This book is a highly actionable guide for coaches to change the narratives holding clients back from resolving problems, realizing dreams, and living into their strongest and most joyous selves. Breakthrough Coaching provides methods, resources, and exercises to help you activate immedi­ate and sustainable shifts in perspective and behavior. The purpose of the book is to light the way on your path of coaching mastery.

Lightbbulb moments are touching, surprising, or inspiring insights characterized by the intensity of feeling that often accompanies a new way of seeing a situation or oneself. The "new sight" provides an image or idea that was previously inaccessible. The revelations are transformational, often changing your client's views of themselves as well as their situations.

The book also serves experienced coaches who seek to be more compassionately and fully present to create the powerful energetic connection that provokes insights to emerge.

Listen to Breakthrough Coaching to unlock access to five modules of learning and discovery, nineteen resource tools and five practice exercises, coaching case studies and examples, and so much more.
