As mentioned in the video up there there are a couple of logistics for this course. So here’s a small overview.
1. The Methodology of this Fellowship
This is NOT a stupid online course. This is also NOT a silly zoom-party where one Guru talks about “how to find happiness in 3 steps” and you all diligently listen. No! The online input is minimal, because we think online courses mainly suck.
Instead: The Purpose Fellowship makes you the master of the course! We will allocate you in respective Masterminds which will serve as your peer group for the duration of the Fellowship. We will teach you the basics of coaching. You coach your Mastermind peers and get coaching from them, too. You will agree on how much coaching you want and how many sessions. The Arc and tbd will be by your side to support you in your overall coaching mission.
Why this is better than any other coaching format online we have seen so far?
- It is ACTUAL community. Not just some stupid “we all listen to one person on zoom”
- You learn the basics of coaching – not just through a course, but through practice
- You are accountable – not just to one far-away-course-teacher but to the actual people in your Mastermind
2. Your Mastermind
It’s better with company! As part of this Fellowship we will allocate you to a small group. This is your Mastermind. Your partners in crime. The people who will challenge and support, coach you and from who you shall receive coaching from.
We will make a specific slack channel for your Mastermind, but it is also allowed to exchange whatsapps, emails… whatever. Yes, you are officially allowed to have as much contact as you and AND EVEN become friends.
3. The Online Class
The basics of coaching are shockingly simple. We deliberately say “basics” as you won’t be a certified coach by the end of it. But, you will probably get the hang of it.
You may do the online class at your own speed. The videos are there to help but all knowledge is covered in the text below the videos.
We will introduce all coaching techniques needed for the Mastermind Calls in the beginning of each call. So take the Online Class more as a documentation/ wikipedia of what we teach you rather than obligatory content to flip through before each Mastermind Call.
4. Your Mastermind Calls
The Mastermind Calls are your weekly check-ins:
- Please be 3-5min early
- We open with a plenary session to present the “coaching-knowledge-nugget” of the week
- We allocate everyone in breakout rooms to give and receive coaching (one facilitator stays in the main room for questions)
- It is well possible that you will decide with your Mastermind to meet up more often than just on for the calls. This is totally up to you.
It is YOUR responsibility to show up (Guess we don’t have to say this – but never mind…).
5. Your Question Box
There is a high likelihood that someone from your Mastermind or you yourself might get stuck in the process. This is utterly normal. We are there for you to support you. Please ask any question that you have and we shall answer it in the next upcoming call.
6. The Slack Group
This is our space to connect, communicate! And it is our space to really challenge and support each other. DO give it a try to post your successes and fuckups there! You might just be surprised how amazing it is to have other people feel for you and go through with you that experience. AND of course: Do participate! Comment on other people’s post, share with them what resonates with you. We are here to grow altogether.
On slack we will also allocate you to your respective Mastermind group. Meet your team there,
With these words: ROCK ON!
