Jennifer Nelson was ready for this strategic mentoring session, our third! Prior to this session, Nancy continues to earn her trust and respect as they delve into a deeper conversation. The Self-Awareness Mentoring Journal is a powerful tool Nancy designed for building trust (first created in 1993), and it prepared our podcast guest for another authentic conversation. Jennifer counted on Nancy to handle the session content delicately and offer insightful wisdom. Jennifer was also willing to risk putting herself on the line emotionally to be present for whatever shift within herself might happen during, and after, the taped session.
For a couple of years Jennifer has been almost paralyzed with a creative block. For her, who makes, a living as a graphic designer and a fine artist, a creative block could mean the inability to produce paid work projects. Jennifer has used her art in the past to work through creative blocks but with this one, she needs help. The art from this process will surface at a later date.
Listen in to learn where she is at in the process of working through her creative block. The conversation begins to uncover three areas of trust erosion: boundaries, accountability, and reliability.
Mentoring Tips: Where can you be more present in your life? Challenge yourself to be present, transparent, and authentic in each conversation this week. Transparent means clear like a crystal where you can see right through it. Authentic means being genuine and accurate.
