As a coach, you work with real people, dealing with real situations, real struggles with change, all within the messiness of real life…
If you can’t help people overcome these real life challenges, you’ll struggle to feel confident that you can help your clients get the results they truly want (and deserve). And your clients will feel stuck in the cycle of quick fixes that give them temporary hope—without lasting change.
This is why great coaches understand the complexities of how behavior and change works and why, so they can move people toward their goals—even when motivation and inspiration fall short.
How Do We Change Our Behavior is a deep-dive into understanding why we battle change, even when it’s what we want most, and how you can sharpen your change-making skills to help your clients overcome obstacles and move forward in a healthy direction.
A deep understanding of how habits are built and why we do the things we do so you can help your clients choose the change they want and work productively towards it.
Why common client challenges like low motivation and stressful lifestyles are actually incredible coaching opportunities—and how you can leverage change psychology to help clients move in a healthy direction.
Why relying on willpower, external motivation, and ‘hacks’ will never produce sustainable change and the “deep change” concept to focus on instead.
A behind-the-scenes look at the coaching tools, resources, assessments, and tools Precision Nutrition has used to help over 100,000 clients achieve jaw-dropping results—that last.
Specific skills, practices, and actions that facilitate behavior-change, helping improve client results and retention.
How to use change psychology to make an amazing first impression and improve your business processes.
Key phrases to eliminate from your coaching vocabulary, so you don’t accidentally demotivate your clients.
The steps required to explore, assess, and track your own process of change, so you’re at the top of your game when helping others.
Estimated learning time: 10-12 hrs
You’ll learn what behavior is and where it comes from. This unit takes a biopsychosocial, deep health perspective and explores how both behavior and change result from complex interactions between our body, brain, and environment.
Building on these ideas, you’ll learn the “deep change” concept of sustainable, wide-ranging growth and evolution (rather than “hacks” or “quick fixes”).
Estimated learning time: 10-12 hrs
You’ll go deeper into how change happens and how you can facilitate it with clients to produce incredible results. You’ll get specific skills, practices, and actions to support growth and understand why these particular techniques are most effective.
Included is PN’s Change Predictor Assessment Tool, with advanced features to assess your clients’ readiness to change, helping you develop a plan that will have the most chance of success.
