What our members say about us
I am very grateful having participated in some of your workshops - I do not want to become a professional coach. But in many fields I consider your concept GROW very useful and applicable:
G -- Goal
R -- Reality Check
O -- Options
W -- Will (Way forward)
I highly recommend these principles.
I took part in 2 of the seminars organized by the OpenDays Coaching Club. I enjoyed the organization and the opportunity to collect different points of view – from the participants and from the coaches. I believe also leading such seminars with a focus on real life examples is very valuable and I could see that in the workshops as well. Thanks for the positive attitude and the good balance between exercises and theory.
Nothing happens without a reason. I think, we meant to meet exactly in a very importantant time of my life, when I needed help in form of Coaching and advice.
Curiosity was the reason which brought me to Elena's first workshop. But what convinced me was the warm and open way to discuss problems and goals, the perfect preparation, lead of the workshops and the very effective coaching sessions offered afterwards.
I wish you good luck and thank you once again for everything!
I recommend The Call to people who are open to deep self-examination, actively seeking personal growth and persevering to find their own unique voice amid all the pointless chatter around. I also advise to go through the whole series of workshops and not cherry pick one or the other so the big picture to emerge. Therefore, going through the workshops does take time but then again, nothing good enough comes out of short-cuts.
The workshops are done in a group and can get revelatory. If one is honest enough, these bring to light one’s underlying personal needs, beliefs, values, attitudes and examine them in an objective lens, so to speak. Non-judgmental discussions with a partner or a tiny group and with the coach ensues.
In the end, what comes out is also what one diligently puts in and if it’s done well, then what’s important to oneself emerges along with how to make more of those happen. The bonus is that one finds the same kind of people who are in their own journey of personal growth and development.
How can anyone truly benefit from an insightful and well-thought of workshop such as this? All of us can relate to being open to self-examination, seeking personal growth and finding our own voice in one way or another. All of us would like to enrich our lives that way. Well, if that is truly urgent and important to all of us then every coaching group and seminar would be totally crowded, but that’s not happening.
I think what sets this series apart is that it allows one to articulate the most important questions and at best, caters wonderfully to individuals that are already aware and attempt to address that gnawing discontent regardless of how uncomfortable and vulnerable it is to be in that position.
The words of Henry David Thoreau came to mind:
"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation, and go to the grave with the song still in them."
At the end of the day, it does not hurt to allot 3 hours or so per week to focus on oneself, to design how to live better and to define better in one’s own terms. As what Lee Stringer said: "perhaps it is time to stop, take a time-out, take as long as it takes, and attend to the unaddressed business of filling our souls."
And that’s where The Call does it best.
The Call, Personal Mastery Programme is a mind-blowing experience which I can highly recommend to everyone. I fact I think the world would become a better place if everyone would embark on the journey of personal development
“You organized it well by focusing on a certain topic each session. You brought everyone into the discussion, which was interesting and valuable. Great job!”
“Very good interaction with the members. Very good content – effective material. Good interactive activities.”
