Andrea Goodridge quote about being a great you

Do you feel disconnected from your work and life?

  • You’re feeling unfulfilled as you endure another day bumbling along, just
    going through the motions
  • Everything seems chaotic, as you feel overwhelmed just doing ‘stuff’ and
    lack focus on what’s important
  • You’re starting to second guess yourself and avoid making decisions, afraid of making the wrong move

And while you feel like this, it saps your energy, and your confidence feels
like it’s been buried deep within you.

It’s OK …you’ve lost sight of who you really are.

 

…it’s time to find the ‘real you.’

And when I say the real you, I mean who you really are (not the ‘pretend you’ you carry around to make the world think you’re OK).

Over the last twenty years, I’ve helped many leaders flourish, including: Business Owners, Chief Executives, Executive Directors, Head teachers, Heads of Service, Senior Managers, Councillors and Clinicians.

So no matter what you feel is stopping you from feeling happy and positive, or standing in the way of you achieving results – whether it’s your family, your colleagues, your working environment or the culture of your organisation – I promise you, it isn’t that!

My challenge is always, let’s start with YOU!

Quote It's time to give yourself permission to be you

What's included?

Find the Real You is an eight week course that will help you rediscover who you really are. In essence, it’s your unique individual brand profile. 

As well as boosting your efforts and focus in both work and life, it will help you be yourself so you can do what’s important to you, say no to just ‘stuff,’ and take control of your career. All through gaining a greater understanding of YOU. 

It’s a mix of self-study, peer learning, and facilitated learning and includes:

Training Modules. A new training module which is revealed each week. This includes a variety of online tutorials, and downloadable learning resources, e.g. workbooks, presentations with theories and concepts, online questionnaires, articles.

Self-study. You’ll be asked to reflect on the learning materials by doing the deep dive exercises and journal independently. This is likely to take 1 hour per week. These activities are not the ‘fill in the blank’ type templates where you can do them very quickly and move on to the next thing! They’re designed to dig deep beyond the superficial level, as well as learning new theories and concepts to help things ‘make sense.’ Because it’s only when you explore at a deeper level that you get the ‘aha’ moments and personal breakthroughs.

Online Community. To help you with your self-study, there’s an online community where you’ll find your online peers. It’s here where you can ask questions, get guidance, learn from each other, and challenge your thinking. Everyone in the online community has come together for a shared purpose around self-discovery and finding who they really are, so they’ll understand where you’re coming from with your questions. Whoever you normally speak to / pester when you get home, give them a break for eight weeks, and ask your peers in the community instead.

Live Group Calls. In weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8, there will be a live group call, where you’ll meet your peers over video chat. On each call, you’ll get the opportunity to discuss the content of the modules in more detail, share your experiences and learn from others. You can also ask Andrea any questions relating to the content. 

Access to Andrea. Throughout the course Andrea will guide you and your peers through the learning process so you won’t be alone. She’ll guide you through the sequence of activities so you won’t get stuck with where to start, you can just get on with doing it.

Implementation Weeks. The questions within the activities are designed so they take you on a deeper exploration. They demand deep thinking, honesty and self-compassion. So to be kind to yourself, there are two weeks where no new content is revealed, which gives you an opportunity to take in your personal insights, catch up, and implement your learning.

And something really special – a PANIC BUTTON. You can hit your panic button once a month during the course. This is something really special – a 15 min call with Andrea for when that unexpected moment comes up, you’re struggling with what to do, and you just need to talk it through with someone.  The key with this is that there are slots available for this every day to make sure you get the help you need, when you need it.

Accessible Online. As the course is online, it means you can learn from anywhere as long as you have a good internet connection. It also enables you to meet peers from around the globe.

Finding the real you doesn’t happen by magic! 

It really is going to take effort on your part. It’s going to take you making a commitment to yourself to schedule 1 hr per week to do the self-study, and 1 hr every other week for the live group calls. 

When you consider what this will bring you, believe me it’s worth it! 

 

Don’t take my word for it – take theirs!

