“Coaching the whole person” requires us to be able to access all aspects of ourselves (mind, heart, and body) so we can be a strong developmental partner for our clients. Most of us have a comfort zone, our default modality for coaching. We also have at least one “stretch” zone. Join us for this experiential session and experience your comfort zone and “stretch” zone. Learn and practice how to tap into all three dimensions of mind, heart, and body to gain more flexibility and range in working with clients.
