Encore coaching is not necessarily linear. It demands patience, but is also enlivening, creative, and activity-based.
You will begin by evaluating your journey thus far, reading the events of your life like a good novel. What are the themes and motifs? Who were the heroes and villains? What key values, needs, and interests come up again and again? This work will build the foundation for what’s next.
Then, you will experiment. You will identify and test multiple identities and potential paths, all the while paying attention to your distinctive interests and what they have to teach you:
- Collectors may spend time at the Art Institute pondering what their love for art reveals about their purpose.
- Athletes may debrief their big race to see what it reveals about their drive.
- Those trying to define the “good life” may read a classic novel for illumination.
The goal of these activities is to generate valuable insights to guide you into what’s next.
