I have written every day for the past 10 years. If you like to read, I've got your back - and I promise to challenge your thinking

Silence is your superpower. Here’s how to use it.

The Silence Paradox: Most people appreciate silence only when someone else is practicing it. 

Silence is a superpower.

One of my clients has invested over $150,000 in our work together, over the years. 

He likes to say that he’s paid me more money to say nothing than almost anything he’s ever paid money for in his life!

Silence is your coaching superpower.

The next time a client starts talking, gently push your tongue against the roof of your mouth. It will stop the micro-movements of your tongue that occur when you’re thinking of what to say next. 

Stop thinking. 

Just listen. 

Pure presence. 

Most people have never been truly listened to. 

“Uh huh…”

“Say more…”

“Mmm hmm…”

“Tell me more about that…”

Stop thinking. 

Just listen. 

It will take your coaching to the next level.

Love. Rich

 

 

PS. The Deep Dive is back. We begin this December—and over the course of two months, including two days in Dubai—you will join a small group of committed people, with me as your coach.
You'll set yourself up for 2022, refreshed and revitalized, with a clear vision and a bold action plan.
The first 2 spots have already gone. Learn more and join me, here.

PLUS… Whenever you’re ready… here are 4 more ways we can help you grow an extraordinary coaching business—one conversation at a time:

  1. Take your coaching and your client creation to the next level with Master the Prosperous Coach Approach and Master Deep Coaching… 6 weeks of live experiences with me. We begin in a couple of days. I will be setting you challenges, each week.
  2. Join Transition Excellence, my self-paced training on client creation. Plus, you get weekly live group calls with me and my leadership team—and you join our private Facebook group to access our incredible community. TE is designed for executives and entrepreneurs transitioning into coaching and consulting. It’s also ICF accredited.
  3. If you want me to draw out your genius (what makes you weird), sign up for a Branded session. I’ll draw out the stories from your past that you cannot yet tell. People often cry when I do this. And I’ll help you craft stories to create your future that have people say, “Wow!” **There are no spots left for 2021 but you can apply for your session in Jan or Feb 2022, now. It’s a massive investment in your confidence because we will craft the stories that help you create clients—for the rest of your life.
  4. Being a leader can be lonely but it doesn’t have to be that way… I founded 4PC because I wanted to be surrounded by coaches with a track record of success behind them and big dreams ahead of them. We have members from across the United States, Canada and Europe and our first member from Africa joins us this January. There’s a minimum 3 year commitment and a $25K/year membership fee, so this isn’t for most people. But if you’re reading this, you're not most people, right? Apply to join us in 4PC…
Transforming world-class leaders into world-class coaches.
That’s what we do.

If this sounds like you, let’s talk and explore if working together is a good fit.
