Today I’m excited to talk with Dhru Beeharilal about Identity Coaching and its importance.
Dhru partners with individuals to help them identify and overcome blind spots and limiting beliefs in their career, business, and life. Dhru thrives in creativity and acts as a thought partner and general “Swiss Army Knife” for his clients, bringing multiple perspectives to any conversation in order to facilitate his clients’ self-awareness and growth.
Dhru’s approach combines positive psychology, somatic psychology, diversity and equity, and traditional coaching to create: Identity Coaching. This approach cuts across all contexts of coaching and incorporates the unique intersections of demographics that make up our identity, as well as how that identity impacts our leadership, our organizations, our relationships, and our overall fulfillment with our lives. Dhru serves not only as a coach but as a thought partner and thought-provoker, meeting his clients where they are in order to accompany them on their leadership and self-development journeys. Dhru is certified to administer and debrief the Hogan Assessments, the Leadership Circle Profile 360 Assessment, as well as the both the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI), and the Intercultural Conflict Style Inventory (ICS) Assessments. Dhru is also a graduate of the Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies Leadership Coaching Certificate program and is an ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC).
Dhru says we spend too much time trying to control external factors but not enough time controlling our own thoughts and reactions. We always have a choice, even if it isn’t easy to make.
We also discuss why we chose to stay in bad situations because of fear of the unknown. People get comfortable in the victim mentality because it is easier to blame someone else than take responsibility and make a change.
There are 2 parts to identity:
1. Absolute identity, which is who you are at your core, that doesn’t necessarily change
2. Contextual or relational identity, which is how you interact with the world and how you let the world interact with you
Dhru says Identity Coaching starts with defining and knowing yourself. Once you have self awareness you can take steps to make changes.
He encourages us to reframe any negative feedback and tell yourself a new story to make progress. Instead of getting down on yourself use the specific feedback to know what to work on.
Dhru also reminds everyone to give themselves grace, changes take time to make so focus on the progress.
