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.

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 5 of Master Coach Mindset™ with Rhonda Britten. Speak as if they are Innocent. Part 2.

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?”

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.
