cult of experts
The Cult of Experts. “The people more competent than we are in innumerable fields of endeavor,” (Girard), with their “Follow These Five Steps” approach to happiness and lacks of respect for human complexity. Today the value is largely mimetically driven rather than attached to fixed, stable points (like a college degree). This has created opportunities for anyone who can stand out from the crowd.

why coach introspection?
Introspection, while potentially yielding valuable self-knowledge, may also lead to self-obsession and chronic rumination. Our culture often emphasizes objectivity and causality, hindering a more open, phenomenological inquiry into ourselves. Shifting toward a "resolving" approach and embracing paradoxical ideas can offer a more constructive path to self-understanding.
