Back to School

    It’s that time of year again! Whether or not you are officially “back to school,” this is a great opportunity to assess how you would like to keep bettering yourself. (This could be for your own personal development, professional development, for your own self care.) Sometimes it’s difficult to assess when we need to turn inward, process and contemplate, and/or when we need to turn our attention outward and act on what we’ve already learned.     Here is a “mini-assessment” to help…

Interdependence

    Everyone here in the United States will soon be celebrating Independence Day. We often celebrate with parties, picnics, great food, and fireworks. Then, on July 5th, Dr. Linda Bark likes to celebrate what she calls “Interdependence Day”; a day to celebrate connection, collaboration, and working together to form the whole. To be clear, it’s not about celebrating independence OR interdependence, but about coming from an integral perspective and celebrating both. As social beings, we have a desire to connect with each other, make…

Transitions

    Many people are in the midst of transformation right now, both in their personal and professional lives. This transition from the “old” to the “new” can find us smack-dab in “the gap”; the place where the “new” hasn’t landed yet, and we’ve come untethered from the “old.”   If you are currently in “the gap” right now, consider these coaching questions: Are you comfortable in “the gap”? Do you try to avoid it at all costs? Do you jump right over it? Do…

Chaos

  Changes in this world are happening quicker than we think and it can be hard to adjust. It feels like chaos here in the United States. Political parties are pitted against one another, extreme weather is becoming the “new normal”, and stories of gun violence are populating the news. This in addition to personal issues, relationship issues, financial issues, and/or health issues that we (or those close to us) are experiencing, can add to a cocktail of instability mixed with fear with overwhelm.   …

Using Intuition for Your 2019 Vision

  We talk about intuition in our coach training courses; how we all have the ability to tune into our inner knowing, and that we can do this in all sorts of ways. Some of our students get a “gut instinct” and they just know the truth, some see pictures/images in their mind’s eye, some “just know” when they do muscle testing, or when all the hairs on their arms stand on end. Some receive intuitive guidance through dreams or meditation and then they are…

Progress

    At the core of coaching is respect and empowerment…and historically, the political system in the United States has been very slow to demonstrate a lot of respect or empowerment, particularly toward women. As we look to the future, at least politically, there seems to be progress. More than 100 women have been newly voted into Congress, along with more young people, and more diversity.   This holiday season, we can at least feel grateful for moving toward more respect, embracing more diversity, and…

Transparency

  Linda has been thinking about something she heard years ago: that there are no secrets. Do you think that’s true? It’s an interesting question to ponder…    If there really were no secrets in this world, there would be no need to manipulate; people simply wouldn’t do it because the truth/facts would be in front of everyone and we would have better, open, direct communication. Our energy could then go to solving problems and creating solutions to the issues we face. “Backroom deals” would be…
