Why I Emphasize Personal Accountability and Responsibility in My Approach to Coaching

If you work hard on your job, you can make a living. If you work hard on yourself, you can make a fortune.” —Jim Rohn

Living On-PAR (Personal Accountability and Responsibility) is one of three prongs forming the foundation of my coaching approach at SOAR Coaching Academy. The other two prongs are Appreciative Coaching and Strength-based Coaching.

I developed the SOAR On-PAR Toolkit, 6 Keys to Nurture, Grow and Empower Your Life, as a first step on the journey to lifelong growth and personal development. The toolkit is a means to examine six keys for asking specific, introspective questions to determine how you manage your gift of life.

“6 Keys” Podcast

Have you heard my podcast on 6 Keys to Nurture, Grow and Empower Your Life?

I created the toolkit as a means of becoming the person you aspire to be by examining the person that you are. The toolkit is built on a foundation of personal accountability and responsibility.

The first three tool reflect you inner life. You inner life is the seat of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. The second three tools reflect your interpersonal life – your words, actions and behaviors. This is the “you” that gets projected into your relationships and the world.

Introduction to the SOAR On-PAR Toolkit
Welcome to the SOAR On-PAR Toolkit series introducing 6 Keys to Nurture, Grow and Empower Your Life. I’m your Change Cultivator and Im excited about helping you to cultivate change through daily growth and persona development.

Key #1 Know Yourself
Guides you through specific questions related to self-image, character, and influence.

Key #2 Nurture Your Life
Begins by challenging you to test your life choices to see if you live to survive or live to thrive.

Key #3 Integrate Your Life
Rather than looking at your life domains (e.g., spiritual, personal, relational, work and financial) as separate entities competing for time, energy, and money, consider a different approach where your life domains are connected, complementing one another as part of an integrated whole.​

Key #4 Connect with Others
Connection is about others and it goes way beyond words.
“Connecting is the ability to identify with people and relate to them in a way that increases your influence with them.” John C Maxwell

Key #5 Live Intentionally
Do you know what it means to walk a mile in another person’s shoes? Try it sometimes and see how it connects to your definition of significance.​ Part of living intentionally means acknowledging that everyone wants their life to matter. 

Key #6 Seize Opportunity
Stop and think about what your life would look like if you went into each day expecting to find opportunities. If you went into each day with an abundance mindset instead of a scarcity mindset.​

Putting It All Together
Take the first step to putting it all together with a Complimentary 30 Minute Coaching Session. Then commit to three critical actions to continuously improve your life, making each day better than the last.
