A Coaching Distinction to Help Create More Change for Clients

Things are feeling a little chaotic over here. I’m preparing to lead a 4-day retreat next week (it’s Retreat #1 for the folks in my Into the Depths Ritual and Facilitation Mastery training).

I’m also gearing up for some AMAZINGNESS coming your way about how to go deeper with your coaching skills (more on that coming very soon).

And…I’m going to see “Hamilton” tonight!!! I am soooo very excited.

During times like this, when things get really busy, my morning and evening rituals become even more important to help keep me sane and grounded. (Is that the same for you?)

This week’s blog post is a FB live that I did today. It’s about a really simple yet super important principle that will help you take your work with clients to the next level. Click here to view it.

I hope you enjoy what I share and would love to hear your thoughts!

With love,

  • Client has stopped taking actions toward her goals
  • Client is taking actions that are actually moving her backwards instead of forward
