I Offer Mentorship and Coaching for African American professionals who want to move up or move on without fear and anxiety.
Why Do You Resist Change?
Are you holding on to something that was never meant to be in the first place? Are you so determined to be right - and prove somebody wrong - that you're "cutting off your nose just to spite your face"? Are you so afraid of what might happen that you're keeping yourself trapped on a dead end path? Are you blaming other people, the system or your past for your inability to be the best version of yourself? Most importantly, are you ready to move up and move on? Let me show you how!
Live the Medicine
I don't believe in magic bullets or get-rich-quick schemes. I believe in hard work, adding value and serving others; that's what my programs are designed to help you do. When I hear claims that isolated rituals or products will magically reveal your destiny and make you immune to the challenges of every day life, I shake my head in disbelief. My work is based upon a 3-fold approach to realizing personal greatness: Self Discovery, Daily Practice and Sacred Service. Learn More...
Security vs. Growth
What is MOST important to you? Do you need security or do you need growth? On one hand, security is essential. You cannot grow if you're constantly struggling for food, clothes and shelter. Unfortunately, however, no matter how hard you try to control things, life will always throw you an unexpected change.
On the other hand, if you are constantly changing things, your life will lack the basic consistency necessary to create sustainable growth. Progress requires order and stability.
My role is to help coach you on how to strike a healthy balance between security and growth.
Only one thing stands between you and your happiness: change!
Change shouldn't be this hard!
We love to have options, but we dread changes. The problem is most people don't know what to do to move up or move on and CREATE the life they always wanted.
When the Student is Ready...
All of us are where we are today, in large part, because somebody saw something in us that we could not see in ourselves.
The Yoruba say, "No matter how sharp it is, the knife cannot carve its own handle." In fact, the sharper the knife is, the more expertise and precision are necessary to use it properly.
The more talented you are, the more important it is that you accept qualified coaching and mentorship. You will never hear of an Olympian who has no coach.
What you did yesterday won't bring you success today. Life will continue to repeat "the challenges" until you are willing to do what is truly necessary to learn the lesson.
We're having an identity crisis because we don't practice our culture.
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
It doesn't matter what you thought was going happen. What matters is how your work survives contact with the real world and how quickly your team learns and adapts to that new information.
I'm OBAFEMI ORIGUNWA. I know what it's like to feel totally overwhelmed by changes. When it seemed like I was never going to break the cycle of chaos, I thought, THERE MUST BE A BETTER WAY!
I'm not a natural at managing change and I'll bet you aren't either. Change doesn't come naturally to most people but it can become second nature. The key to feeling comfortable with change is confidence. With the right amount of skills, knowledge, and practice you will feel much more confident in your ability to master changes.
