We each are our own first client.
Because...we can only take clients where we have gone. And if we have blindspots, aspects of ourselves that we can’t see, they are sure to show up in our coaching in ways that are unlikely to serve the client.
We have a responsibility to learn our blindspots, our patterns of sensing, feeling, thinking, and wanting so that they don’t negatively impact our clients.
Through this course, we’ll reveal your internal experience patterns that lie largely outside of your awareness and give you a deeper understanding of what you can’t see about yourself. Using one-on-one coaching specifically for you, we’ll take a deep dive into the specific aspects of your internal experience that affect your coaching. Through this personalized approach, you will begin to discover where and how your unconscious narratives and patterns show up in your coaching and how that affects your ability to work with your clients at a deep, more meaningful level.
By becoming aware of our patterns and their related narratives, we can stop them from getting in the way of our coaching and be present with our clients in all-new ways that transform our coaching and elevates our impact.
Join us for this immersive course to explore your unique individual blindspots and see new possibilities in yourself and your coaching. You’ll experience personalized learning through one to one coaching sessions, live training sessions, and learning partners, and you’ll gain an awareness of the unique blindspots that may be impacting both you and your coaching.

About the EQ Profile
The EQ Profile captures our conditioned internal responses that inform and motivate our behaviors. It reveals the patterns that drive our actions in ways that feel “right” to us in the moment and turn out being obstructive or even destructive for us over time.
We created the EQ Profile to reveal what we don't know and can’t see about ourselves. Because when we are aware of our habituated patterns, we can bring more conscious choices to them, change them and our relationships, and, in doing so, our lives. We don’t have to live out the “default settings” created by those in our past when we had no choice of our own. We can live a life of conscious choice supported by new awareness generated by the EQ Profile.
The EQ Profile is a simulation that captures our internal experience under stress in real-time. It takes about 40 minutes to complete. Once completed, you'll be paired with a Master EQ Practitioner so that you can uncover the most significant awareness available to you from your results.
Tuesdays, February 2, 9, 16, & 23 from 10:30am - 12:00pm PT | 1:30pm - 3:00pm ET.
