discover your NEXT best step

WHEN LIFE THROWS YOU A CHALLENGE DO YOU ... 

  • argue with reality and go into denial?  

  • panic, freeze and do nothing? 

  • blame other people (or yourself)?  

  • regret the past? 

  • rely on distractions to take you out of the situation? 

How would it be to feel curious, courageous and excited about showing up to whatever comes next?

EVERYONE HAS THE INNER RESOURCES FOR THEIR NEXT BRAVE STEP. LET US SUPPORT YOU TO FIND YOURS!  

 

ABOUT

NEXTSTEP is a unique coaching and training company.  

We use deep listening, reflection and inquiry to create a safe space for our clients to pause, take a breath and notice what is really happening in them right now. From this more peaceful place they can discover their own next steps.

The NEXTSTEP approach encourages clients to be vulnerable enough to access the courage and curiosity they need to be fully present, face reality, embrace all their experience without judgement, and make the most of their opportunities. Challenges make it more difficult for us to be present, yet it is only when we are truly in the moment that we can act effectively.

AT NEXTSTEP WE WORK WITH:

INDIVIDUALS

facing a challenge or issue in their personal or career lives or who simply want to dive deeper into their own personal exploration

GROUPS

of staff or participants embarking on or finishing up a working/ learning experience.

ORGANISATIONS

and work teams coping with transition, restructuring and possible retrenchment.

I think it was so valuable. It firstly gave our team a chance to connect, but it also gave us a chance to reflect on ourselves and the language we use with one another.  I’m hoping it will help to transform the conversation in the office and also in our homes and our heads too. Big thanks Mbuyi and Lisa!

Lisa and Mbuyi facilitated an interesting workshop in non-violent communication. Different types of mediums and exercises were used during which we could apply some of the principles to our own lives. They created a warm, safe atmosphere and were sensitive to various individual's situations. They were also open to hearing other's ideas and opinions. A very capable team and workshop. Highly recommended.
