Today’s takeaway from Free Coffeeshop Group Coaching – Beijing, China – 19 September 2019 is:
“Minds are like parachutes. They only function when open.” –Thomas Dewar
Being stuck is usually about repeatedly running a single story or the same version of a story over and over again. Perspectives are a powerful coaching tool used to break this repeating cycle. Knowing that this is helpful and doing it are two different things. Applying new perspectives can be more difficult, especially alone. These Coffeeshop Coaching groups amaze me with the unique perspectives that surface. Culture and language differences become a catalyst rather than a barrier for new, creative, and diverse perspectives!
How can I look at my situation in a new perspective; backward, upside-down, inside-out, and opening the parachute of my mind?
