Today’s Takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – via ZOOM – 05 September 2021 is:
“Our true reality is in our identity and unity with all life.”Joseph Campbell
“Continue to be yourself because in the end that’s what people will remember about you.”Uknown
In today’s group coffeeshop coaching, our shared experiences led us straight to the topic of identity. Whether it is forced inactivity, career changes based on choices or circumstances, it all makes us confront our identity. Our SELF is more than a chosen identity, like a profession, career, or other activity, which is always only one expression of our true self. Looking at the totality of our circumstances and embracing how we are expressing ourselves while opening to the fact how much more we truly are will help us to accept change, however scary or uncomfortable it might seem at the time.
- What is on the other side of my fear?
- How do I trust that what is before me will lead me to my next best step?
- What truly happens when I trust the timing of things?
The intake questions for my zoom coffeeshop coachings are always intriguing to read as people from all over the world sign up for my 1st Sunday group coaching each month. The way I set up the intake questions allows the participants to create the topic each time. So I never really know what the next coffeeshop coaching will discover until it is happening. I love a great mystery! Don’t you?
From the multiple intake questions, I create a word cloud of participants’ important words. And to set the tone of the coaching, I also create an anonymous sheet listing the many topics, challenges, and questions to get the most out of this coaching for everyone. This is another part I love, because of the many images, emotions, and curiosities that get sparked when I bring the individual pieces together for the group. Coaching is not about fixing; it is about discovering together new possibilities, creating new tools to combat challenging situations, finding new ways to relieve stress, or whatever is weighing you down!
