Be You: Inspire Others

Imagine if we were surrounded by people who encourage us to take bigger steps than we would have taken on our own, who tell us “you’ve got this, because we’ve got you” and who we could rely on to catch us every time we fall, in the small moments as well as the big.

This is what we want: Coaching to be, Teaching to be, Parenting to be, Friendships to be.

We want to create a world where more children are flying because the people around them know how to help them.

If we want to help children learn to fly;

  • We have to find our own sense of balance first and become more grounded
  • We have to have compassion and belief in ourselves and the people we are with
  • We have to learn to listen beyond the words that we hear in our heads and in the room
  • We have to be active learners and walk alongside our children and our friends

These are skills which we will take a lifetime to master, however we believe that the younger we start, the more likely we will fly and help others fly. We have over 20 years experience as coaches in the world of leadership development and we aim to share these ideas with the world of growing up so more children learn to fly.

We coach, teach, write, podcast & play. Join us in our adventure!

Flying Skills

So what does it take to learn to fly?

The 4 flying skills support us to:

  • increase our awareness of ourselves, our capability and our uniqueness, so we can stretch our imagination, be confident in our own contribution and less inclined to compete with others.
  • learn to think for ourselves and enable others to do the same, so we have an equal voice during conversations in the classroom, playground and at home.
  • build stronger connections with others including friends, parents and teachers, so we can belong whilst being ourselves.
  • learn coaching skills so we can learn from others and inspire them to fly.

The flying formula

Individuality + Belonging + Possibility = Greater Confidence

From our research and experience so far, we have created a snapshot of what it takes to fly.

Encouraging individuality involves thinking for ourselves, being aware of our passions and having more ownership over our choices with a sense of freedom to try out our own ideas.

Promoting a feeling of belonging means realising we can have an equal voice in conversations, our ideas matter and we feel included and supported by others.

Creating a sense of possibility helps us develop new expectations and wonder what else we could try, it encourages us to stretch beyond our comfort zone and imagine new opportunities.

Learning to fly is similar to balancing a stone stack. 

It relies on developing and maintaining strong foundations that help us build our inner strength and core balance.
