11 Ways We’ve Honored Our Path in Our 11th Year

We're proud to share that, once again, Capes Coaching is celebrating an anniversary! This month marks eleven years serving creative professionals worldwide, helping our clients align with their truest passions, and bringing dreams to life. We couldn't be more excited with where we are, and where we're going. After all this time helping you with your Paths, we thought we'd celebrate by sharing with you these eleven ways we've honored our own Path this year!

1. We Have Clear Goals that We Set Using Our Own Path process!

This may seem like a no brainer, but think about how many people and organizations you know who don't have clear goals. In December, we sat down as a team and "Pathed out" our own one-year goals, with milestones and action plans along the way, just as we ask of our students and clients. We check in with them regularly to make sure we stay on track.

2. We Established our Three Guiding Principles

These are our core values. We refer to them each time we have to make an important decision to make sure we're still aligned with our primary purpose.

  • Honest Relationships + Compassionate Communications
  • Fierce Scalability with a Growth Oriented Mindset
  • Keep it Simple

3. We Personalized Our Work Space

We've made our little office into a lovely and cherished home. We even have plants.

And they’re still alive!

So far!

4. Our Team is Growing

In keeping with that second guiding principle, we’ve more than doubled our team! We’ve added new coaches, new instructors, and a new director of operations to better serve our ever-expanding client base.

5. We've Expanded Our Reach to Art Schools & Universities

We’re proud to share that Capes Coaching now offers curricula in three universities, in NYC and across the country. This fall, we also plan to introduce a new four-semester curriculum at a prominent NYC University! Stay tuned...

6. Growing in Volume

Focused again on that second guiding principle, we now coach and teach 4x more we did last year at this time.

7. We Took Mark Twain's Advice & Ate a Big Ol' Frog: Curriculum Development

It’s hard work, but it was time. We’ve devoted hundreds of hours to redesigning our flagship Path Course. It’s now two weeks longer, and stronger than ever.

8. We Commit to Rituals that Support the Team

We've been doing tons of research on rituals and habit formation, and we’re loving the newest ritual we’ve implemented in the office! For the past few months we’ve been using a meeting structure called Traction, from EOS Worldwide, and we find that it’s getting us further, faster.

9. We Take Breaks

We teach that time off is as important as time on. As part of our company Path this year, we’ve prioritized individual self care and time off in order to show up fully for the work we do together.

Proof!

10. We Stumble. We Fall. We Get Back Up.

When we’re challenged, we continue to ask ourselves: what’s the learning? How can we do better next time?

11. We Stay Inspired

Our Path is nothing without all of you out there working yours. Whether you’re hitting the big time, still in the trenches, or anywhere in between, we’re inspired by your triumphs and struggles and your continued commitment to your passions. We're so grateful to be on the journey with you.

Here’s to another year of goal-getting and growth for all of us!
