"IMAGINE A WORLD"
Imagine a world where everyone understands that they create their own success, solutions, ease, happiness and opportunities. A world where there is no blame because everyone understands that in the same way they create their own success and happiness they also create and perpetuate their own problems and discontent. At Soul Designs we imagine this world every day. We strive to inspire personal and social responsibility while dramatically improving the lives of our clients and the result they can achieve.
ABOUT SOUL DESIGNS
Soul Designs is where leaders, individuals and coaches come to excel in their roles and lives, find their “what next?” and develop new skills. If you answer “yes” to two or more of the statements below, you know you are in the right place.
You’re ready for a change.
You want to improve.
You want to learn something new and you want it to ‘stick’.
You are seeking guidance and support.
You want someone to have your back.
You’ve tried everything but keep ending up in the same place..
You want to have more impact and influence.
You want more accountability.
You feel stressed often.
You want sustainable results.
You work hard, do all the right things but still end up angry, frustrated, irritated and tired.
You have a sense that there is something more but not sure where to start.
You want to improve some or all of your relationships.
You are tired of spending your time and energy handling problems or putting out fires.
You want to grow your skills.
You want to WIN at work and life.
At this point you might be thinking that coaching could be right for you, but...you’re too busy, you can’t justify the cost, you don’t fully understand how it works or you just can’t find the time.
At Soul Designs we know that there is no better time. We know that you won’t ever find the time you have to make the time. We know that you are the common denominator in everything you do. We know that by investing in yourself you will feel more energized instantly, have more success with greater ease and increase the quality of your life overall.
(Caution: coaching is contagious ~ the people you care about will also benefit*)
Some people say that coaching with Soul Designs is more fun than they expected while being challenging in a ‘good way’. People are also referring their colleagues, friends and family to sign up for coaching because they want others to have the “Soul Designs Experience”. Huh? Maybe this coaching stuff really works.
You have a lot of choices. You can take more training, read another self-help or leadership book, binge watch more Netflix. Continue doing what you are doing. You can keep looking for answers outside yourself but still...somehow...end up in the same or a similar place. OR...you can make the choice to start on your coaching path with Soul Designs today.
THE FOUNDER, LERAE GIDYK
All my life, I have been deeply empathic and have had a deep interest in people, relationships and this experience we call life. I know that people get up every day and do the very best they can. I know that it is easy to get stuck and stay stuck. I know that sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you still don’t feel like your getting it “right”. Experiencing my own struggle and knowing others might at times struggle in life is what gets me up every day. I have a burning desire to let everyone in the world to know that they are one choice away from all that they desire. Struggle is optional.
Coaching is my way of helping people liberate themselves from the many excuses and patterns they think they are stuck in. I believe we are ultimately responsible for the quality of our lives because our lives are a culmination of the choices we make. That’s really where my coaching has a positive impact. When the brilliant people I work with recognize they have a choice, they make different and better choices - it is that hard and that easy at the same time.
There are two things I enjoy most about coaching. One of those things is of the things is that coaching is so new and I have the opportunity to be a pioneer in the profession having started Soul Designs in 1999 and achieving the Master Certified Coach designation (MCC) in 2006 when there were only twelve MCC’s in Canada. The coaching profession has grown exponentially. The other thing I enjoy most about coaching is the amazing people who I have the privilege of coaching. My clients represent a broad spectrum; leaders who want to increase their influence and develop their leadership skills, people who want something different or have a sense there is something more, as well as coaches who are seeking mentorship. Soul Designs is growing and becoming bigger than just me. I am excited to say that the company now offers individual coaching, online courses and retreats designed to help people lead, live and coach better.
Discovering coaching changed my life. The first coaching class I ever took was on the phone. In that hour, I realized I had found my niche and after twenty-eight years of searching, feeling like I didn’t fit in anywhere, I had found my place and my community. Since then, I have been deeply invested in coaching, and I have never looked back. I believe in the profession and I believe in YOU! I am deeply committed to continue to contribute to the coaching profession and your life as much as possible.
