Burnt out? Try the Mentorship Cure.
By Karena Thek, author of Scolio-Pilates®
- Recognize whether you are ready to take it to the next level. Are you burnt out and never want to teach Pilates again or do you just desperately need a challenge? If it’s the latter, see #2.
- Find a passion. Is there a type of client that you love seeing? Because it’s rewarding, stimulating and challenging? Define your passion.
- Start your own investigation into the subject that you find stimulating. Find out how the work you know so well can help this client improve. Let the questions come up and let your curiosity be piqued.
- Find a Mentor/teacher who offers a Mentorship or a workshop who is willing to work side-by-side with you to help you answer the questions you arrive with and help you discover new and exciting questions to ask next.
