Coaching Through the Discomfort Zone: How to Have the Guts to Create Breakthrough Moments
Have you ever asked these questions?
What do I do when my client feels stuck but I’m not sure what to say?
I am told to be more present so I can hear what the client really needs, but I am not sure what I can do beyond what I’m already doing. What else can I do to be more present and listen more deeply?
Being direct with my clients often triggers their emotions. How can I be more comfortable with both direct communications and allowing the emotional reactions of my clients?
The purpose of the session is to give coaches a concrete way to spark amazing change. In this scenario, discomfort doesn’t mean “bad.” In fact, if you become good at creating the discomfort zone with challenging reflections and powerful questions, your coaching will result in more opportunities for profound new awareness.
Session Takeaways :
Using recent brain research, learn how the process of “breakthrough” actually works in the brain and how you can best facilitate this process when coaching.
Practice listening from the three major processing centers in your body so you know what questions to ask that will trigger the brain to formulate a new awareness.
Explore practices to manage your discomfort in uncomfortable conversations.

A mindset of ease and comfort as coach has a shadow side. It is complacency and habit. Every person possesses the capacity to be free and at choice about our relationship to life in any moment. Spontaneous moments allow us to transcend role and identity to be sovereign as coach. This webinar will explore being sovereign as coach through reflection and discussion on three central questions:
What is known to you and visible to clients as the source of your artistry as coach?
What inner permission is required for you to be willing to be disturbed so that you may explore and experiment with concepts and methods that challenge your preferences, habits and biases about coaching?
What will increase the degree of sovereignty you choose to bring to your coaching interactions?
To go beyond with clients and foster a sustainable pathway for excellence and breakthrough experience in life, engage boldly and coach purposefully as a sovereign coach.
