Transitions are a part of all our lives, but they bring many challenges and questions: “Am I still valuable? What is my role? What are my choices? Where do I belong?” Whether it’s marriage, divorce, career change, or retirement, coaches can play a key role in helping others stay curious, look carefully at all aspects of their lives, generate positive possibilities, and transition well.

Today’s guest, Michael Pfau, shares important insights about:

  • The kinds of transitions that cause people to look for a coach
  • The role of the brain in transitioning well • How to grow a client’s awareness of their internal state
  • Ways to embrace positive perspectives
