Yes, Ask that Nosy Question! [Part 10 of 13]

Here's the Recap:

Welcome to Season 1, Episode 10 of Master Coach Mindset™ with Rhonda Britten. In today’s episode, I discuss…

Be willing to feel uncomfortable and ask the question that is moving through you, whether you feel it applies or not. You might feel nosy. You might think, “Who am I to ask that” but ask anyway.

Because you must be willing to face your own fears, hesitations, worries, concerns, uncomfortableness in order to be of greater service to your client. To be that place that is a clear channel to be used by that thing that is bigger than us.

Whether you call it God. Whether you call it intuition. Whether you call it spirit. Whether you call it universe. Whether you call it light or energy. Whatever you call it.

But that thing that interconnects us all.

That’s why today we’re discovering line eight of the Master Coach Manifesto: “A Master Coach isn’t afraid to ask how much money a client makes, when was the last time they had sex or any other relevant question. It is not nosy. It’s coaching.”

Listen to the episode to find out more…

  • The Perfect 'Coaching Skills' Polish
    June 4, 2018 by 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!
    May 31, 2018 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 Deal
    May 24, 2018 by 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 insights
    May 24, 2018 by 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 Insightful
    May 23, 2018 by 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!
    May 22, 2018 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.

    If you want to uplevel your coaching to a place it has never been before, you MUST listen to Rhonda! Her insight, approach and years of experience are brilliant. She has changed the way I coach people of all ages in all areas of their lives...amazing!!!

  • No coach should miss this!
    February 13, 2018 by Fanofotherspiderwebgames from United States

    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.
