"What does it mean to me to belong? How do I know on a cellular level that I belong in certain spaces and places? And that I don't belong in other spaces? What I've come to is it's being able to see myself in the other people: it's being able to see bits and pieces of my own story, my own journey, my own struggles, my own wins, my own hardships, my…
 
"Every painter has got the same colors at their disposal. But the way they blend the colors to create their own art makes them unique. And the same is for the master coach. We all have the same competencies at our disposal, but how we blend them to be with our clients and to work with our clients makes unique art of coaching." — Giuseppe Totino…
 
"That was the reason that I started on my own personal journey: to find that thing that was missing, that made me feel unhappy about my life. And I really feel a level of true, soul-filling joy about my life and who I am these days, so much self-acceptance and peace about who I am, how I commit my time, who and what I say yes to, who and what I say…
 
"I often say, 'This flag is standing up and we each have our hands on it. And we're gonna hold this thing. You tell me this is what you want. We're holding it. And when you let go of it — because you say you're tired or don't necessarily want it or you can't do it — I'll be standing here with this flag until you pry my cold dead hands off of it. An…
 
"It's almost a physical stance. When I'm team coaching, I am very much more aware of my posture. And I'm aware of my breathing. And it's open body language, wide-angled empathy, listening to all the voices, and even those voices that are not in the room. And as a coach, even if we know the answers or want to fix, knowing that to enable others to di…
 
“Once we can see that we are not this enduring, consistent, perfect self that we've constructed ourselves to be—that we see all the ways in which we don't show up aligned with our intentions or who we want to be in the world—we start to have compassion for other people and their challenges in doing so. Once we see our complexity, we can see others’…
 
"The linear approaches are genuinely slow and methodical. And we've missed our window for that. We now need lots and lots of experiments that need unpredictable results, hopefully in the positive direction. And that's going to get us out of this next huge global challenge." — Patrice Laslett Patrice Laslett works as a partner at Cultivating Leaders…
 
"I always use English in professional life and in coaching. Yet it's not my native language. And there is a silver lining to it. When I'm mentor coaching this is what I share with those who are not coaching in their first language. 'You don't know how lucky you are.' And they pause because they criticize themselves. I say, 'You can simplify your qu…
 
"More than my being professional, what matters actually to me is my being humane. The way I defined myself as a coach itself changed. And if I could not be open to that, I would have been in a serious conflict and in constant internal tension, to just allow myself to accept in the moment that this is how the world is right now. So let's look at pro…
 
"I have this philosophy of, 'You take me at face value; I'll meet you and honor you as you are.' In the wine department it's the same: 'Don't look at the label or shiny objects and all that. Whatever you have in the glass, see what is there.' What kind of story is this wine telling you? The client: What is the client telling you? Or what is the cli…
 
"There's an air of excitement about not knowing. I see myself as an adventurer. So you and your client set off on this journey together. Your client's in the driving seat, you're maybe in the passenger seat, but you're going on this journey together. And both of you have a rough idea — you kind of know where the goal might be or where the client wa…
 
"One of the great feelings about intimacy is that it keeps unraveling itself. It keeps exposing itself. It keeps flowering anew. You keep feeling like you're discovering an unknown other for the first time, because what you're discovering is new for you." — William Torbert William Torbert's oeuvre of Collaborative Developmental Action Inquiry has b…
 
"There is some really good coaching happening without even seeing the coach or knowing what the coach's name is. I've been doing some digital debrief . . . and it's my colleague Nick's picture up there, it's not even me. They don't even know who I am. And in some ways, it's kind of fun because I've got my invisibility cape on but in another way I c…
 
"It's very important to just take those few minutes to hold that coffee cup, to think of that good memory, to pull out an old photo, listen to one song that you absolutely love. But that's the stuff, just those little tidbits, because the rest of it is not joyful. It's not." — Jodi Sleeper-Triplett Jodi Sleeper-Triplett is a Master Certified Coach,…
 
"You create most growth when you act as a DJ. If you're a DJ and you have an audience and not a lot of energy in the room — people are a bit bored — if you start your really high-energy tune you will not get them to move, because they will just find it disturbing. You need to pick up the people at the pace where they are. You fade in a new pace and…
 
"We don't know what someone's gonna tell us. We don't know what the future holds. We don't know what we're ignorant to. You don't know what you don't know! But we have the willingness to evolve, grow and continue learning. And that's the beauty of this profession. There is that ever-evolving nature to it, where we're constantly learning about ourse…
 
"You don't have to know all the perfect, powerful questions if you approach that individual with genuine curiosity and genuine compassion. Because everyone has a story. And when you genuinely want to hear 'what is reality from their vantage point?' then that really is the foundation to creating trust. And being able to create that shared vision of …
 
"I get myself into this discipline of slowing down. When I started to talk slower — just be with people, instead of having to do something — even if we didn't say much, that whole being there has a new dimension. It's made me realize the importance of presence, the importance of just going with a breathable space, where the breathing is deep and fu…
 
"Be very appreciative of what is different in your thinking that has value, because we need the outsiders. Outsiders may bring the value that the insiders don't see. It's invisible. My work sometimes is to make visible what is right under people's noses. And they go, 'Are you kidding? I didn't see it.' I go, 'I know. Now what? Now that you see it, …
 
"The symbolic world is like language. We start more to feel the world. For example, the painting: When we visit an exhibition, mostly we see, 'This is this painter; how old it is; how much does it cost?' We judge in our outside world with facts and figures. And if we go to an exhibition and ask, 'How does it affect me, this painting? How I feel wit…
 
"I'm 50 and the thought of leaving my job and a secure income brings up these deep waves of insecurity that were probably seeds planted when I was four or five years old, living on bologna sandwiches, with two unemployed parents. That's the legacy all of us have, as human beings. That's how we're built. These seeds get planted and we have to do the…
 
"Vulnerability: Most of the people would understand it as a type of weakness, especially in the corporate world; while you have a completely different connection to it when you dive into the coaching field, where you can see vulnerability as a main source of power that will allow you more resilience as you go because you are able to accept what's g…
 
"I was feeling sorry for myself one day and my dear, strong, tough cellmate slams me against the wall and says, 'You have no idea who you are. Oh, you are so strong, you are so smart, you care about people so much, there's so much you can do that we can't do. You need to get all that here so you can get out there and do something.' And she was righ…
 
"When I think about the people that have come back to me or have developed a relationship with me, it usually is because they said they felt seen and heard. The people that I am thinking about most when I say that are people who don't look like me. They say to me, 'You saw me.' The emotion is about people not experiencing that in their lifetime." —…
 
"An experiment I love to do to is: I just smile at people. And the reactions you get when you smile at strangers are hilarious. Like, maybe one in ten people will just smile back. The rest look behind them. They're like, 'Are you smiling at somebody else?' They look really uncomfortable. They look away. They don't know what to do — just somebody sm…
