These days it seems everyone is being hit by drama, both personally and professionally. Our coaching clients are often stressed out and stuck in drama. We coaches get stuck, too. We desperately need a simple, yet profound method to free both ourselves and our clients from the dreaded drama that keeps everyone from being their best selves.
When coaches and their clients shift their focus from problems to outcomes, something amazing happens in the coaching relationship. Reactive drama is transformed into dreams and results that really matter. Clients become engaged and open to unlimited possibilities. They welcome change as the fuel that empowers great outcomes.

- The 5 Coaching Miscues that, if not understood and redirected, may undermine your coaching brilliance;
- The 8 Principles and insights for partnering with your client as they cultivate their Creator essence and bring forward their best self;
- The 3 Vital Questions 5-Step Action Planning model that supports your clients to take generative and creative steps that will support them to transform their old patterns of drama.

- How to shift from problems to outcomes;
- New awareness of your own inner-drama roles and how to escape them;
