Life Solutions

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

– George Bernard Shaw

Maybe life hasn’t always turned out the way you planned. You lose your job or are facing decisions about retirement. Your spouse passes unexpectedly. Your children leave home to pursue their own lives. You are faced with unexpected health problems. Perhaps you have forgotten who you are and no longer want to be attached to labels such as boss, wife or mother. You may even envision work in your future, but not 60 hours a week.

You have the ability to choose how you will respond and take the path that will create the life you want to live.

With a variety of options, from workshops to individual and team coaching, Next Act Solutions can help get you on the path and on your way.

It Doesn’t Matter If You Choose the Change or It Chooses You

Individual Coaching

Get Started
Use the Energy Leadership Index Assessment™* (ELI) or Core Values Inventory™** (CVI) to guide your coaching agenda, including a vision for your life’s purpose and core values. These assessments will raise awareness on how the energy behind thinking and feeling drive your actions and propel you forward or hold you back.

One-on-One Coaching Sessions
You will collaborate with your coach to put together a specific plan with goals, accountabilities, support needed and timeframes to ensure that you reach your destination. You have an option for 3 to 6 month engagements with frequent check-ins, access as needed to address issues and options for tools such as SCOPE which can help you get back on track when you encounter the occasional detour.

One-on-One and Group Programs

The Law of Being™*
The Law of Being™* is a personal guidance system that is a combination of coaching and hands on exercises to help you attract and create happiness, health, wisdom, and wealth in your life and in the lives of those with whom you work and live.

Have you ever packed for a trip and realized you had more than you needed?  You often have to give up a few things to get going on your journey.  To live the life, you envision, you have to make new choices to lighten the load and clear the path to savor new beginnings.  Assess the places, activities, people and things that may be holding you back so you can get started or stay the course on your life’s next adventure.
