I’m excited about celebrating my birthday in November by making a difference in young lives… in helping to change a nation – our nearest neighbours.
Since going to Kokoda last year (scroll through the Kokoda files) I’ve become aware of the plight of thousands upon thousands of children who live just a few hours north of here. Papua New Guinea has half a million children in need of a school and a teacher. I’ve been thinking about how I can support – and I’ve also been thinking (as you do if you love birthdays) “what am I going to do for my birthday”? :)
I decided I can use November to promote the work of Kokoda Track Foundation as they prepare for the amazing college that will train teachers.
So – plan number one – I’m going to be Silent For A Day!! (I know, some people could think it’s not possible for me and might donate just to dare me to accomplish it)
I’ll be silent and give Kokoda Kids a voice – by supporting their education. AND I’ll be making a difference in my own community at the same time. How? It gets even better… I won’t be silent in seclusion – that would be too easy. I’ll not only park myself in a local cafe, but I’ll LISTEN all day to people who come to speak to me about challenges they want to think through and create solutions. If you’re up for it – I will be a mirror to your thinking as I do in coaching, but I will only help you think things through by writing down a question or two, to help clarify your thinking.
I’m so excited about this idea as I can also demonstrate the power of listening. How long since you’ve really felt listened to? And when did you last really listen to someone? Without judgement or opinions – just listening to serve the speaker?
I know the difference this makes for myself and my clients, so I want to share the opportunity more widely. So once you’ve sat with me for half an hour and walked away with solutions and ideas that energise you, you can choose to make a donation to the Kokoda College project :)
I shared this idea with a colleague in Sydney who said “Oh I’d LOVE to sit in a cafe and be listened to by you” – she knows the value of being heard :)
The date is Tuesday 26 November – wherever you live you can be involved – check this out (CLICK)
So, plan number two – for those who’ve been thinking they’re a little (or a lot) stuck in life – work, relationships, health or thought-life… The Significant Shift Session that kick-starts you into an amazing space of clarity and focus is going to make a huge difference here and in PNG!
With every Significant Shift Coaching Session that is booked and scheduled before 29 November – 50% of the fee goes directly to building the Kokoda College. If you’re interested, send me a note or give me a call and I’ll send you the insightful checklists that will help you decide if you’re ready for a Shift in your thinking. Contact Kerrie.
I’m passionate about creating Significant Shifts that unlock possibilities in the lives of Difference-Makers so I’m giving you an opportunity to change your world and someone else’s.
Here’s what others have to say about this session….
“My coaching experience was about moving forward with clarity – Kerrie coached, I moved forward. I found working with Kerrie extremely valuable due to her strong, unique ability to be personal – to shape incisive questions only by being a strong listener.” – Bruce Brodie, Perth
