Are you a Zen High Achiever?

Are you a Zen High Achiever?

I confess …

When I chose Zen High Achiever as my coaching business name, I assumed it was self-explanatory! Maybe because (pretentiously) I like to think of myself as one…

However, recently I realized that many people had no clue of what I meant by that, or even worse, some had a strange mental picture of what a Zen High Achiever is, such as …. “a Monk winning a marathon”!

Also, during recent market research I conducted on LinkedIn, a bunch of people asked me “What actually is a Zen High Achiever?” hence this short article to clarify the confusion.

As the name suggests, Zen High Achievers are highly driven and ambitious professionals with outstanding EQ and Human skills.

… They add incredible value to their roles and find their work meaningful, purposeful and rewarding.

… They have nailed work-life harmony.

… Occasionally, they do experience an “imbalanced state” but when that happens they are aware of it. More importantly they have the tools to re-establish balance within imbalance, in no time.

… They might work longer hours when approaching a critical deadline, but those scenarios are an exception, not a rule. They value sustainable high performance and are skillful in establishing healthy boundaries with their leaders and peers.

… They enjoy a surplus of energy and time to do things they love and spend time with whom they wish.

… They don’t rely on coffee and wine to be switched on at work or to sleep soundly.
