Treasure Maps - a simple tool to help you get to where you want to go
I work with people who need a bit of a helping hand to rediscover what makes them shine, be energised and succeed. This post gives you a simple tool to help you succeed and overcome barriers
Kim Morgan introduced me to this tool a few months back and I love it.
Flexible, energising and transformational and a useful structure you can use to help you move forward. I've used it around projects, challenges, relationships and conversations
The Treasure Map is a great tool to help you visualise where you want to get to, understand what's stopping you and then find the ways that will help you move towards success.
Have a go:
- visualise success and draw/write words to describe what's happening them. Be as specific as you can - what is happening, what are you seeing, what are you doing, what results have you secured, what are people saying, how are you feeling, how are you celebrating your success?
- draw or write words to describe where you are now;
- think about what's stopping you from getting there, write down each barrier
- take each barrier or hurdle at a time and write down the actions you took which helped you get to your future world
- design your stepping stones to get you to success.
Why do I love this tool? I think it's because it gives you control, frees up creativity and is so flexible.
Looking back on my NLP training many years ago I always loved work around well-formed outcomes and future pacing. The Treasure Map builds on these NLP approaches and really works.
A bit about me
As a former Chief Executive, I now work as an independent coach and mentor. I love my work as a coach and get great satisfaction and joy from watching my clients grow and succeed
My clients often describe their work with me as challenging, energising, thought provoking and practical. Take a look at my Linked In page to get a feel for how client's see their experience of investing in coaching
Outside of my coaching work, I paint a bit, sew bright. flowery fabric together to make quilts, help run a community Arts Festival and support my husband's studio glass business
Please get in touch if I can ever be of any help.
