As I talked about last week, job hunting is an emotional rollercoaster. Well, after a slow start this week, I’ve been steadily building toward a training class in Toronto next week.
But it’s only partially about the coach-skills training itself. The other part is that it’s a big opportunity to build some important relationships with a coaching company, and to reconnect with some coaches I worked with in the past but never met in person.
What’s the problem? Well, I’m starting to get a little concerned that maybe my expectations are too high for what’s going to happen. It would be fantastic if this would lead to a big-time job opportunity – I really hope it does – but I can’t expect that. If I do, most likely I’ll be quite disappointed.
So I’m forcing myself to focus on the relationship-building part of this, and the learning. That will definitely happen, and anything above that is icing on the cake.
