J1:Session 4

Coach GuideJ1:Session 4

Purpose/Objective

Have participants identify and distinguish between their interest, passions and burdens.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Passion is conviction that becomes contagious because it withstands the test of pain.

  • Give participants 10 minutes to answer the questions in the funnel, in a brainstorm manner, asking them to think through the things they are interested in, passionate about and burdened by.
  • This is not an exhaustive list but enough that helps them narrow down to 5 words/themes at the bottom of the funnel.

Context-Specific Tips

  • 1:1 Retreat

    The Passion Funnel is the primary tool in the Passion Circle used in the 1:1 Retreat. Work through the 4 questions mining for clarity as you go deeper.

Purpose/Objective

Declaring a holy discontent with 4 things that frustrate participants most.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: What offends you most will most likely be an “opposite indicator” of what you value most.

  • Participants name 4 offenders in no particular order.
  • Offenders are what make you pound your fist or are highly irritating, whether it is a small pet peeve or something that is a deeper offense.

Purpose/Objective

Participants get outside input on what they are most passionate about from the people they are closest to.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Are your passions evident to those who know you?

  • Participants text 12 people, asking for the top three words that best describe what they are most passionate about.
  • Write responses in the Passion 360 worksheet.
  • Have participants hone in on the 4 words that seem most frequent and/or are best representative of the responses. 
  • Make sure they are using copy-and-paste in their texting and not typing it out 12 times.
  • Emphasize that they should send individual texts and not a thread so responders are not influenced by others.

Context-Specific Tips

  • Accelerator

    This can be included in pre-work instructions as well so participants have feedback in hand when working through Passion Circle in ACC.

  • Weekly Cohort

    This exercise can be done as homework outside of cohort session.

Purpose/Objective

Offers a long range perspective on current or desired trajectory of a participant’s most desired contribution to the world.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Your contribution is discovered as you discover God’s dream for you and design your life accordingly.

  • First have participants choose a category that best represents their current or desired trajectory of contribution to the world.
  • Then within that category star or circle one (or two if difficult to decide) types that further articulate that trajectory.
  • This does not mean it is the only thing they contribute but rather help to clarify what most satisfies them.

Purpose/Objective

To create a reference tool that puts all of the participant's core Passion Circle inventory on one sheet of paper so they have easy access to it.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: “Gifting connects our lives to God’s power. Passions direct our lives with God’s precision.” – Dave Rhodes

  • Have participants look through their work from all of the Passion Circle tools.
  • Using their notes, have participants hone in on each of the answers the Passion Circle Inventory Worksheet is requesting.
  • Communicate that having this inventory on one sheet of paper will be very helpful as they continue in the process.
  • After they’ve filled out the Passion Circle Inventory, they need to file it under the ‘Sweet Spot” tab in Notebook.

Context-Specific Tips

  • Accelerator

    If you introduced the inventory at the start of Passion Circle then it will be completed at this point and then filed under Sweet Spot Tab.

  • 1:1 Retreat

    Passion Inventory is one easel pad sheet sheet to capture all inputs and insights that contributes to answering the question, “What Fuels Me?”
