The Coaching Habit

Foundations for Coach-Like Curiosity

Wake up to the power of curiosity. This real-time virtual program focuses on changing long-embedded behaviours. Uncover the reasons why you default to giving advice instead of asking questions and learn why asking more and telling less will make you a stronger, better coach.

Over three virtual sessions of 2 hours each, you'll learn and use practical tools to help shift your behaviour and leave the program having experienced the transformative potential and long-term benefits of staying curious.
