A Fresh and Unique Approach to Coaching
The body never lies. It speaks to us from its most authentic place, acting as a database and informing us about what is truly arising for us in any given moment. It speaks through our eyes, through our ease or tension, through gesture, through vocal inflection. It communicates whether we are available and accessible or closed off. The body unveils our distortions and self-deceptions. The body shows us where we our armored or protected, and how that may inhibit our receptivity to others and to new possibilities. We live in a world that encourages us to lead from our heads. What if we could avail ourselves of our whole self- the mind, intuition and instinct, and the heart? What if we could respond knowing fully where we are coming from and what we are moving towards?
A coaching session using the body is as valuable as ten sessions of talking. It embodies the vision. Working with the body reveals our blocks or limitations and can transform that same resistant energy into unimpeded, inspired action. Talking about goals and challenges is valuable. Using the body moves those ideas and enables us to communicate our vision to others effectively. It is not about just thinking the thought, but rather engaging and aligning the whole self with the intention.
The body is the most powerful of all self-awareness tools. Others perceive us through our physical stance and body language, our behaviors, our word choice- through our persona, how we project ourselves to the world. What if we could come to the world, personally and professionally, with a pure and powerful authenticity?
Using the Enneagram in Coaching
The Enneagram is one of the most valuable tools for growing emotional intelligence (EQ). Emotional intelligence has more to do with success in life and in the workplace than any other talent or skill.
Someone with emotional intelligence possesses social and personal competence which include: the ability to know what one is feeling, the ability to know how to express those feelings in a clear, mature, and productive way, have a truthful self-assessment, and exhibit self-motivation and confidence.
