APRÈS

Après Sessions embrace embodied and progressive practices. Holistic Health. Train Your Brain. Find Your Freedom.

 

What’s next?  SESSION IT

 

Our holistic approach to optimal health and performance empowers you to discover your true potential.

 

Everything we do is about finding your freedom.

 

Why “Après”? Because “after” coaching, you will find your line.   

 

Inspired by riding mountains and surfing oceans, Après Coaching Sessions are a nod to the discipline and diligence necessary to master these epic environments, the freedom found in doing so, and the reward of post-excursion celebrations known as après-ski. Après Sessions, on and off the mountain, are holistic meaning an integrated whole experience.

 

Holistic health coaching considers the whole human system to spearhead what we find in the state of “flow” resulting in optimal performance and wellness in all realms of life.

START UP & CLIMB FOR LIFE /// Alex McAfee

 

Everyone wants to be a start up business these days. Understandable.  Especially if you run in our circles of freedom fighters.

But have you ever been a part of any start-up team? Especially within a more progressive business model? Have you put in the hours? Have you honed optimal performance in any one area of life? Have you become really really clear on who you are, what your purpose is, where you are now, and where you want to be?  

Navigating start-up business can be heaven and hell all at once - much like rock climbing.

Learning to maintain your center, breathe, honing a key skill such as full-blown grit, as well as soft skills that allow you long term vision, creativity, and of equal importance, vulnerability, which is quite key in finding support and community - all are essential. This will not happen overnight. Experience is everything.  And simultaneously, do you have, at your fingertips, a second set of eyes and a neutral ear to listen, support and guide you? Even if you do, family and friends, business advisors, and mentors can be awesome, but the necessary neutrality along with the skills to truly take you from peak performance to peak-to-peak performance are key. A start-up coach provides!

We decided to bring Alex McAfee into the Aprés Coaching collective as start-up coach and consultant given his vast climbing experience which refined the initial skill sets necessary to become a successful entrepreneur himself before becoming a truly independent start-up coach, consultant and advisor. Not to mention our soft spot for his commitment to supporting those with our same “make good happen” credo in place. His start-up experience within wellness, yoga, fashion and technology is truly a progressive mix where we at Aprés believe we are all headed. Here’s to future… we, too, have Alex to thank!

Outside of coaching, Alex is also CEO & Founder of Conrad Men’s, a super hot custom leather bag line for men which includes meditation cushions – we love. He is also Founder of SeekRetreat, an online yoga retreat booking destination.

SOFT SKILLS

 

While we are in full support of men and women equally, a lot of attention is being brought to the roles of women in business given the recent U.S. presidential election.

The majority of people who work in holistic coaching, wellness, personal development, health care, and related realms happen to be women.  Women striving - we can only assume by their chosen professions - to make the world a better place. 

The world truly needs, now more than ever, the “soft skills” both women and men have to offer.  Much like any athlete, practicing is the only way to improve and expand upon those skills.

”Knowledge, education and experience – whether in the mountains or in business – are crucial, but so is developing soft skills." -John Winsor, CEO at Speakeasy Guild

The soft skills according to John Winsor include:

Vision

Anticipation

Commitment

Flow

Grit

Partners

A few more to consider…

Communication

Self-awareness

Teamwork

Collaboration

Adaptability

And, the ability to show vs. tell.

So while we are still in winter mode, NOW is great time to reassess your goals as well as your skills, especially your soft skills.  Do so before spring blooms, rolling right into summer... a sea of outdoor events, kids out of school, and enjoying the sunshine... so that you can perform at your best throughout this year.

How can you cultivate further self-awareness in order to continually reassess and improve upon your skill sets?

What are your goals?

And how can you meet them while keeping your health and sanity in check AND while continuing to make a difference? 

Man or woman, we are all connected, and a second set of eyes on your future will take you from where you are now to where you want to be.

DIVE DEEP

 
 

We’re into diving into the depths of life because that's where the magic happens.  You can refuse to step into your truth, refuse to face your fears, and take a seemingly safe, logical and predictable path, but let’s be honest… it won’t be very much fun.  Why?  Because everywhere you go, both your fears and your unmet dreams are walking right beside you.  The unacknowledged truths of your inner world will wreak havoc on your life by attracting the same unmet desires in other people, other jobs, other places, ultimately sending you into one tailspin after another.  Do you want to lose hours, weeks, years of your life to all that?  Ultimately, the choice and the responsibility is always yours. Come après with us and ride into your most desired direction. See you on the flip side!
