As coaches we have a duty of care for the wellness of the clients that we work with – and as leaders, we have a duty of care for the wellness of the teams that we manage.
But before we support our direct reports or clients –in terms of their wellness – it’s really critical for you and I as care-providers to look after our own wellness first.
And, when I use the word wellness, I mean physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual wellness.
But, how can we support others if we do not focus on our own self-care first?
Now, in addition to your work related responsibilities if you are managing your home, and are a care giver to children, elder parents, or a loved one who is ill, the importance of self-care is intensified.
You now have to focus on EXTREME SELF-CARE!!
Cheryl Richardson in her book, The Art of Extreme Self-Care provides this extreme self-care kit in chapter 12; and I’ve extracted some of the key elements that I believe will work for you and I.
I’ve been using this assessment as process to be followed, and also using the assessment as a way to stay on track, assess progress, and be alert to areas where I need help. It’s been really effective for my coaching clients too!
