What is the question that is animating
your life right now?
This was the prompt given by the legendary organizational development consultant and author Peter Block at a workshop I attended several years ago. It’s a great question.
We’re all sitting with something that is driving us, or perhaps gnawing at us:
What's next for me? Is it time for me to leave my job?
What am I going to do about this difficult employee?
What’s the best structure for our growing team?
How can I best drive change in my organization?
What will it take for me to get unstuck around this thing that’s been keeping me up at night?
These questions deserve our attention. But it can be hard to make the time, or keep our focus on these big questions, with all the "little stuff" that gets in the way.
I designed the Breakthrough Coaching Intensive so that you could give your thorniest, juiciest questions the focused time and space they deserve.
Think of it as a power shot of clear thinking. I will serve as your thought partner as we walk together through the challenge that you bring to our intensive session. I will check your assumptions, help you clarify your thinking, and help you find a way forward. Over the course of our time together, you will make real progress and may even have a breakthrough or two!
Here's how it works:
You schedule a half-day that you can devote to your question. Clear your calendar and book the conference room (or the dining room, or your train ticket up the Hudson River - more on that later).
2 weeks before your intensive, I’ll send you a pre-work packet to help you get crystal clear on what it is you need to accomplish during our session.
On the day of your Breakthrough Coaching Intensive, here is our agenda:
9:30 - 9:40 Opening and Intention-Setting
We’ll start the day by setting intentions for our time together.
9:40 - 10:30 Coaching Session
In your first coaching session we’ll dive in deep to your challenge, uncover your assumptions, and brainstorm possible ways forward.
10:30 - 11:15 Solo / Focused Working Session
We’ll give you an assignment to help you work through your challenge something to write about, think about, draw about or envision. You’ll spend a focused 45 minutes on this task and then we’ll regroup.
11:15 - 12:00 Coaching Session
We’ll go over your work from your solo session and map out your next moves.
12:00 - 12:15 Action Steps and Closing
You’ll leave with a clear action plan and we’ll close the day honoring the focus you showed in tackling your animating question head-on.
2 weeks after your intensive, we’ll have a 30 minute check-in on your progress toward your goals.
Location: Your Breakthrough Coaching Intensive can happen over video from your favorite location anywhere in the world OR you can come to Beacon, NY in the scenic Hudson Valley and we'll meet in person. (Beacon, NY option may include coffee, pastries, and walks by the Hudson River, if desired).
