Chris Hoff’s Guide for Consultants and Coaches Navigating Radical ChangeOct 05, 2023
Navigating the murky waters of transition can be an arduous voyage. The fear of the unknown often paralyzes us, causing us to retreat into familiar territories. As your host, I bring you a conversation with Dr. Chris Hoff, a man who boldly ventured into the unknown and emerged with a unique blend of business acumen and psychological insight. Chris, a former technology entrepreneur, shares his enlightening journey of metamorphosis - from a midlife crisis that led him to therapy, to eventually harnessing his experiences into a unique consulting practice.
In our engaging conversation, Chris and I delve deep into the concept of 'liminal space.' First coined by Arnold Van Gennep, it is a fascinating term that captures the transitional phase between what was and what is yet to be. Chris sheds light on our collective discomfort with uncertainty and how coaching and consulting can train us to build resilience during such tricky times. His stories are a testament to the power of embracing change and taking risks, even when the outcomes are not guaranteed.
As the conversation unfolds, we discuss practical strategies for navigating these liminal spaces during significant life changes. We touch upon the importance of conflict resolution within organizations, the role of building relationships in initiating genuine transformations, and how Chris uses his mentoring skills to promote successful change efforts. Whether you are in the thick of a career transition or simply contemplating one, our chat with Dr. Chris Hoff is filled with invaluable insights and actionable advice you don't want to miss!
