Begin this months practice by reflecting upon which
domains you currently inhabit. The ten domains are: career, financial, relationships, roles, physical, spiritual, leisure, reflection, learning and creativity. (Click here to read this months article for more details about the domains or read Be Your Own Coach pages 70-72). Consider these questions:
Which domains have you abandoned?
Which domains have you not yet entered?
Which domains do you most prefer?
Now write out a coaching opening you are currently facing (see pages 3-5 in Be Your Own Coach if you aren't sure what a coaching opening is, or look back through previous months' practices on this website). What domain is your opening in?
Looking at the other domains you live in, which ones might give you a fresh perspective on your
opening? Is there a domain you aren't accessing that might bring you new approaches to your coaching opening? (Read this month's book, or watch this month's movie for ideas on how to do this)
After taking time for personal reflection, meet with a coaching partner to
discuss how you might actually enter a different domain to deal with your coaching opening. Try out one of the ideas you discussed together. Set a time to meet with your coaching partner again to share
what you're learning about yourself, your coaching opening and working with different domains.
