Mindful Coaching is not just a skill; it's a movement.

In a world obsessed with "getting more done," many feel the urgent need to help people in a more profound way.

And many of us have found that the more mindful we are in our life and work, the better or experience of life and the quality of our work. We make better decisions and inspire deeper connections in ourselves and others because we are committed to being more deeply connected with ourselves and the world.

In becoming a professional coach and coach trainer, I experienced (and still do!) a great deal of hype and predatory marketing targeting coaches. So, I created The Mindful Coach Association. A safe haven and community of mindful professionals where we can connect, collaborate, and support each other in our learning, lives, and success. Free from the constant drone of mastermind pitches and promises of instant wealth.

As the founder of the association, I talk to a lot of coaches.

One day, after listening to a particularly inspired coach doing great work with the LGBTQ+ community and also hearing from another working with immigrant populations to help them adapt to a new culture, I felt like wow - "People really need to hear about this work."

But there is no venue for coaches who are doing amazing, important work but aren't publishing books, doing podcasts, TV shows, selling out masterminds, and "crushing 7 figures."

And if you take the many thousands of inspired, courageous coaches doing great work with challenged populations - this is a mighty force indeed - but one that has no voice.

The Mindful Coach Podcast was created to give a voice to those incredible coaches whose work is unheard and unheralded.

Now you can hear their stories of great work that is going on in the world, work that you may not otherwise encounter -and be inspired as I have by the collective goodness that's blossoming in the world.

And you are a part of this work!

Beyond these stories, the podcast is a gateway to a vibrant community - The Mindful Coach Association (https://mindfulcoachassociation.com) Here, you'll have the opportunity to engage in enriching conversations with our guests and fellow mindful professionals during our weekly meetings. It's a safe, collaborative space where individual actions culminate into a powerful, unified force. No upsells or pitches.

Moreover, this podcast is designed to aid in the growth of your practice. We introduce you to exceptional services and cutting-edge technologies, including AI, to enhance your productivity and success. Additionally, a coach is always growing their skills so you'll gain invaluable insights and practical tips from experts in new and powerful coaching modalities.

    Elevate Your Sessions with Full Spectrum Listening

    Elevate Your Sessions with Full Spectrum Listening

    In this episode, I'm diving into a topic that can truly elevate not only your coaching but also the quality of your life overall.
    This is crucial skill for professional coaches and anyone in a helping role.
    It's about a skill that goes beyond active listening - it's called full spectrum listening. This technique involves engaging all your senses to pay attention on purpose, in the moment, and without judgment. And it goes places you probably don't expect.
    Here's a breakdown of the topics and where they are in the episode:
    00:00:03 - Introduction to Full Spectrum Listening
    Brett Hill introduces the concept of full spectrum listening as a refined form of active listening that engages all senses to pay attention in conversations, both professionally and personally.
    00:02:36 - Importance of How Things Are Spoken
    Hill highlights the significance of the way words are spoken, including pacing, language, emotional intensity, and delivery, emphasizing that these factors contribute to a different experience beyond just the words themselves.
    00:06:46 - Spatial Dynamics and Proximity
    Hill discusses the importance of spatial dynamics and proximity in communication, sharing a personal experience of understanding personal boundary space and cultural influences on physical proximity in conversations.
    00:11:53 - Dual Awareness and Self-Reflection
    Hill delves into the concept of dual awareness, where active listening involves paying attention to both the client and one's own responses, thoughts, feelings, and sensations, emphasizing that this self-reflection is an integral part of full spectrum listening.
    00:14:28 - Human Senses and Evolution
    Hill explores the idea that humans have senses beyond the traditional five senses, suggesting that there are capacities and senses related to group dynamics and reading the room, indicating that these abilities may not be fully developed but are still significant in communication.
    00:15:42 - The Power of Group Sense
    Brett discusses the concept of group sense and shares his experience with Matrix leadership training. He emphasizes the unique intelligence of a group and the value of developing senses for group dynamics.
    00:17:20 - The Role of Coach Intuition
    Brett highlights the importance of coach intuition, describing it as a valuable resource in facilitating someone else's process. He emphasizes the need to test and validate intuitive impressions to ensure their usefulness.
    00:19:18 - Using Subtle Senses
    Brett delves into the use of subtle senses in coaching, acknowledging the potential for specific information to arise through these senses. He emphasizes the value of these senses in deepening understanding and fast-tracking coaching sessions.
    00:20:39 - Deep Listening and Mindful Coaching
    Brett discusses the significance of deep listening and mindful coaching, emphasizing the importance of being fully present with the client in the moment. He highlights the need for non-judgmental, open listening to fully understand the client's experience.
    00:23:51 - Enhancing Client Value
    Brett underscores the value of paying exceptional attention in coaching, distinguishing it as a unique and enriching way to relate to others. He encourages coaches to open up their senses to provide exceptional value for their clients and enhance their own satisfaction.
