Ever wondered, “What do I say when my client…

… says or does something confusing, unexpected, or challenging?”

… asks a big question I can’t answer?”

… doesn’t follow my advice?”

Or perhaps you’ve thought:

  • “I’m lost! I have no idea what to do or say right now to help this person change.”
  • “My client is ‘ghosting’ me. Should I chase them down or let them be?”
  • “I tried Coaching Technique X and it didn’t work. Now what?”

We’ve been there. And we can help.

Of all the skills a great coach must possess, communication ranks very close to the top.

But most coaches simply don’t have the tools to communicate effectively—especially when things get a little… tricky.

We’re here to change that.

After personally helping over 100,000 people achieve incredible body and health transformations, we’ve learned a few things about effective communication (yes, sometimes the hard way). We’ve also had the opportunity to implement effective techniques drawn from the fields of counseling psychology, behavioral economics, and neuroscience.

Now for the first time, we’ve consolidated our best communication strategies, tactics, and tools into one digital course—so you can overcome the biggest hurdles standing in the way of helping your clients achieve lasting change.

What you’ll learn in How to Talk to Clients

Learn surprisingly simple ways to turn an uncomfortable conversation into a powerful change moment.


Set clear boundaries and expectations for when, what, and how you and your client will communicate. Learn to balance closeness and warmth with professional privacy and courtesy.

How the course works

How to Talk to Clients to Help Them Change is a self-paced, digital course. Throughout three carefully-crafted units, you’ll learn how to communicate with clients more effectively and guide them toward lasting change. Here’s what’s covered in each unit:

Unit 1:
How do we communicate more effectively as coaches?

Estimated learning time: 4-6 hrs

What do we need to learn, do, and say in order to facilitate change through our coaching communication and interactions?

Leaning into the ideas of “deep change” and “deep health”, we’ll introduce and explore a model of “deep coaching” to show coaches how they can work from the most superficial layers of communication, to the root causes and issues driving human behavior.

Unit 2:
What tools, tactics, and techniques can we practice and improve?

Estimated learning time: 4-6 hrs

Borrowing from various disciplines such as counseling psychology, health communication, and high-performance coaching, we’ll look at some specific coaching approaches that you can adapt and deploy to boost your client’s change potential.

Unit 3:
How do we have—and even embrace—challenging coaching conversations?

Estimated learning time: 4-6 hrs

Whether high-stakes, awkward, painful, embarrassing, or conflict-laden, we’ll explore a range of coaching conversations that can seem like roadblocks to change, but are in fact major opportunities to enrich your understanding of, and connection with, your client.
