Coaching Tip of the Month

Oct 29, 2018

It’s easy to think of a goal as a simple task or a specific outcome – such as meditating each day for ten minutes or losing five pounds. To broaden your scope, try thinking about goals in the following three categories:

Experiences –
What experience would you like to have?
An experience of travel, meeting new people, romance, a healthy body, feeling abundant, etc…

Growth –
Where in your life do you want to grow? Where is your leading edge?
Learning something new or taking on an expansive challenge, for example. 

Legacy –
What legacy do you want to leave behind? What do you want to be known for, stand for, or give in service to others?

Once you’ve created a list of areas you’d like to experience, grow, and serve, then you can create tasks or action plans from there. You’ll be amazed at the goals that can come out of this approach!

This was an incredible learning journey, both personally and professionally. The leadership skills were discussed in creative and useful ways and the class exercises really forced on to think and happy each skill to themselves. We leave this class [If Steve Jobs Were Your Coach] armed with incredible knowledge about ourselves, our coaching and our life!

Writing, Creativity and the Mindful Coach takes each of these key components and weaves them together to create an effective tool for coaching. It allows both coach and client different ways to dive deeper into the coaching agenda and help the client uncover thoughts/feelings that might be illusive in a safe way.

The life skills taught in this course [Skillful Means] are not just for our coachees, they are for ourselves, too. I plan to take it again and look forward to seeing how my skills strengthen with time – and PRACTICE!

Learning the language of NVC with Srdjan Vukcevic felt like being immersed in a pool of empathy and authenticity. At its heart, NVC allows us to be seen and heard and Srdjan’s mindful, steady, and experiential approach to teaching made certain that everyone of us felt heard and seen during every class. Read more

This course [Body Electric] really teaches you how to dive deep into somatic awareness. I was looking to get more comfortable with this practice and the class exceeded my expectations from the book to the instructor, Ann-Marie, to the guest lecturers. Many “WOW” moments as I used the techniques for myself and with my clients.

Right Speech is not only something you can take into your coaching practice but it’s something you can take into your personal life as well. These skills have already been extremely helpful in my everyday life from encounters with family to encounters with strangers and everything in between. You won’t regret taking it, I promise!

I quickly started looking forward to Tuesday evenings. I never knew what the take away (from class) would be, but came to recognize it would be rich and meaningful – whether it was from my own process or through witnessing the process and collaboration with my colleagues.
