Hi. I’m Jamie Smart. Welcome to the podcast. This episode is a coaching demonstration I did at one of my recent “Coaching Impact Accelerator” workshops. The Coaching Impact Accelerators are taster sessions for people who are seriously considering joining one of my larger programmes to have an experience of what it’s like to work with me. The sessions include a variety of elements, including a coaching demo with one of the participants.
The demo you’re about to hear was with Caroline Delaney, a Mental Health and Wellbeing Educator who wanted to get clarity on purpose and direction in her work life. And as you’ll hear, what started out seeming like it was about “practical stuff” turned out to be about something much deeper that affects many coaches and changeworkers; the question about whether or not they’re good enough. It turns out that the “Am I good enough?” question typically includes a confusion of two categories: skill-level and identity-level.
After the session, Caroline wrote to me about it, saying, “it opened what I can only visually describe as a parting of the seas (like in the moses films lol) to drop in at a deepest level YOU ARE ENOUGH. That’s what dropped in and I’m sitting with it so just wanted to share that and say thank you… I can’t for the life of me remember the metaphor you used but that space allowed for the hearing of those words to land 🙏 that’s the first I’ve experienced the valuing to take true meaning…”
The following day, Caroline messaged me again, saying, “Still sitting in the feeling of YOU ARE ENOUGH with different things bubbling up.. I cant put words on it but its a beautiful feeling and no doubt more to unfold 💚 thank you again.”
Just before we get to that, here’s a quick question: Do you want to sit in / pick my brains while I coach a client on a long-term package?
Here’s what’s happening: I’ve enrolled a client on a 5-figure, long-term coaching package with a difference…
The client has agreed to let a group of coaches and therapists watch, then have me unpack the sessions and answer questions about them.
It kicks off with a 3-day intensive from 28-30 July, and there’s an early booking price if you register by this Friday, July 21st. Go to JamieSmart.com/cpu to book your place on the 1:1 Coaching Package Unpacked, that’s JamieSmart.com/cpu – Charlie, Papa, Uniform – cpu.
So now to the episode.
