If you want to compete in the coaching industry, you need to be GOOD at coaching.
But there are some things you simply couldn’t know when you were training to be a coach - and while it’s tempting to keep studying, take another course, or dive into a certification program, you really need to build the practical skills and confidence to handle whatever your clients throw at you.

She knows what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and anxious about coaching in the moment, and will teach you why shifting your mindset around your own abilities as a coach will make all the difference.
If you’ve got clients but want to become the absolute best coach you can be, you’ll find answers, advice and support here. Learn more at lindsaydotzlafcoaching.com!

158. Coaching Integrity: How to Decide What It Means to You
Integrity is a word that gets thrown around a lot in the coaching industry. Living in accordance with my deepest values is how I like to think about being in integrity as a coach.

Lindsay creates a container for exponential growth
I am an OG coach lab member so I have had a ton of exposure to Lindsay and her coaching. Her ability to create a safe space and give gentle and firm guidance to coaches is amazing.
