Got a question about Wayfinders? Here are a few answers.
Is Wayfinders for me?
How is Wayfinders structured?
In the retreat, you’ll take a step back from your busy life to ask yourself some important questions:
- What are my most important gifts, passions, and experiences?
- Where am I on the path of life right now? Is this a time to go for a dream? To rest? To establish a habit? To conquer a difficult “to-do”?
- Where is my best self calling me right now?
Out of this discernment each teammate chooses a goal to work on for the duration of the team, and creates a detailed action plan to achieve it.
Then your team will have 8 meetings, scheduled at the team’s convenience, every week or two. In between meetings, you’ll be working on steps toward your goal. In the meetings, teammates report in on their progress, ask for ideas, brainstorm around obstacles, get encouragement when things are hard, and celebrate when good things get done.
The only thing teammates need to have in common is a willingness to help each other take a few more steps to become their truest and highest selves.
Wayfinders do more than they think possible because they use the greatest resource we’ve been given….each other!
How much does being on a Wayfinders team cost?
There is a $30 materials cost for the retreat. Usually the retreat is non-residential (everyone goes home to their own bed at night), and to keep costs down we potluck for meals.
For groups that invite me to come at a distance (more than 30 miles from Bath, Maine) I ask for travel expenses.
I have no idea what my goal will be. Do I have to have to have a goal in mind to sign up?
What happens after the team is over?
During the last meeting I’ll give the team several models that others have found work well. Many teams continue to meet regularly – some for years. Others disband, having accomplished what they’d like. Others re-configure with new members. Some teammates pair off and become long-term accountability buddies.
Whether or not you continue on a team, Wayfinders gives you a technique you can use for the rest of your life.
