Show Notes

If you’re a regular listener to our podcast you will have noticed that we regularly discuss how we might deal with different topics that show up in the coaching room. This week we discussed working with coachees around meaning and purpose. 

Coachees may not always come to coaching asking for support on finding meaningful purpose, but often they’ll talk about feeling stuck, feeling lost, or feeling as though they’re in a bit of a rut. At these times a conversation around what their purpose is and what is meaningful to them can encourage them to generate some new thinking about what might add more meaningful purpose to their life. 

You might well have had times in your own life when you’ve had similar feelings and struggled to find a way through that time. Coaching conversations provide the perfect opportunity to open up this deeper thinking for the coachee. 

 In this episode we explore the concepts of meaning, purpose, and meaningful purpose, and what elements might contribute to the notion of living a meaningful life. 

Note: In this episode Helen mentions our previous episode on the venn diagram often referred to as Ikigai, she says it’s episode 46, it’s not, it’s episode 45. Here’s a link:
