Healing The Divide in Times of Uncertainty

Situations like the one we are now living through are why the acronym VUCA was created.  No doubt, we are living in Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous times.  And when the VUCA hits the fan, we at Learning in Action want to be in it with you, supporting you through it.

Heal The Divide Mission

Learning in Action is committed to healing the divide within and between people. Healing the divide within and between is the work that connects the world.  Healing our dividedness from our essence will heal the dividedness between us. We dream of a world in which when one of us hurts, we all feel it.  And we run to the aid of the other just as we would to our own.  We envision a world in which there is a realization that we are separate and connected and ONE. 

Finding Ourselves and Our Way Forward

In talking with practitioners in our communities, we recognized that what many of us long for is a safe space to talk openly about our experiences, hopes and fears, and needs. Alison Whitmire and David Drake have come together to create a space to explore who we need to be to meet our clients and the world where it is.

In this program, you will be invited to reflect on questions like:

  • How did the world change during the pandemic?
  • How have I changed since the pandemic began? Who am I now?
  • How recovered do I really feel? How fully have I processed my experience?
  • Do I have what it takes to meet my clients where they are now?
  • What do I need in my inner world to respond to what the outer world is asking of me?

Let's connect and explore our experience together...

Together at Home is a free, monthly, one-hour live, virtual event sponsored by the Institute of Coaching for coaches with the intention to connect with each other, connect with ourselves and explore our experience... together. As coaches we focus on supporting our clients and Together at Home is intended to provide that same support to you as a coach.

Register to join us every 2nd Friday of the month at 12 pm ET.

The WE-Q Profile: A Map to Better Relationships

Leverage the impact of your coaching by going deeper faster with the only WE-Q assessment that doesn't rely on self-reporting.

The WE-Q Profile is the only simulation-based emotional and relational intelligence instrument that tracks and captures our internal experience under stress, revealing what we can’t see about ourselves and how our reactions influence how we relate to others.

  • It's about relationships
  • The only non-self-reporting emotional and relational intelligence Instrument
  • It's about creating more choice

Take your coaching deeper so you can get meaningful results with your clients in a fraction of the typical time...

Are you interested in going deeper faster with clients and helping them break through in weeks instead of months?

The WE-Q Practitioner Certification Training program is strategically designed to help you develop and refine your understanding of the internal world of your clients and how you see it through the clarifying lens of the WE-Q Profile.

Learn how to…

  • Shorten the time it takes to go deep, below the surface, into substantive issues with your clients.
  • Help your clients see themselves more clearly and allow them to feel seen and recognized.
  • See the hidden patterns that are driving your client’s derailing behavior and connect your clients’ narratives with how they are relating to themselves, others and the world.
  • and more...
