Quotes to Ponder

“This work we are doing will have an impact not just here, but throughout the world, and to feel like we as coaches are playing a part in bringing kindness and empathy, and awareness of emotion to different parts of the world - it is real. It’s not theoretical.” - John (1:22)

“I think a lot of people are surprised at the coaching process because the problem [clients] usually come with is an opening, a beginning point, to explore other things that might be happening or coming up in the client’s life.” - John (3:30)

“Young people have been conditioned to answer adults with “I don’t know” because it keeps them safe.” - John (7:34)

“Are we looking at things through our own lens or perspective? What is deep for me is not the same level of depth for other people.” - Raj (14:14) 

“I think there can be a fatigue sometimes that sets in for people who aren’t used to this level [of depth work], or it feels unknown or feels unsettled with things coming up that they aren’t used to.” - John (14:40)

“Curiosity shows care.” - John (24:06)

“What are the reasons for me bringing myself [into a coaching session]? Is it really useful, or is it something I need for me, and I’ve pulled out of curiosity for the client in that moment. I have to hold that mirror up.” - Raj (25:01)
