Kate Michels’ “Ripples in the Water” appears in Choice Magazine

The ripple effect is miraculous and the changes are numerous. -Kate Michels

I’ve had the pleasure of writing another article for choice magazine. This issue of choice magazine addresses social responsibility through coaching, and in my article, I discuss the ripple effect that is set into motion with each conversation that you have with your clients. Here is an excerpt from my article that was accepted for publication in this special issue. Be sure to click on the link below to read the entire article.

The ripples go and on. This is a statement we are all familiar with and it is a great reminder that what we all do does really matter. It’s important as coaches to realize how far the ripples from a coaching session really are able to travel.

Think about the clients you have spoken to this week, over the last month, throughout the past year and (if applicable) clients you have worked with over many years. Now just pick one client – any one will do. Think about this client and consider the significance their sessions with you have made on the choices they have made in their life. Now expand this thought out to the pchoice magazine covereople that this client is in relationship with: their partner, children and close friends. Recognize how your client’s choices are impacting these people directly – so much so that it is almost as if those people are coaching with you, too. Move out a bit further to the extended relationships of your client, such as their co-workers and neighbors. Do you recognize how their coaching sessions with you and the changes they are making in their life are impacting these other people on a regular basis? (read the full article here)

Kate Michels’ “Coaching is Ageless” appears in Choice Magazine

“Our clients are creators and artists with their own lives as their canvas, and we as coaches are there at their side to provide guidance, to shine a light from various angles and to spotlight specific areas.” – Kate Michels

choice magazine coverIt is always a pleasure to write for choice magazine and this issue is particularly interesting because it addresses generational concerns as related to coaching and being coached. It particularly focuses on the Millennials. Here is an excerpt from my article that was accepted for publication in this special issue. Be sure to click on the link below to read the entire article.

Eleven years ago, when I was two years into building my coaching practice, my 20-year-old daughter decided to become a life coach herself. The concept thrilled me and I knew it was a profession that would suit her talents and abilities well. The admissions people for the program she considered joining asked her age, then discouraged her by saying people might not be willing to hire someone so young since her experiences were limited. They then added perhaps there was a chance if she wanted to work with teenagers or preteens. This led her to believe that maybe when she was older she would have more to offer as a coach; thus her enthusiasm was quenched and she chose to move in a different career direction.

Was this the best advice to give a young person considering coach training? As a professional coach trainer now myself, I often reflect upon this moment and feel saddened at the limitations that were projected onto my daughter. In sharing this personal story, I ask you to truly consider the coaching profession as ageless. Coaching does not require us to have any personal experience to understand where clients are coming from or to support them in where they are going. (read full article here)

final say, Published by choice

Once again, it is an honor to be selected for inclusion in an issue of choice magazine in the section, “final say; Sharing Thoughts and Wisdom Toward Better Coaching.” The title choice magazine coverof my piece is Show Up; Keep Your Word. To read the full piece click on the magazine cover in this post. Here is an excerpt:

What does it take to shift from impossible to “I’m possible”?

The first step often mentioned for success is to show up. Show up where? And how do we get there? Really there are some steps that must come before this accepted first step, and this is where coaching magic begins. Before anyone can show up anywhere, they must first have the words to describe where they want to go. Words expressed and then put into action.

As entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn said, “Words do two major things: They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.” So, for coaches, showing up and keeping your word is twofold because we are showing up for ourselves making success in our life, and we are supporting other people in knowing how to show up and create their own success. We are keeping our word and we are bringing life to the words of our clients. There is nothing more magical than words and what they make possible. The words are the instrument of creation.

“It has not been for nothing that the word has remained man’s principal toy and tool; without the meanings and values it sustains, all man’s other tools would be worthless.” ~ Lewis Mumford
