showed up to work dressed a little different today. the attire is different from my usual; a new turtle neck and cardigan. the colours of my wardrobe has a high level of consistency; still wearing my typical blacks and greys. though i was feeling a little insecure, i also felt a little more confident at the same time. the long weekly meeting i had with my manager in the morning was kind of important to me because it was i have felt a bit more distant from him since the transition. after our talk about catalytic coaching, i felt like i had a better sense of direction

day 1636 – coached to coach 

playing giant scrabble with the letters from my cnc cut as i prepare for my showtime presentation slides. sitting down with my manager to go through my catalytic coaching, a performance review of the previous year and a forecast of what’s to come and expected of me this year. it was valuable time spent with him as we went off the record behind closed doors. the feedback and voices were quite meaningful and surprising. i left the room having a good sense of my value is within my team, within the company and where i’m heading. in two weeks time it will be me running the review for my team members
