The inspiration driving our refreshing and innovative coaching model
There is an ancient story that was the driving force behind Wide Open launching.
It says “A certain man who was in the business of destroying lives, fell off his horse on his way into the city. Dazed and confused, he rises to his feet, his eyes wide open, but he can’t see a thing. So his companions and friends arrive and lead their blind friend by the hand and take him into the city. He waits for days for his sight to return, but it doesn’t. Not yet anyway.”
Wide Open is about helping those people whose eyes are open but are unable to see – to see the future, opportunities, hope, purpose, value and meaning – be taken by the hand and led into the freedom of living a life of meaning, purpose and fulfillment.
It’s this purpose that is the inspiration behind Wide Open’s coaching model.

We’ve never been driven by applause, financial reward or status. They’ve always seemed like absurd motivators – short-lived and lacking in meaning.
Growing up, I was taught that life was not about me, that I am not the centre of the universe, that there are people around me who have needs that are greater than mine. I was also taught that if you see a problem, then do all you can to fill it. That with those people who are all around me, I have an ability in some way, be it large or small to do something about alleviating the plight of someone less fortunate.
And so our two worlds have collided; the world of coaching (business) and the world of giving back.
We’re on a mission to change the coaching game forever.

The thing about the coaching and personal development industry is that the people who need it the most simply can’t afford the services available. The people, young and old who need the breakthroughs and clarity that coaching affords do not have room in their budgets to access these valuable and hope giving services.
So, our coaching model is designed to satisfy our conscience and lead a revolution.
Here’s how it works (it’s really simple):
For every coaching session you receive, we give one to a teenager who can’t access it.
• For every fog that is lifted to clarify your future, we lift the fog for someone else.
• For every goal that is set to create success for you, we set goals for a teenager’s future.
• For every ounce of confidence you receive, we build the confidence of a teenager.
• For every feeling of connectedness you receive, we connect meaning into the life of a teenager.
• For every moment of identity gained, we give identity to a young person.
It’s a simple but powerful way of coaching, one that we believe will change the personal and professional development industry forever.

We hope you will join us in capturing the vision behind what we’re doing. You can participate and receive coaching knowing that the benefits you receive are being forwarded on to a teenager who needs the magic of coaching more than anyone else.
It’s coaching with conscience and it’s here to better distribute the benefits of life coaching to those who need it most.
