Q: What do you get when you cross a Googler, a life coach, an organization freak and a tech nerd? A: More templates! And me, of course :)
Thanks to many of you, my Google Docs template empire is off to a great start. Some fun stats on how many people have used each one: Professional Development Strategy (820 people), Life Checklist Template (791), Four-Step Budget Template (616), and the Job Interview One-Sheeter (598). Thanks - and I hope they're working out for you!
New to the Team: Wheel of Life Coaching Exercise Template
Background: The Wheel of Life is a commonly used coaching exercise. It can help you examine each of the areas of your life and determine where you want to focus your attention. Your wheel of life is constantly in motion – it is unlikely that you will always feel like a ten in every area. This template will help you identify areas of your life where you feel disconnected or unhappy, then prompt you to reflect on ways you can work toward greater balance and satisfaction.
Normally clients have to complete the exercise on paper then scan and send to their coach, or do the exercise in a fancy flash page where they don't get to keep their answers. And THAT, my friends, is where this new template comes in.
How it works: The template is pretty straightforward - you'll rate how you feel about each area of your life, then answer questions for areas where you want improvement. The part I'm most excited about is the conditional formatting (nerd alert!): as you fill in values for Column B, the cells will automatically change color so you can quickly assess the general state of each category: red for values 1-4, yellow for 5-7, and green for 8-10.
Final Note: The wheel is more like a square in this template...shh - I won't tell if you don't. :)