 

When I started working with Andrea, I was unclear of my values and needed to revisit my vision and strengths. Andrea kept things simple and gave me the frameworks to facilitate my thinking. What stood out for me in the coaching sessions was the simplicity of getting to my core values. I had all the answers, but needed to spend the time to look at them in detail without any other distractions. Now I’m being my authentic-self more of the time, building relationships with new colleagues and making decisions based on my values. Thank you Andrea, your skill in peeling back the layers, really helped me look at my inner core and built up a greater understanding of myself.

Andrea’s new online programme about finding self was informative, emotional, enlightening and rewarding. Great resources, supportive online community. Highly recommend.

Really enjoyed participating in a pilot for Andrea’s programme “Find the Real You”. The modules have been so helpful and have prompted me to do some long overdue reflection about what works for me and how to best utilise my passion and harness energy from the work I do.

Andrea Goodridge - Ad Florem - Leadership Coach and Facilitator

About Andrea

Andrea Goodridge is a qualified coach and leadership development consultant.

She set up Ad Florem in October 2015 when she made the decision to only do activities that energised her or where she could add value. 

Basically, if she’s not going to feel it, and be energised by it, she won’t perform at her best! She encourages her clients to do the same for themselves.

Once you stop ‘going through the motions’ and start focusing on results you value, you’ll engage with your work and get better results.

It starts with you!

Her 20 years’ experience of supporting leaders and business owners has proven this, and is based on taking time out to reflect, recharge and refocus on you.

Many of Andrea’s clients are looking to regain their confidence to live their ‘real self’ and shake off their ‘pretend self.’

She also has a popular blog where she shares practical tips and tactics on self-leadership, has featured in various publications and podcasts, and won Best Leadership Development Consultancy 2019 in the Northern Enterprise Awards.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each week a new training module will be revealed. You can work through the learning materials in your own time that week. The live group calls will take place in weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8.

 

Approximately 1 hour per week to focus on the learning materials, reflect and capture your thoughts, and commit to your weekly actions. In addition, the live group calls, which are 1 hour, will take place in weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8.

 

You will have access to the learning materials and online community for the duration of the course.

To help you with your self-study, there’s an online community where you’ll find your online peers. It’s here where you can ask questions, get guidance, learn from each other, and challenge your thinking. Think of it as your supportive network where you can think aloud, explore your thinking and boost your courage to take action. Everyone in the online community has come together for a shared purpose around self-discovery and finding who they really are, so they’ll understand where you’re coming from with your questions. Whoever you normally speak to / pester when you get home, give them a break for eight weeks, and ask your peers in the community instead.

There’s also the live group calls in weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8 where you’ll meet your peers over video chat. On each call, you’ll get the opportunity to discuss the content of the modules in more detail, share your experiences and learn from others. You can also ask Andrea any questions relating to the content. 

Throughout the course, Andrea will guide you and your peers through the learning process so you won’t be alone. She’ll guide you through the sequence of activities so you won’t get stuck with where to start, you can just get on with doing it.

 

 

People like you who are:

– Open minded, and willing to try new ways of learning, to develop outside your comfort zone

– Serious in your intent to change, see through your commitments and inform Andrea when things aren’t working for you

– Curious, through reflection, exploration, and challenge, so you can develop your self-awareness

– Positive about yourself, so you can feel confident in yourself and have belief in your abilities

 

That feeling of overwhelm is because you’re trying to be everything to everyone. What you’ll learn in this programme is that making time for you isn’t a day at the spa or a week’s holiday. It’s prioritising the small daily actions that support you be the ‘real you.’ It might feel like you don’t have time, but you’ll soon realise that you gain back that time and more, thanks to increased energy, focus and confidence.

Great! I’d love to answer them. You can either drop me a mail or you can book in a call here. Speak soon.

One last thing ...

I know it can feel like a huge stretch to do something for yourself.

– To put money down on something that doesn’t seem to directly affect your family or your business

But here’s the thing …

– If you don’t start to explore who you really are, things will continue to be a struggle

– You’ll stay disconnected, overwhelmed, and you’ll continue to play out the ‘pretend you’

You have to stop and ask yourself “why?”

How about joining me in learning a new way?

– One that gives you permission to be you, even when everyone’s watching!

Find the Real You - it's time to stop pretending and start feeling proud!
