Life is one long series of never ending transitions. Moving from one job to another, from one boss to another, from one love to another, from one sport to another, from one age to another. Transitions are life.
Nature, and therefore you, never move in straight lines. You must already know this about life. Your month is never a smooth end to end experience. There are waves of happiness, sadness, ups and downs, ins and outs, confidence and insecurity, peace and disruption. You know this. But how well do you manage those transitions and fluctuations?
Arguments, depressions, confusions, uncertainties, reveal a poorly managed transition, nothing more. Most, if not all of your problems would go away if you did nothing.
Poor health is also a sign of badly managed transitions. So, it would be appropriate for you, your children and your sports club to engage in education around the topic of transition, and become good at it. Certainly it would save you a massive amount of time and energy.
I coach people through transition. It is my life work. I believe that at an executive level of leadership, transitions are a tsunami, a literal minute by minute consequence of responsibility. Hence, the better you are at transition, the more of them you’ll have, and the better you are at them, the more of them you’ll have. Getting help, support and being coached through continual transition is certainly no shame. In fact, anyone who has achieved any level of performance in their job, work, family, sport or leadership deserves that support.
As an outline of what I do in transition management I’ve created the Walker Transition Model. It works to address the various facets of transition. I’ll explain:
Create a MAPPED IMAGE of exactly where you are. This demands honesty and insight.
THE PRESENT EGO
THE PRESENT REASON
Find CAUSE of what created the past, present and future you’ve MAPPED.
FAST, CONSCIOUS, SUSTAINABLE TRANSITION
Let Go the Past with Love
Reboot your physical systems
Evolve your environmental influencers
Re-evaluation authentic actions – Change Behaviour – New Habits
New Mapped Reason – 7 Visions, 7 inspirations and 7 Purpose
Love Life – Restore beauty into everyday life…
Take an honest snap shot of where you have: been, are and going.
Find what needs to change in order not to repeat the past or go back to old habits
Build a solid and beautiful life in all aspects of sustainable happiness and fulfillment.
Learn from this an be more proactive in transition in the future.
Pain isn’t essential
Pain is not an essential part of living. However, when we do fall asleep at the wheel of life, it becomes the only way we grow and learn. A coach’s role in your life is to predict and prevent pain that comes through experiences that could have been learnt without the cost. Burning $10 teaches you that $10 burns, however, there’s really no need to burn money to find it out. A coach must, through their own footsteps be able to prove that $10 burns for the small cost of $1. – or $2.
If you’re an executive, want elite pain prevention, want to evolve and stay one step ahead of your own transition management, at home, in health or at work, then elite executive coaching is exactly suited for you.
TOPIC 4. TRANSITIONS ARE NOTORIOUSLY CHALLENGING BOTH PERSONALLY AND AS A LEADER.. BACK ON TRACK IS A TRANSITION MANAGEMENT PROCESS TAUGHT EXCLUSIVELY TO EXECUTIVES AND SUITABLE FOR MANAGING SELF, OTHERS OR TEAMS FACING RADICAL CHANGE.
USING THE BACK ON TRACK™ TRANSITION MANAGEMENT PROCESS
I believe that people block transitions, get off track, lose their sense of purpose, feel unfulfilled or depressed because their life is somehow out of flow between the past and the future.
There are seven key steps to healthy transition management. We call this the BACK ON TRACK steps and in this program you and your team learn the skills of applying these steps to any situation requiring radical and immediate transition:
Discard: Emotional Clearing and Balancing (clear up emotional disturbances)
Cellular: Physical Health and wellness – (changing the body metrix)
Environment: Change Appearances – (Upgrade environment to reflect new perspectives)
Mind IP: Reconfirm Mind Values (Where to focus ongoing self development)
Vision: New Vision and Purpose (Create new incentives, direction and clarity for the future)
Psyche: Personal Presence (shake off the old self talk bring in the new)
Results: Action – (Embed new daily action, process for being back on track)
ARE YOU IN A TRANSITION PHASE
Follow the check list below. if you score a total of less than 35 you are definitely in transition and would be wise to integrate the BACK ON TRACK PROCESS. A score of 60 or more also signifies transition stagnation and would be wise to implement change ASAP.
If I asked you to score yourself on a 1 – 10 against each of the 7 elements (where 10 is blissfully happy and content and 1 is suicidally depressed) how would this look?
So your ‘VIP’ score would be the total of the seven scores. What is it? Interesting. Are you happy with that?
