3/13/2017 – Self-Awareness: The Key to Transformative Coaching

Speaker: Billie Frances, M.A., Certified Mindful Coach, Board Certified Coach

Program:  Are you comfortable when clients don’t have goals and action plans?  Are you willing to not hurry clients who encounter snags along the way?  Do you practice being committed but not attached?

In order to powerfully serve our clients, we must fully commit to consistent and constant self-awareness.   We need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, trust the process when we don’t know, and practice patience as clients’ solutions bubble to the surface.

Clients want their coach to deeply listen, to be committed to their transformation, and to give them space to shift their mindset, perspective and experience.  They want a coach who practices presence, trusts the moment and is fully self-aware.


Join this interactive presentation to discovery pathways to become more valuable to your clients as you:

  • Recognize your connectedness to all things
  • Remain attentive, nonjudgmental and accepting
  • Let go of any desire to control, achieve, or resolve


  • Learn the difference between facilitative and transformative coaching
  • More clearly recognize the need to do your own exploration before you can take other people deeper
  • Generate a plan to begin to clear blocks, barriers and biases that keep you from being completely available
