About G.R. Hambley

Life Coach, something I’d done informally for a very long time. I’ve had the accreditation since July, 2010

Poet – Photographer – Artist – Graphic Designer … EclecticRme

The Chronological List of my postings here at WordPress.

G.R. stands for Gary Ronald and my Grandmother very much liked that I use my initials when I write.

This is the, “I Love Me” page on my micro site where you’ll see a bit of everything.

Why “Transitional” is my favourite area of coaching?

A number of years ago, March 5, 1989 to be exact I suffered a catastrophic event that led to me having to give up my chosen trade.

It was a motor vehicle accident with injuries that made some of the physical aspects of the trade impossible. If you’re wondering if I was at fault, the answer is no. I was hit in the rear end and it caused damage to my spine. If I’m the Coach you choose, I’ll be happy to elaborate as I bring what happened to me to my coaching with you.

Along with the physical rehabilitation help there was occupational and vocational help made available to me. There were many tests to see what I could do and what I had the aptitude for. Then it was up to me to decide what path I wanted to take and how to get there.

You do have to pick your own path.

What wasn’t there and I believe should be available is a coach to help you define your short and long term goals. Someone to help you keep your goals on the path when you bog down

I’m always humane unless you put me in a position where I have to be something else.

    I thought I should bring the conversation to your adobe. I hope I haven’t put you in a position where you have to be anything other than a human being 😉

    Great line: “Sometimes I’m a human being. Sometimes I’m a human doing.” Can’t wait to explore more of your work.

    Good to see the depth beneath the wit. My life got richer. Encountering people on a comments thread is like overhearing them at a cocktail party (not that I do that, ever) – once in a while curiosity is sparked, interest is piqued, similarities are revealed, differences are respected… So my poetry flows differently, my photos are fewer, my art tends to stone and wood, and my design to steels and alloys… and I remain uncrashed, and unaccredited. Still there’s a love of words, and hidden, underlying truths, and an urge to express… and one more thread in the tapestry, one more connection to community, one more affirmation of humanity shared.
    Maybe I’ll get that accreditation soon.

      Thank you. Observation, feeling and experience. Sometimes my own experiences felt and observed.

      I like what you say. Accreditation isn’t as important as affirmation. You’ve received that from the one that matters most, yourself.

    Nice to meet your on WordPress! Interesting life history, G.R. Curious, what was your profession before the accident? Your choice of a new one seems to fit you very well. Many people need help with life choices. Christine

        Thanks for sharing. Heavy work, G.R. Some forced changes are better suited. Using your brain instead of brawn now. Christine

        Well that’s where many people are mistaken, you can’t be stupid and be a good tradesman. Love to see those kinds trying to decipher/read a mechanical blue print. Another thing about tradesmen, they’re smart enough not to mess with what they don’t know which is why I didn’t suggest an “Electrical” print.

        That attitude that it is all brawn and dirty is one of the things that keeps young people from exploring the trades as a profession. That is a real shame cuz I figure people are going to want to continue to be warm, see, breathe, eat and go to the bathroom.

        Thanks G.R. for bringing up an important perspective, not the general worker, but the brains behind the blueprint. Think today many young people are specializing in engineering specialties here in the U.S. Maybe they start out being a worker, and their interest grows. Of course there are some that just want a handout and slump in front of a TV. Times have changed since I started in the workforce. It was hard work at a young age. Christine

        One of the rules for trades people, never let an engineer touch the tools! The instant gratification. There is a physical component that not everyone can manage. Not many want to and that is unfortunate. Constructing things is highly satisfying.
