The Importance of Seeing Clients Innocence [Part 09 of 13]

Here's the Recap:

Welcome to Season 1, Episode 9 of Master Coach Mindset™ with Rhonda Britten. In today’s episode, I discuss…

One of my biggest pet peeves is hearing a coach label their client a: ‘resistant client’ or ‘difficult client.’ That isn’t even possible once you understand how fear works and the power of innocence.

When you see through the eyes of innocence, you will soon believe that your client is never purposely sabotaging themselves or being resistant, or hurting their chances for success. They’re not purposely wrecking their lives or making bad choices.

That’s why today we are focusing on line nine of the Master Coach Manifesto:
“A Master Coach speaks to their client’s innocence, creating safety and deep healing, allowing their client to trust themselves again.”
