Air castles and the beliefs that drive them
Sometimes your group learner is "building air castles." That's when she's not being honest or truthful with herself. My 79 year old mom says that's what my grandmother called it when you make up stories that have no basis in reality. Hilarious, heh?
So, what do you do when your group learner is building air castles?
Very simply, you coach! Building air castles offers a perfect opportunity to laser coach her right there in the midst of the session. Simultaneously, you encourage all of your group learners to create a listening and supportive circle. Your learner has an aha moment and sometimes - no, most of the time - the learners within that supportive circle, have their own very personal and powerful breakthroughs too.
One of the five essential areas for transforming your learner via laser coaching is PERCEPTION. Think of perception as a direct line to your learner's beliefs - the internal place and space from which she operates. It's the place that speaks to how she they feels, how she reacts, how she responds to any situation she encounters.
Laser coaching helps her to know, feel, think and believe differently. It's all about shifting the perception and stop her from building air castles.
