Master the tools to navigate your life

Wayfinding is one of the most fundamental skills ever invented by mankind.  Without wayfinding there would be no intentional way of arriving at your desired destination, you would simply be left to the will of the wind, the current, and the tides.  Accidental achievement would be the best you could hope for, and a more realistic expectation would be constant and aimless drift.  

The definition of Wayfinding is: "the process or activity of ascertaining one's position and planning and following a route".  Neither of those activities is as simple as it seems.  It takes a skilled Wayfinder and some dependable tools to actually navigate to an intentional destination.  

What is a Wayfinder then?  In its most basic sense of the word it is "one who finds a way."  A Wayfinder is a person with the self-awareness and determination to persevere through all manners of weather and obstacles until they achieve their goals.  A Wayfinder is not simply a path follower, but a person who opens up new ways; an innovator, a trailblazer. 

For the last 20 years I have been using my top CliftonStrengths to help individuals and teams "find a way" to reach their goals.  My unique combination of Strengths makes me particularly curious and competent to help individuals and teams of all types and sizes.  (My own top 10 CliftonStrengths are: 1. Strategic   2. Individualization   3. Learner  4. Ideation  5. Arranger. 6. Relator   7. Woo {Winning Others Over}   8. Positivity  9. Connectedness  10. Analytical.

Along my journey I have used my Strengths to acquire tools and skills which are tried and true for helping people who are stuck, burnt-out, frustrated, lost, and hopeless discover a path forward toward the life they were made for.  This task requires questioning old assumptions, dissecting current frustrations, and embracing the wildly individual talents that you can harness to set sail toward a brighter horizon.  Partnering with a coach to help you get your bearings, reorient your sights, and trim your sails for maximum momentum will help you get further, faster in work and life. 

My name is Ryan Haynes, and I want to coach you to be a Wayfinder who can confidently navigate your life, work, and relationships on your own expedition through the seven seas of life.
