This question unlocked it for him

This question unlocked it for him

My client was stuck.

He could not figure out his life purpose. He has done the homework but was still in the fog about it.

Then, I asked him a simple question that unlocked it for him. Ten minutes later, he was clear about the main theme of his life purpose.

Do you wonder how to figure out your life purpose, Isabelle? or how to infuse more purpose into your work?

If so, this question will definitely help!

Check out this video where I reveal the two questions I asked my client that helped him nail down his purpose.

Multicultural background? This is for YOU

** For you or someone you know ** 

Do you have a multicultural background?
Are you first or second-generation immigrant or expat?

Do you want to find a meaningful career that makes a difference….or infuse more meaning and purpose in your current career?

If so, this interview is for you. (Even if you don’t have a multicultural background, you’ll benefit from it.)

I had the privilege to be a guest on this globally top-ranking podcast to chat about one of my favorite topics!

“Finding a Meaningful Career as a Multicultural Leader”

In this interview, I share:

  • How the conditioning of my native culture influenced my career path and how it probably did for you too.
  • How to free yourself from your cultural conditioning, and preconceived notions of success, to create your own meaningful career path.
  • A powerful visualization to help you discover your purposeful work. I did it live with Tayo, the host!

Listen to the interview on Apple Podcasts or YouTube.

Happy listening!

my interview is LIVE… and I don’t hold back!

my interview is LIVE… and I don’t hold back!

A few weeks ago, I was interviewed for RTL podcasts, a top French-speaking radio podcast.

The interview is now LIVE on RTL Podcasts and Spotify.

In this interview (in French), I don’t hold back…

I share personal stories about self-limiting patterns that used to hinder my success in relationships, life, and work.

I reveal how the Enneagram has helped me significantly transform these self-limiting patterns and beliefs and transform my relationships, my confidence, my career, and my business.

When used well, the Enneagram is one of the most powerful and precise tools of personal and professional transformation I know. In combination with coaching and other modalities such as shadow and part work, the Enneagram will help you:

  • Identify and move past your main self-limiting patterns in the way of actualizing your career goals.
  • Improve your personal and professional relationships.
  • Increase your self-esteem and confidence.
  • And much more.

This is why I often use it with my clients to help them move past their self-limiting patterns stopping them from reaching their career and life goals.

I’m back writing to you after a few months break… 

I’ll give you more updates soon–including why I’ve been silent–as well as inspirations and tips on your path to finding and living your career calling

In the meantime, I want to share a celebration. 

Yesterday, for the first time, I had the honor of speaking on a French Enneagram panel virtually hosted in France by Cecile-Flora Lefevre. The Enneagram is a powerful transformation system that I use with my clients. On the panel, I shared–in French–my personal journey of transformation using the Enneagram.

I have spoken on countless English-speaking and/or American-based Enneagram panels led by internationally known experts–including Beatrice Chestnut, Uranio Paes, Ben Saltzman to name a few– but it was my first time sharing in French with fellow French and French-speaking Enneagram practitioners.

SO GOOD!

Bridging cultures and languages is part of my mission. It’s why I love supporting clients from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and countries. 

What are you celebrating?

Comment below and let me know. I’d love to cheer you on. 

Big or small, shared celebrations help you increase your well-being and become more magnetic to good in your life. It’s why this is the first thing I have my private clients do in our 1:1 sessions.

How kind are you being to yourself?

How kind are you being to yourself?

How kind are you being to yourself?

Really.


As I mentioned in my previous post, I spent eight weeks traveling in France and Mexico this summer, for a combo of vacation and remote work. It was one of my 2021 intentions coming true and I loved it.

What I have not told you is that It took me two full weeks to readjust to my life in California after all this time away. During those two weeks, I had not much desire to do any work stuff except my clients’ calls. 

I noticed last Saturday how hard I was on myself because there was business stuff that I had not done yet or important emails I had not followed upon.

Then, I realized how during those past two weeks, I was just not in an emotional and mental space to focus on my business as much. It is not that I was “lazy” or “unproductive” (as my inner critic wanted me to believe), it is simply that my system—emotional, mental, and physical—needed time to reset and reintegrate into my life here, after such a deep connected experience in my native land. I needed integration time. I’ve noticed over the years that the longer and deeper the experience is, whether travel, retreat, or training, the longer the integration back will need to be. And it is important to honor that. There is no bypassing it. This is a natural process, as natural as the change of seasons or the blossoming of a flower.

Being kind to yourself is giving compassion for that part who needs integration time, instead of judging it. Would you judge a flower for the time it takes to blossom? or the seasons for the process it takes to go from one to the next?

Well, now I feel at peace with exactly where I am at, what I’ve done and what I’ve not done yet. I feel relaxed about it and know that all will be done in its natural timing. My energy and motivation to invest in my life and business in California are back. They just went back naturally when I was ready, without forcing it or trying to make it happen. As things happen in nature. Organically and effortlessly.

  • Are you letting things unfold in their own natural timing or are you forcing things to happen before the timing is right?
  • Are you going with the flow of the river of life while taking the necessary actions you are called to take–this does not mean being passive–, or are you trying to push against the flow of the river in your life?

The second option is exhausting, will make everything hard, and will often not get you where you want to go. Rather the opposite.

Wishing you kindness and compassion towards yourself.

With love,

Isabelle
