I was going to write some spiel about my coaching process, but my client, Markus, has done the work for me:
1. Your ability to hold a space for your clients. I've found that you're able to create a space in the coaching where any facet of the human voice can find expression. No matter how ugly or wild or beautiful or majestic or disturbing it may be. It's all accepted. I've found that people are so afraid to feel what they feel and show people how they feel for fear of abandonment. The orphan voice wants to be heard and seen and find a parent in us. Often we have no space to let this flood forth, it's kept inside, hidden and secret. But that's where our power is! After creating this type of space with you, I've begun to create it with other people in my life. I see in them an enormous want for this space; a dire desire. Then I watch as the voices pour forth and afterward their power settles in like silt around tires and holds them there in the grandeur of their innermost nature and majesty.
2. Your focus and presence within that space.
I feel that you listen and watch with the eyes of a Hawk and the ears of a Bat. You're a Hawkbat.
3. Your willingness to live.
You embody in your life the values and principles we discuss in coaching. This imbues you with a legitimacy and an ability to connect with the client on a personal level.
This fosters trust in your guidance as a coach, and makes me more willing to take risks with you; relaxed in your leadership, I am able to follow you unto the dark planes and meet what eyes have gazed on me from outside the light of the flame.
4. Your communication skills.
I am consistently baffled by the way you communicate. In your hands; simple communication becomes an Art. The deepest knowledge I've taken from coaching with you is in emulating your style of communicating. You've shown me that excellent communication is a rare super power and that when employed in service of our highest truth, no thing can stand before it and not tremble and deny its sole wanting: to march on the dream and give the great gift and be conquered and conquer in love.
After communicating all this, I've found that I've been using you as a model more and more in my life. And that this model of being and moving is wholeheartedly embraced by the planet and the people. Thanks for being you!
