Relationships are a major factor in coaching any client. Relationships affect quality of life, which affects your clients’ businesses. Even if it’s not what you’re focusing on, relationships should be positively addressed at appropriate points during your coaching.

But how do you know the best approach to addressing relationships? How do you know what to say? How do you overcome your own insecurities? And, more importantly, how do you avoid making mistakes? These questions and more are what my business partner, Aimée Gianni, and I talk about in this podcast episode. Aimée also happens to my sister, so we can definitely speak from a place of nurturing a simultaneous personal and business relationship.
