Leveraging the Shadow for Greater Client Transformation

One thing I go deep into when I support clients to become Master Facilitators or Master Coaches is to understand the Shadow, all its layers, and how to effectively use it in your facilitation and 1:1 work to help your clients move past limiting patterns and obstacles.

When I train my Master Facilitators on all this in person, a core tenet is that you can’t support your clients with their Shadows if you’re not willing to fully look at your own. And so we go very deep into magically and sacredly helping you journey to the depths of your soul to come face to face and then become friends with your Shadow.

A Love Letter to Coaches Who Go Deep

I don’t know about you… but I cringe at surface level coaching and advice…

All of the noise about “live your best life” and “be positive” and “high vibes” is just one half of the equation. (And if I can be so bold… the half where not much real and lasting change happens for our clients).

I love the shadows. The craggy depths of the human psyche. I love to go deep.

How about you?

I wrote this “love letter” for you to inspire you to keep on doing what you’re doing and to remind you of the incredible value that you offer.

It’s too easy to lose sight of this in a transformational industry that can sometimes be a bit flashy or surface-oriented. We can feel as if we’re getting drowned out by pretty instagram pages and quick fix promises.

Those of us who go deep? We need each other. We need reminders to stay the course and keep doing the work.

I wrote this love letter for you. You can read it at the link below.

A Love Letter to Coaches Who Go Deep

One of the Most Core Foundational Coaching Principles, Period

In my nineteen years of coaching, teaching, and facilitating…in my 10 years of parenting and working to raise daughters who are secure, confident and at peace…and in my many decades of being a human being communicating with family, friends, colleagues, and strangers…I have learned quite a bit about what it takes to hold space for deep growth, transformation, evolution and aligned action taking.

There is, of course, a lot that goes into this: mastery of questioning skills and listening skills and acknowledging skills and strategizing skills and reflection skills; mastery of working with resistance and working with fear and working with self-sabotage and working with Shadow. READ MORE

The 4 Levels of Transformation you must provide your clients

(integrate this into EVERY coaching session, workshop, retreat and curriculum you create)

 

transformationIf you’re keyed in to the self-development and transformation industries, you know that a lot of folks right now are pretty pissed off at the services they’re receiving:

They are complaining that they’re not shifting,
they’re not learning,
they’re not transforming,
and they’re not growing.

Now of course, some of the complaints are total BS (excuse my language).

State of the Union: The Transformational Industry

State of the Union: The Transformational IndustryThe Transformational industry that I love so dearly is rapidly changing right now, and I want you to know what you can do to ensure that you are a practitioner who is totally in integrity, totally fulfilled, totally doing the deep and sacred work you’re meant to be doing…and to ensure that you are one of the practitioners who will actually have staying power as we leap into the next decade of this industry.
