People ask me to explain ‘integral coaching’. For me, the easiest way to describe it is that we help people to turn ‘stumbling blocks’ into ‘stepping stones’.
I was delighted when Andrew Bryant started his workshop at the National Speakers of Australia convention in Melbourne in April 2011 with his theme poem, ‘Isn’t it strange?’ Andrew, thanks for sharing.
Isn't it Strange?
Isn't it strange, that princes and kings,
and clowns that caper in sawdust rings,
and common-folk like you and me,
are builders for eternity?
To each is given a bag of tools,
a shapeless mass and a Book of Rules;
and each must make 'ere time has flown,
a stumbling block or a stepping stone.
R.L. Sharpe, "A bag of tools," circa 1809
