Coaching ~ Training ~ Masterminds ~ Productivity Expert
Hi and welcome mom entrepreneurs!
I’m Cena Block, and I’m a mompreneur life-flow coach and productivity expert. I’m a professional facilitator, coach, author, and speaker who helps service business owners struggling to ‘manage it all’… DO it all in the time they have!
How I Became A Flow-Coach
In 2008 after a break from corporate to raise my young children, I founded SaneSpaces.com and in 2012, I launched the Time & Space Style Inventory™, the premier time management and organizing personality style on line assessment. This online assessment provides a starting point for coaches, organizers, consultants and educators who helping those struggling with staying organized and managing their time.
Why I Coach Mompreneurs
My coaching niche is high-performers! I love working with high-energy professional women, professionals with ADHD (diagnosed or not), and I have a sweet-spot for working with mom entrepreneurs, because I am one. I believe that being a mom is the most important job you’ll ever have and I am deeply committed to supporting moms to live and work powerfully while having time to support busy, thriving, successful kids. Although I market to mompreneurs, I do love to work with all entrepreneurs in the later start-up to early growth phases of business. Many of my clients are in the later stages of life, having enjoyed long careers, and are looking for some new way to bring their talents, specialties, and passions to the world. I specialize in helping those who’ve already launched and are looking to regain their time, optimize marketing, tighten up branding, increase sales, implement systems and raise their profit margins.
How Coaching Works
Whether you work with me one on one or join one of my group programs, you benefit from my investment in training, coaching and certifications I’ve received along life’s way. My programs follow a proven step by step process to help you discover and declare your business vision, align your marketing message with your values and offers. This helps you attract more ideal clients, create savvy systems, take care of yourself, and develop supportive relationships around you so your business becomes more profitable and fuels the dream lifestyle you desire, by design.
Sandwich Generation Challenges
Many of my clients identify with “sandwich generation’, stuck between growing children, and older parents. As such, my ideal clients typically want their businesses to support their freedom and flexibility first. This way they can have ultimate control over their schedule and take the time they need to live their lives. They also want to deliver their services through a powerful, transformational and profitable business model.
Though most of my clients are smart, educated, sophisticated, professional and experts in their zone of brilliance, many people struggle with juggling all the details, marketing and sales. I also work with a fair share of business owners and professionals living with ADD or ADHD. Though they are creative, high performers, and know they CAN do whatever they set out to accomplish, many have trouble prirotizing and completing things on time. Most of my clients are very high performers. but manage a high degree of stress. The lack of systems, big plans, and regular routines makes them feel out of control. They are not sure how to bring all the pieces and parts together so their life ‘feels’ right and fits their many passions.
Inside-Out Coaching: Intention, Awareness, Action, Completion, Evaluation
Through deep awareness and informed action, my clients gain clarity, line up their business and expertise puzzle pieces, increase their productivity, attract their most ideal clients and create time to enjoy their lives and businesses again. The process of working together ignites their passion to make a difference in the world through their business and within their sphere of intimacy.
In addition to coaching, I also host interactive workshops for entrepreneurs, women in business, corporations, groups and non-profit associations.
The Time & Space Style Inventory
I developed the Time & Space Style Inventory (TSSI™). This is the first online assessment to help people understand their natural style of time management and space organization. Individual style reports serve as a starting point for coaches, organizers and educators dedicated to helping those who struggle with organizing space and managing their time. This online assessment tool and membership site provide a starting point for coaches, organizers and educators dedicated to helping those who struggle with organizing space and managing their time.
I’ve written a few publications: The Time & Space Style Inventory Style Guide: The Professional’s Resource, Time To Toss It, and Getting It All Done in The Unstoppable Woman’s Guide To Emotional Well Being. And I love to lend my expertise at engagements centering around women, work-family balance, career and self-development, productivity, curriculum design, teaming, management and leadership.
Background & Brief Bio
My career background encompasses curriculum design, management training, leadership, performance and organizational development. My areas of expertise span from productivity (time management, organizing and optimizing workflows), to teaming, leadership, communication, presentation skills, and facilitation. My workshops are designed to combine self-assessment, wellness practices and success principles that guide attendees to take powerful action and enhance awareness.
My professional expertise comes from more than 25 years of human performance development in the areas of, change management, supervising, career coaching, management skills, performance coaching, training design and delivery and entrepreneurship. I also hold certifications and accreditations in many world-wide training and coaching programs.Before leaving corporate, I led employee engagement initiatives, directed performance planning, managed staff, and implemented improvement initiatives for an employee base of more than 28,000. I am master-certified as a facilitator, and working toward COC coaching accreditations which I expect to finish in 2017.
I achieved both my BS and MS in Communications from Ithaca College and am certified in many human performance systems (ODI, Inside-Out Coaching, Behavioral Technology, Organization Development Inc. and many others). As a professional organizer, I have worked with chronically disorganized populations and those who struggle with ADHD, OCD, PTSD, TBI and other brain-related conditions. While working as a professional organizer, I served as president of the Northern NJ Chapter of National Association of Professional Organizers, (NAPO NNJ: 2012 – 2014) & am a member of both Pike County, PA and Greater Scranton, PA Chambers of Commerce.
I am committed to serving as many entrepreneurs in late start up as I can. I also WANT to work with you to save you the time, headaches and heartaches of the start-up failures I’ve lived (and thankfully survived through), Therefore I’ve created packages to flexibly serve clients with different layers of engagement. Typically, the more 1-to-1 coaching time you desire, the more you’ll invest, and the faster you’ll realize results.
