@Simon Minett I have a colleague who I have been mentoring anyway, one person here has offered to be a 'client' and I am a 'client' for another community member.
Any tips for group coaching? I have my first session tomorrow 😬(A bit stressed)
Please share some of your tips for group coaching, or maybe a thought it can help others as well to see different perspectives to how to approach it. Thank you

Have run group performance management sessions in the past. Pair people off for exercises depending on what the content is. Make sure all have equal air space especially those that are reflecting. Talk about the 4 different learning styles - activist, theorist, pragmatist and reflector and that all are important. Reflectors are often the quieter members who are digesting the information to form a synopsis. Look at how you have scheduled the time! I allocated 30 mins for one exercise and it went in to the lunch hour as it was an important one. I would have given it an hour instead.

@Nelson Montoisy could be this is more Myers Briggs which looks at personality styles and based on Jung's psychological types with lots of questions in the test. Learning styles are more about our instinctive response to a situation, usually during learning or taking on new ideas. We usually have a primary style and then a secondary style. Pyschometric testing is even more intense, focusing on behavioural style, intelligence and aptitude. All have merit but as said before, organisational psychologists would say it is an indication of how a person may behave at the time they took the test.
What’s on your bucket list for 2024?
What’s something important or exciting on your bucket list that you’re planning to achieve in the year to come? The end of one year and the beginning of another always brings a natural inclination to reflect, plan, and dream about what lies ahead. Whether it's big or small, every goal is a step towards a richer, more fulfilling life. So, let's share and motivate each other with our aspirations and dreams!

Husband finally retired in 2023, I was made redundant but all ok as I got a good package. Selling the apartment and moving from France back to Australia after 20 years of work travel in different places. Another adventure but strangely daunting returning to your own country. Have talked about cultural re-entry shock with candidates and will experience ourselves!

@Edmund Fajardo good tests like Myers Briggs, Disc, 16PFs have lots of questions and there are some kickback ones to see if you answer the same way again. It is all an indication of how we may behave at that time in that situation. US graduates are often trained by universities/colleges how to answer these in such a way. Always good to use and have merit but if we need it explained and be able to use the results, an organisational psychologist is the best person to go to.

@Raj Dash absolutely! Organisational psychologists preface a psych test report with a sentence such as "this report is an indication of how an individual may behave". Note, indication and may! I too have changed over the years, not significantly but enough if the test was used for recruitment or a career path.
What are your holiday plans?
I moved out of the country and haven't seen my adult children since January and they are flying out to spend the Christmas holiday with me and I am very excited to spend quality time with them. I would love to hear your plans?

Beta Client Experience
Yo all. I am excited to write about my experience this morning. I threw out my own ideas of how to facilitate a transformative breakthrough session and did exactly what Ed taught in this course and used his templates - recorded the session for the certification as asked. My results were fantastic. Huge breakthrough using the belief chain breaker and a shiny client at the end. I am marveling at the way this is all set up - so generous and clear. The way we are incentivized to grow community - the materials - the encouragement - and the genuine care by Ed and his team. What’s next? No limits. When i get real results for my clients I feel I too evolve. What a great feeling.

Great to hear!
Are we seeking significance
Here’s a thought that just occurred to me. Tony Robbins talks about the different human needs - one being the need for significance. While I know that most of us coaches become coaches because we want to serve but is there a level of significance that gets created for us in the process of helping others? 🤔🧐 What do you think?

For both parties. My focus is on career counselling/issues - my significance is bringing decades of relevant experience to the table and the client is assessing their significance and asking for a coach to help them find that.
Where are you guys all joining from?
Let’s call it survey Thursday. 😉 I am based in London, born in France but from Italian roots. (i.e. citizen of the world). What about you? 🙃

@Melinda Williams I am one of the first wave of TCKs, Third Culture Kids, lots you can find out about us. We moved, go to many schools (10 for me), shift through cultures and generally haven't experienced having a normal sense of home. Friends, pets, partners and furniture are often the key aspects that make a place home for a TCK.

Following decades of executive recruitment, I found myself mentoring/supporting others career paths, issues etc. Moving back to Australia next year and looking to work with voluntary organisations to help people, particularly those from low-economic backgrounds, to get in to or back in to the workforce. Will happily do 1:1 consultations in general.
How do you learn, are you an Activist, Theorist, Pragmatist or Reflector?
In organisational design/team creation, it is good to note the benefits and differences of 4 learning styles (Honey & Mumford). Activist – activists are the 'doers'. They need to get into the action and experience what they’re trying to learn. These team members often an open mind, they like to talk and brainstorm, and they’re open to group discussions and problem-solving. Theorist – They want to understand the theory behind the process or strategy. Manuals, models and reading up on facts are key for them to understand what the subject and intention is about. Pragmatist – Pragmatists want to know how to put what they’re learning into practice in the real world. They usually don't like abstract concepts or games. These team members will experiment with theories, ideas, and then see how they can practically introduce them to the day to day. Reflector – often the quieter colleague. They generally prefer to watch and listen, often thinking too much talk is happening but are great for a team as they can collect data, synthesise the conversation and offer a summary.

@Amber Kosmas there is probably a test somewhere you can take! Look up Honey & Mumford.

@Amber Kosmas then you are great for instruction. The positives are you really understand your subject and often create the Quick Reference Guides etc. Negative is that sometimes you don't have time to read everything which can unnerve theorists as they may feel they are going in uninformed. I am a pragmatist followed by a secondary learning style of activist. Pros and cons for all of the styles!
Lies don't stick
How do you as a business owner, coach, online social media producer, parent, daughter/son detatch your emotions from negative untruthful statements which people sometimes vocalize?.. so that you can smile calmly at that person who is speaking the lie with genuine kind eyes and goodwill to them? ... How can you repeatedly detatch yourself from getting bothered over these lies so that people eventually come face to face with thé truth instead ? What mental/spiritual/emotional exercises do you do to make those lies roll off of you like water off of a duck's back ?

That we all need guidance at some stage of our lives which helps understand why we are doing what we are doing. Why we behave the way we do.

Not knowing the dynamics of your relationships, sometimes go it alone, this is for you but just ask for support when you need time to focus on this course etc.
