They say life is what happens while you make other plans. It isn't easy to stay focused and maintain your own health and energy while navigating personal and professional relationships and fulfilling obligations. This self-coach workbook inspires you to achieve a new level of inner connection and engagement with others. We all have automatic habits, ways of showing up and conducting ourselves in the world. However, we are often not conscious of our own interactive style: how we talk, listen and respond to others. The four Alpha Element Vitality Types provide a new view of yourself and your communication style. By completing the activities in this workbook you can tap into your hidden resources and learn to reconnect with your vitality. Doing this work will provide you with tools and techniques to inspire you to become your own coach and best advocate. You will start thriving in a new way!
Through the Interactive Style Questionnaire (ISQ) included in this workbook you will discover what energy propels you. Vitality is the energy you bring into your interactions with others. We think of vitality as liveliness, vigor, life-giving energy and life force. The Vitality Types illustrate four distinctive types of energy patterns that propel us forward in our communication with others: Catalyst, Torchbearer, Pathfinder and Pragmatist. Learning about the Alpha Element Vitality Types increases self-awareness about key behaviors and how they impact interaction with others.
