We continue to follow Tracy Whitworth, the Survivorship Care Coordinator for Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Phoenix, as she trains to become a certified professional coach through iPEC’s Coach Training Program.
Tracy, you recently completed your first on-the-ground training weekend – three very full days of learning coaching skills with iPEC. What was your biggest ah-ha moment of the weekend you’d like to share?
For me, it was becoming truly aware. The weekend intensive gave me the opportunity to recognize where my apprehensions, fears and worries stemmed from. Even more exciting was the realization that I have the power to change this and move forward. Does this mean I magically don’t still have fearful, worrying moments? Of course not. They still occur, but I am better equipped to handle these moments through awareness and support I have now built.
What are two ways you feel you will now approach your role differently with what you’ve learned in just this first weekend?
