Speak As If They Are Innocent [Part 2]
Here’s the Recap:
Seeing innocence in your Client is not always easy. Seeing it in your self is doubly hard.
That’s why I’m sharing Part 2 of the #1 most important coaching skill you must embrace to be the best Coach (and person) you can possibly be: Speak as if they are innocent.
Recently I was coaching a therapist on how to incorporate coaching skills into her practice. When we got to this skill, she asked me, “Do you just assume your Client’s are innocent?” I told her no. I KNOW they are innocent.
Most people do not set out to ruin their day but they do nonetheless. Most people do not plan on beating themselves up. But again, they do it.
Innocence is the cure-all, the salve that heals your heart and wakes you up to the truth of who you are.
Innocence changes everything. Are you willing to embrace your innocence?
What You Will Discover:
- Different ways judgment may be seeping in to your Sessions
- Disempowering questions and their effect on your Clients
- How to be present in your conversations
- The rate of listening versus speaking matters
- The power of eliminating “you” before a sentence
- Potential roadblocks to seeing your Client’s innocence
- Question of the Day: “What’s the best way to respond in a Session when a Client asks, ‘How are you?’ or starts to chit-chat?”

- The Perfect 'Coaching Skills' Polishby jecaby from United States
I’ve been Coaching for 3+ years, though with lots of life changes in this past year, my skills have become dull + dusty. I definitely needed a refresher + was thrilled to hear in Episode 1 a few simple tips to do just that ... things I know + have forgotten + things I’ve never heard another Trainer or Coaching School teach. Rhonda is the real deal. If you’re looking to cut to the chase with your Coaching + your clients, subscribe, listen + learn from the very best in the business.
- As usual, Rhonda knocks it out of the park!by Jill of MN from United States
This is gold for all coaches, no matter where you received training! As one of Rhonda’s CFLCs, I love the review and freshening up of my coaching skills. This is a must listen for anyone calling themselves a coach because if you aren’t doing this for yourself and your clients, you need to be. This is a great starting point and I know it will inspire many to apply for training from Rhonda and the Fearless Living Institute. This work changed my life and I use it every single day personally and with my clients.
- Real Dealby Whimzee<3 from United States
Just as a caveat, I am a self-admitted Rhonda junkie. The reason for that is because she’s the real deal. The information she provides has substance and value. Her work changes lives (I am living proof and one of thousands of lives she’s improved). If you want to become a better coach, or even just a better person, and learn practical tools and tips, I highly recommend this podcast.
- Fabulous inspiration and insightsby Spark Your Being from United States
I just finished Episode 3, and I want more! This podcast dives deep into the art of coaching and is delivered with the heart and humor that keeps it compelling and fun. I’ve been coaching for more than a decade, and I come away from each episode with new ideas for my clients. Keep them coming, Rhonda!
- Very Insightfulby DKitty1986 from United States
Rhonda has a way of clearly and concisely articulating the concepts. When she talks, it just seems to “click.” Extremely skilled coach and a must listen for anyone in the industry.
- If you are a professional coach, you NEED this!by Vicegarcia from United States
Rhonda is teaching the ART of coaching. It's not just asking questions. There are nuances and subtleties that most coaching schools do not teach you. If you truly want to be a master coach, you need to hear what Rhonda is teaching. Set aside your experience and what you think you already know, and listen. Apply it. And see how it up-levels your coaching.

Want the real deal? Rhonda's depth of coaching and coach training is the best. She will challenge your assumptions about EVERYTHING you know about coaching and about yourself. Well worth listening and learning.