The normal reaction for people in a funk (low scores below 5 in any area of life) is to focus solely on one or two of these areas of life. For example, if you are down in career, you might turn to a coach. Down in health, you might end up at a gym or personal trainer. Mentally down you might start meditating, and so on.
The problem with this is that as one aspect grows, another shrinks. You’re unfulfilled at work so you decide to drive harder but as a result, your family and love-life suffers. Or if your finances are struggling you might start worrying about money and ignore your health. Your overall score of [VIP score] doesn’t change, it simply changes shape. Old problems may go away, new ones appear.
Have you seen this happen to anyone you know?
Back on track has two basic goals;
Firstly, to achieve balance across all the elements and
Second, to increase your overall ‘VIP’ score
I apply my approach to teams and for individuals in change management
Depression, divorce, financial breakdown, emotional trauma, mental health problems and illness are all long term consequences of being off track for too long.
Back on Track™ is both a preventative and a maintenance program. It can be in the form of a 2-day workshop for corporate teams or private coaching or an intensive 30-day programme, ……………..
The unique feature of Back on track is that you not only get back on track in a sustainable healthy way but you learn a process for catching funk early for the future.. it means you can regulate your life balance and not be caught with your pants down in the future.
What do you think? Does it resonate with you? Do you know anyone who you think might benefit from this?

Introduction to Coaching with Back on Track and Tailor-made solutions for a fuller, more rewarding and enjoyable life.
Back On Track™ is 12 hours of problem solving focus, tailor-made solutions for a fuller, more rewarding and enjoyable life.
Why 12 hours of Coaching – Can I do It in More or Less?
Yes, for sure. Do it in 14 days if you like. You can even take a year if needed. Life and work is changing so quickly if you’re off track, you’ll be twice as off track in a month. Procrastination just makes the old patterns of causation more rigid. You’ll want to get in, rock your boat, implement new thinking, kick out the stress, set new strategies, communicate your changes and get on with it before the next wave of frustrations arrives. We used to run this program over a 3 day retreat but now we want to be right with you on the implementation of change so, 3 days became 30 days, fully supported.
Is it a packaged program like E-Learning or is it interactive directly with me?
Over 14 hours of interacting in 30 days gives you the chance to solve specific problems, implement changes, get tailor made solutions and explore them in the real world.
What’s “Living Alive Naturally” got to do with my performance at work and private life?
Your true human nature, unencumbered with ego and fear and hurt and stress and worry and anxiety, becomes your most powerful self, this is living alive naturally, knowing what’s real, what’s false and what to believe, your ground zero for life. This is real, no bull, no mumbo jumbo, no hocus-pocus, no guru’s, version of you. Not wanting to be someone else, simply using your true nature and negotiating your outcomes at the level of causation.
If you keep doing what you are doing will you achieve the outcomes of life you want?
Your true nature is fingerprint unique. Your background, history, memories, ambitions, hopes, dreams, experience, education makes you a powerhouse of possibilities but only if you tap that uniqueness in a way that creates the results you want. In 30 days, you’ll align how you do what you do with what you want to achieve in life. This is the natural harmony that comes from being authentic.
How will you measure your life long term?
When you are off track typically you’re out of balance somewhere. That doesn’t feel good and automatically creates a nervous tension that isn’t resolved by the usual things. In the 30 Day Back on Track™ you ask “what do I want the outcomes of my life to be and how do I go about getting them?” You also explore with Chris causation like: “if I keep doing what I’m doing what will be the outcomes of my life and is this what I want?” There’s roughly 20 hours of reading, listening and watching in 30 days to help you wonder and explore possibilities (around 30 minutes a day). Plus four extended one on one face to face coaching sessions lasting up to 3 hours outside of work hours. Not bad for a total reboot.
What is this 30 Day Back on Track program going to cost me?
There are two ways you can pay….
First is performance based. We’ll agree with you on what this Back on Track™ program will make you or save you in 6 months and you can agree to a performance fee of 10% of net gain. (net gain is usually estimated to be $300K – $400K)
Second is fixed fee. This ranges between $2k and $17K depending on urgency, circumstances and means. (usually $2-5K)

Your Investment in “Back on Track™” Actually Changes your family, work and World too…
“When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world: as I grew older and wiser I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change my country, but it too seemed immovable. As I grew into my twilight years in one last desperate attempt I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me. But alas they would have none of it!
And now I realise as I lie on my deathbed, if I had only changed myself ﬁrst, then by example I might have changed my family. From then, by example, I might have changed my friends. From their aspirations and encouragement I would have then been able to better my country, and who knows, I might have even changed the world.

