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. 

The EQ Profile

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

The EQ Profile reveals our habituated, non-conscious patterns. It illuminates what we can’t see about how we see ourselves, others, and the world, our blindspots.

  • It's about relationship
  • The only non-self-reporting EQ Instrument
  • It's about creating more choice

The Neuroscience of WE

The Neuroscience of WE is a self-paced, on-demand exploration of the neuroscience behind our relationships, how we relate, and why.

We truly embody our relationships because of the many ways we are shaped early in life, not just figuratively, but neurobiological.

In this class, you’ll learn:

  • How our brains are neurobiologically shaped in relationship
  • The role our brains play in our relationships
  • How Neuroscience and EQ are related and the interplay between them
  • How to speak easily about the role emotions play in our lives and our relationships

Connected and Separate: Finding Ourselves in Each Other

Connected and Separate is a 6-week live online experience and guided deep dive into yourself. 

We’ll journey through a guided exploration of how we are shaped by our relationships, the essential nature of relationships, how interpersonal conflict arises, the ways in which we defend and protect ourselves, and how we can learn to develop better relationships (with anyone) by understanding ourselves with greater clarity.

Calling Forth Greatness: Who You Are Being, Empowers Your Coaching

“The key to living the life that you love and doing the work that you love is living true to the essence of who you are.” - Fran Fisher

What does it mean to call forth our greatness and live from our essence? And why is it important, particularly as a coach? In this session, Alison Whitmire, President of Learning In Action, is joined by master certified coach, Fran Fisher to explore what it means to call forth your greatness.

5 Ways to Love Your Clients and Do More Transformative Work

Do you love your clients?  Most of us like or love most of our clients.  And most of us have or have had clients that maybe we don’t love so much.  Maybe we like them or maybe we just tolerate them.  And that’s OK, that’s normal. 

And most of us do this work, this work of coaching, the passion path we’ve chosen because we want to do transformative work.  We truly, genuinely want to impact our clients’ lives for the better.  And we do that not by helping them solve the issue de jour, or providing them with tools or frameworks.  We do it by creating and holding the generative space that allows them to bring their shadow into the light. And that truly only happens in the context of a loving container.

So loving our clients, truly genuinely loving our clients at the essence of their being, matters.  And we know this.  

So what keeps us from loving, truly loving our clients?
