5 ways to improve your listening

During my career as a transformational life & business coach and , speaker, facilitator and trainer, I’ve noticed that one of the most important variables that determines how much TRANSFORMATION and IMPACT my clients experience is my ability, and also my client’s ability to LISTEN.

The Painful Error Most People Make When Goal Setting

Coaching Himself out of Engineering
