The current moment presents many challenges for people all around the world. Unemployment, financial struggle, social isolation, loss, grief and uncertainty are but a few of the obstacles and feelings that most people are trying to manoeuvre.
As a transformational coaching school you won’t be surprised to hear that we know just how powerful coaching can be in helping people to reframe thoughts, opinions and perspectives, in turn enabling them to see their current situation in a completely different light.
What you might be more surprised about (though we aren’t!) is just how pioneering our vibrant community of change-making coaches has been in creating initiatives to offer support to those in need.
In this Q&A interview piece I sit down with Animas coach-in-training and Founder of the More Happi coaching initiative Ashleigh Tennent to explore where the idea for the programme came from, the mission behind it, the exciting developments that are already happening and how you can get involved and support More Happi on its journey to support those in need.
Sam: Thanks for taking the time to sit down with me today Ashleigh. I’d love to hear the story behind how you came upon the More Happi programme.
And how long has the ball been rolling with More Happi?
Have you found many others who want to give back too? What has the response to the programme been like?
Ah it’s amazing to have a partnership like that under your belt at this early stage. Is it just you running More Happi?
How have you found the experience of getting the ball rolling with a project like this?
And do you have any advice for anyone that might be wanting to start an initiative like this?
What are some of your goals and milestones for the rest of 2020?
You seem to have lots of support around you which is no doubt key in managing a project like this. Around this notion of support, I wondered in what ways training with Animas and joining the Animas community has been helpful in creating the More Happi programme?
What are your next steps and how can people get involved in supporting the More Happi programme?
That’s great Ashleigh. Thank you so much for taking the time to talk with me, and I look forward to following your journey as you take this pioneering initiative forward!
