Most people turn to professional coaching or development programs to focus on the appearance of their canopy, assuming that pruning the leaves to a state of “full” or “lush” or “balanced” equates to a state of thriving.
We commonly hear things like, “I want to work on my confidence,” “Help me change my habits to get higher self-esteem,” “I want to be more compelling,” and “Give me techniques to stop procrastinating.”
At AoP, we don’t want you to waste your time just “pruning leaves” without minding the health of the whole tree. For a tree, for you, to really thrive all parts of the tree need to be healthy and connected – from the roots (relationship to self) to the trunk (relationships with others), to the branches and leaves (results and attributes). When we address the totality of your experience, from self-perception to the resulting effects – we will to achieve real, long-term transformation.
This is what Amy & AoP Programs Address.
Most organizations work on leadership development expecting solutions that “prune the canopy.” That is, they look for ways to achieve specific goals such as:
While techniques “that prune” may satisfy the need for a time, they’re ultimately limited.
Starting at the “roots,” our clients will gain the courage to be honest with themselves about the fears they may hold or don’t want to acknowledge and with heightened self-awareness, they embody the art and science of trust, and sustain authentic relationships. From this foundation plus the right tools, processes and frameworks pulled from the appropriate disciplines we produce desired “goals” and results. This holistic approach produces stronger, lasting change and is the cause of a greater transformation.
