Show Notes

Welcome to the Art of Value Whispering podcast  

Today I’m joined by the inspiring Kate Trafford, a  Master Coach, author of ‘Get There, Love Here’ and TEDx speaker on the subject of authentic success.
Kate’s entrepreneurial journey began as a response to the challenges of a decade-long corporate career. While on maternity leave, Kate made the bold decision to start her own business, driven by a desire for joy and meaningful impact.

Navigating the demands of early entrepreneurship, Kate discovered a golden thread of joy in recognising and unleashing untapped potential. Starting with soft skills training and team building, her journey evolved into a 24-year celebration, incorporating coaching as a profound spin-off from her initial endeavors.

Join us as Kate shares her insights on exactly how to believe in and achieve your biggest ‘soul goals’, love every step of your bold journey and grow into your most confident and capable self.

“When you think about it, how can your dream be bigger than you, when you're the one holding the dream? It’s not just a dream. It’s possible.”

In this Week's Episode...

In this episode filled with valuable insights, you will discover:

  • The art of mindfully nurturing bravery as a source of strength.
  • The concept of a ‘golden thread’ and mastering the skill of identification.
  • How to picture yourself in a flourishing state at your dream destination.
  • The process of becoming more of your authentic self and bringing that to your work.
  • How to keep imposter syndrome at bay and embrace curiosity for personal evolution.

Book Snippet

This is the book excerpt that I read out on the show. As soon as I read it, I got excited for our interview as I was thinking: “Wow, this is what Value Whispering is all about!”.

Do you wake each morning with a profound sense of purpose, excited to begin your day? Can you see a golden thread of meaning running through everything on your to do list, your meeting schedule, connecting you with what matters most? In short, do you have a dream destination calling you forward, an inspiring goal with a soul?

Life is constantly giving us clues,  but most of us were not trained to look inside ourselves for answers. We were trained to look outside of ourselves for answers. And it is a huge, huge missed opportunity when we do that. - Kate Trafford, ‘Get There, Love Here’

“It's easy to miss your zone of genius. But when you find it, it's a win win. You enjoy your work more and have a more meaningful experience. And your clients benefit from your best, most exquisite work.” Kate Trafford
