There’s nothing more frustrating to me than hearing a coach talk about their ‘resistant client’ or ‘difficult client.’ There’s no such thing.

Here’s the truth:
Your client isn’t purposely sabotaging themselves, your client isn't purposely resisting, your client isn't purposely doing anything. They're not purposely wrecking their lives, they're not purposely not trusting themselves, they're not purposely making bad choices.

When you know that in your heart and live it in your being, your coaching will change forever. Oh and so will your life. Seeing innocence is THAT important.

That’s why today line nine of the Master Coach Manifesto is so critical:
"A Master Coach speaks to their client's innocence, creating safety and deep healing, allowing their client to trust themselves again."
