My name is Ken Jenkins. I am a professional coach, author and crisis response strategist. In my career, I have responded to fourteen mass fatality events including the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Events which changed the lives of those impacted and those who responded, including me. I have incorporated the lessons I have learned into my coaching practice and my daily life. I did this selfishly.
Through all of the tragedies I responded to, I have come to realize that crisis response is really no different than everyday life except for one thing. In a crisis response, we are following a well-developed plan. A plan which addresses the needs of all those impacted by the crisis. We prepare and we practice so we are ready to respond when needed. Life doesn’t come with a detailed plan…unless you create one!
After seeing so much tragedy up close, it was time for me to re-examine what my life was about. I discovered I was living without intent. I needed a life purpose, not just a work purpose. Many of us go through the day doing what we always do because we always have done it that way and then wonder at the end of the day, why we are not where we really want to be in our lives.
Have you ever felt that way? Are you living with intent? Do you sometimes feel like you need a plan? Or your current plan is not working? Do you feel like there is more to life than what you are doing now? Or are you are just stuck and would like help moving forward? Do you sometimes feel like you are out of options or backed into a corner? Let’s talk!
