Here’s the Recap:

Welcome to Season 1, Episode 12 of Master Coach Mindset™ with Rhonda Britten. In today’s episode, I discuss…

Our coaching is a reflection of how masterfully we have embodied our own feelings, intentions, and insights. The problem is it’s easy for feelings to override your best intentions. Especially since insights and ah-ha’s can give you a false sense of awakening.

Here’s the truth: Your head will not get you where you want to go. You must use your whole body, heart, spirit, and mind to move past your past.

That’s why thinking is nice but without a visceral experience of your very visceral problem, things will not change. (But you already know that!)

Line twelve of the Master Coach Manifesto: “A Master Coach supports the client in staying centered in their heart because they know a visceral problem can only be solved by a visceral solution.”

Moments You Don’t Want to Miss!

  • [spp-timestamp time=”3:30″] – A visceral problem can only be solved by a visceral solution
  • [spp-timestamp time=”5:34″] – A problem isn’t solved because they think better
  • [spp-timestamp time=”6:07″] – Get them out of their head and into their heart
  • [spp-timestamp time=”6:53″] – When you’re client is confused, you’re getting somewhere
  • [spp-timestamp time=”7:43″] – Crying, silence, “what?!” are all powerful visceral cues
  • [spp-timestamp time=”9:16″] – Don’t make your clients confusion your fault
  • [spp-timestamp time=”10:40″] – If you only use this, you’re not trusting yourself
  • [spp-timestamp time=”10:59″] – Question of the Day: “Rhonda, coaching is a new, but rapidly growing field. Some certification programs are yearlong, some are six months, and some are just one weekend, which seems crazy to me. What should we look for in a coaching program to ensure the most confidence in our skills when it’s over? Like looking for the right college.”

About Rhonda

As the first Life Coach on reality television in the world, I’ve won an Emmy for changing lives on the hit NBC show Starting Over, named its “most valuable player” by The New York Times, and heralded as “America’s Favorite Life Coach.”

To date, I’ve altered lives in over 600 episodes of reality television and authored four bestselling books, 150K copies of my #1 hit – Fearless Living – have been sold and I’ve been on the couch with Oprah more than once.

Proud to be the Founder of the Fearless Living Institute (Courses & Workshops devoted to mastering all kinds of fear) and Head of the Life Coach Certification Program (called the “Ivy League of Life Coach Training”). We will show you how to have the clarity, confidence, courage – and yes, compassion – to live and coach fearlessly. Welcome home.