We live in revolutionary times and our lives are being altered in ways we cannot predict. Every major institution is being transformed. Our most deeply held values are in dispute and the nature of personal relationships is changing drastically.
Our capacity to feed and house ourselves, to live healthy and useful lives, to work productively with one another, and to pass on a decent world to our children, is in doubt. As a result, anyone who wants to generate meaningful responses to the events of the times must become an evolutionary.
An evolutionary is the unique individual who has a deep commitment to living consciously. An evolutionary has broken with convention – he or she is a leader, or potential leader, in any ﬁeld of life.
1. Change one Change All
The lifeforce of global change is personal change, and the people who are changing in order to live productively in this new age can create extraordinary results. We all want to make changes – to see the world as a better place, to change our health, family, business and relationships. We want change and we want change to happen sooner rather than later.
2. Grab the Time
We have a golden opportunity to change the way we work and relate. We need a more sophisticated understanding of the dynamics of life in order to bridge the gap between current reality and future possibility. We need to harness the gifts of mind development and gain a deeper understanding of the human spirit. We need a non-denominational spirituality, one that Christians, Moslems, Buddhists, Hindu and Jews can all embrace. It must be transparent and free. It must be deep yet simple, and most of all it must be REAL.
3. Flexibility and Inventive approach
More than amassed capital or technology or knowledge or connections, it is this ﬂexible and inventive approach to life that will determine who recognises new resources, creates global brands, builds humanitarian business and keeps their mind body and spirit alive to enjoy the results.
4. An Evolutionary Way
For many years I have consulted with people who are keen to work as effectively as possible. The most successful evolutionaries I have encountered are moved by an expansive vision. They are fascinated by life and driven to experience it fully. They respond well to change although they do not necessarily like it. They think clearly when information is uncertain and belief structures are impaired. They see connections between a fast moving world and their vision, and they have open and receptive state of mind that is not paralysed by information they had not expected. They have mastered the art of working with people and are able to communicate honestly, pursue compelling vision and engage with integrity.
Inspiration, radical curiosity and wisdom from the heart need to be valued more.
5. Build Wealth and Enjoy Power
Putting the heart and soul back into business life is totally aligned with the outcomes of wealth, success and power. The primary difference is the opportunity to be more fulﬁlled and more motivated by our inner resources than the outer ones, to create a global consciousness instead of a local one, to look at the consequences of our actions in the long-term as well as the short-term.
Inspiration is a state available to us all. Inspiration gives us the motivation to be free to experience the majesty of our lives and to do what we love in our life. Inspiration is a science and the objective of this book is purely and simply the communication of that science.
6. It Starts With Self Awareness
I believe that global change is individual change, that the inner world is reﬂected in the outer world. I believe that changing the outer world without the inner or visa versa is fruitless. This work creates the opportunity to do both.
7, Use Courage to be Different
Those unique and courageous leaders throughout the world who step forward to accept this challenge are the leaders who will take their nations, businesses and families into the future, prepared and equipped to sustain the evolution of the human spirit and reach a higher potential. Only those who invest time and effort in personal alignment with these changes will do this well. Those who assume they can cause other people and organisations to change while they themselves stand still will not be effective. Their understanding of new forces will be inadequate. Their decisions will be unrealistic.
8. Walk the Talk
The opportunities to make a difference in the world exist within the boundaries of our own lives, professional and personal. Those changes are fundamental to the success of individuals and their business. Access is available to step beyond the aca- demic, to put people in touch with their true and heartfelt inspirations and provide opportunity for the expression of that vision, even within the workplace.
9. Learn Skills for Handling Pressure
To become more conscious in the real world is to have access to the diversity of tools and processes that can turn a major stress disaster into an inspirational experience. Beginning with the difference between motivation and inspiration, my aim is to address everyday life management issues with a fresh perspective and use my own consulting and personal business experience to mirror the possibilities. The human spirit can ﬂ y when the conditions are right, and in this book we put the power to awaken the human spirit squarely back in the hands of the individual. This is the essence of the evolutionary spirit – an independent, socially aware, conscious and inspired individual who recognises their role in a global revolution. Every person on earth has the right to that experience.
10. Beware of “Human Development Designed for the Masses
Inspiring Human Potential, my work, is about global change through personal change. It is a rebuke at so much of what is being done at present in the name of good business, religion and cultural development. My aim has been to ﬁnd a Self and other leadership model that is REAL, non-denominational, solves world problems instead of making them and is free for all to see.
