After 12 years, over 4,000 hours of one-on-one coaching, presenting to thousands of people in groups, facilitating change in corporations and businesses, I am just now beginning to truly appreciate what really works, and what doesn’t in empowering others to change and transform.
My classroom (and coaching room) of life tells me this – most people will never change much because they don’t really want to. I know this sounds slightly negative and controversial, but it is true. They will talk it, dabble in it, and make idle commitments toward it, even invest a fortune in others to help them get there. But, at the end of the day, do they live it to the max.
Over these first few musings, I wish to share my simple and hopefully real thoughts and experiences about what does work and why the other stuff just doesn’t. I hope you enjoy and truly do have the courage to change.
Anthony Robins once famously said, “The only time people will change is when they have a near death experience”. I agree this is one powerful way to get change, but who really wants to wait until this happens. I am convinced there are other pathways to change, as I have seen them firsthand. But ya gotta want it bad enough!!
If you would like to add your thoughts about what your experience about what really works subscribe to my twitter and let me know. I would love to hear your real experience of what created change or transformation in you.
