Episode Date
4: Coaching Tools Aren’t One-Size-Fits-All (and That’s a Great Thing)
38:08

Many coaches believe that once they become certified, they will be equipped with the tools to coach anyone on anything. It’s a lovely thought, but maybe not so helpful when you’re in your tenth session with a client who just stares at you blankly as you try to explain, for the 50th time, how their thoughts are creating their results and why that’s a great thing. While there are certainly powerful frameworks out there, the coaching principles we learn aren’t one-size-fits-all. One single tool or framework isn’t going to work for everybody, and that’s ok. In this episode, Kara Loewentheil and Simone Seol will discuss how to bring more openness, nuance, and discernment into your coaching, so you can coach clients of different backgrounds and lived experiences effectively.

3: How Realizing ‘It’s All Made Up’ Will Make You a Better Coach
43:36

Coaching tools didn’t descend from the heavens. They were developed by humans whose social context impacted the way they saw the world and their clients, including what they even viewed as a “problem” to be solved in the first place. In other words, those coaching modalities that you know and love? Yeah, those were made up. Before you abandon all meaning and run off into the woods, tune into this episode to learn why understanding this is exactly what will elevate your coaching. Kara Loewentheil and Simone Seol will discuss how learning the intellectual history of modern coaching concepts and embracing the subjectivity of coaching modalities will help you deliver powerful coaching to clients with radically different backgrounds and beliefs than you.

1: Elevating the Coaching Conversation by Embracing Complexity in Your Marketing
34:07

A lot of life coaches think they have to dumb down their marketing in order to sell. But doing so not only denies you the opportunity to show up truthfully in your business, it also underestimates the intelligence of your clients and limits the capacity of the industry to engage in nuanced conversations about the complexities of being human.

 

In this episode, Kara Loewentheil and Simone Seol will discuss the marketing mindset they each used to create multi-million dollar businesses that are every bit as multifaceted as they are. Tune in to learn how you can elevate the coaching conversation - and your business - by embracing complexity in your marketing.
