about the course
We know from experience the power that comes from consistency, being in action and being supported by others
For many of us, the consistent discipline of maintaining pillar practices, being at cause in our lives and living consistent with our vision for ourselves can be difficult to maintain.
That’s why the Practise course follows on as the next step for graduates of the Shift and the Practise Fundamentals course.
It is the jewel in the Sit crown of courses and is created for leaders who are committed to embedding these practices and supporting others to do the same.
The course also builds on the framework created through the previous courses to support leaders to Live A Life Of Integrity that is aligned with their individual sense of purpose.
The course follows a 12-week rhythm with participants and their facilitators meeting on a fortnightly basis in small groups of 8 participants.
Each quarterly period is dovetailed with a half-day recalibration.
“Life is difficult.
This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths.
It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it.
Once we truly know that life is difficult – once we truly understand and accept it – then life is no longer difficult.
Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”
― M. Scott Peck, the road less traveled.
Setting The Framework And Starting The Work
A key focus for the course is creating a life rhythm (schedule) consistent with the lives we are committed to living.
In our first session together we review the cultivations and life facets model as the basis for creating this structure.
Pillar Practices, Priorities And Life Rhythms
Defining what we mean by pillar practices and priorities we do our first deep dive into all areas of our lives from activities with friends and family to our professional roles, money management and the personal legacy that we are creating.
A literal dive into every facet of our lives.
Creating The Rhythm & Where Does It Go
Now that we have a clearer understanding of what we want to do and how we we want to spend our time we now focus on where to put that information, how to reference access and track it.
We become clear on how we spend our time, how to share it with others and how to be organised in a way that feels freeing.
This is liberating as so often structure can feel like a constraint.
Deepening The Rhythm Calendars, Control Buckets, Projects And Reviews
We experience what it feels like to live by the rhythms we have created and how powerful it is to be supported by others in implementing these practices.
We distinguish that everything is a practice, that life is an ebb and flow and that we are either in action or not in action.
To quote the Jedi Master Yoda “Do Or Do Not There Is No Try.”
Being, Completion & Transition
In our final session in this course we explore the idea of who we are being and how important who we are being is in the context of what we are doing.
We explore the cultivations model and internal foundations and the clarity that comes with committing to and practising a specific way of being.
We also explore the Sit ecosystem, what it means to be part of the ripple effect and what the next steps are in the Sit journey.
For attendees who are up for really deepening this work there is the opportunity to move into our leaders in action course.
