The Y&R monthly Lunch & Learn initiative intends to bring inspirational people into the agency to share new insights and present a different perspective on branding, advertising or marketing or offer some general motivation.
For the October session, Y&R employees were treated to a talk by Bronwyn Crawford, a professional Corporate and Personal Transformational Coach, on the subject ‘discovering the secret of Personal Power and creating positive and lasting change in all areas of your life’.
Often confused with the field of psychology, life coaching is used to support individuals while achieving a specific personal or professional goal. “Life coaching isn’t limited to a specific discipline. It draws upon a variety of tools and techniques from other fields such as sociology, psychology, positive adult development and career counseling,” explains Bronwyn.
She shared some thoughts around how to take charge of your reactions and thoughts regardless of life obstacles and other external factors, and she challenged the team to pinpoint what makes them truly happy, professionally and personally.
She also highlighted questions that one needs to explore in order to identify these proverbial ‘happy places’, which includes taking a long and hard look at what you spend your energy or money on and what makes you jump out of bed in the morning.
Y&R would like to thank Bronwyn and wish her a very happy belated birthday – thank you so much for joining us on your day off. Enjoy your well-deserved jellybeans too!
