Personal Coaching for the Mindful Leader

Hello there, I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Candy Motzek and I’m an experienced, credentialed Life and Leadership Coach. I’ve had the pleasure of working with hundreds of individuals, professionals and leaders to get clear on what they want to achieve, and to create a meaningful and rewarding life.

I know why you’re here and I’m glad you found me! How’s your life been lately? Are you feeling totally stressed, swamped and pulled? Do you know which way is up?

You’ve always been so capable and driven, dedicated, decisive. Now you’re just exhausted. Being a leader is a huge challenge. It’s what you craved for so long but now you find the demands overwhelming and you no longer know which way to turn. Heck you’ve got no LIFE left in your life.

Remember when this was fun? Your life, I mean. Now you drag yourself from meeting to meeting, your calendar is double (sometimes triple) booked. Every morning starts in a rush and you don’t get a chance to catch your breath let alone have time to eat lunch or take a pee. When you arrive home you’re so exhausted you’ve got nothing left for yourself or your partner. I bet you are really angry and ashamed this is what your life has come to. Why did nobody tell you? How did it get so frustrating? How indeed?

Does this sound familiar?

  • You’re smart and dedicated. I mean, really smart, but you can’t figure out where you lost your connection to yourself. Lately, you’ve begun to question your goals and to crave more meaningful success in your life and business.
  • You’re super stressed, hanging on by your fingernails. You snap and glare, barely containing your resentment. You haven’t taken time off for weeks. You long for clarity, balance and effectiveness.
  • You work long hours to keep up. But you’re always falling further behind. All the while you’re terrified of failing at your job, or having your business fall apart. You would give anything to get your spark and confidence back and to spend time with your family and friends.
  • You’ve forgotten how to dream and have fun. Nothing feels sweet anymore. You love to be healthy and get outside. But these days the closest you get is looking out your windshield during your daily commute.
  • You love your team, but you feel lonely and isolated. Everyone looks up to you but you can’t share your fears with them. You wish you felt more connected to the people around you.

Personal and Professional Development Coaching could be the solution to your challenges. You’re safe here. Don’t worry, lots of people feel this way every day. I frequently hear these challenges in my coaching practice and it breaks my heart. There is good news; you can do something about it. Guess what? It’s easy and flexible and totally customized to your needs.

Did you know Professional Coaching is part science and part art? This relatively new professional service consistently delivers high value. According to the International Coaching Federation (ICF), an amazing 99% of people are satisfied, or very satisfied, with their coaching experience and more than 96% would engage a coach in the future. Personal and Professional Development Coaching can provide the fast track to even greater levels of success and fulfillment in all areas of your life.

Come on in to my comfy office and pull up a chair. Take your shoes off and put up your feet. I’ll even pour you a cup of (virtual) tea 🙂 I am so glad to get to know you. I’ll let you in on a little secret. We’re kindred spirits you and I. I’ve been where you are. Then I escaped and made the journey to a deeply meaningful life. You can have a life you love too.

People who work with me learn how to:

  •  Feel. Yes, that’s right they start to feel again. They regain their vitality and zest and it’s so satisfying.
  • Take measurable steps towards setting boundaries. They learn how to say “not right now”, “no thanks”, “it’s not for me”… a word “NO”.
  • Take practical steps to stop being “people pleasers” and learn how to feel satisfied in their own skin.
  • Learn strategies to overcome their fear of ‘not being enough’ or ‘being an imposter’.
  • Take weekends off (and wonderful vacations too) all without guilt. They learn how to REST and still get all their commitments met.
  • Make progress towards creating connection and spend rewarding time with their family and friends.
