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.

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

“The only way to predict the future is to create it.”

–Peter Drucker–

External circumstances provide a platform against which we find integrity. Integrity comes from internal clarity, not external events. Nothing outside of you will ever make you feel safe enough, happy enough, fulfilled enough. The balance comes internally by taking responsibility for your choices and being comfortable in your own skin regardless of external circumstances. Knowing who, when, and what to give your time and energy to is learned through constant practice of managing your moments of feeling somehow not enough—your insecurities! The integral wisdom is recognizing the difference of not being able to see beyond your own selfish wants and needs and appreciating that you can not love and care for others more than you genuinely love and care for yourself. Pressurizing others into giving you more of what you think you need only compounds the insecure feeling of lack. When you focus on being, doing, and giving what you feel is lacking, you open the gate of receiving through giving. The pressure is then shifted from external to internal, where true happiness and fulfillment exist. Action taken from this inner place of truth creates integrity in the expression of who you are through your contributions to the world.

  • How are you taking accountability for your role in your life?
  • When was the last time you practiced managing a feeling of insecurity?
  • What did you discover?

Posted by & filed under Coffeeshop Coaching.

Today’s takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing China- 21 May 2019 is:

Topic: Forbidden City Perspectives

What is your Forbidden City? Your comfort zone, your emotions, your personal space, your closest relationship, or maybe a particular topic of discussion; meant to provide protection to something of high value somehow. When the sun shines bright, it creates a shadow, even in the Forbidden City. Maintaining a balance between the light and shadow of what you might call your Forbidden City creates integrity that allows you to expand and contract and evolve through the changes in your life. Seeing through restrictive illusions provides clarity of ways to step up to more in your life. How can you invite others in to share something of high value that only you can offer to humanity – your unique contribution to this world?

Today’s takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Sydney Australia- 10 May 2019 is:

Topic: A Few Down Under Perspectives (live from Sydney Harbour)

  • Can a difficult life situation force us to settle for the bread (job and mere survival) instead of the Vegemite (self-actualization) because we feel limited by circumstances in our freedom to choose?
  • In what ways can we trigger new momentum in our life endeavoring a walk-about of self-actualization?
  • If the walk-about represents life’s journey, which part of the walk-about are you currently experiencing?

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” –Mark Twain

Posted by & filed under Coffeeshop Coaching.

Today’s takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Apia, Samoa- 07 May 2019 is:

Topic: If you could lose one day of time, which day would you choose?

During today’s coaching from Samoa, we used the experience of a whole country losing a day by moving across the dateline as the basis of a coaching exercise addressing how we think about time from a head perspective and a heart perspective. Time can be perceived as something that seems to continually squeeze us in and can make us feel like failures because we don’t meet specific deadlines, certain achievements in life by the time we are “expected” to do so. It is easy to lose track of the undeniable fact that time on this planet is an extremely precious resource given to us in limited supply. So, shouldn’t you be the one, who defines, what use of this limited and irreplaceable resource is the right use of your time?

“The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” –Michael Altshuler

Today’s takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Nadi, Fiji – 30 April 2019 is:

Topic: With 333 remote islands and a remote control what would you do?

“Your dream doesn’t have an expiration date. Take a deep breath and try again.” – Author KT Witten

The combination of coaching and the beautiful relaxing environment of the Island Nation of Fiji brought us to addressing the balance between “relaxing and doing little as a form of living, but also welcoming the challenges and difficulties that we have consciously chosen to make our lives worth living.” (e.g., jobs, trainings, change, relationships, and many other stresses)

Resources we carry in us may lead us to create more challenge in a relaxing environment, or more calm in a busy, high-stress environment. Recalling a favorite book, a happy memory, an almost forgotten ability like math, language, singing or even remembering someone you love is a large enough piece of light to pull you out of the darkness of self-doubt. A positive memory ignites gratitude. Gratitude reconnects us to love. Love embraces and reminds us we are not alone and we are enough!

Today’s takeaway from Free Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Auckland, New Zealand – 23 April 2019 is:

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” –Marcel Proust

Topic: Sailing to New Zealand for new perspectives!

Today’s virtual coaching helped participants to question some old paradigms through new perspectives. Life is full of opportunities to help us heal past wounds. Some experiences can provoke us to take action while others can seem to force us to surrender and accept what is. Experiences can remind us of past hurts, provide new information that helps us better understand, and find a way to forgive and let go. Other experiences show us that we do have the strength to keep going.

Topic: Forbidden City Perspectives

Beijing for many evokes an image of the Forbidden City, a place in history that was reserved for the few who gained access by birth privilege but also people could gain access through achievement as worriers, administrators, sages and others. Is there a place in your life that you feel you would love to gain access to and yet feel you’re not accomplished enough to gain access. What is that place for you? Can you really not gain access? Or can you?

  • What is your Forbidden City?
  • What is of value that you would keep inside of your Forbidden City?
  • If you were the architect of the city, how would you design it to make access difficult?
  • What’s your motivation for access?
  • What might you need to give up to get inside?
  • If you could gain access, what would it give you?
  • What is precious about not having access?
  • What’s the value in staying where you are?
  • Imagine that you’ve always had access since birth, and that what’s holding you back is merely an illusion; what would you then want?

Topic: A Few Down Under Perspectives

No worries mate, Sydney gives plenty of perspectives to apply to what you want most in these virtual coffeeshop coachings. From the perfect weather perspective, a vegemite sandwich perspective, involving singing an opera perspective, the boldly bouncing kangaroo perspective, or looking through a view of what an Aborigine might think about what you want most. Starting out as a prison colony eventually liberating itself gives rise to the question of, “How am I freeing myself from what seems to be holding me back?” Where you are right now is not everything. Incentives to look for new perspectives are all over; open yourself up!

  • Is what you want most better expressed by the bread or the vegemite?
  • What do you think an Aborigine might say about what you want most?
  • What part of what you want would the kangaroo kick away?
  • If all of a sudden singing became your language, what would the tune be of what you want most?
  • G’day, mate! If every day were perfect, what is ideal about this day?

Join me online via-ZOOM for my next Virtual Coffeeshop Group Coaching! It’s free! I will be coaching you live from Samoa! No need to sign up! To join the online ZOOM Coffeeshop Group Coaching, just click the link below at the appropriate date/time-zone! 

Topic: If you could lose one day of time, which day would you choose?

Samoa has some interesting perspectives that can be utilized in coaching. It is one of few countries that switched from driving on the right to driving on the left. It could be interesting to think about what that would do to your thinking process if you lived there during that time. In time perspective they used to be where the day ends then switched to being where the day starts. They lost a day when they switched forward from being Western Hemisphere to being Eastern Hemisphere.

  • If you could lose a day of time, which day would you choose? Why?
  • Look over your left shoulder and ask, “What do I want most right now?” pause for a moment and notice what comes up. Then look over your right shoulder and ask the same question, stop again and observe what comes up.
  • What’s the same?
  • What’s different?
  • What changed?
  • What is time to me?
  • If now is not the time, when is?
