Life happens….medical situation, weather event, or travel conundrum with no WiFI. You might also be the executor of a will for your parents or adult children, but does that will specify their digital legacy and how they want that handled?You could cover one of these topics in a coaching session with Annette:

 

Back Up Your Business!®️

  • Policies and procedures for the systems and or social media you use and how to interact with clients or followers.
  • Where’s the Money? Know where the money comes in, how it leaves, and make sure you aren’t the only one who has that information.
  • If something does happen, even temporarily, what you would want your customers, vendors, social media followers, etc. to know and how would they find out?

Back Up Your Life!®️

  • Who can get to my passwords and online accounts if something happened to me?
  • If I got into an accident, would my loved ones know how I’d want them to handle things?
  • Do I have everything valuable in my house documented and stored somewhere safe?
  • Do I know how to handle the digital legacy of my elderly parents or my adult children if they need my help?

After seeing three people still have profiles on LinkedIn who have died in the last two years, I know how important it is to have something in place to remove your digital footprint. As someone who suffered an unexpected head injury and didn’t know what a toothbrush was for, having a plan in place for my husband to know who to call and how to alert people, was important for my business. Victim of credit card fraud? Yep, that too, and having an effective password management system and plan has saved us loads of time and money.

  • Debrief your top five strengths, how they show up for you, and where you may not be fully tapping into your potential.
  • Improve your communication, impact, and relationships with yourself and others.
  • Apply your strengths to your management and career to get the greatest results possible!
Learning my Top Five Strengths was truly enlightening for me. I realized that what I sometimes saw as faults were actually what made me excel and I could use those to my best advantage. Christina helped me approach my assistant with a difficult conversation that had been plaguing me for months, all because she knew how our perspectives were different. Neither of us was right or wrong, we just weren’t in sync with the other’s needs.

  • Improve your ability to engage members of your team, whether speaking in front of the group, in a face-to-face meeting, video conference, or telephone call.

Do you think your voicemail greeting doesn’t matter? Wrong! It’s often the first impression, and Helen has helped both me and my clients have a voice of confidence in several situations. One client said that in one session, she helped him with the problem of talking too fast on calls, something he had been working on for thirty years.

Remember how I felt video conferencing was on the cusp of being the norm?

Remember how I was freaking out about the idea of video conferencing clients?

Remember how you brought Helen into my life to teach me how to do it with confidence?

Now, I’m not only confidently video-conferencing clients, I helped set up my wife so she can conduct psychotherapy sessions online. It’s been very rewarding to help her help others when they need it most. Thank you yet again—your work continues benefiting me!
