Let's go on a little journey of Transformation Coaching
The Lightning Bolt Moment
From the Transformation Coaching “Player Playbook”…
The Lightning Bolt is a symbol of transformation.
The FLASH of electricity comes out of the sky to shake things up and cause a transformation.
In the mystic symbol of the lightning bolt, it is striking a tower and the people in the tower are tossed out. SET FREE! Out of their isolation and back out into the social world of other people and new possibilities… and new challenges.
Were they held captive by some form of outside control? Or did they put themselves under control to get away from the risks of the world? We don’t know. But either way, the control is gone and now they are free to play – and risk – and GROW – again.
In real life terms this is some kind of event. Often the end of a situation: a job, a relationship, a time in a place, or a state of health… and at the exact same time, the beginning of something… your NEXT Dream.
You may be in a lightning bolt moment in your life and now you are connected to a Transformation Coach. Good!
You are connected to a Transformation Coach and now you are going to co-create your own lightning bolt moment (Yes, we can do that). In real life terms this is some kind of choice. A choice to let go of some status quo in your life and LIVE YOUR NEXT DREAM NOW!
Whichever scenario you are in… it is good!
Sometimes we choose our next Dream.
Sometimes our next Dream chooses us!
From: under control… staying safe
To: set free… into the social world
There is some part you YOU now that needs to be set free… back into the social world for expression, growth, risk and opportunity; so that you can live your next Dream, NOW!
Together we will discover what part of YOU (or parts) is being SET FREE… and ready of not.. the other people of the world are calling for you.
Here is a BIG point about Transformation Coaching: whatever problems you were focused on before the spark… are probably no longer relevant; most likely they are not worth your attention. We leave them behind with the crumbled tower. AND it is likely that the cause of those “problems” was trying to keep some part of your Self or something under control.
On adventure in the social world, we don’t focus on problems. We focus on the peak experiences and pivotal moments of the Dream we are playing.
The Lightning Bolt between the two faces talking represents the transformative power of coaching conversations.
FLASH… a new DREAM!
FLASH… a new possibility
FLASH… a new awareness
FLASH… a revealed desire
FLASH… a new ability
FLASH… a new becoming
FLASH… a new understanding
FLASH… the next DREAM
The Lightning Bolt – the Transformation Coach – is the messenger, the catalyst, the companion, the guide…the FLASH!
The only choice now is to play the new Dream.
Or stay under control.
What are we releasing control of? ...the good stuff.
The Human Nature Superpowers!
The BIG idea of Transformation Coaching is to guide your players to trust and express their Human Nature Superpowers.
This is pretty much the opposite of almost every other major belief system in civilization which are based on the premise that Human Nature is a problem that we need to get under control.
- Get your beliefs under control
- Get your thoughts under control
- Get your behaviors under control
- Get your desires under control
- Get your playfulness under control
Then the self-help gurus of the last 40 years tried to help “FIX” the problems caused by control with more control:
- Get your limiting beliefs under control
- Get your negative thoughts under control
- Get your saboteur under control
- Get your EGO under control
- Get your fears under control
- Get your emotions under control
Our philosophy is based on years of coaching amazing humans!
We can’t fix the problems in our Human Family that were caused by control with more control.
We need to do the opposite!
We need to restore trust and expression of our AWESOME Human Nature!
Unleash the Human Nature Superpowers of Your Players
All of us are born with Human Nature Superpowers and a dream in our hearts to use them for good in the world.
However, as our Human Cultures have become more hierarchical and authoritarian, often our Human Nature Superpowers are driven underground because they are not embraced. Note: this has been going on for a long time!! Every Hero’s Journey story includes a plot line of the adventurer reclaiming their lost powers. And every Hero on a journey has a Guide.
The modern day Hero’s Journey Guide is… The Transformation Coach!
As a CoachVille Transformation Coach you will learn how to guide your players in pursuit of their BIG Dreams in the Social World AND discover, unleash and PRACTICE their Human Nature along the way.
The Transformation Coaching class will get you started on your remarkable life as a Human Journey Guide.
AND… the time is NOW for the Human Family to rise up together, to uplift and uplevel, and co-create a culture of Egalitarian Freedom. This is what Transformation Coaching is all about. Every person you coach creates a ripple effect of freedom into families, communities, companies and one day… countries.
Next… The journey is out of controlled safety into the social world of co-creation.
Let’s explore the model for Social Play…
Social Play Model
Also from the Transformation Coaching “Player Playbook”
Four Moments of Social Play
A BIG difference between playing with a coach and working in isolation is well… a focus on play… specifically Social Play, and practice.
We have a little model to help you shift your mindset from worker to player: Relate, Create, Explore, Experiment. (it has a ring to it!)
Your coach will encourage you to add activities in these four areas into your plan each week; this will guide you toward the experiences you desire, the impact you desire and personal transformation AT THE SAME TIME!.
Here is an important insight to consider: Anything that you cannot control but you can influence is an opportunity to play and play better with a coach!
So, I want you to wonder… to dream… of what you would do if you were able to increase your positive connection in the social world around you.
These are the four types of activities: Moments of Social Play.
- A play-able moment is a coach-able moment that you can improve through practice.
- Social play means that it involves co-creating the experience with one or more other people rather than completing a task in isolation as was the norm in the Industrial Culture of Control.
And here is another BIG point: As you unleash your Human Nature Superpowers, you naturally get better and better at Social Play.
The BIG Picture…
Playing life with a Transformation Coach means you will practice pivotal moments of social play that lead to influence, inspiration, visibility and change!
You will experience this fully throughout this coaching engagement and you just might be inspired to take a “coach and play” approach to many of your future pursuits in life! I HOPE SO!!!
