Lori coaching Silas

This is a series of real coaching sessions with the same client over a period of months. We offer these so coaches can see coaching skills in action. You can see how a master coach deepens learning in each session and strings together learning over the series of sessions.

Uncovering values

Silas looks at inspiring situations that bring him fulfilment and this leads to clarifying his top values

There are 12 more videos in this series with Lori coaching Silas.

Finalise values and bring them to life through a coaching topic

In this session Silas is able to bring some lightness and inspiration to his primary topic of building a home studio.

Overwhelm and working with internal voices

After checking in on last week’s accountability, Silas brings the topic of overwhelm and staying focused. Lori asks him to dive into the overwhelm to experience it which leads to critical internal voices. She normalises and helps Silas free himself from them by using embodiment and exploring emotions.

Summer holiday recap, values and future visioning based on a visualisation

Recap Silas’ summer holiday and explore the natural connection to his values. Second, a quick but important check in on voices from last session and how he used them to keep himself on track. Next, Silas presents his planned topic for the session where he wanted to create a vision for his future. Lori creates an impromptu visualisation using feelings, intuition and metaphors while creating in the moment.  They co-create how to build the vision.

Working with strong emotion using introspection and embodiment

Silas is dealing without a lot of hard news including suicide of a friend, stresses from lockdown, his mum’s decline while she’s in a care home and extreme uncertainty in his profession. The exploration goes from sadness to pain, anger, then empowerment and passion about a clearer way forward.

In our blog you will find writings on leadership development, team development and coaching. Each post is grounded in neuroscience, and will give you tips, tools and food for thought, to help you manage the issues that arise in your organisations and in our world these days.

Setting goals and intentions about the recording studio

Check in on the previous session of processing emotions and how they settled. Report in on progress (and fun) about audio recording work and the shift in attitude about this work. The main topic is to gather the main themes of coaching and set stretch goals and specific plans for accomplishing those.

Building resilience using neuroscience concepts

Check in on goals from last time. Then Silas faces the difficultly and challenges of being an actor in the reality of theatres being closed and extreme competition for roles.

Lori introduces some information about neurotransmitters including dopamine and serotonin and the loss of dopamine and the pain of disappointment. Silas takes the concepts and figures out how he can create resilience and more contentment for himself. Silas recognises that the calm of serotonin is his preferred way to live rather than the thrill of dopamine.

Lori and Silas – Be SAFE and Certain:

Silas is still struggling with a range of difficult circumstances. He reports in on how he has learned to maintain serotonin levels and emotional stability by walking in the forest.
Lori offers the neuroscience-based Be SAFE & Certain model (Belonging, Status, Autonomy, Fairness, Expectations, Certainty) to help Silas explore stressors and sources of emotional pain. This leads to several important realisations and more self-acceptance.
There is more education in this session than others. Lori offers a concept then Silas explores and takes the time to learn more about himself, recognising different emotional dynamics going on within himself.
