Hi Christelle,


And now let’s get a little more personal…

Thinking you’ve already received a newsletter with that title?

Well, that’d be because, just a few weeks ago, it was International Chocolate day…

But this week, it’s about…

International Coffee Day – which was on October 1st

What comes up to your mind when you think of coffee?

For me, it brings memory of enjoying a nice cappuccino, sitting down in a peaceful place, in a comfortable chair… and relaxing while letting my thoughts travel through my mind – which is an excellent way to get news ideas, or to figure out how to put several ideas together to create something bigger…

But it also makes me think of quicker alternatives – such as the “instant” version, that I’ll drink while doing something else (often some type of work related tasks)… Of course, the “instant” version doesn’t bring the same results… but it still brings some results: a break, standing up and walking, an increase of energy…

Which brings a metaphor to mind:

  • The nice cappuccino in a peaceful place could represent a one on one coaching session, when the client had the time to think about the conversation to come, to clear their mind of all the ongoing stuff, to shut down all distractions… to be fully prepared and present to the conversation… and then to be able (have the time and energy?) to take action…
  • The “instant” version could an “instant coaching-infused conversation”, still providing the key benefits of coaching (it’s all about you, but you’re not on your own and you’re having a “true” 2-way conversation), but in a lighter version… where you leave with a “spark” of inspiration, which adds itself to the other “sparks” you’ve already had… until you have enough “sparks” to ignite a fire (taking action)!

>>> Yes, I’m referring to Partner-based Development Approach I’ve been writing about in my series “Want to Lead Your Life and Career more Intentionally?”:

Empower yourself - starting with holding yourself accountable…

About last week:

  • Did you take the step you had decided to take last week?
  • What else could you have done to make this action even better?

About this week:

  • What’s one other step you can take this week?
  • Are you clear on what’s important (to you) about taking this step?
