SFP 21 - Episode 21: Living in Sunday Right Away: Interview with Laura Cole about her first three weeks with SF

by Elfie Czerny & Dominik Godat | Simply Focus Podcast | 30:01

„The subject of the day was actually not the meeting, it was their preferred future and the meeting was just a vehicle to support that. And that completely changed the environment, the dialogue, the conversations.“ 

 

“The other main difference is the time. So, that is something I have noticed immediately, how much faster the conversation gets to a really, what I would consider the active point.”

 

„But then on Sunday you live in the hope and you live in the promise of what the resurrection has brought. (…) Why are we having that conversation about Saturday, when it’s a very clear philosophy in Christian idea that Sunday is the better choice. (…) spreading that idea that the Christian coaching should actually move into a Sunday conversation and not leave our clients in Saturday.”
Laura Cole

  1. SF on Tour mit Elfie Czerny & Dominik Godat

    Wow what a great challenge of the week! We are in!

    Let’s deliberately use our greeting sequences to foster positive dynamics.

    One of the cards in our card set “50 inspirierende Ideen für Führungskräfte” (50 inspiring ideas for leaders) that we are about to publish in English in fall (stay tuned), is exactly about that (see picture below).

    Here are some of our favorite ways to greet people:

    – Hi, what are you looking forward to today?
    – Hello, I admire how you did …
    – Hey nice to meet you, what have been your highlights of the day?
    – Hi, what did you enjoy most about …?
    – Welcome, it’s so great to see you because…
    – Hi, did you know I like … about you.
    – Great to meet you, I was wondering what we could do together today to make this really useful.
    – …

    And what are your ideas?

    Thank you for learning together!

    Elfie & Dominik

    A joyful salutation
