Lisa J Crawford is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She impressed us with her goodness and positivity.
She has been through a lot in her life, from molestation and rape to blindness in both eyes. But she didn’t let that stop her from becoming the best version of herself.
In fact, she changed her narrative so it actually serves her to be even better person and help even more people.
She found the way to create her own peace and she helps people do the same. Here is what she said.
Meet Life Coach Lisa J Crawford:
Name: Lisa J Crawford
Pillar: The Spirit
Who is this coach for: Anyone who wants to change their narrative and find their real value.
How they can help: Through storytelling, writing and journaling.
First of all, how are you and your family doing in these Pandemic times?
The pandemic taught me what teamwork truly means.
I virtual schooled my 3 grand children and my daughter worked for us.
How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?
Corona virus brought on depression, lonliness and hopelessness for the extroverts.
Assisting in finding ways to break theses feelings were very difficult for some.
The pandemic stopped me from being on the road as a hospitality task force manager.
I am an extrovert but I found my peace in going to the lake, watching birds and sunsets. Being featured on podcast, radio shows.
What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?
Create your own peace.
Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?
I was designed to help people know that they matter and no matter what they face there is hope.
My career started with one on one non paying clients.
During that time, I did not realize I was in a business I thought I was just helping people.
What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?
Let’s roll some off..
Molestation, rape, low self esteem, workplace trauma, depression, blindness in both eyes four years apart, betrayal of a friend.
I am who I am because god has made me an overcomer with peace so that I can help others not feel alone.
The Coaching Style:
How do you innovate with coaching your clients?
Some clients do not take the time to uncover their silent screams and there can’t be growth if there is no release of past pain.
I encourage a true self reflection through journaling for 21 days.
What’s unique about your coaching approach?
I have the gift of storytelling.
I have been through so much in my life so that I can tell the story and give assistance.
What benefits do your clients get after working with you?
I pray that they will understand themselves in such a way that they see their worth, value their skills and love themselves unconditionally.
Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?
Writing and speaking are my tools of coaching.
As long as you have a voice you can change the narrative.
If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?
What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?
“No” is a complete sentence and needs no explination.
Your final thoughts?
Be intentional about being happy, peaceful and gentle with yourself.
