Conventional coaching and learning models focus on improving performance and results by employing new skill sets and techniques.
At Awesome Journey, we use the ontological coaching model which focuses on developing thinking that shapes our listening, speaking, learning and action. We focus on expanding one’s mindset or worldview, to create capacity for integrating different skill sets.
Our model supports leaders in generating unpredictable results by asking a fundamental question: What is it that shapes the action to produce the results you get?
What is Ontological Coaching?
Our ontological coaching model stems from the word “ontology,” which is the study of the nature and function of “being”.
Ontological coaching explores one’s way of being and functioning, with the objective of transforming mindsets, to produce fundamental and sustainable shifts, in actions and results through the creation of new openings (awareness) in observing and listening. We begin with who we are being in language, and how we impact our environment.
As trained observers, we can impact our way of being in language through exploring and accessing three interrelated linguistic realms: Generate, Emotional, Body
Generative | Emotional | Body
- Consists of how we listen and speak to create with language
- How we feel and create moods to impact our environment and results
- How we move to express our intentions, and how we use our body to access and observe information
Rigorous observers in these three domains are equipped to engage greater capacity to bring forth new possibilities, and generate unpredictable results inside of compelling futures. You will become a quality observer of your life by increasing awareness of your blind-spots that constrain and impact your ability to achieve your vision and goals.
This kind of learning develops a mindset that transforms two domains of activity:
- As observers & listeners – Capable of authentic self-expression.
- As learners & designers – Capable of generating action in any circumstances.
