Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 17 October 2019 is:

“Be kind. Be thoughtful. Be genuine. But most of all, be thankful.” –Author Unknown

You want to expand yourself past your current boundaries into a bigger, better version of yourself. Self-expression comes in a myriad of forms, but authentic expression can be awkward to articulate when you are unclear in your direction. Coaching is one resource supporting you through active listening, reflecting, and powerful questions that can help you find expressive tools so you can better share what you feel inside with the external world.

  • What other resources can you use to help you find authentic expression?
  • How can less be more?
  • What is your creative next step?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 15 October 2019 is:

“You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.” –Brian Tracy

Change is inevitable, and it can be challenging and difficult; forgiving and letting go, changing habits, jobs, or countries. Most of the time, we are the cause and need to change and do things differently. Resistance usually makes change more difficult, while acceptance and surrendering can make for a more pleasant transforming process. Using a piece of paper can help distance your thoughts and create more clarity. Understanding how to listen to your personal values can help you find direction. Facing each obstacle deliberately, one at a time, or only focusing on what is before you right now. These are a few tools that can help you find solutions in moments of high-stress.

  • What would help you right now to activate your intuition?
  • What was your first thought in answering that question? It is probably the best thing to do.
  • What else has helped you keep a clear and logical mind while pursuing your goals and dreams?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 10 October 2019 is:

“This too shall pass. It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.” –Author Unknown

Change always has difficulty in it, and many times we need to be very uncomfortable before we are willing to change. Sometimes we choose to open up, step into vulnerability, and surrender to the uncomfortableness knowing it will come and go like breathing. Stability and balance are about being awake, aware, and consciously embracing even the difficult moments that are growing you and expanding you into a bigger, better version of YOU; while also recognizing when to rest and regain your strength and perspective.

  • How do you maintain balance through change?
  • How can you face forward to what is coming your way?
  • How can you take action even if it seems less than what you want?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 08 October 2019 is:

“It’s okay to say no to things that drain you. Show up to what really matters.” –Michelle Maros

Do you ever feel like there is more inside of you trying to wake up and show itself; like all that you’ve accomplished so far is not enough and you want something more? Looking from a drone-overview perspective:

  • Which of your actions and choices can you see that have carried you to this moment and give your life beauty and aliveness?
  • What do you notice that can help strengthen you now?
  • What can you let go of; what needs to be released?

Life is meant for awesome adventures, good friends, great coaches, and LOTS of coffee! – Melody Taylor-Fliege

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.

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 26 September 2019 is:

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

The ups and downs of stress can be confusing and challenging, especially when the downs turn into negative thinking. There is a difference between wallowing in negativity and diving deeper into it to face, acknowledge, accept, and letting go in order to move on to what comes next. Gratitude, creativity and consistency can be valuable tools to cope with stress. For example, consistency in routines that are simple enough to quickly complete, flexible enough to still accomplish even with delays, yet effective enough to capture motivation that engages you in the next action.

  • What tools have been effective in managing your stress?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 24 September 2019 is:

“Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” –Socrates

Life comes in cycles, like having children, going to school, moving to a new country, or retirement. Finding a rhythm within each cycle can be challenging. Each cycle has things that just have to be done, and sometimes we lose ourselves in getting things done or doing things for others. Each cycle also gives us more skills and abilities to handle the new and unexpected surprises of change. You have your creative expression to love and connect with others. What happens when you shine the light of your creative expression inwards; can you also apply it and connect to yourself?

  • How do you use creativity to transform self-doubt into self-empowerment?
  • What unique structures can you create to help you live with more integrity – aligned with your values?
  • How do you stay flexible enough to harmonize intuition with logic in all your choices?
  • How do you keep your mind as open as possible and reach past your old boundaries?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 19 September 2019 is:

“Minds are like parachutes. They only function when open.” –Thomas Dewar

Being stuck is usually about repeatedly running a single story or the same version of a story over and over again. Perspectives are a powerful coaching tool used to break this repeating cycle. Knowing that this is helpful and doing it are two different things. Applying new perspectives can be more difficult, especially alone. These Coffeeshop Coaching groups amaze me with the unique perspectives that surface. Culture and language differences become a catalyst rather than a barrier for new, creative, and diverse perspectives!

  • How can I look at my situation in a new perspective; backward, upside-down, inside-out, and opening the parachute of my mind?

Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 17 September 2019 is:

“In our lives, change is unavoidable, loss is unavoidable. In the adaptability and ease with which we experience change lies our happiness and freedom.” –Buddha

Each Coffeeshop Coaching produces makeshift tools of adaptability. It is fascinating to witness people transform right before my eyes as they reconnect to their personal truth! Sometimes, merely shining the light of our awareness on the source of our resistance is all that is needed to dismantle its power.

  • What I know to be true right now is…?
  • One thing I can do right now is…?
  • How am I enough right now?
  • The most creative thing I can do right now is…?
