66: Jory Stillman
"Have you ever had to hide an identity or felt like you had to hide your identity as a coach? And what's that experience like? That is definitely something that I've been thinking about a lot." — Jory Stillman
61:27 12/11/23
65: Cheri Allen
"It creates that awareness at a molecular level. If it hits that DNA, the transformation that occurs from the inside out is phenomenal. That's what I think is so important about coaching: That it has the opportunity to get deep inside below all the layers to what's really important to the person that I have the privilege and honor to be with, and help them to see, 'What's going to serve me best? And what do I want to do about getting it?'" — Chéri Allen
63:30 11/13/23
64: Jihane Labib
"It's more than language: 'Who am I when I'm speaking in English? And who am I when speaking in French? And who am I when I am speaking in Arabic?' It was like a big question of, 'Who are you, Jihane?'" — Jihane Labib 
63:13 10/23/23
63: Pooja Khandelwal
"Being present in this world with people as a coach is life-changing. It allows me to stay positive. There's so much pain and yet . . . there's a certain gratitude. It allows me to stay very grateful and happy to be alive, to have everything I have around me, the goods, the bads, the uglies. Every challenge just shapes me because I have coaching as a muscle." — Pooja Khandelwal
59:27 10/19/23
62: Ann Fogolin
"There isn't a facet of my life that hasn't been impacted by understanding more about what coaching is and the benefits of that quality of conversations that I can have." — Ann Fogolin
52:16 10/11/23
61: Ellen Fulton
"I learned resilience. I learned unconditional love that I could give. I learned the ability to be persistent and forgive from really difficult situations." — Ellen Fulton
64:59 9/29/23
60: Elias Scultori
"Coaching is not simply something that we do, but it is something who we are. The practice of being fully there cannot be only achieved when we are in front of our clients. It has to be a practice that we do and that we are committed to on a daily basis." — Elias Scultori
60:55 9/19/23
59: Kathleen O'Grady
"Yes, we bring our 'coach selves' wherever we go: We're inherently more curious and better listeners, and we know how to ask good questions. But people don't realize that when you are in a formal coaching session it is a totally different, sacred dynamic. So when I've had people come sit in on my class that have known me for years, they're like, 'Kathleen, I didn't know you could do that.' It's wild!" — Kathleen O'Grady
62:24 9/7/23
58: Ginny Baillie
"I love Drag Race. I've seen every episode. I have 'Yas Queen' tattooed onto my wrist. My mum said 'What does 'Yas Queen' mean?' I said, 'It means you've done something fierce, you're looking fierce, or you're feeling fierce.' I really admire people who are on the outside and at risk and still doing it." — Ginny Baillie
74:43 8/12/23
57: Nadjeschda Taranczewski
"I've come to realize I don't have to have the 'perfect' anything. For example, for a client I actually just need to show up as a human being and meet them with as much curiosity as I can find in myself. That's the healing agent: to receive somebody, to see them." — Nadjeschda Taranczewski
69:38 6/13/23
56: Hannah Finrow
“I’ll tell you what [a pause] is not: It’s not a moment of nothing. Oftentimes people think it’s this empty, wasted, dead space. It’s not! It’s their space to turn inward and find the answers, and to explore inwardly, which then affects everything that comes on the outside. This space is the doorway to all the other experiences in coaching." — Hannah Finrow
74:02 2/13/23
55: Adam Quiney
"I've discovered that I'm a deeply spiritual person. But I would have just laughed at you if you had said that to me 12 years ago, when I first started this work." — Adam Quiney
67:16 8/9/22
54: Annie Gelfand
"The question is: 'If you eliminate someone, if you push them away, do you feel expanded or contracted?' I feel contracted so I felt like pushing away is not the answer. What's the way to create expansion? What's the way to create more oneness? And there's so much in coaching and and coaching mastery that addresses that." — Annie Gelfand
49:47 6/30/22
53: Melanie Perry
"Friends will be on the phone and say 'I'm so sorry. Are you still there? Is my phone working?' 'Yeah, I'm listening to you. You're one of my favorite people in the world and you're telling me something important. I'm so glad I get to witness this.' There's no need for me to say anything." — Melanie Perry
71:58 4/6/22
52: Emily Golden
"What does it mean to me to belong? How do I know on a cellular level that I belong in certain spaces and places? And that I don't belong in other spaces? What I've come to is it's being able to see myself in the other people: it's being able to see bits and pieces of my own story, my own journey, my own struggles, my own wins, my own hardships, my own accomplishments." — Emily Golden
60:01 4/1/22
51: Giuseppe Totino
"Every painter has got the same colors at their disposal. But the way they blend the colors to create their own art makes them unique. And the same is for the master coach. We all have the same competencies at our disposal, but how we blend them to be with our clients and to work with our clients makes unique art of coaching." — Giuseppe Totino
