Intro


If you are human, then you are in this conversation...

Are you willing to give your life to what you are divinely designed to accomplish?

 

Whether you want to be the source of this conversation, is whether you Orbit.

You are willing and able to accomplish something in this world.

... And your success requires you creating your reality because the world as it is now does not hold up to what you feel, see, or know is possible.

When what you are here for is in-your-face to accomplish, who do you know to call?

I coach people - Orbiteers - who are aspiring for more and accomplishing more at a velocity beyond the norm.

Orbiteers are spirit beings here to manifest something in this physical world. Orbiteers are extra-ordinary with their commitment to excellence.

It turns out that before you are free to act on what you are here to accomplish, you must be listened to profoundly.

You must be understood at the deepest level and you must see that reflection back to you clearly. 

Before you get gotten, it's an urge you cannot articulate... and it can feel painful to experience some urge you can't see or say or talk about. 

In that moment of deep listening, you hear your word to live by. Witnessing that moment is what pulls me to coach.

Coaching is a kind of love that is beyond personal. It is the most intimate way to relate to somebody I have encountered. 

I 'do' little for you - I listen, and, the way I listen empowers. My 'being' is more than what is required for you to fulfill what it is you're here for.

Orbit Coaching is agenda-free listening, pure empowerment, and a choice to engage based on: I, as a coach, know that our engagement will enhance your performance.

A point comes for every Orbiteer during the free Introductory Orbit Session where nothing is going to be the same afterwards. They know their life will be forever altered - a permanent reckoning or recognizing.

Around that moment I hear myself say, "Do you want to Orbit?"

I don't pretend to know what just happened. I just know we're Orbiting at that point and I offer an Orbit as a way to structure our new engagement.

I have no control on how effective the coaching is. It is up to you - the Orbiteer. 

All coaching occurs in the listening of you, the client, and particularly in the action taken by you in between sessions.

That's the evidence of effective coaching: Is the world different? Are you being different?

Why Coaching?


I live my life in growing orbits which move out over this wondrous world. I am circling around God, around ancient towers, and I have been circling for a thousand years.

And, I still don't know if I am an eagle or a storm or a great song.

- Rainer Maria Rilke

Why Coaching?

 

Because how you see things has something to do with what you consider your options are to affect whatever change you want to make in the world or whatever impact you want to have with what you do.

If you looked at the world and saw things differently, your choices would be different. Your actions would be different.

Orbit Coaching deals with from where action comes.

And it comes from your perception, your view, your incomplete past - or not. What's possible comes from your perspective. What you are capable of comes from your perspective.

Effective coaching loosens the grip of an old paradigm, it suspends it, you can kind of see it and feel the opening and something else being thinkable.

A century ago, "coaching" was in the arts and it was not called coaching. Teaching is what we called it.

Decades ago we were only familiar with the word coach in the world of sports.

Coaching had never been used in business - it had never been a general, accepted, some everybody-knows-they-need-it thing. 

Now, I'll attend social dinners and I overhear "Everybody needs a coach..." like a normal comment.

I was part of the movement to bring transformational coaching to business, but the more normal and ordinary something becomes the less distinguished it becomes.

It turns into a buzzword instead of a powerful relationship.

Coaching is a place you stand in, It's who you are, it's a particular way of relating. It's a realm of existence.

Thirty-five years ago I started sharing valuable ways of looking at things and started getting paid for that.

I didn’t call it anything. Calling it coaching came later.

Coaching from the Realm of Mastery


Life is not a having and a getting. But a being and becoming.

Coaching from the Realm of Mastery

 

I have had a very fulfilling career. Who I'm working with now has got a full future ahead of them.

I see the neurosis of trying to "make it" in a world of plenty.

I hear the noise of success that drowns out where you could get fulfilled and satisfied from. "You should do this... you should be like that." 

Many coaches compete and have you compete in the world of success, driven by the idea that success is the pinnacle expression of life.

Yo-yo Ma.

Yo-yo Ma.

In the realm of Mastery, there is no comparison or competition. Masters pursue fulfillment - and that includes success.

Yet, in pursuing fulfillment you are incomparable.

Orbiteers willing to be incomparable are not driven by success, but by the fulfillment of their Self and purpose here on Earth.

And so, the question...

Are you willing to give your life to what you are divinely designed to accomplish?
