Closed-ended & measurable
My absolute pet peeve is open-ended change interventions. From counselling to coaching and consulting, we've all come across those supposed 6-8 sessions you need, but "some people need more, some people need less!" Don't get me wrong, many ethical practitioners will offer your money back if you don't see results, because they genuinely care. But will you ask? And are the results even measurable? My view is that a) they should be and b) all individuals have the right to be self-contained survivors and achievers. So I only deliver closed-ended change programmes that are both measurable and results oriented. And if by the end of our time together you're not satisfied, I'll refund your entire investment, every penny, no dramas.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
