The book launched in September last year, and it is the most comprehensive and instructional guide ever written for understanding what to expect in the coaching process. It is the definitive publication missing in the coaching profession—a profession altering the way we live in the world. After reading this book, your clients will show up to the experience more prepared, creating more impact and significant results. Everybody wins in this equation.


In our conversation, you will learn how to:

  • Ensure that your clients or potential clients never come into a coaching session “cold” and unprepared.
  • Reduce the ambiguity between the coach and the client’s roles and responsibilities.
  • Create powerful agreements with your clients at the outset of your relationship.
  • Take more responsibility for your own coaching with your coach.
  • Understand what character traits make your clients more coachable and how to help your clients become more coachable.
  • Learn what may derail a coaching session.
  • Understand how commitment can alter your client’s world. The benefits of this session are innumerable, but here are a few possibilities: Create more client renewals, Learn how not only to be a better coach but a better client and Give yourself a competitive edge with your new potential clients.
