Our favorite definition for coaching comes from Robert Holden:
"the opportunity to get into important conversations you would otherwise have been too busy to have."(1)
Appreciative Coaching is inspired in Appreciative Inquiry, which is the study of what is best in people.(2)
Appreciative Coaching may be done individually or in a group.
A typical engagement includes:
honoring our past
leveraging our strengths
envisioning our future
clarifying what actions and habits will get us the results we want
cultivating selected habits
letting go of limiting beliefs
celebrating progress and accomplishments
Appreciative Project Management comes as companion in this process to take us from thoughts to results.
We re-learn to live in the now. Breathing. Observing our thoughts, emotions, and surroundings. Transforming our patterns in consciousness. Directing our inner dialogue. Awakening. Expanding. Being ourselves. Owning our Power. Manifesting our dreams.
