One of the most important things coaches bring about in sessions is clarity—what matters, what’s most important, what would be different if change occurs. Since clarity comes up over and over in coaching and is core to the work coaches do, Gary Wood joins us today to share and explain his ground-breaking Clarity & Momentum Model.

Coaches work with clients to help them create positive changes—in relationships, careers, finances, self-care practices, and more. Often our clients have lots of energy when it comes to dreaming and designing the changes they want to make, but they begin to lose motivation when it comes to long term implementation. Today, we’ve got solutions to help you support your clients in making changes that last.
