I am interdependent with my family

Where Strengths & Interdependence are mutually inclusive

"Your cross to bear, is your gift to share "

Sam McDonald

Functional Families

thrive through interdependent engagement

Families are the main stay of our societies which is why it is imperative to raise children through interdependent rules of engagement with a focus on what is right with them through their Strengths.  This creates a positive mindset. 

For too long we have confused freedom with independence which has left parents and children feeling disrespected and not heard, from both sides. Freedom comes through interdependent relationships, where we all win.

How can you understand Strengths &  ‘Interdependent Rules of Engagement’?

It starts with you

Inviting a qualified WITH Coach into your family who works through Strengths and Interdependence is where your journey begins. This will start with your personal Strengths Assessment. Thereafter you will spend two hours with a fully qualified Coach to gain a deep understanding into the contributions and needs of your Strengths and how and why sometimes you are triggered into functioning out of Interdependence and what to do about it. Thereafter, it is imperative to engage in personal Strengths Coaching.

Adopting a Culture of Interdependence through Strengths within your Family

Each person within your family is invited to engage in the Strengths Assessment and Coaching. Once the initial ground-work has been completed, one of our fully qualified Coaches will work with your whole family. There are ‘rules’ to how engagement takes place in these group sessions, which include, but are not limited to:

  • To come with Positive Intent

  • No Judgement

  • Acceptance of each other’s intrinsic nature

This is by no means a quick fix. Creating new ways of engaging take commitment and choosing to enter into long-term ‘new’ ways of relating, seeing and being with each other. If you are prepared to put in the effort, without force, the rewards can be exponential.

Hear from Our Clients

Dylan Coetzee.jpeg

Dylan Coetzee 2019 South Africa

I read a book called ‘Great Leaders ask Great Questions’ and that is what Sam McDonald does. In fact the right questions that start and spark the thinking process, because any answers we ever want, lay deep within us, and Sam knows how to lead you within yourself for that answer.

Before I met Sam, I had a perception of myself that I was ‘weird’ or too hardworking. Sam, however, could see my Strengths just by speaking to me, and besides highlighting some of them, she pointed out how working in our non-Strengths, we are effectively wasting our talents. Thereafter, I had a desire to pin-point and develop my Strengths.

I worked with Sam to unlock the potential of my Strengths, as well as gain an understanding of who I was, not by looking at my weakness, though we did spend some time here, but by understanding that I will grow exponentially by focusing on my Strengths and asking others to pick up where i’m not strong. 

The results after working with Sam was improved Leadership, Communication and a better way of seeing people for who they are based on their Strengths and working on that. I now set more goals, have improved focus, and ‘delegate’ my weaknesses. I also celebrate my successes more.

What I would have loved, if I had the resources, was to have taken one of Sam’s Coaching Packages so I had a plan to focus on and work towards. This would have helped with an implementation plan and goals to work on my situation.

Before meeting Sam everyone made me believe I wanted too much out of life and therefore, I was kind of crazy in their eyes. But unlocking the potential of my Strengths has made me realise this is how I was created by God. I am born to do great things.
