    BONUS: How to elevate your coaching by understanding your clients’ context

    BONUS: How to elevate your coaching by understanding your clients’ context

    As coaches, we know that our thoughts create our results, right? But in order to coach our clients effectively on their thoughts, we have to understand the CONTEXT from which these thoughts emerged. Someone whose cultural history involves persecution and multigenerational trauma may not resonate with the coaching that “everything will happen as it’s meant to,” just as someone who has learned explicitly and implicitly that their sexuality is wrong or bad won’t respond to coaching that does not take this history into account.

    In this episode, you will learn how approaching your clients with radical curiosity and learning to spot how their thoughts have been shaped by their cultural context will enable you to coach clients with lived experiences that differ from your own. In this special episode, guest coaches Rachel Hart and Dr. Sonia Wright join Kara and I for a conversation about why understanding your clients’ context is so important, and how committing to curiosity and nonjudgment will help you navigate your own blind spots as a coach.

    BONUS: Coaching tools aren’t one-size-fits-all (and that’s a great thing)

    BONUS: Coaching tools aren’t one-size-fits-all (and that’s a great thing)

    Many coaches believe that once they become certified, they will be equipped with the tools to coach anyone on anything. It’s a lovely thought, but maybe not so helpful when you’re in your tenth session with a client who just stares at you blankly as you try to explain, for the 50th time, how their thoughts are creating their results and why that’s a great thing. While there are certainly powerful frameworks out there, the coaching principles we learn aren’t one-size-fits-all.

    One single tool or framework isn’t going to work for everybody, and that’s ok. In this episode, Kara and I discuss how to bring more openness, nuance, and discernment into your coaching, so you can coach clients of different backgrounds and lived experiences effectively.

    BONUS: How realizing ‘it’s all made up’ will make you a better coach

    BONUS: How realizing ‘it’s all made up’ will make you a better coach

    Coaching tools didn’t descend from the heavens. They were developed by humans whose social context impacted the way they saw the world and their clients, including what they even viewed as a “problem” to be solved in the first place. In other words, those coaching modalities that you know and love? Yeah, those were made up. 

    Before you abandon all meaning and run off into the woods, tune into this episode to learn why understanding this is exactly what will elevate your coaching. Kara and I will discuss how learning the intellectual history of modern coaching concepts and embracing the subjectivity of coaching modalities will help you deliver powerful coaching to clients with radically different backgrounds and beliefs than you.

    156. Healing your nervous system for authentic marketing with Sally Hardie

    When it comes to marketing, without establishing nervous system safety in your body, you will always be out of touch with your full genius, creativity, and intuition.
    To shed some light on the importance of creating nervous system safety, I have Sally Hardie on the show. She’s a brilliant coach with a psychotherapy background who has an excellent grasp on the central nervous system and how it works. 
    Join Sally and me as we talk about why marketing can be so triggering to our nervous systems, how to know when your body is not in safety and the steps you can take to move in the opposite direction, and why thought work can at times be a toxin we’re weaponizing against ourselves when we’re feeling activated.