Now you might be thinking: “Yes, the social play actions and results are exactly what I want! The Power of Playfulness sounds amazing.
“But when I think about it:
- Asking for what I want or need is pretty hard for me.
- Sharing what I create can be a real struggle.
- I know I need to “get out there” and be more visible, but it’s not easy.
- Trying new things often feels too risky so I stick with what I always do.”
Somehow, we have all become fearful of our playfulness and social play actions in the Industrial Culture.
This is a BIG reason why Transformation Coaching was invented!!
Next… The Human Journey with a Coach Model…
Transformation Coaching Model
Again… from the Player Playbook…
Transformation Coaching Model
Here are a few things to notice.
The basic flow of a Transformation Coaching session is:
Plan – Practice – Grow.
The basic flow for playing in the world for a transformational life:
Plan – PLAY – Grow (And Celebrate!)
The difference is in the coaching session we do a unique form of play called practice. This is when you play in a safe space with the intention of getting better at something.
What we are practicing together and playing in the world is Social Play.
The RACECAR part is an acronym:
R= Result (eg. The Influence of Relate for Influence)
A=Action (eg. The Relate of Relate for Influence)
C=Challenge (eg. Anything that makes the intended result NOT happen)
E=Evaluate (eg. Looking back on the experience for growth opportunities)
The other important element to this model is the circle with the yin/yang symbol and observation ~ co-creation. Your coach is observing you, sharing what they see and then using that knowledge to co-create practice experiences with you.
Meanwhile, you are observing your coach and using what you learn to become a more capable co-creator of practice experiences.
This is the truly remarkable path of transformation that is designed into our Human Nature! When we all use our Human Nature for good… for each other… very good things happen! AWWW YEAH!
Next… an example of a Technique ONEsheet…
Pivotal Moment Technique
The Pivotal Moment Technique
This is one of our transformation coach students favorite Transformation Techniques!
This is how we guide each other to transform:
The reality is that we have all been fully indoctrinated into the Industrial Culture of Control. So we believe that we SHOULD be able to control everything. This, of course, is nonsense; there is very little in life that we can control. So, most of us are frustrated a lot of the time. (or worse feeling inadequate, apathetic, anxious or even depressed)
With this technique we can guide the transformation from feeling frustrated by an experience in life, to feeling energized to c0-create with life and other people.
In the technique we use imagination, guided visualization, body experiencing, giving voice to non-conscious beliefs and fears and dream power language. Whoa!!!!
YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS!!!
This is just one example of a technique. You will practice 5 others!
Next… let’s have a quick look at a Coaching Session Playsheet.
These are used to take notes during each session.
Transformation Coaching Notes Playsheet
From the Player Playbook:
This is an example of what you will experience in each dynamic session!
A few notes to prepare for Session #4 with your coach…
1) WARM UP and Dream Sharing
Just like we did in the last session. Every time you speak your dream out loud with your coach it gains energy.
Your coach will ask you to share a celebration from playing for your Dream. Sharing celebrations builds trust… vital to Transformation Coach.
3) GROW (From Play)
Insights – something new that you experienced. Something you noticed about your Self, your Dream or a situation.
Actions and Results – Social Play
Challenges – What got in the way of the action or the result? What is the growth opportunity?
The key is to be playful in how you talk about these experiences. Embrace the power of co-creative conversation to expand your possibilities!
4) Practice PLAN
You will practice a Social Play situation where you are experiencing resistance using the Pivotal Moment Technique.
The Pivotal Moment
If you have clarity on the moment you want to explore, just tell your coach what it is. OR you and your coach can choose a moment based on the insights and challenges from the week before.
When you get into the Pivotal Moment technique your coach will ask you to close your eyes. It is much easier to access your imagination this way. When you open your eyes, fill in the key words on the sheet for thoughts, body sensations and “It’s not safe for me to”. This is also known as the “Body Belief”.
Human Nature Superpower Potential
Sometimes when exploring a moment of resistance, it will reveal a superpower or playfulness. You will get a picture of what you were expressing – or trying to express – when some trouble happened. Whatever you were doing will probably reveal one of your Human Nature Superpowers. If it doesn’t pop up when you are exploring the moment with your coach, it might pop up later.
This is where you put your heart’s desire into a power phrase to guide your imagination.
This is becoming the next version of you… and the next version and the next version. It is developing new abilities or stepping into new beliefs. Every BIG Dream we pursue in life sparks growth within us… this is why we all have BIG dreams throughout our lives.
- What did you learn about yourself?
- What did you learn about your Dream?
7) PLAY PLAN
You and your coach will hone in on a two things at the end of each session.
A) Set your intention for Transformation for the week. A way you intend to expand or express something new or become the next version of YOU
FROM: A (a word or phrase)
TO: B (a word or phrase)
Look at what you explored in the session. Think about your situation. Add in what you plan to do. And sum it up in a phrase from A to B.
B) Share a few social actions that will include or engage others as you play for your Dream this week.
Challenges… start seeking; Pivotal Moments… keep noticing;!
Remember… people who aim to play BIG… they go beyond embracing challenges… they LOOK for them.
Remember to LOOK for your pivotal moments: moments when you avoid or delay a social action or notice that you are avoiding a social risk. It will open up growth opportunities that you can explore with your coach to find more clues on the treasure map.
Have an awesome session with your Coach!
Coach, with a little practice you will be able to co-create amazing coaching sessions with your players with just these notes sheets in front of you. And your player will have the sheet in front of them. And you BOTH will have a clear record of each session to look back on. When your players SEE their progress… they want more coaching. YES!!!
Fun… co-creative… transformation… AND organized!!! at the same time!
