Description of Webinar

Transformation is caused by a shift in perception. The most effective way to facilitate your client in experiencing a transformational shift is from the inside out.

  • Inside is the WHO (who you are)
  • Outside is the WHAT (circumstances)

Changing the nature of your questions from WHAT to  WHO facilitates the client in raising their awareness of their relationship to their “issue,” learning more about themselves, and gaining greater access to their innate qualities, such as strengths, empowering beliefs, core values - their greatness!

  • Take your client “deeper” to discover their underlying issue
  • Listen for and reflect your client’s greatness with the four “WHO” Tools
  • Shift the nature of your questions from problem solving to new and deeper learning for your client

Methodology: Presentation by teleclass. Fran will:

  • Co-create the learning by presenting empowering concepts with clear examples
  • Engage participants by inviting their questions, sharing, and comments
  • Provide a demo with a volunteer
  • Hand out will be provided
