Intent in Coaching and E-learning


Today we discussed Intent. What is Intent?

Intent is showing great determination to do something, with full attention, or effort concentrated or focused on one thing. You could also see it as the belief that is driving our thoughts, words and actions.

Discovering your Intent can be a very interesting journey. Ask yourself:

What is the reason why I am doing this?

Well that’s the question I asked myself today in relation to why I want to create E-learning: I discovered I want to train lots of people using E-learning, create a more customer focused approach and create more positive experiences for people.

The second question to ask yourself is:

What do I believe about myself in relation to this situation?

So I answered myself that I am a great facilitator, I can reach people with my message, I am good at helping people learn, I have a great way of making e-learning work, so that it is good, accessible and useful.

The third question would be:

What stopped you from achieving your intent?

Well I answered, time, fear of the unknown, unable to imagine it actually working and I can’t really seem to imagine the path from where I am now to where I would like to be.

Now today in my coaching class with Nick Bosk, a great ICA coach and teacher, we imagined traveling to the future and meeting our future self there, so we could ask some questions. I asked my future self what am I to do next? and I said: You are on the right track, relax, trust in yourself, keep going the way you are going and you will get there. Start small and don’t be too hard on yourself.

This was an extremely insightful experience, which I just had to share with you.

Intent is a very powerful tool, that can really drive you, and the powerful thing is, you can create any intent you want!

The game of life…. ;)


Just had a coaching topic on Lightness versus Significance, wouldn’t life be much easier if you could make a game out of everything? Wouldn’t it be fantastic, if you could play around like a kid and the world was your playground. Think about how much easier life would feel. Not so heavy and difficult with lots of ‘significance’. I like the thought of that.
Now to achieve this is a different point. As we started to talk about this topic, I figured that on a scale of 1 – 10, where 10 is everything is light and game, I was at a 7.5 after chatting for an hour on this topic, I figured I wasn’t quite there, but would like to be there… see things in an easier frame of mind, making life lighter and more fun. So now I realise I am more at the 6 – 6.5 mark, so would like to add some fun and games to my life. I am realizing however that that is easier said than done… but I guess it’s a start to be aware!

Where are you on the scale of Lightness vs Significance?
