Canary Green Meets Adam Kawalec, The Life and Business Coach With An Eye For Sustainability
At our Canary Green Team Building Event, we were lucky to meet volunteers from all around the world. From the ancient valleys of Peru to the vast open plains of South Africa, our volunteers have travelled from far and wide to help promote sustainable tourism in the Canary Islands. Each volunteer brings their own life experiences to the project and some of us even have our own businesses. Balancing a hectic schedule, cultural differences, a business and volunteering can prove tricky at times. To keep the green team in top form, we enlisted the help of Adam Kawalec, a highly recommended life and business coach who is living and working in Tenerife. If there is anyone who can help us feel unstuck, motivated and fired up, it’s Adam. What’s more, Adam is a big supporter of our Meat Free Monday campaign and incorporates sustainable practices into his day-to-day life. It is a match made in heaven.
What is a Life and Business Coach?
Simply put, a life coach is someone who works closely with an individual to help them define a clear vision for their life and help them overcome moments of stress, anxiety or uncertainty. A business coach focuses on taking an outside-in view of a business and works to build effective strategies and workflows to help that business grow. When searching for a coach, it is important to find the best fit for you. Since we are all different and want different things in life, there is no cookie-cutter approach to coaching. The best thing to do would be to look for a life and business coach that offers a free consultation and try a couple before selecting the person for the task. It is a truly personal experience and you must feel comfortable talking to your coach.
English Language Coaching in Tenerife
The team gathered at Hotel Suites Villa Maria in Adeje which proved to be the ideal setting for this coaching business event. Since English is the official language of Canary Green, we wanted a life and business coach that spoke our language, not just verbally but also in terms of our mission. And my goodness did Adam deliver! His actor training and years of experience as a top-level manager for one of Sweden’s largest retailers allows him to immediately connect and bewitch the audience. He had us hanging off every word as he described his beginnings as a certified life coach, shared with us his inspiration and then encouraged us to also take part. The presentation opened up into a group discussion with each volunteer sharing stories and anecdotes. Adam’s ability to create a safe space where people are allowed to feel vulnerable allowed for honest and supportive conversations to take place.
Key Takeaways from Our Day With A Personal Life Coach
It didn’t matter at which stage of the entrepreneur journey we were on – Adam was armed with helpful tips and constructive criticism nevertheless. His experience as an entrepreneur coach combined with his knowledge and interest in sustainability proved to be invaluable assets to the day’s discussion. While many of us have never worked with business coaches for entrepreneurs, Adam has definitely opened our eyes to the benefits. Some of the key things that we learnt from the workshop were:
- Happiness. An essential ingredient for a fulfilled life. But how many of us are truly happy?
- The hero’s journey. A concept that makes your customer a hero, the main character of your brand story. Focussing on the customer before they convert to be a customer will allow you to address their needs and provide value to their lives.
- How do we approach problems? We cannot tackle a problem on the same level that that problem was created. How can we become more dynamic and resilient to negativity?
- All the volunteers were struggling with more or less the same issues. This brought us closer and created a renewed sense of support. The result? A more united team that supports one another.
Are You Tempted to Try A Personal Development Coach?
If the answer is yes, we can safely say that Adam Kawalec is one of the best life coaches that we have discovered. Not only is he a brilliant life mentor he is also a highly-skilled businessman. In just four hours he was able to change the team’s mood from feeling stuck and unmotivated into feeling dynamic, energised and revitalised, ready to achieve our newly found goals. If you are looking to bring about positive change in your life then be sure to hop onto a free life and business coach call with Adam. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
