    Creating with Fun

    Wisdom has ways of telling us to be kinder to ourselves. Of course, we don’t always listen, until we have to. Nicole shares her story of reaching burnout and subsequently dropping the pressure of working hard and shifting to simply having fun. Now creating in whatever feels fun to do while deeply listening to what moves her, she is enjoying a much more prosperous coaching life dancing in a blend of wisdom and playful humanness.

    Here’s a little more about Nicole
    Life Mentor, Nicole Barton, is something of a unicorn within the self-help industry for her candid notion that nobody needs self-help. She is a breath of fresh air in her admission that while playing and dancing in anything that leads us into soul-led expression is beautiful to shift us from our heads and into our hearts, none of these practices are prerequisites to peace. Nicole supports people to embody their own wisdom through embracing self-rediscovery, via her online summit, group programs, one-to-ones, events and retreats, and is working on her first book.

    Experimenting with Fun

    If you would like to turn your Podcast idea into a reality, check out how I can support you at philg.com/launchpod

    Just how much fun can you have building a coaching practice? Is following your joy really a fruitful strategy? Should we listen when we think we won’t enjoy doing something? Do you need to figure out who your ideal client actually is?

    In this delightful episode my previous client Regina reveals her answers to these questions, shares some of her insights and the impact of our time together on her journey in building a Coaching Life.

    Here’s a little more about Regina
    Regina Kleinhenz is a heart-centered coach, speaker, Yoga teacher, former Systemic therapist and teacher. Before she came across the 3 principles in 2017, she thought being a comedienne would be a dream come true, only to find out that that desire had been a coping mechanism owed to a misunderstanding of who she thought she was or needed to be.

    She likes connecting and working with other people in a humorous way and what she’s most passionate about is seeing the sparkle in people’s eyes (re-)appear, when they get in touch with who they really are.

    Regina works with individuals but also speaks in organizations, pointing people towards the source of clarity, wellbeing and ease. She particularly enjoys working with entrepreneurs and leaders.

    The focus of her work lies in

    - 1:1 coaching for entrepreneurs and leaders
    - keynotes and workshops pointing towards the inside-out understanding and mental health for companies and institutions
    - transformational retreats and intensives for individuals and groups

    She recently became a member of Business Network International (BNI) and is very much looking forward to becoming a certified Clarity Coach through Jamie Smart’s Clarity Academy in 2020.

    Regina loves Yoga, comedy and improv theater. She now lives in Stuttgart, spending her leisure time with her partner Matthias and his children Jana and Alina.

    070 Dr Amy Johnson - Being Human

    Being Human

    It was Amy’s book ’Being Human’ written over six years ago, that introduced me to her work, and whilst she has published another great book since then, her willingness to show, explore and share what it is to be human remains.

    It seems Amy was destined to be in this work, reading spiritual literature during childhood and being introduced to coaching methodologies in her teen years. In a typically warm, humble and very human conversation, Amy shares the story of her evolution through Psychology training, her own personal challenges, authoring three books, into coaching and running the Little School of Big Change.

    Here’s a little more about Amy

    Amy Johnson, PhD is a psychologist, coach, author, and speaker who shares a groundbreaking new approach that helps people find true, lasting freedom from unwanted habits via insight rather than willpower. She is author of Being Human (2013), and The Little Book of Big Change: The No-Willpower Approach to Breaking Any Habit (2016). In 2017 she opened The Little School of Big Change, an online school that has helped hundreds of people find freedom from anxiety and habits and live a more peaceful life.
    Johnson has been a regularly featured expert on The Steve Harvey Show and Oprah.com, as well as in The Wall Street Journal and Self magazine.
