Group Coffeeshop Coaching during the International Coaching Week 2022

“Life is meant for awesome adventures, good friends, great coaches, and LOTS of coffee!”

Melody Taylor-Fliege

ICF Chapter Berlin decided to make group coffeeshop coaching one of our featured events of “Reimagine The Future” during International Coaching Week 2022. Together with 7 coaches in 8 locations sprinkled all over Berlin, we hosted 9 live Coffeeshop Coaching Sessions this past week, bringing coaching awareness to more people across the beautiful international city of Berlin, Germany. Coffeeshop coachings were offered in German, English, and Russian language. The coaches had participants from various countries, including Germany, the USA, Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. Besides the international character of Berlin and the ICF Berlin specifically, it became visible how much the need for qualified coaching is independent from one’s nationality or mother tongue. However, as big as global problems appear to us, to the individual, it always comes back to very personal and practical issues that seem to be so similar in all nationalities and which can be addressed in coaching. For the ICF, that means we followed the model “think globally and act locally.” I couldn’t be more proud of the dedication, flexibility, and creativity coaches have shown to make group coffeeshop coaching a serious-fun, relaxing part of International Coaching Week.

Das ICF Chapter Berlin hat beschlossen, das Gruppen-Coffeeshop-Coaching zu einer unserer wichtigsten Veranstaltungen von “Reimagine The Future” während der International Coaching Week 2022 zu machen. Zusammen mit 7 Coaches an 8 Standorten in ganz Berlin haben wir in der vergangenen Woche 9 Live-Coffeeshop-Coaching-Sitzungen veranstaltet, um mehr Menschen in der schönen internationalen Stadt Berlin, Deutschland, auf Coaching aufmerksam zu machen. Coffeeshop-Coachings wurden in deutscher, englischer und russischer Sprache angeboten. Die Trainer hatten Teilnehmer aus verschiedenen Ländern, darunter Deutschland, die USA, Russland, Weißrussland und die Ukraine. Neben dem internationalen Charakter Berlins und insbesondere des ICF Berlin wurde deutlich, wie sehr der Bedarf an qualifiziertem Coaching unabhängig von der Nationalität oder Muttersprache ist. Doch so groß globale Probleme uns auch erscheinen, dem Einzelnen, es kommt immer wieder auf sehr persönliche und praktische Themen zurück, die in allen Nationalitäten so ähnlich zu sein scheinen und die im Coaching angesprochen werden können. Für die ICF bedeutet das, dass wir dem Modell “global denken und lokal handeln” gefolgt sind. Ich könnte nicht stolzer auf das Engagement, die Flexibilität und die Kreativität sein, die Coaches gezeigt haben, um das Coaching von Gruppen-Coffeeshops zu einem unterhaltsamen, entspannenden Teil der International Coaching Week zu machen.

Coffeeshop coaching is confidential, while using a more relaxed and informal platform that being lost in a crowded room can provide. We meet over a cup of coffee or tea, and although this isn’t corporate coaching, don’t be fooled into believing that the depth and amount of change to be achieved is any less. This style of coaching is just as committed as any other form of coaching just experienced in a more gentle and relaxed way of coaching support, encouragement, and none-judgmental accountability. These group coachings usually last 60-90 minutes and they are FREE!

If you are struggling with big changes in your life, need to make a decision, or just need to be heard, coffeeshop coaching can be the perfect platform for you. Coaching is a productive relationship enabling YOU to:

  • Creatively explore solutions
  • Prevent self-sabotage
  • Take actions that move YOU forward
  • Achieve YOUR goals
  • Attain clarity in what YOU want

Today’s Takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – via ZOOM – 03 April 2022 is:

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”

Zig Ziglar

In today’s coffee shop coaching, we addressed challenges that we are going through in the search for a meaningful career and striving to be there for loved ones, for which we would wish for a different outcome than what we are seeing right now. We established that the search for a way that gives us control of the situation is futile. Control is not really what we will achieve nor what we should even strive for. In our challenges, however much they demand from us, it is essential that we remember that we need to stay healthy and balanced. The striving for control very often does the opposite; it stresses us out and costs us sleep and well-being. Taking care of ourselves through emotionally letting go of what stresses us right now, seeking distance, using balancing techniques, breathing techniques, yoga stretches, etc., will bring us closer to what we want to achieve than desperate longing for control of the situation.

  • What is one question I can ask right now to help open new thinking and create new actions?

We all have our own battles and personal problems to struggle with. Some may seem trivial, while others are quite difficult to win over. At times, when such challenges come into our lives, it may seem as if there is no way out; that there is no way to overcome the difficulties. This mindset may keep us from experiencing genuine happiness. When you are at the brink of such desperate points in your life, remember that your journey has a purpose and that you will find a way to rise above the difficulties in your life – and fine genuine happiness – by practicing these helpful ways to keep you on that track.

