Here's the Recap:

Welcome to Season 1, Episode 8 of Master Coach Mindset™ with Rhonda Britten. In today’s episode, I discuss …

Line eight of the Master Coach Manifesto: “A Master Coach treats their client as if they are wholeheartedly doing their best, not theoretically but in reality.”

Believing your client is doing the best they can is not as easy as it sounds. Cheerleading isn’t enough. Commitment doesn’t mean they will do it. Labeling your client resistant or difficult will not inspire them into action.

When it may not be obvious, how can you tell if a client is willing to shift and if they’re making a shift? Listen to the episode to find out more…

I now have a new framework to look at my coaching, and that new perspective brings me a new opportunity to connect more fully with my clients. It's given me an opportunity to hold a mirror up to my own coaching and say, "Oh,well there are some gaps here," and I can fill those in with what I've learned from Rhonda and the tools that she has provided me are really a good fit for things that I didn't even think about but I know that I can more fully serve my clients with them.
