In today’s 24/7 world, work-life balance may be a myth but a compelling argument still exists (and brain science supports the need) for cultivating professional and personal integration.
One of Mimi Darmstadter’s guiding values as a coach is her belief that to be professionally effective and happy, purposeful activities outside of one’s day “job” are also critically important.
Transcending both her executive coaching and career transition coaching services is a focus on her client’s capacity to “hold” and embrace BOTH their professional and personal lives.
Mimi works with her clients to:
- identify, explore and invest in meaningful personal activities; value- and vision-inspired,
- accept and manage competing “work-life” priorities with grace, not guilt, and
- enhance skills and behaviors that contribute to an integrated lifestyle (e.g. boundary setting, delegation, letting go of control, being “imperfect”).
Mimi also brings dose of reality to “balance” issues. There are indeed times when her clients’ work and life demands are difficult, if not impossible, to reconcile.
To that end, she partners with them to cultivate regularity and non-negotiable space for “breaks” and to develop “simple” strategies for stress management and renewal including:
- Physical activity (e.g. yoga, walking/running, dance)