Tip 1: Find pleasure in the things that are.

No, the pandemic, the endless lockdowns, the forced withdrawals from shopping, that’s not what any one of us wanted. But look around and discover things that are there for us that we used to take for granted and which gained value. Have you ever appreciated your neighborhood park more in your life as an escape, even an oasis? Have you used the time of physical distance to re-connect remotely? Have you discovered that some of the relationships that needed to exist remotely are so important that separation almost hurt? Isn’t that something to take comfort in, having something so precious?

Tip 2: Live the Team!

Being in any type of team can be a bother. Teams at work, in the family, even your chosen sports or other hobby teammates can stress you out. However, some introspection will tell you fast that you have your quirks and that there are times when you are grateful to others for accepting you like you are. Strive for accepting team relationships for what they are. Our diversity makes life exciting, even when they come with qualities that make it difficult sometimes to be around us. Just accept that fact instead of searching for irritants, and you will discover that person at work, that difficult sibling is just who they are and maybe not so bad after all. Address your entire time in the team with this attitude, and you’ll find it easier to spend time even with the difficult team members. Living a “people are people” approach should also make it easier to cut yourself a little slack.

Tip 3: Take the Bull by the horns!

Teams can create the impression that we can lean back and let everyone else do it. A German fun interpretation of the word team (Toll ein anderer macht’s= great, someone else is doing it!) refers to this phenomenon. Sure, that sounds comfortable, but is this what you want? Aren’t you on the team to have fun working? To grow? Don’t give in to the temptation of hiding behind someone else. You know what you can do. Get out there and prove it! Most importantly to yourself.

Tip 4: Find joint relaxation and recognition of what’s been achieved.

Accomplishing as a team is not just brutal hard work. It is also important to find the time to celebrate the milestones that have been accomplished, celebrate together, play together. The challenge will find you again in due time.

Today’s Takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – via ZOOM – 06 March 2022 is:

“We have to get used to the idea that at the most important crossroads in our life there are no signs.”

Ernest Hemingway

In today’s coffee shop coaching, we explored crossroads in our lives and questioned the best ways of making decisions on the way forward. New perspectives opened ways of how previous choices and other prior experiences can help us make informed decisions today. In one way or another, our choices are knowingly or unknowingly always influenced by our values. Experiences and choices are not necessarily in themselves good or bad; they are just that, experiences. If we look at what we have experienced in life and the choices we have made in the light of our values while conscious of our values, every experience can contribute to building up a better basis for decision making, including intuition-based decision making. Bad or boring job experiences, unsuccessful job applications can always contribute to our treasure of knowledge and wisdom and thus guide us into a more fulfilled work life in the future. The same can be applied to our personal lives. The basis is to have a good understanding of what our values are. Coaching is a precious tool to guide us towards understanding our own values, use more integrity in our decision-making process, and connect with what drives us forward.

Today’s Takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – via ZOOM – 06 February 2022 is:

Part of change can feel like a loss. “If seeking the good in what seems like a bad situation makes you feel uncomfortable, then try to remember that you are not devaluing what you’ve lost or replacing it coldheartedly. You are surrendering to the fact that in life, we sometimes have to let go and allow for what is new to enter the open spaces created by our losses. In doing so, you are honoring what has left you and welcoming the new into your life with open space, an open mind, and an open heart.”

Madisyn Taylor

Today’s Group Coffeeshop Coaching topics centered around finding balance in the new year following two years of COVID. This New Lunar Year of the Tiger is a year of uproar, commotion, restlessness, and bold new moves. It’s time to trust the inner compass to guide the path. However, life is full of tough choices that challenge our integrity as we find balance through the give and take in all our relationships. We question whether we are genuinely helping another help themselves or keeping them weak.

I’m going to re-emphasize a few questions from my New Year’s blog to help you ROAR into this Yew Lunar Year with more strength in action.

  • How can I be more honest with myself to face down and conquer my fears this year? And is there a way to do it differently?
  • Can I see the light of my strength through the darkness of my weakness?
  • What have I been avoiding, running from inside that wants to be heard and seen?
  • What has seemed intimidating and scary that has been blocking my vision?
  • How can I self-parent in the most loving and forth-coming way?
  • How can I take a step and show up into something that may feel less familiar and a little less comforting?

Create and use mantras or affirmations to support achieving your 2022 vision! Here is one to get you started:

  • I no longer need to evolve and learn through crisis. I am available now to evolve and learn through inspiration, beauty, creativity, originality, and a heart-focused path.
