STEVE BEAUCHAMP // IKIGAI COACH
REGION: SEATTLE, UNITED STATES
My connection to and my passion for the outdoors has strongly influenced my work in such a way I consider finding life harmony something much bigger than myself. I believe nature is a necessary component of finding harmony. Nature has a way of showing you things about yourself when you stop, listen and observe what is happening around you. It also has many healing benefits that most people rarely tap into. In that light, my passion is to work with other continuous improvement professionals to create blueprints and pathways to their success by using the practice of shinrin-yoku (forest bathing or forest therapy) to assist in the discovery of their ikigai.
Nature (lakes, rivers, mountains, seas, meadows, etc.) acts as a series of metaphors that can help us learn about ourselves, how we move through the world and how we can change that movement. One such example is the metaphor of planning a climbing trip and embarking upon that trip as a comparison to how you build and execute a strategy for your business. As you learn about yourself through these types of metaphors, your perspective changes and true growth occurs. For this reason, I believe that nature should be accessible to all.
Over the past 15 years, I have had the privilege of leading teams and leaders through the many facets of strategy development, process improvement and project management. One of the commonalities among those that I have worked with is that they all seek to find some sort of life balance like I have already mentioned. Discovering your ikigai is a critical piece of this balance.
When you learn to find this connection to yourself or business and accept yourself for who you are, you will begin to overcome any obstacle that is present. Discovering my ikigai has been one of the most rewarding and most thought inducing activities that I have done for myself. Since learning how to start living my ikigai through my various life roles, amazing things have started to happen.
Join me on this journey to discover your ikigai.
