Summary: An automation coaching that enables users to identify their level of happiness in various areas of life, isolate factors that influence happiness in those areas, and select that can improve their happiness in areas with a low happiness measurement. With a few easy steps, everybody can define few changes to enhance their happiness. To get there, they need to establish their strong and weak points to upgrade their behaviors and attitudes.
Positive psychology has brought us a diverse set of scientifically tested exercises and positive interventions; interventions that have been found to promote wellbeing by fostering healthy self-regulation. Instead of primarily focusing on the question: “what is the problem of my client and how can this problem be solved?” the question is: “what does a valuable life look like in the eyes of my client and how can this be achieved?”
“The Wheel of Life” (Whitworth, Kimsey-House, & Sandahl, 1998; Dean, 2004) requires that the client first identifies specific life domains. Subjective well-being involves different components: life satisfaction (global judgments of one’s life), satisfaction with important life domains (e.g., recreation), positive affect (experiencing pleasant emotions and moods), and low levels of negative affect (experiencing few unpleasant emotions and moods) (Diener, 2000).
The two-factor theory (also known as Herzberg’s motivation-hygiene theory and dual-factor theory) states that there are certain factors in the workplace that cause job satisfaction, while a separate set of factors cause dissatisfaction. It was developed by psychologist Frederick Herzberg, who theorized that job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction act independently of each other.
Lateral thinking is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using the reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic. The term was promulgated in 1967 by Edward de Bono.
Genesis and research developed for the creation of the methodology
Our first milestone was the development of the Autocoaching Methodology. It has been necessary a year of work on several focus groups to decompose the happiness in its 58 major areas as it has been done in the Global Map of Life. This complete methodology was developed in 3 books and trained to more than 4,300+ people, and showed in many international congresses (Spain, Germany, Colombia, Guatemala, Perú, Venezuela, Uruguay, Argentina).
More than 120 people reviewed the methodology (economists, engineers, lawyers, physiologies, publishers, biologist, coaches…) and just to mention some names:
- Alex Rovira: Is an entrepreneur, writer, economist, international lecturer and Spanish consultant. It has sold about eight million copies of its different titles, being some of them number 1 of sales in Spain, in Catalan, Spanish and other languages.
- Kimsey-House: One of the first professional coaches in the 1980s, Henry Kimsey-House is the Co-founder and lead designer of the thought-provoking, experiential learning programs of CTI (Coaches Training Institute).
- Tim Ingarfield: Wide ranging experience in consultancy, teaching, training, coaching especially applying Developmental Behavioural Modelling (DBM) in areas which involve cultural integration, skills identification, development, and transfer.
