What Am I Ready to Learn?

Tom’s Reflection on This Question

This is the most amazing of questions. I increasingly see that I am not ready to learn everything all at once. Just a few days ago I opened a book I had purchased and set aside months before. From the first words, the book spoke to me with such power that I read it multiple times, one after another.

The book was the same book each time and yet it spoke to me differently because I was not the same person. That weekend, I was in a physical and mental space that allowed me to seep myself in it without any resistance. And that feels key. We have all taken courses or read books we felt we “should” rather than asking ourselves: What am I ready to learn?

Rather than pushing through and not learning what we might, my invitation is to pay ever-closer attention to where your energy is taking you.

  • What truly interests me today?
  • What is inviting me in?
  • What do I feel ready to approach?

Programme Overview

I have the privilege of being part of an amazing peer-support group that meets every two weeks with one purpose: “to support our development as coaches!”

And yet, as we grow as coaches, we are also called on to do an incredible amount of inner work. Our mission has thus evolved to be: “to support each other as humans and as friends!”

The accompanying content was developed to support this process and has served as inspiration. The hope is that this content may inspire other coaches to set up their own peer-support groups or that it may serve in some other fashion. It is not intended to be the last word on anything!
