ARISE Coaching Framework
ARISE Model is a very unique model of approach towards coaching for self-actualization. According to Maslow’s Theory of Hierarchy, Maslow called the bottom four levels of the pyramid ‘deficiency needs’ because we do not feel anything if they are met but become anxious or distressed if they are not. Thus, physiological needs such as eating, drinking, and sleeping are deficiency needs, as are safety needs, social needs such as friendship and sexual intimacy, and ego needs such as self-esteem and recognition. Whereas, Maslow called the fifth, top level of the pyramid a ‘growth need’ because our need to self-actualize obliges us to go beyond our individual, limited selves and fulfill our true potential as human beings.
A-Appreciative – Soulful Awareness
It is a necessary fact for an individual to become aware of his existence and for giving meaning to his or her living. A life without cause is a life without effect. We should remember that the saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have. We owe it to ourselves to be what we always intended to be. This is done by increasing our awareness through Appreciative living.
R-Reflective – Insightful Discovery
To become a legend one has to discover one’s true identity. Your identity is not only the designation you have acquired in your life rather it is your deeds for the sake of humanity. It becomes possible only when you get the insight of “who you are and what marks are you leaving behind for the people to know and feel your absence.”
I-Interactive – Curated Potentiality
Ever thought of curating your real potentials? A majority of us can become what we desired or dreamt of becoming in our lives. But only a few have the tendency to go beyond their discovered abilities, and if you are reading this then surely you want to explore and go beyond your acquired potentials.
S-Systemic – Sensitized Delivery
Once you have discovered your real-self, you certainly manifest your thoughts to come into action so that you can sensibly deliver your service to humankind and be truly yourself.
E-Empathetic – Gracefully Human
How a world will appear if we are empathetic towards the people who come into our interaction? Obviously, a beautiful and fair place to thrive in. Empathy can be displayed through our actions, actions that are selflessly delivered to the people and planet who are in need of it. Just by living a life for our own selves is not enough. All we need to do is ponder upon the reason for our existence and make it worth it for others.
BG 3.27: All activities are carried out by the three modes of material nature. But in ignorance, the soul, deluded by false identification with the body, thinks itself to be the doer.
