    The Power of Words #229

    The Power of Words #229

    Neuroscience is teaching us that words hold tremendous power to either ignite positive growth or slow our forward movement. As coaches, we want to pay attention to the words that our clients use and to thoughtfully choose our own words as we summarize, reflect, reframe, and ask curious questions.

    In today's episode, you'll learn how to use words to:
    • Create powerful shifts • Highlight important insights • Notice hidden mindsets • Uncover negative self-talk

    About Dale Roberts
    With all of the unusual accomplishments Dale has achieved during his lifetime, from a successful career as a financial advisor, to professional speaking, to commercial acting, to handwriting analysis, Dale has always had the sense that there was something more he was "called" to do.
    That call began to become clear when a door opened for Dale in 2003, with the opportunity to experience the "Life Plan" process, an intense two day, one-on-one session which is based on Tom Paterson's excellent book "Living the Life You Were Meant to Live." Life Planning takes a person deep into exploration of one's life purpose, and Dale was so intrigued by that process that in 2004 he became a Life Plan Facilitator. He has facilitated the Life Plan process for many clients over the past fifteen years and says, “I have never felt more called!"
    But somehow Dale felt there was still one more "piece of the puzzle" missing. That piece, he discovered, was Professional Life Coaching. Dale received his training and certification as a Professional Life Coach through Professional Christian Coaching Institute, and the puzzle was complete. His 30 years of working in financial services, honing his handwriting analysis skills, practicing the Life Plan process, writing, speaking, coaching, and volunteering in ministry to men and families affected by disability, all came together to bring Dale to this point in time.
