WORDS: MORANA SMOLCIC, LIFE/ORGANIZATIONAL COACH, LAW OF ATTRACTION PRACTITIONER
If someone told me a few years ago that I will live my passion, I would probably ask: “Really? But when? What? How?” That happened in 2016 as an AHA moment during a coaching session with my career coach, Marika Gillis. Marika knew how to push me to look deeper in my unopened box of true desires and make them visible and achievable. I realized then that I want to be a coach and help others find their true passion and purpose in life. During my 15 years+ of legal practice in advocacy, public notary and in corporate sector I had great moments of fulfilment. However, I felt deep down that there was something else I could offer to the world and make it the better place. And this realization revealed itself in the coaching practice. Throughout my ICF accredited training program as a certified Organizational Coach (Systemic Coach), and ongoing learning towards ICF ACC accreditation, I discovered the beauty of encouraging and supporting others to believe in themselves, to be or to have whatever they desire. Additional knowledge gained through the Law of Attraction and team coaching training uplifted my confidence and gave me wings to fly without limitations.
My coaching niche has appeared in creation of a Sail In A Moment Approach (www.sailinamoment.com) , focusing on practical usage of the power of present moment and the law of attraction techniques which aim to support clients on their growth journeys.
Name of the product: Butterfly Workshop – Life Coaching Rehearsals
Not long ago after I jumped into entrepreneurial and coaching industry, my life path has flown into more playful direction. And this playfulness came to life in the form of the Butterfly Workshop.
Ingredients: Life group coaching through theater concepts
Land of origin: Croatia & South Korea
Partnership with a theatre artist and a dear friend, Jooyoung Song, has merged our two passions, theatre and life coaching together in a completely new, unique product called – Life Coaching Rehearsals.
Life Coaching Rehearsals, in the format of Butterfly Workshop, represents the process of stepping out of the comfort zone (our “cocoon”) and revealing our true potential. The cornerstones of our approach are spontaneity and creativity that can be achieved through acceptance of the present moment, enjoyment and enthusiasm. Underlying notion we deliver is to break the common belief that life has to be a very serious mission and that we need to work hard to accomplish something. The truth is often completely opposite. People who allow themselves to be playful and do not take life circumstances too seriously (what we are doing right now J) are more creative and live a happier life. So our emphasis is on challenging others to step out of their comfort zone, make mistakes, and have “a life rehearsal” in a spontaneous, creative and playful way. Adapted techniques from the Theater are our tools to lead people through the self-discovery journey. Coaching mindset is an integral part that follows each theater activity by having reflective discussions.
Made in China
Interestingly, my coaching path was made in China, far away from my home country. That’s another proof that fulfilment in life is reachable anywhere. Most important elements to make your goals happen are strong willingness, commitment, and lots of fun!
