We engage clients in a three-part process to cultivate a Coaching Mindset.

Our Ontological Model cultivates conditions to awaken the nature of being, integrate an expanded mindset with practices, and embody continual learning, unlearning, and inquiry.

AWAKEN.

Through an ontological inquiry (into the nature of what it is to be human), we venture beyond the conceptual to experience our whole being as body, mind, and language. An ontological inquiry increases our self-awareness to cultivate insight and expand potential.

INTEGRATE.

Through an integral approach, we engage a transition that evolves our mindset beyond past frames of reference. We identify and support new structures and practices that help us become aware of outmoded perceptions, which encourage unlearning.

EMBODY.

Engaging in a life of contemplative practice supports continual learning and unlearning, increased levels of awareness, and intentional action. An embodied practice grounds us in a sustained commitment to maintaining growth.

DISCLOSE RESULTS
A + B + C = SHIFT BEING: (observe and listen) create new openings for action
B + C = CHANGE ACTION: to improve current results

Our team has undergone years of rigorous inquiry and practice from a foundation of philosophical study, systems thinking, leadership mastery, and contemplative practices.

WHAT IS OUR EXPERTISE?

Our philosophical grounding involves differentiating being of being human, as foundational to shaping action and knowing:

  • Ground: WHO we are as a context for commitment — the GROUND of being.
  • Fruition: WHY we engage as a context for possibility — the FRUITION of being.
  • Then Path: HOW/WHAT we engage as the process/content — the PATHWAY.

Our Model and Methodology, from our 12 PRACTICES supports experienced coaches, educators and learning professionals, and executives and entrepreneurs to cultivate human potential. Our expertise includes these fields of study, knowledge, and development methods and tools:

“We do not see the world as it is, we see it as we are.”
