Sitting and Staring?

by Linda Feinholz · 0 comments

Don’t think that sitting staring out the window for ten minutes, imagining a great vacation, is enough to anchor a change. So many people enter into business and spend years in that business environment without having any idea of what they want, or what is possible to get out of their business. For that reason I have eight different visioning exercises I take my clients through in order to uncover and define their Vision.

It’s no different in large corporations, in entrepreneurial endeavors, or in the legal or insurance profession. In fact, most business owners are working so hard in their businesses that they don’t have time to work ‘on’ them. As a result, they’ve become slaves to their business.


What triggers our visions

by Linda Feinholz · 0 comments

For myself, my first experience of a Breakthrough Vision was while longing to learn a new language. My second was while trying to escape high school, the third while wanting to get a production process smooth-flowing and easy. The fourth occurred while being frustrated about having to duplicate efforts, and the fifth was while wanting the entire workflow… to flow.

I could ‘see’ the different futures I wanted.

So what about you? If someone could wave a magic wand and suddenly change something about your chosen profession or business, what one thing would you have them change?

Creating Appreciation In Your Business

by Linda Feinholz December 27, 2008

© 2008 Linda Feinholz. So often our focus is on what’s ‘not yet’ done, what is sitting on our To Do list, and what we ‘ought to’ be getting to but haven’t yet completed. Children have a great deal to teach us about what motivates our hearts and gives us the impetus to put our […]
