The Rolling Square
“Shaping your Social-Emotional Intelligence”
Introducing The Rolling Square
“There was a Square that wished to roll,
But on a flat ground it just couldn’t go.
And the circles passing by,
Told Square to give it a try.
Would you give it a try?”
We are all Square
Find Yourself and Your Place to Roll
Have you ever felt that you had some greater purpose in life? Well, let me be one to give you an affirmation – YES, you are extra special, and you are meant for something special!
Each of us is different and unique. But I believe we can all relate to Square. The circles around Square could roll so effortlessly. But no matter how hard Square tried, it just could not get going. Maybe Square was not meant to roll. But still, there is a deep feeling inside that it could do more.
Like Square looking at the circles, we sometimes look around and see others seemingly able to get going so effortlessly. When we are stuck in a situation after trying and failing, repeating the same thing will not help. We need to get new understanding and new ideas.
The Rolling Square life coaching program is based upon the three Rolling Square stories (“The Square that Wanted to Roll”, “The Half-Square”, and “Square & Shapes Journey to Rainbow’s End”). These books will help us discuss and develop our social-emotional competencies to find success in life. Explore your answers to some of life’s fundamental questions:
Who am I?
Where am I going?
How can I get there?
What will I do when I get there?
Of course, none of these questions will matter if you do not know: Why are we doing this anyway?
What is Social-Emotional Learning?
Social-emotional learning is the process that enables us to understand and manage ourselves and others toward nurturing positive relationships and achieving positive life goals. Social-emotional learning is related to but different from character education. Character education provides character and leadership strengths as building blocks for success. However, because each person is unique, we use these strengths differently and practically. Social-emotional learning will help you understand yourself better – your VIPS!
What Are Your VIPS?
You are your VIPS. The VIPS are your values, interests, preferences, and strengths.
Values: Why do you do it?
Interests: What do you like to do?
Preferences: How do you like to do it?
Skills: How good are you at it?
Each of us is different in our combinations and expressions of our VIPS. It is when Square realizes who it is that it can finally get rolling. Likewise, when you begin to understand your VIPS, you can find and enjoy the true meaning of happiness and success.
What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is the process of helping you see and understand yourself and your situation better. It will enable you to make better decisions and plan the right strategies to move forward in life.
Unlike a teacher or mentor who might give more specific instructions or advice, a life coach focuses on asking the right questions to help you think through the steps for actions towards your goals. Because we are sometimes too close and emotionally entangled in our life situations, we may have mental blocks that keep us from making the best decisions.
A life coach can provide perspective to help you get unstuck and rolling. The Rolling Square life coaching program will help you explore your VIPS and get moving forward.
