We all want to bring innovation to the way we solve problems. Because we tend to use the same set of logic in framing or defining solutions, we limit creativity without looking at it in a new way or expanding a whole range of possibilities. If we describe the issue you’re trying to solve in a different way, or look at it from a different angle, new solutions can emerge. Jodi Weitz, life and professional coach discusses methods to get the creative process flowing to effectively unravel problems so that new insights can arise.
We all bring our perceptions and assumptions to our lives based on our past, emotional trauma and survival skills. But this can hinder our ability to move forward and suppress the risks that we’re willing to take. By challenging our preconceptions, we can move through these perceptions and grow personally. By looking at our actions in a number of areas, such as negative self-talk, becoming aware of our preferences, removing the “should’s” and others, we begin to break down limiting thoughts. Jodi Weitz, life and professional coach discusses the ways we can allow ourselves to reframe out thoughts, actions and intentions to open up exciting possibilities in our lives.
Questions offer insights about how your life is flowing. It’s easy to go through our day without a thought about how it could be better or what we need to let go of to bring ease and simplicity to our lives. The beginning and end of the year are potent times to reflect on your life. It’s a time to dig deep and decide whether you’re on track with your life’s goals or whether you need to establish changes to course correct. Even if you are not measuring goals, enriching questions can help you to get at your own personal “state of the union.” Jodi Weitz, life and professional coach, offers a number of questions to help you to find the answers you need to make 2022 your best year ever.
Habits can be positive or negative in our life. Some are useful, but others are counter-productive to our personal and professional growth. Breaking unwanted habits can be difficult, especially if you have been doing them for a long time and not aware of these unconscious actions. Jodi Weitz, life and professional coach discusses the triggers that may be involved in creating habits and how we can break away from these limitations that hold us back in our lives.

Whether you’re in a relationship with friends, work colleagues or in a romantic partnership, listening may be the greatest contribution you can bring to your relationships. Active or deep listening is at the heart of every healthy relationship. It’s also the most effective way to bring about growth and change between the two parties. When people are heard, they tend to be more open, more democratic in their ways, and are often less defensive. The most important aspect of listening carefully is that we’re telling the other person that we care about what they’re saying. The flip side is also true. When we listen to others with openness and without criticism, then chances are they will be more inclined to listen to us in the same way. Listen as Jodi explains how you can boost your relationship skills for deeper, happier connections.
