J1:Session 10

Coach GuideJ1:Session 10

Purpose/Objective

Give an overview of what the Context Circle is about and the practical components participants will walk through to understand their context in answering the question, “Where is my Impact the Greatest?”

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Context is often responsible for a person’s discontent because they may be operating outside of their best context.

  • Give a brief overview again of how Context fits into the wider Sweet Spot tool. We’ve done the Passion & Ability Circles, now we are doing Context.
  • Work through the following assessments to help participants more fully discover their context:
    • Live Sent
    • Activator and Advantage
    • Workplace Motivators
    • Workstyle
    • Organizational Preferences
    • Life Stage Identification

Context-Specific Tips

  • Accelerator

    Have participants pull out Context Circle Inventory sheet from their Younique Experience Notebook to record summary content from the tools within the Context Circle as they complete each one.

Purpose/Objective

Giving Biblical context to persons and places of peace as we see patterned by Jesus in the Gospels.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Our God is a sending God and we are uniquely positioned to be sent by Him to engage with particular people and places.

  • Have participants answer each of the 4 questions – both descriptions and specifics.
    • Who Brings Out My Best?: These are the people that are our best match, who sharpen us and offer life-giving relationships.
    • To Whom Should I Give My Best?: These are the people we are uniquely wired to invest in based on our story, design and calling. People that are ready to receive our investment. People of Peace.
    • What Place Needs My Best?: These are the places that we are drawn to invest in based on calling, circumstances, and connection. Places that are in need of and can receive our greatest impact.
    • What Place Brings out My Best?: Where do you go for refreshment? Is it the place that receives your contribution or is it different? Do you regularly seek to “withdraw” to those places?

Context-Specific Tips

  • Weekly Cohort

    This is the tool that will most likely bring the most breakthrough within the Context circle. If you want to maximize the opportunity for sharing and coaching you can use the teaching video as preparation prior to the weekly session. Have participants fill out the tool and come ready to share.

Purpose/Objective

Bring the Passion, Ability and Context Circles together as we begin to name the Sweet Spot.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: There are many things you can do. What is the one thing you MUST do that only YOU can do? 

  • Demonstrate the overlap of the three circles and where they come together to form the Sweet Spot – this is where the shape of the tools comes from.
  • There are three ways to name your Sweet Spot in this tool.
    • First is the Signature Scripture which is a verse that has long held significance for the participant OR one that encapsulates well the overarching theme of their sweet spot.
    • Second, participants will take 4 big ideas that they synthesize from each of the 3 Circle inventories to create one long run-on sentence.
    • Lastly, are the Two Words that express their LifeCall. The work of mining out their two words is what comes next.

Purpose/Objective

To express what they are doing when they are doing everything else, in two words; the one thing they must do.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: What is the ONE thing you must do? 

There are two different ways you can have participants complete the Two Word Worksheet:

1. Introduced early on in Journey 1 it can be a gradual population of expressing their LifeCall as they are in process of understanding their Sweet Spot. (Common practice for Accelerators)

2. After all 3 Circles are completed and Sweet Spot inventory is already populated creating a large language bank to pull from. (Common practice for Weekly Cohort)

Demonstrate the structure of their two word pairing as __(verb)__ing __noun___.

Objective is 100-200 word pairings. Quantity leaves room for creativity and clarity without disclaimers.

60% clarity is the goal at this point.

Context-Specific Tips

  • Accelerator

    This is something that is often introduced at an earlier point in the Accelerator process and is worked on in intervals prior to this focused time of finishing.

  • Weekly Cohort

    In a weekly cohort 20 minutes can be used in session and then completed out of session.

Purpose/Objective

To see their Two Word Calling as the unique way they live out the common call we all have as followers of Jesus - to love God and love others.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Sweet spot helps you find the one thing-singularity of your SPECIAL calling, without being too general or too specific.

  • Have participants add their “best way I say this today” Two Words to their Sweet Spot summary as the final way of expressing the clarity of their sweet spot that serves as an internal compass for them as an individual.
  • Encourage participants that their Two Words are a primary breakthrough component of the Younique process that will daily inform and clarify the most natural way that they can’t help but step into the life God has given to them.
