In April 2020 I started giving away my time.
We were all getting used to Corona and its impact on society, many people were deeply confused, and I thought it would be a simple way of helping out.
What it comes down to is that people can book me for thirty minutes for whatever reason (I don’t mind), and I try to be available throughout the week.
Of course there is a fair amount of opportunism involved, but probably not in the way you’d think.
I have never considered this to be a good way to get clients (or ‘to create’ clients, like people use to say in coaching circles), and it is simply not my intention.
I just offer these half hours (most of the conversations will last a bit longer by the way) because many people believe they are way more lost than they are, and when you succeed in making that tangible for them, it makes all the difference in the world.
Half an hour can go a long way.
There’s another reason I offer my time and attention, and that is the simple fact that it is my ambition to become the best coach in the world, and this can’t be done without endless practice.
I’ve probably done a couple of hundred of these short sessions, and they have made a tremendous impact on my grounding and confidence.
Coaching is about coaching.
It’s about playing the game and finding your ‘style’.
It’s about elation and disappointment, about crappy sessions and mind blowing conversations, about learning to see through your judgements and opinions, to learn to be passionately neutral, universally caring, and unattached yet deeply connected.
My free sessions have given me priceless experiences.
A win-win for the universe.
