The halocline is an opaque transitional zone where salt and fresh water meet, and is often encountered by explorers entering underwater cave systems. This threshold is a gateway to the next stage of the journey.
The halocline also represents a threshold for the client: perhaps a state of transition, resistance, or inertia. It is a liminal zone of ‘not knowing’: a place of potential discomfort, confusion, and disorientation; but also of inspiration, creativity, and transformation.
As a coach I support and challenge my clients to identify, navigate, and – ultimately – move through the halocline so that they may emerge with a greater sense of vision and clarity, and continue on their leadership journey.
Grey areas. You know the ones I mean. They’re so tricky because, well, they’re grey. There’s no definition, no differentiation, no black and white. Just one opaque, perhaps conflicted, even disorientating situation.
Disruption is a tear in the fabric of our reality. It is an interruption to our sense of normality and a pause in the rhythm of our life.
Do you sometimes feel as though you’ve hit a wall? That you can no longer see the way ahead, and that your efforts are met only with resistance?
