How to calm a llama?

Such is the eclectic mix of people on a Barefoot Coaching Ltd PG Cert Coaching Course – that a lunchtime conversation between a civil servant, an alpaca small-holding owner/international woman of business and a coach went:

Question: So how exactly do you calm a lama?

Answer: You have to be calm yourself? If they are skittish, angry or restless you just have to remain absolutely calm and then they will calm. 

This conversation stuck with me and got me thinking. One, what a joy it is to be a facilitator on the Barefoot PG Cert in Business & Personal Coaching – always an eclectic mix, always original, thoughtful and interesting. Two, that often how you are impacts a system or a relationship much more dynamically than what you do.
