Generating Endless Possibilities

With Andrew Jenkins

Live training Accelerator Day 4 with Andrew Jenkins

A coach will often hear from a client that options for the way forward are very limited. People can feel stuck in position, as if no improvement is possible. It is the coach’s role to get the client into a different frame of mind, and thinking laterally about what the options for progress might be. During the “Generating Endless Possibilities” day you will consider ways of generating new possibilities with your client so that they never need feel stuck again!

The idea of breaking options down into manageable chunks is a great place to start. You will learn other ways to get the client thinking differently and more creatively about the potential ways to progress. What challenges do they face? What barriers of thought and behaviour are in the way? We all have bad habits and you will be taught a brilliant quick-fix tool with which you can break them.

And many of us have set patterns of thought and action, that don’t get us where we want but which we find ourselves experiencing time and again. During this training day you will learn to experience your thoughts in a totally different way. Is your client in a situation where a particular issue triggers a pattern of anger, sadness, stress or helplessness? It is possible to break out of that pattern and increase the harmony in your life.

By learning to think differently about the situation, by refusing to slip into damaging and restrictive patterns, you can overcome all kinds of challenges and blocks. This is incredibly useful when working with a client with a specific mental block that is stopping them getting to the desired goal – a writer with writer’s block being a good example!

Just follow these simple steps using Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Walking along the seafront with my partner Sara one recent Saturday morning was wonderful: the warmth of the sun on my face, the salty sea air smell, the smiles on other people’s faces, the shouts and laughter of excited children – my senses were almost overwhelmed. The time I had spent on the sea front acted as an ‘anchor’ for the wonderful experience which immediately followed it.
