Season 3 Trailer
This season of How I Live Through This - Undercover Coaches, was inspired by a flight attendant I met who used her listening skills as a way to connect, calm, and create an extraordinary experience for the passengers and crew.
Our interaction made me realize that I have met a lot of people who aren’t expert listeners or trained coaches but who use empathy, curiosity, and generosity to connect and create space for other people to step into possibility. I call them undercover coaches.
People in my audience were saying, your guests are amazing but I don’t have these coaching or leadership skills. I can’t do that work because I don’t know how to. What if I get it wrong? What if I make a mistake?
I feel exactly the same way. Every goddamn day.
And I’m calling bullshit on both of us.
If I’ve learned anything these past few years, it’s that no one is coming to save us. The curtain has been pulled back and it’s clear that it’s up to each one of us to show up and put in the work to make the change we want to see in the world.
Sometimes, that work is as simple as a conversation.
In this season, I interview people - including that flight attendant - who show up intuitively using these skills. My hope is that I learn how to use these tools more fluently, not just as a coach, but in my everyday life and interactions.
I’m hoping you find them useful as well.
