Comfort AND Courage You Can’t Have Both … or Can You?

Please join us at our June 14th workshop in Victoria with Laurie Hillis!

Comfort AND Courage You Can’t Have Both … or Can You?

Polarities have been a part of our lives for years (think Ying and Yang, Extraversion AND Introversion, Work AND Play, Continuing AND Change) and they are often misunderstood as problems to be solved.

What are polarities? They are interdependent pairs of variables, they are energy systems, in short, they are the “AND” we live within daily. Also known as paradoxes, wicked problems, opposite strengths, or dichotomies, polarity thinking offers coaches and leaders a possibility approach through expanded thinking.

In this evening session we will explore the polarity of Comfort AND Courage – one that coaches and leaders may wrestle with daily. How to step into courage without giving up comfort. You’ll have an opportunity to build your own Polarity Map and to apply this process to those you support, after the session.

Come prepared to expand your thinking and to coach someone with their map development as well.
