"Alida, I wanted to tell you that I noticed a huge shift in my coaching today. I noticed that I was coaching with detachment from outcomes and with increased curiosity about what is really going on for the client. I was using more intuitive reflection, summaries, and asking better questions. I probed for articulation when asking them to describe their recovery commitment - not accepting general or vague answers. This surprised me and I feel engaged with coaching in a new way, and am excited to continue.
In the last module (Mod 4) I was given the gift of greater freedom “from the obsession of self” and healing from old patterns. It was a timely precursor to your return from India, and the way you described in class specifically how to be an effective coach. You are not only a master coach, Alida, but also a wonderful teacher. It is our blessing that you have renewed your commitment to ‘train the next generation of addiction professionals’. Thank you for your gift."
