Several years ago I didn’t know coaching existed.

For many years, I was in a trance. I call it the trance of chasing conventional success.

Overworked, underpaid, anxious, lost, overwhelmed, disorganised, and unhappy living the life and leading the business I’d created. Oh, and blaming everyone and everything around me for ‘the way things were’.

A professional victim.

My first coach encouraged me to open my eyes and see how I’d created everything. It was painful but it guided me to making progress.

Seeing I was the creator of everything I moaned and groaned about empowered me to create something different — a life I love leading.

And now that’s what I do with my clients as a professional coach.

Without discovering coaching my default future wouldn’t have been great.

But, enough about me … I have a real treat for you in store!

There are so many miscommunications about what coaching is and how it works I had a desire to help educate people about the ‘truth’ when it came to coaching.

As part of this project, I was fortunate enough to interview my coach, Steve Chandler, to help ‘demystify coaching’.

Steve’s a very lovely, warm, intelligent, wise and inspiring human being and has helped me no end in several areas of my life and business. He’s guided many of the world’s best coaches over the last few decades and is known as ‘The Godfather of Coaching’. Steve’s also authored over 40 books that have been translated into over 25 languages (and he didn’t write his first book until he was 49!).

His personal success coaching, public speaking and business consulting have been used by CEOs, top professionals, major universities, and over 30 Fortune 500 companies. He has twice won the national Audio of the Year award from King Features Syndicate. A popular guest on TV and radio talk shows, Steve Chandler has recently been called “the most powerful public speaker in America today.”

This video is only 45 minutes and is full of insight, experience, and wisdom.

If you have any interest at all in personal development, growth, transformation or coaching then take the time to watch this (and explore Steve’s books, they are wonderful).

Amongst other things, Steve discusses:

  • The distinction between information vs. transformation
  • The lies we tell ourselves
  • How coaching allows people to move from a default future to something completely different
  • And much, much more!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did co-creating it. You can find more about Steve by visiting www.stevechandler.com.

Love and wellness,

David.
