Welcome Pru from State of Creation!

State Of Creation - Pru Chapman
A few months ago I had the privilege of having Pru Chapman enter my life. It’s always great to be introduced to someone that you just know will have a positive flow on affect on your life and the way that you work. Pru runs a very successful ‘coaching’ business, State of Creation, here on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. It’s all about guiding “…clients to develop personal leadership to create clear focus and realise their potential”. From a creatives’ point of view I think this brings meaning to what I do and I couldn’t think of a more deserving person to promote.

#1. Coffee or tea? What is your poison?

Coffee.  Hands down.  I take it short and strong (kind of like me).  Sometimes I try and trick myself into tea, but coffee always courageously comes out on top.

#2. What colour/s do you like to surround yourself with and why?

I’m always surrounded by blue.  I find it to be the perfect balance between a sense of calm and inspiration in my world.  I’m also a water baby, and swimming in the sea with a blue sky above is my favourite place to be.

{jenious: We share your love of blue, and the power of water. The energy of both are very powerful & inspiring! }

#3. Top 5 on your current playlist.

Daft Punk; The Bahamas; City and Colour; Laura Marling; Ceú.

{jenious: Great to see we have no ‘commercial’ music here! Love it!}

#4. A book that really got me thinking was....?

Start with Why by Simon Sinek.  I’m a firm believer that our ‘why’ should drive everything that we do.  If we lose our ‘why’ we lose our purpose, so it is so important to connect daily with our ‘why’.

#5. My passion is...?

Opening the floodgates to human potential.  I am constantly amazed, inspired, and having my breath taken away by what people are capable of.  I am privileged and humbled to often be a part of the journey with my clients.  I’m also extraordinarily passionate about coffee (refer to question 1), health, fitness and travel.  My partner is Brazilian so we travel to Brazil annually, and when we’re home if I’m not at Crossfit, you’ll find me running, swimming, hiking or snowboarding!

{jenious: And this is what draws me in. We are all capable of our own potential! We just have to aspire to grow & learn}

#6. The reason I do what I do?

See above 😉

#7. 3 words that describe who YOU are/what you do?

Inspired by possibility.

#8. How long have you been in the industry?

I started my journey in the field of Psychology in 1998, and after finishing my degree went into research and then clinical practice.  While I loved the variety and challenge of psychology in private practice I have had a long obsession with peak performance.  My curiosity about what enables people to get to the top of their game, in life, in work, and all worthy pursuits led me to coaching.  I’m thrilled now that my work keeps me dancing at the edge of my own potential, and to be working with clients who are as passionate as me about fulfilling their potential.  I work athletes, business owners, teams and everyday individuals to really turbo charge their results.

#9. What makes your business stand out from the rest in the industry?

I operate primarily across the Sports, Travel, Adventure & Creative industries – all of which are strong interests of mine, so I am passionate about working within. Also, my foundations in psychology really provide a firm base for the personal transformation of my clients – coaching can go anywhere and my breadth and depth of experience provides a supportive and stimulating journey for my clients.

#10. What's the best thing about your job and why?

It is truly being witness to the transformation in my client’s lives, and the flow on effect to those around them.  Peak Performance Coaching involves everything from awareness, mindset shift, focus, through to communication, personal and team development. Through the journey of an individual transformation everyone around benefits including colleagues, team members, families and partners.  I love the ripple effect.

{jenious: And so do we Pru… so do we!}
