Without exception, there’s one common denominator at the core of every single coaching session you hold. It’s the most essential part of that coaching session, and it’s something you have complete control over. What is it? It’s you! Your use of self, your awareness of yourself, and your self-management as a child of God, a person, and a coach.
In this episode, we dive into a deep exploration of who you are, how you show up as a coach, and how you differentiate yourself from your client in a way that’s beneficial to you and to them.
