What you will learn

Through the Mastering Life’s Energies and Empowering Life’s Energies courses, you gained the first 50% of what it takes to be an effective coach: What we might call a coach’s mind, and a coach’s heart. In this course, you will learn the remaining 50% of the ACE coaching framework, including the following:

Coaching Lens

In your last course, you were introduced to the Coaching Lens. In this course, you will learn to:

  • Identify the precise “symptoms” you exhibit when you are struggling to coach, so you can quickly course correct.
  • Easily identify the true coaching need “underneath” whatever a person presents to you.
Coach’s Ear

Did you know a masterful coach attends to only a fraction of what a person is saying? Replace the exhaustion of tracking every detail for the joy of creating “aha!” moments with ease, by learning to:

  • Quickly discern and unpack the metaphors and viewpoints that are keeping a person “stuck.”
  • Cut through the unimportant details of whatever a person is talking about, by attuning to the “energy of the space.”
  • Get underneath the narrative, however convoluted, to “laser in” on the heart of the matter.
Coach’s Words

What would it be like to catalyze breakthroughs without expending much time, energy, or breath? Make a greater difference with far fewer words, by discovering how to:

  • Joyously engage the “dance” of coaching, instead of ineffectively clinging to a “formula.”
  • Employ a precise subset of language that elicits insight and action — with no need to “process.”
  • See when to use one of three “coaching positions,” so that your client gets the most value from your coaching.
