Work-Life Balance

Your Fall Focus with New School Year Excitement

Kay Fittes, August, 2017

No matter what the season or the stage of your career, balancing work and life successfully can always be challenging.  With the start of the new school year and fall just around the corner, this can be the season to renew and refresh your career goals.  At the start of the summer, we focused on the need to find your high-heeled equilibrium during the summer months when attitudes relax.

As July and August come to a close, work, school, volunteer and really everything seems to rev up to get back to business.  This new attitude allows for a fresh start; however, you now have opportunity to hang onto the summer balance tools that may have worked especially well for you.

Each month in this section, Kay offers actionable career consulting tips.

Tips on Your Fall Reset:
Ask Yourself . . .

  1. What do I have to do?  Ask yourself, what is on my list as a must-do?  Be very clear with yourself about the tasks, like going back to school and buying school supplies, do you have to accomplish.  For example, if you’ve put off talking with your boss about your future with the company, a possible promotion or a raise.  Now is as good a time as any to take that step as something you must do to advance and move forward.

  2. What should I do?  Sit down and make a list of what you should get done – focus on the to-do items that will net a desired outcome or simply keep balance in your life.  Ask yourself if the issues you worry about are more obsessions that real problems.  Once you’re able to separate and focus on the most meaningful, results-oriented steps that you actually can control, then you’re onto something!

  3. What do I want to do?  Along with this question, ask yourself who am I really trying to serve?  Make sure you serve yourself and tackle all the other demands with a measured approach.  This may take us back to reusing some of our summer balance tools to keep your equilibrium.  When it comes to fall focus, and refreshing your career goals, whatever you do only works if it works for you.

Client Case Study - Ann Pickens

Ann Pickens

I first met Kay when she presented a breakout session at the Spring 2017 Toastmasters Conference.  I was inspired by how she commanded the room with ease.  Afterwards, I went and spoke with her at her table, discussing my past work experience and how I had been bullied by my bosses for the last 10 years.  My story caused her eyes to brighten, and the discussion turned to coaching.  I had never dreamed that a coach, with the enthusiasm and zeal that Kay has, would be the path to freedom.

The questions that Kay asked made me look to my core beliefs, fears and barriers, especially the self-limiting beliefs.  I am currently helping with a self-awareness class called “Freedom 101: Dealing with Confinement”, (the confinement being the perspective we each have on our own life) which has helped me to regain my voice and to find my passion for helping others.  Kay took my new foundation and tweaked it for the business world.  She is so positive and upbeat, I couldn't help but walk away from each coaching session feeling more empowered.  Not only on the job, but in my personal life as well!

With Kay’s guidance, I was able to laser in on my vision statement: To bring joy and hope wherever I go.  I also strive to inspire others to reach their limitless potential.  With my vision statement in front of me, I truly move with purpose, regardless of my surroundings.  I can be dealing with the CEO of a company or mentoring in the jail setting.  I have stepped into my greatness and continue to strive for my limitless potential every day.  Opportunities are beginning to open up, and with Kay’s guidance, I am being very proactive to position myself as the top candidate for the position.

In Freedom 101, this class is about awareness.  I had begun to look at my past and realized that I was in a rut – both on the job and in my personal life.  Ms. Fittes was able to give me a fresh perspective on myself.  We would talk about a topic; I would answer; then she would rephrase it in such a way that I began to believe in myself.  I realized that I have worth with value to offer in my workplace, as well as the world.  I am MORE than just an employee.

With the input I have to offer, I add value to every situation.  The exciting thing about Freedom 101 is that it is a wonderful tool for anyone who is dealing with any type of addiction issues such as workaholism, gambling, drugs, alcohol, shopping, people pleasing…the list goes on.  We are based in St. Marys, Ohio, and are willing to bring our class to you and a small group of friends.  The thrill I get when someone has an "AHA" moment of clarity, is what truly has inspired my mission statement!
