Listening Goes a Long Way

One of the best ways to support your clients’ food journey is to ask what are their favorite foods — get into the details with them. What flavors do they love? What textures are appealing, and what are repelling? What eating schedule do they follow?

The art of being a good health and wellness practitioner starts with listening. Ask lots of curious questions. Don’t give into the temptation of telling them what to do before hearing them.

Stephen Covey — in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says, “Seek first to understand and then be understood.” This couldn’t be more true than in health coaching.

In the History Taking module, we have lots of details, videos, and templates.  

Your job is to get to the heart of the matter.

Master the power of why — you want to go deep and touch their heart and soul, then be able to guide them back to health.

Empower them to become unstoppable.
