About Courage Space

Who I Am And How I Work With You

I work with individuals and teams who are either amidst change or would like to experience change. 

These clients believe that they could be operating at a higher potential, that they could be more fulfilled, that their relationships could be better and their organizations could have a more positive, collaborative and values based work culture.

And they are courageous enough to personally grow through the process of their change.

The Courage Space

If I could say there’s one thing that determines success, it would be courage.

Whether it’s success in your personal or professional life or in your business, one thing for certain, is that you need to have courage to move past your fears, to go beyond what you know and to deal with the uncertainty of change that exists all around us. For an individual, this means facing your fears and self doubt, embracing the change you’re in and daring to reach your full potential. For a leader or an organization, this means being open to change and doing whatever it takes in order to create a culture of trust, accountability and comittment which is critical to having a sustainable competitive advantage.

When you stand from a place of courage and create a space to lean in, to take risks, to put yourself out there, to open up yourself and your organization to feedback and growth, to have difficult but necessary conversations and to do what’s necessary to move forward, this is what I call the Courage Space

When I work with my clients, I create a space, the Courage Space, for them to do, be, think, feel and say exactly what they need to in order to overcome their obstacles and tap into their creativity, innovation and resources. It’s here where I also challenge my clients to see past their own limitations, to break down the walls holding them back and create possibilities they never knew were possible. Through coaching, tools and concepts, my clients learn to find their own Courage Space and live from there so they can continue to reach their full potential and experience the success and fulfilment they’re looking for.

I'm Your Partner and Guide In Change

My Coaching Methodology

Dagmar Meachem, CPC, ACC

 

I believe that obstacles can be an opportunity for growth and transformation and courage can be a catalyst for change. And I’m passionate about working with individuals, leaders and teams in change, helping them move forward when they feel stuck and getting them past the obstacles holding them back from being their best. As a coach, I thrive in coming alongside individuals through their growth and development, so they can live more fulfilled and purpose led lives and contribute in a positive and effective way to their lives and the organizations they serve.  And my differentiating quality is courage and how I create a space for my clients to lean into the discomfort and have courageous conversations. 

My coaching methodology, on a high level, is about helping to create more courageous individuals, leaders and teams.

My coaching methodology on a more specific level is about partnering with individuals in an in-depth process of discovery and change, that’s designed to facilitate the creation and development of personal, professional and organizational goals and develop and carry out a strategy and plan for achieving those goals. This process also helps them discover their true potential and purpose and learn to live authentically and consistently inside that every day. And the gift of coaching and personal development that they are left with is that they learn that they actually have the resources and capabilities to solve their own problems, they just needed help discovering that within themselves.

My strength with those I work with is that I won’t shy away from the discomfort that comes with change and the challenges they are facing. In fact, I will help them move toward it, embrace it and use it as an opportunity for growth and positive change. I am the catalyst in helping individuals, leaders and organizations make the change they’re wanting to make.

My Approach

In order for my clients to experience success, the key is to start with a development plan that is measurable, attainable and tailored specifically to the desired outcomes of the client and the organization they serve. When clients can clearly see the outcome they want, they are more likely to do what it takes to achieve it. And so, throughout our coaching engagement, the coaching outcomes are always held as a guide and reference point.

I work in partnership with my clients and we co-create solutions and opportunities together. And when I consider and help them assess the obstacles and challenges they face, I have a systems approach, where I inquire beyond the individual into relationships, teams and the organization they serve to provide more information and perspective. The goal I have for my clients is to leave them better off than when I found them and provide sustainable growth and learning that continues after working with me.

My Process

When I work with clients, the first step is to create a clearly defined development plan with measurable outcomes that are aligned with the individual and the organization they serve and are attainable during the duration of the coaching engagement.

During the coaching engagement, I partner with my clients through a process of discovery as we take a deeper look at values, beliefs, motivations, drivers and what impact clients would like to make through their work and life. We explore what might be holding them back or getting in the way, through identifying blind spots and unconscious and limiting beliefs. We set a commitment and work through an actionable strategy and plan for achieving their goals, personal shifts and changes.

What I bring to the coaching process that allows for individuals to grow and make sustained positive shifts is my compassion, empathy and shared vulnerability in our conversations. I create a safe and confidential space for people to explore their thoughts, feelings, fears and doubts where there’s no judgement or consequence. And this alone creates opportunity for conversations and emotional freedom that clients never thought were possible. The space I provide for my clients gives them hope, inspiration and knowledge that possibilities are all within their grasp.
