Viktor Frankl, a concentration camp survivor and the author of ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’, is the founder of Logotherapy (Logos = meaning in Greek). It is premised on the belief that human beings have the unique ability to make meaning of their lives. They do this by learning to respond, rather than react, to what is happening to them. The need for people, in their personal and working lives, to take responsibility for themselves and their lives has never been greater. Moreover, entrepreneurs and managers, faced with a daily barrage of choices and decisions, need to ensure that their thinking and decision-making processes are as clear as possible. Logotherapeutic coaching is a way for people to achieve clarity and deal with issues that may be hindering their behaviour or performance.
I am a qualified logotherapist and have combined the philosophy of logotherapy with the best coaching tools to create a process in which participants learn to:
- Identify habitual thought processes
- Increase self-awareness and identify limiting beliefs
- Respond (rather than react)
- Identify success inhibitors and reduce them
- Build better relationships
- Communicate more clearly
- Become more present- and future-oriented (by dealing with ‘baggage’)
- Become more disciplined
- Manage boundaries
- Diagnose issues and become solutions-focused
- Become a better leader!
Note: Logotherapeutic coaching is not intended as a long-term engagement, nor is it psychoanalytical in nature i.e. it is not about looking backwards. Rather, it is focused on the present and future and is action-oriented. Clients are welcome to continue engaging with the logotherapist at a frequency of their choosing and for as long as they wish.
