1. EDITORS NOTE
By Stephanie Dawson-Cosser
At Work & Family Matters 2018 has been an exciting year of new beginnings for me –
We have a new website www.stephdawsoncosser.com with a number of new online and face to face services.
One of my passions in life is enabling people to connect – with self and with others; at work and at home. So my year has been filled with opportunities to teach individuals, couples and groups and organizational teams, about personal-mastery; learning how to listen to each other; collaborate and have meetings which are really productive.
In addition, we have brought the Enneagram, into the workplace for teams which have been a very exciting transformative tool to work with in developing team understanding and leadership.
“Ho-Ho-Ho – Christmas fun fact”
Have you listened to the song ‘The 12 Days of Christmas?’ If you received all the presents that are mentioned there in the song, you would have a total of 364 presents! Every Christmas, one million letters are addressed to Santa Clause at his own postal code: “HOH OHO, North Pole, Canda.
2. WHAT HAVE I BEEN UP TO?
Vision Board Workshops
(2019 & Beyond)
I hosted my very first Vision Board Workshop and it was a huge success. A vision board is a tool used to help clarify, concentrate and maintain focus on a specific life goal. Literally, a vision board is any sort of board on which you display images that represent whatever you want to be, do or have in your life.
New Exciting Workshop
2018 has been a very rewarding year.
While continuing to work with individuals and couples about their personal lives and relationships, I have also been working with many SME business owners and executives as a thinking partner, providing a confidential space for business and strategy planning and leadership coaching.
The Earth Centre
This year I have worked with a team of coaches at the Earth Centre offering Equine Leadership workshops. We can learn so much with and from horses. https://www.earthcentre.org.za/ or (011 958 5044)
3. AROUND THE WORLD
My footprint has been increasing as I have been coaching and facilitating in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, and Port Elizabeth and internationally on Skype to the UK and the USA.
If you are reading this letter somewhere other than Johannesburg, with the aid of technology, coaching is possible everywhere!
4. HOLIDAY ADVICE
This week the schools break up and the South African summer holidays are almost here.
