Many school systems drill students into constantly striving for perfection.
What would it feel like to embrace Winnicott’s concept of good enough and give ourselves permission not to be perfect (indeed to treat perfection as an illusion) and to tell ourselves that it is ok to be good enough?
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!
