“You have to commit to the turn!”
My ski instructor stood beside me, encouraging me to move forward. But I couldn’t. I was frozen. Was it the fear of getting hurt? Or the limiting beliefs that I had bad knees and that I was just not the athletic type?
My experience on the Colorado slopes solidified a key component of professional growth and development, something I’m always considering as an executive coach: in order to realize your career dreams, you must be fully committed to the goal. You need to do the hard work of “committing to the turn” before you even step into the arena of growth.
