Navigating Coaching Conversations.

How often have you been in a coaching conversation and wondered, “was that useful?”

Spending energy thinking of the next question versus being fully present with the client in front of you?

Feeling like you enjoy metaphors but have no idea how to leverage them in the conversation?

Let’s look at what might open up when you tune your ears to the Power of Metaphors!

This course was truly a gift! Not only that I grew as a coach to better serve my clients, but I also grew as an individual. It expanded my knowledge of the neuroscience of language/metaphors and how they enhance our perception of the world. I notice metaphors so often after this course :) Making conversations a lot easier and interesting.

Do it!! This course will make you a better coach and better listener, and you will be part of an awesome network of like-minded coaches from whom you can learn. That’s been one of the most enjoyable parts of the course – the connections built with other talented coaches from literally all over the world. And that provides different perspectives on the readings and coaching examples Lyssa has put together for the course. It’s all learning!
