When I first met Kim I was intimidated. It was almost twenty years ago. She was selling a company that had created a unique hiring assessment to help attract and retain real estate agents. I had recently started my first corporate real estate job at Royal LePage Canada and was intent on making changes in the industry. She was confident, she was smart, she was driven, she was opinionated and I loved everything about her energy.
She was convinced that if a person could control their mindset and focus they could reach new levels of fulfillment and success. This was back in the day before these things were being talked about as part of the mainstream.
So we put together a pilot of real estate agents to beta her new coaching program. The rest as they say is history. All these years later and here we are.
Kim has gone on to develop Frame of Mind Coaching into a world class resource for executives across many industries. One of the things I admire most about her, is her commitment to constant growth and development.
I learned many lessons from Kim that I carry with me today:
- Write it down. I’ve never been good at journalling but I do write everything down. When I’m struggling with a situation or a problem I write it down. There is something very powerful about committing thoughts to paper (or screen).
- Talk it through. We all need a sounding board who will challenge and support us without judgement.
- Listen with your ears and your eyes. Think about this one for a second. 🙂
Recently Kim inviting me to join her on a Frame of Mind Coaching Podcast. I hope you’ll take a listen. We tried to give lots of take aways!
