How to Create Transformative Moments of Meeting with Your Clients - Dr. David B. Drake
How to Create Transformative Moments of Meeting with Your Clients
Clients cannot change if they cannot cope. To get the best results from coaching, they need to first move into a mindful state. Otherwise, it is like trying to build a house without a foundation — it washes or blows away in the first storm.
In this session, we will explore (1) the basics of attachment theory as it relates to developing adults, (2) the four levels of neural regulation that are needed to change behavior, and (3) the four key moments in coaching and how to use them to create transformative experiences with your clients.
Putting mindfulness in motion increases clients’ ability to transfer what they learned in coaching to their lives and their work. Case studies will be shared so you can see this work in action along with practical tips you can use to incorporate this approach in your coaching practice.
