Get Comfortable Not Knowing

An Unexpected Gift

I've become very comfortable not knowing...the answers to questions, solutions to problems, the best way to make great decisions. You're probably wondering why 'not knowing' doesn't cause me serious anxiety. Well, the answer is very simple. I'm very comfortable 'not knowing' because 11 years of executive leadership coaching has shown me how incredibly valuable 'not knowing' can be.

'Not knowing" frees me to...

  • Make less assumptions.
  • Let go of expectations.
  • Ask more questions.

Instead of insisting on arriving at certain conclusions or finding instant answers to troubling challenges, I travel on a coaching journey of exploration, discovery and breakthroughs with women entrepreneurs, executives and nonprofit leaders. Together, we navigate familiar and unchartered landscapes to find their path through or around obstacles and difficulties they encounter in their work.

Like you, these phenomenal human beings are committed to making a meaningful difference in the world. Their practice of resilience and courage in the face of uncertainty and unexpected change inspires me to...

  • Listen without judgment.
  • Hear what is not being said.
  • Experience 'not knowing'.

'Not knowing' invites me to share objective observations and fresh perspectives based on my...

  • Understanding the nuances of context in their stories. 
  • Sensing the invisible connections in their experiences.
  • Seeing what's possible now in their leadership and their businesses.

As our coaching conversations unfold, leaders experience a-ha moments, deeply enriching insights, and major breakthroughs. These experiences enable them to let go of unproductive ways of thinking and acting. Instead, they tap into the wealth of who they are — their natural gifts and talents. From this richer sense of self, they engage in practices that allow them to thrive in their businesses and lives.

Transform & Thrive in 2012

Get comfortable 'not knowing' because 2012 is full of twists, turns and surprises. Actually, that's good news! Yet you will have to navigate much more unfamiliar and unchartered terrain. If you would like a seasoned guide — a life-long traveler who is very comfortable navigating the unknown, contact me

"As a traveler, I'm very comfortable navigating the unknown - allowing the journey to tell me what I need to know about the destination and how best to get there. That's why it's fun helping leaders navigate the unknown, presented by unexpected obstacles and daunting challenges. With confidence and courage learn to sense what's not yet visible — new possibilities, options and opportunities to transform yourself and thrive in business and life in 2012 with Simply the Best Coaching." ~Sylvia Warren, MBA | Consciousness Coach
