Launch: Coaching Calls FAQ

What’s the schedule for the group coaching calls? Will I get reminders? Calls are Mondays and Thursdays, at noon, 3:00 p.m. or 8:00 p.m. Eastern. I will remind you about upcoming calls at the bottom of the daily emails. In addition, you will get an “imminent” message with the Zoom link 30 minutes before. You can also find the upcoming calls

Are the calls recorded? Yes, all of the calls are recorded. They are put on the password protected Launch page  within 24 hours. In addition, you will receive a “Recording Available” message with a direct link to the recording, and a list of topics discussed during the call.

Why aren’t the group coaching calls on the same calendar as the Thinking Lab classes? It is simpler to have you import two calendars. The Thinking Lab calendar can be imported on this page.

What’s the format of the group coaching calls? Typically we check in quickly with everyone “in the room.” During check-ins, I find out who wants coaching in the “second round,” then I budget the remaining time to help with everyone. Sometimes, to save time, I ask participants to check in using the chat feature and/or raise their electronic hands if they want coaching.

Do I need to attend the whole hour? If you want coaching or questions answered, I recommend you set aside the full hour. First, you will learn from other people’s issues. Second, you’ll find everyone else’s work inspiring. Third, I will prioritize answering questions for those who check in at the beginning. There may not be time for you to check in or ask your question if you join partway through.

What if I can’t make a coaching call? You can send in questions by email 24 hours in advance. All of the coaching sessions are recorded. I include a list of topics discussed with the recording.

What if I don’t want to discuss my issues in front of the group? You can email in a question. I promise a short response. Or I can discuss the issue anonymously on the next coaching call. Or you can sign up for one-on-one coaching with Lin Zinser. She offers a free 20-minute consult if you are considering that. I encourage you to read that page so you know who she is, as she often puts in her two cents on the coaching calls and helps manage the sessions on Thinking Days.

Who runs the coaching calls? I run 80-90% of them. When I am not available, Lin Zinser runs them.

The Thinking Day sessions and the coaching calls are high energy, inspiring events.

I look forward to seeing you on the calls! It’s going to be a great eight weeks working together.

Three Ways Self-Direction Contributes to Happiness
Tuesday, October 11, 2022
3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern, plus 15 minute Q&A

Self-Direction Theory and Practice #10 will include:
– How to be happy about the past, present, and future.
– Healing damage from earned and unearned guilt.
– How self-direction immediately improves your quality of life.

Please bring an example to class of the last time you needed to course correct on a project, in part because it took too long, e.g.
– you were tempted to pressure yourself to “just do it”
– you were floundering
– you could not get into the “flow”
