Episode 138: What Happens When You Trust the Process [Transformational Coaching in Action Mini-Series]

“And so I started planning for this and then I just got stuck for days in, what if it’s not a good conversation? What if I don’t do a good job? What if I can’t move into the third phase of transformational coaching?”

Elena Aguilar

Sometimes coaching conversations don’t fall neatly into a framework. Sometimes making progress simply requires making space to process. 

In this third episode of our special Transformational Coaching mini-series, we’re bringing you a slightly different type of conversation. One that demonstrates what happens when you trust the process and follow the conversation where the client needs it to go. In Elena’s reflections before and after the conversation, you’ll gain insight into her planning process, as well as the decisions she makes while coaching.  

This episode is for you if you want: 

  • To hear Transformational Coaching in action 
  • An example of when it’s necessary to depart from the Phases of Transformational Coaching
  • To appreciate the value of having reflective space
  • To hear about how Elena prepared for this conversation and makes decisions during the conversation
