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. 

Conquer YOUR Coaching Blindspots

Conquer YOUR Coaching Blindspots is an immersive workshop intended to help you see what you can’t see about yourself – your blindspots. We are our own first client and our blindspots can be the key that unlocks our clients’ progress. In this workshop, you'll take a deep dive into your hidden patterns and increase your capacity to see your blindspots, and develop strategies for integrating them.

Throughout the course of 4 live sessions, you'll receive:

  • A 1:1 coaching session with a Master Practitioner
  • A learning partner to ask questions and share insights
  • Insights and real-time feedback on your personal blindspots
  • The full EQ Profile Experience to reveal things you don't know and can't see about yourself
  • and more!

Heal The Divide Podinar Series

What's a podinar? It's an interview-style podcast and interactive webinar in one (we made it up 😊)!

Our Heal The Divide podinar series is a free, monthly, live interactive virtual learning intended to facilitate and accelerate transformative change in the world. We do that by introducing a community of change agents to thought leaders, providing opportunities for professional development, and creating experiences that inspire, inform and build community.

4 Things They Don’t Teach You in Coaching School

Do you know the book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten? It’s a marvelous book written by a Seattle-area author, Robert Fulghum. I wish I could write the same book about coaching school: All I Really Need to Know About Coaching I Learned in Coaching School. However, after 15 plus years of coaching, I’m realizing how much I didn’t learn about coaching in either of the two certified coaching programs I completed.

While I really could write a whole book about what I didn’t learn about coaching in school, I’m focusing this article on four key insights I’ve gained from thousands of coaching hours, much of which has felt like trial and error. I’m hoping these four key concepts that most coaching schools don’t emphasize will help make your learning curve steeper than mine was!


A Coach’s Guide to Common Client Blindspots

As coaches, we are always creating awareness in our clients. While all the ICF Core Competencies are important, creating awareness is perhaps the most central competency to coaching. 

Our clients hire us because they want something to change, about themselves, their lives, their careers, their leadership, and/or their relationships. If they could change it themselves, they would. And often our clients can’t change what they are wanting to change because they can’t see what’s getting in their way.  

Oftentimes, what's in their way — the obstacle lying between where, how, and who they are and where, how, and who they want to be — is some aspect of themselves.
