Living Into the Questions

Description: A Vocational Discernment Workshop Series for Seattle University Alumni
with Peach Jack, Masters in Transformational Leadership, Certified Life Coach
A Four-part series of creative group coaching for life transitions that is beneficial to those who are seeking fulfillment, life balance, meaning, and/or self-awareness. Participants will explore their own questions through a variety of discovery processes, including personality preferences, values and motivation, visioning and decision-making. This unique approach includes traditional coaching strategies such as practical goal-setting as well as understanding the need for exploring and integrating all the “parts of you”.

The Enneagram will be introduced as a tool that illuminates both helpful and inhibiting elements. (Recommend: The Essential Enneagram, David N. Daniels , Virginia A. Price, a simplified version of the types.)
