Change is wonderful and exciting, but is it temporary or permanent? As a survivor and proponent of permanent weight loss, Pat Barone began her coaching career looking for meaningful, permanent change for her clients.
The answer, she discovered, was to go deep.
As she developed her own method of helping clients reconnect to their bodies, she was led to training as a Soul Awareness Healer, which supports and augments her coaching.
Together, let’s explore:
- How to help clients deepen into greater awareness, the type of awareness that promotes permanent change.
- A way to enhance your discernment skills and use your gut with confidence.
- The concepts of clients’ and coach’s energy. What’s really happening beneath the surface?
- Client needs, even intimate ones, which drive behaviors, habits and addictions, and ultimately cause clients to invent their “stories.”
This teleclass addresses the skills relating to five Core Competencies: Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client; Active Listening; Powerful Questioning; Direct Communication; and Creating Awareness. By encouraging coaches to play and explore in the deeper layers of their clients’ responses, this training builds the coach’s confidence and encourages them to trust their intuition and establish trust with their clients. It gives clients a “place” to explore deeper meanings in the discoveries of their coaching experience, and shift learning into permanent change.
Pat Barone, MCC, has defied all the odds life stacked against her and lived to tell her tale. After radically changing the direction of her life and losing almost 100 pounds, she established Catalyst Coaching® in 2001. Sustaining her weight loss since the year 2000 put her among only .005% of people who achieve that level of permanent success.
Although she is a recognized expert in the topic of permanent weight loss, she has defied a trend to niche herself and coached hundreds of clients on four continents as they radically changed their lives. Clients have partnered with her for reinvention, health/fitness, business success, creative endeavors, relationships, growth-oriented divorce, addiction, life transitions, as well as growing coaching practices with meaning.
She was one of the pioneer coaches in Wisconsin, introducing the process to many companies and leaders, and is often seen as NBC15’s on-air life coach. She has been featured in articles in the Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Shape, HealthZette Magazine, Huffington Post, Women’s Health and Health Magazine.
