conduct a concise SWOT
analysis. This let to the realization that
the company needed to be restructured
fundamentally in its operation in order to
mainly on developing new
niche markets overseas and cutting costs
internally thru more effective system
management. The challenge to find new niche
markets was solved by using strategies to
research and develop new alliances.
New management systems
were developed that were more effective in
the overall operations administration.
Developing a cost effective form of
warehousing by changing the location,
logistics and handling of the items used
lead to greater efficiency.
were outstanding. The company
managed to triple its income (already
after the 7th session!),
staff morale improved dramatically and the
overall satisfaction and work conditions
became much more rewarding. The company
eventually became so successful that they
opened a new branch overseas.
An IT employee
found it increasingly
difficult to find satisfaction in his job
working in the IT industry. He had become
noticeably moody and irritable, was not
motivated to carry on with his duties and
was facing potential financial set backs.
Consequently other areas of his life were
negatively affected as well.
focussed on uncovering what he really was
passionate about and committed to in his
life. He became focussed on exploring his
life’s purpose, vision and mission. In the
process he uncovered a variety of
limiting beliefs that had kept him stuck due
to the cultural conditioning by his family
of origin. After exploring his belief and
value systems he became aware of numerous
incongruent behavioural patterns that were
the underlying pattern for his
dissatisfaction in his life.
One of the core insights
that changed his life was the realization
that he had been living a life that his
parents wanted him to lead. He was
conditioned to live out their dreams at the
expense of his true talents. Opening to new
perspectives and releasing long held
limiting beliefs, he then was able to expand
his range of choices, making new, life
Changing his career path
proved to be highly rewarding
for him. After we had identified his
perceived life purpose we established a step
by step action plan. He enrolled in a
communication skills course and begun to
work part time only. In his spare time he
started to volunteer and practise his
communication skills in community
Fulfilment came when
he found a particular suitable community
group for which he worked with dedication
and motivation. He became a highly
thought after mediation expert in the months
to come. It not only changed the level of
his professional satisfaction but also had a
positive impact on his marriage and personal
Finding a new relationship
in a busy job proved to be
difficult for a young professional woman.
Her self confidence had taken a battering
after a number of painful disappointments
with men and she began to gain weight. She
had become increasingly isolated and
disappointed with the quality of her social
life. Despite being successful in many other
areas of her life she was not attracting the
right kind of partner no matter how hard she
Our initial approach
was to explore who and what she really
wanted in her life, and her expectations. To
her surprise she realized that she actually
had not been available for a new
relationship as she still was emotionally
attached to her last partner of many years.
She discovered how much her self esteem had
suffered after the separation. The
unfinished business with her past had
contributed to a series of other
disempowering relationships that had left
her feeling incomplete.
The choice was made to
complete with her past.
Forgiving her ex boy friend allowed her to
express and heal many years of unrealized
grief. She opened up to new possibilities
without the limiting baggage of the past.
Following this part of her journey we worked
next on building up her self esteem. She
came to terms with unrealistic expectations
and disempowering beliefs (i.e. “I’m not
good enough and need someone who takes care
of me”) which changed her behaviours and
We identified and focussed
on her real passions and selected two areas
of interest : outdoor activities & sport.
We set a number of agreed challenges in
those areas, designed to increase her
self-esteem, self reliance and motivation.
Some of the agreed
were to participate in a
powerful vision quest in the bush and
running a marathon for which she had to
train and loose weight. Both challenges
symbolised a big stretch which she faced
successfully after some coaching.
As a result
her self-esteem improved dramatically. Not
only had she found a new relationship to
herself with increasing self confidence but
she also made new friends. By choosing to
focus her life in a new direction she
expanded her social contacts and network.
Only a short time after
she had completed the last sessions she met
a man that was the right life partner for
her. They got married 6 months later and are
looking forward to their 1st
