Our Oneness

Solution-Focused Coaching is a powerful ingredient in our world today. As One team, we foster heartfelt projects in service to humanity and the planet that leverage social engagement. We are not political, nor do we carry a banner for any cultural wars. As agents of global unity and emergence, our aim is to be professional, positive and relaxed in our global presence and approach.

Like many have said in the past, the 21st century is the hallowed hour of humanity.  We either rise past our old fears, shed the skin of repression, private focus, and denial, or we pay a terrible price. We need to start wherever we can, or we become bystanders of a global tragedy. These are the times that require maximum leadership at the most individual level of personal engagement. We believe The World Game is here for this purpose - to connect us back our Oneness. We all have the power to choose the long-term well-being of humanity in every action that we take.

In June 2010, while traveling between four countries: first Korea, then Canada, France, and Serbia; the Football World Cup was happening on daily TV from Soweto, South Africa. Moving from country to country, I watched people gathering around televisions in restaurants and stores, and celebrating through the streets. I saw rapt faces everywhere, cheering and booing, fully engaged with the various matches of National Football. What a compelling vision the teamwork provided for each country, even to the small children excitedly practicing football and soccer in the parks.

Notice, friends, that what we do with coaching, especially Solution Focused Coaching, is to assist people to create games worth playing and then build the motivation to do them. 

What is the power of a game to engage our compelling vision and motivation so thoroughly? Even difficult jobs don’t seem like work whenever we love and enjoy doing what we do. We easily turn the impossible into the possible. 

A  game creates a vortex of engagement. We work seriously while not taking ourselves too seriously. I suggest that we now need coaching style games to focus the whole planet on the important life concerns we humans now share! We need to incite people to engage and to create their own human development system. We need true leadership games which are clear and compelling, so people naturally want to get engaged, where the rules make sense, and with steps that are doable.

It is time for us to create a ‘World Cup’ for leaders creating a world that works for everyone. We can build a strong movement with an exciting vision of possibility for us all.
Seven years later the World Cup for Coaches is well established and the World Game International Meetings draw hundreds. Most important people are declaring themselves players, creating legacy initiatives and moving the ‘ball’ in many key areas.