73:02 3/26/22
50: Bill Pullen
"I talk to a lot of clients about using their values to guide their decisions and their thinking and their actions. That forces me to look at 'Where am I using my values to guide my decision-making in my thinking? And where am I living in integrity with my values and not?'" — Bill Pullen
63:27 3/21/22
49: Sandi Stewart
"What I love about coaching is that it is about 'imperfect'. It's about, 'What are we going to learn from this thing where it didn't go so well?' You didn't like how that went? Okay, there's another choice out there. There's another right answer. That's a space that has really transformed me." — Sandi Stewart
66:48 3/7/22
48: Wendy Preyssler
"When I'm first working with a client, there's a period where they're getting to know me. And I think the more that I'm truly authentic, and I use direct communication, and I do say what no one else would dare say, they recognize that they can trust me: I'm not holding any punches." — Wendy Preyssler
66:30 3/1/22
47: Dr. Paras
"My role is to just be present. And partner. And then be absent in the space of ego. And just keep doing that work for years. That's what I call the purpose of empowering people's life." — Dr. Paras
51:05 2/17/22
46: Joan Wangler
"I am a highly sensitive woman who sees the good in almost everyone and who wants to make a difference in the world. I realize that the only way I can make a difference is to love the people around me." — Joan Wangler
62:16 2/15/22
45: Lyssa deHart
"I still use what I have learned to be curious with people. But now I don't assume I know. I don't assume I'm right. I assume instead that I have an opportunity to ask a question. The client is at choice to determine what to do with the question." — Lyssa deHart
57:45 2/11/22
44: Heru Yuwono Liem
"I want to be the one who is able to support others to become better versions of themselves. So that's why I use the metaphor of a sherpa. I don't want to be in that spotlight. But I want to make people to be in the spotlight." — Heru Yuwono Liem
50:05 2/10/22
43: Catherine Wood
"That was the reason that I started on my own personal journey: to find that thing that was missing, that made me feel unhappy about my life. And I really feel a level of true, soul-filling joy about my life and who I am these days, so much self-acceptance and peace about who I am, how I commit my time, who and what I say yes to, who and what I say no to. I don't think that coaching could give me a better gift than that." — Catherine Wood
56:40 2/2/22
42: Kathy Fleming
"I often say, 'This flag is standing up and we each have our hands on it. And we're gonna hold this thing. You tell me this is what you want. We're holding it. And when you let go of it — because you say you're tired or don't necessarily want it or you can't do it — I'll be standing here with this flag until you pry my cold dead hands off of it. And I'm going to invite you to come back. Because until you convince me to let go of this, I'm hanging on. I'm gonna stand right here and be here for you when you find the strength to come back. Because this is what you said you wanted.'" — Kathy Fleming
56:16 1/12/22
41: Clare Beckett-McInroy
"It's almost a physical stance. When I'm team coaching, I am very much more aware of my posture. And I'm aware of my breathing. And it's open body language, wide-angled empathy, listening to all the voices, and even those voices that are not in the room. And as a coach, even if we know the answers or want to fix, knowing that to enable others to discover their own answers makes them even braver, and there's more buy-in." — Clare Beckett-McInroy
50:14 1/6/22
40: Johan van Bavel
"When a client trusts us as coaches and asks for coaching and steps into that coaching process, the client is telling you, 'I trust you. I am completely open for you. I want you to be my thinking partner. And I feel safe.'" — Johan van Bavel
74:35 1/5/22
39: Flame Schoeder
"The lessons learned are holographic: That the thing you're learning about this seemingly tiny situation right now actually pertains to every aspect of your life, if you use it. So how does that impact the world? I believe I'm making the world a better place one conversation at a time." — Flame Schoeder
62:12 12/3/21
38: Lisa Pachence
“Listening deeply to someone really is about the whole darn person. It's about the whole thing. And if we are not connected to ourselves, and what we're choosing, holistically, it becomes very, very difficult to listen to it in other people.” — Lisa Pachence
79:54 11/9/21
37: Ebru Göksu Yıldırım
"I always use English in professional life and in coaching. Yet it's not my native language. And there is a silver lining to it. When I'm mentor coaching this is what I share with those who are not coaching in their first language. 'You don't know how lucky you are.' And they pause because they criticize themselves. I say, 'You can simplify your questions. Your questions can be so straightforward, so concise, because you're just connecting with the essence of the person.'" — Ebru Göksu Yıldırım
