Today we find ourselves living in unprecedented transitions. The global scope of change we face together is disrupting how we live, work, and love. Consequently, we require new forms of thinking, feeling, and relating. Whether your life has retained some homeostasis or you are currently immersed in crisis and loss, collectively we all require courage, vision, and discipline to shape better-shared futures.
We see three skills essential for you to successfully navigate the complex transitions shaping our world:
Coaching in a Time Between Worlds is for individuals who:
Have a deep commitment to being for one another no matter race, gender, creed or any other difference.
Have a learner-mindset: Openness, humility, hunger for learning
Want to expand their ability to work with us-them dynamics and creating truly inclusive cultures that can include our differences.
Want to be in a training context where they are challenged in a supportive environment to find new ways of being, behaving, and serving individuals and groups.
