Creative leaders tackling "first time ever" challenges. This might be strategists, startup founders, artists, writers, designers or even business executives. What they share in common is the doubt, fear and blurred thinking that accompanies the challenge of building new solutions.
Worse of all, they're often without support, alone as the project's "leader."
Quieting the Echoes was written to reveal the process of coaching for creative professionals. It’s written with the belief that every challenge is a once-in-a-lifetime situation that equally requires a unique approach and solution.
While this particular case study was not designed to be prescriptive (but rather descriptive), it does end with a simple framework of questions to consider, if this challenge feels familiar for the reader.
