How we bring our WHY to life in our business

  • The name of our business is an adaptation of the word “Authentic”. Being authentic is our intention with every interaction and decision we make. It is the core value that drives how we operate as a business.
  • By helping our clients identify and navigate toward their NorthStar, we fulfill our purpose of helping people live more authentic lives that align with their core values.
  • Our why is driven by the belief that when we consciously choose the person we wish to be, it is a choice that reflects the highest vision of our self. In so doing, we are able to align all that we say, do and believe with our core values and our North Star.

MY COACHING PHILOSOPHY

I work with you on an exploratory journey by asking you powerful questions of yourself so you can clearly identify your North Star – your highest personal aspiration.

My coaching practice is a future-focused one of helping clients determine and achieve professional and personal goals. I focus on where you are now and the future direction you wish to pursue. I leverage neuro-linguistic programming based on the work of Dr. Milton Erickson as allows for a practical application of how people think and process information.

I select from several tools and resources to help you set and reach goals. Psychological intervention is outside the scope of our role. We use innovative thinking to approach a situation for the possibilities it presents — solutions vs. problems.

Together we discuss and uncover challenges and observations. You are the expert of your own life. You are capable and resourceful even when in times when you might feel the opposite. Working with a coach should make you feel safe, supported and in a judgement-free environment where you have a strategic thinking partner to discuss your goals and design a plan that will move you in the direction that aligns with your values and what brings you energy and joy.

Applying this coaching model, I work with you to help create permanent change.

You’ll always feel SUPPORT

Safe – we provide a safe haven for confidential conversations

Understood – we provide a judgement-free zone where “What if?” ideas are encouraged

Proud – we celebrate our client’s accomplishments no matter the size

Poised – we help position our clients for success by readying them to tackle even their biggest challenges confidently and courageously

Optimistic – we believe our clients are resourceful and capable of achieving their goals

Responsive – we build client connections based on rapport, empathy, compassion and a deep sense of gratitude

Trust – we build trust one interaction and one decision at a time

PROFESSIONAL / LEADERSHIP COACHING

Working with a professional coach helps you identify your personal values, your purpose and the limitless possibilities that exist within you. We work with you on an exploratory journey by asking you powerful questions of yourself so you can clearly identify your North Star – your highest personal aspiration.

When you can see your North Star,
you have a way to stay on course,
no matter where you are.

When your North Star appears, it’s so much easier to simplify your choices because you’re always guided on your path. When you’re clear about your North Star, you can more easily align your energy, emotions and actions in the service of your personal vision.

Working with a coach helps you define your North Star objectives – your aspirational goals that motivate, inspire and keep you uplifted as meteors of conflict, challenge and change threaten to tilt you off course.

As a leader, you may feel you are too busy to stop and examine what might be limiting you from accomplishing your goals or influencing others to attain theirs. When you work with a professional coach, you gift yourself with time to explore what is blocking you from having an impact that will make a difference.

When you work with Authentika, you gift yourself:

  • A strategic thinking partner to help you on your leadership journey
  • A safe harbour where you can share your thoughts in a safe space
    that is free from judgment and remains 100% confidential
  • A challenger of ideas, beliefs, biases
  • An explorer of solutions that align with your North Star orientation
  • A touchstone to measure action and results

First, let’s define Ayurveda. (pronounced “eye-your-vaaydah”)

It is a 5,000 year old system of natural healing that originates in the Vedic culture of India. Ayurveda is made up of 2 Sanskrit words: Ayus – meaning “life” and Veda — meaning “science”. So Ayurveda is the science or wisdom of life. People have been practicing Ayurveda for 5,000 years and it is designed to help you stay vital, healthy and able to reach your full potential.

What is a dosha? (source: The Chopra Center)
In Ayurveda, the five elements that are found in all living things—ether, air, fire, water, and earth—are the
building blocks of life. While this foundation unites all humans, the manifestation of those elements through the doshas is what gives rise to our differences. How the three doshas appear, and in what proportion, is what makes each of us unique.

The 3 Doshas:

  • The fiery and intense Pitta type may enjoy the occasional power trip. She will devour a mountain of food with ravenous hunger and yet be ready to eat again when it comes to the next meal.
  • In contrast, a delicate Vata can never seem to get warm. She will nibble, snack, and graze her way through the day, and she may feel the need to rest often. She’s also inclined to talk about a number of diverse subjects,
  • The contented Kapha type may, with great deliberation, consume three pieces of cake. She will spend quality time curled up on a couch making phone calls to loved ones with uplifting, motherly advice.

The role the doshas play is a dynamic one, constantly changing in response to weather, conditions, and stress. The habits—good or bad—that you create are manifestations of your dosha. You may be inclined to go a bit overboard on ice cream, spend too much time talking on the phone late at night, or neglect sleep when you need it most.

Whatever your habits, they all result in a shift in your make-up which could lead to the beginnings of disease if you balance yourself with care and a healthy diet.

Getting to know and appreciate your dosha is key to knowing yourself. It provides clues for what you should eat and what things you should address when your energy gets out of whack. The more you know about what may cause certain reactions or tendencies, the easier it will be to balance them.
