Program Summary

Looking back on their lives, people often wish they had been braver, had trusted themselves more, and had taken more chances. In short, they wish they had been more courageous and lived a more rewarding life.

We often know what we want and even how to get it -- but we don’t act because we fear the consequences of taking a chance. It seems dangerous to risk our current comfort in hope of an uncertain reward. So we settle for the status quo instead making a big change, taking a calculated chance, or venturing beyond our comfort zones.

In this coaching program, your clients will learn how to take courageous action and claim the rewards they desire.

To begin, clients will confront their natural inclination towards inaction. Next, they will learn how to address the negative self-talk that holds them back. Finally, they will learn how to strengthen their commitment to action and how to overcome the resistance they will encounter along the way.

Learning to act courageously is a big task -- but with activities and guidance offered in their program, your clients will take a big step forward into the life they truly desire.
