WEBINAR: Breaking Down Resistance to Change

While clients coming for coaching are coming because they want to change, there can be seen and unseen resistance that holds the client back. In this 2-hour workshop, we will explore why clients are resistant and why that is a GOOD THING, and how to use that to the client’s advance! We will be exploring this resistance mostly from a positive lifestyle goal-setting perspective but there are similar tools for healthy thinking and emotional coping skills as well we will talk about briefly.

Here you will: Find out how you can best motivate a client, and when attempting to motivate a client is not in their best interest and can have the opposite effect.
