Enjoy this fascinating conversation on liminalities within the coaching environment in which Sunny and Burgert Kirsten discuss the liminal space in a coaching intervention.
Liminality, in Sunny’s words, is “about rights of passage, thresholds”. She goes on to say that: “in the work that we (coaches) do, it’s the possibility of new perspectives from learning.” Sunny talked about three stages in the liminal process:
- Separation from how you were before, or how you’ve always behaved;
- Being open to learning and developing some new insights, or looking with new perspectives;
- Moving into a new or different space – who you are now.
