Change can be painful if you don't have a toolbox to use. Do you have a Plan B? We talk to Shannah Kennedy about her new book, Plan B and how you can build a Plan B on our forthcoming new series of In The Spirit of Things.
Shannah Kennedy was a type-A, overachieving perfectionist when she experienced burnout at the age of 30. In Plan B she shares her journey for people feeling hopeless in the face of change, and explains how you can turn a change in circumstance into your second act – a Plan B.
Shannah’s wake-up call came when she was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and depression. She’d been a high-powered sports executive but suddenly, one morning, her body and mind broke.
Over the following year she became a Life Coach and built a new life that was sustainable and healthy.
Since then she’s spent 20 years building a Plan B for clients from CEOs to elite athletes facing their next steps.
If you’re asking ‘Who am I without my job?’, or ‘How will I ever recover?’, Plan B offers solutions.
In Plan B, Shannah explores:
• The 4 stages in facing a change in life, from shock and grief, to healing, resetting and shining once again
• Why the process of change is critical to be able to lean into in order to find happiness once again
• Unlocking your thoughts, feelings and emotions with a series of journalling activities
• Learning the power of values, habit stacking, vision, goals, self-care for mental health and wellbeing, and loving who you areChange
‘Change can turn our plans, our lives and our dreams upside down. Whether you have faced a redundancy, had a relationship breakdown, lost a loved one, been in an accident, had a health scare, or been impacted by an economic downturn, your ability to accept, adapt, pivot and build a new plan will be the key to your future happiness.
