Claire writes: “I’ll never stop laughing (or saying doh!’) when I suddenly see something obvious that I have never seen before.  This week it’s about space.

Now that most of my work is online, I will always give a 5 minute comfort break every hour .  And I know that when people come back some have had insights in the space that they wouldn’t have had while we are together. I also know that in coaching, people can have their best insights just after the session is over.  So why on earth have I never thought of offering a processing break in a one hour conversation? 

I will now!  We were talking about this in a supervision session, and people were thinking of all kinds of ways to do that – watch this space – it may become a conversation at the Coaching Inn! ”
