I just read an amazing post by my new friend, Anita Garza, and it prompted and inspired this video. (Check it out down below)
Shallow coaching is just not enough anymore.
We are a world that is going through radical change, and people are waking up to ancestral collective wounds, soul wounds that have been festering inside humanity for a really long time – racial injustice, collective trauma, slavery, human trafficking, ecological disaster, this rivalrous hierarchical nature that is in all of us.
It is embedded in all of us. It’s not a problem “out there” – it is a problem “in here” with every single one of us.
We all have our part to play in this, and each and everyone of us has our own inner work to do in order to show up in a new way, in a more compassionate and loving way, to be the change that we want to see in the world.
If you’re a coach helping people with change, it’s no longer good enough and no longer efficient, effective, helpful to just teach surface level strategies.
We as coaches need to have the skills, ability, wherewithal, willingness to go deep into our own stuff and face our own biases, prejudices, blind spots, and to be willing and have the capacity to go deep with our clients to help them with transformational change. Not just surface level strategic change but really deep transformational change.
Because that’s what the world requires to heal. It requires us to face those hidden wounds and shadows and move through them. Not bypass them but move through them, integrate and heal those wounds, to see those parts of ourselves for all sorts of different reasons that might be hurting or feel stuck or unworthy or shameful.
So if you are not yet making the impact or the income that you want to in your coaching business, my calling for you and my challenge and gauntlet for you is to start to integrate the outer world work that you do with the inner world work that you do.
I know that I speak to coaches on both sides of this equation.
Some coaches that follow me are really great at business and really great at fitness and practical world stuff. And some coaches are really great at inner world stuff, but their own inner world wounds around capitalism and business and privilege stop them from making the impact that they really truly want to make and they have the capacity to make because they have their own rejection of the oppressor.
There’s lots of different things that are going on here and each and everyone of us has our own stuff to work through.
And so, for us to really stand equally as human beings of all colors, shapes, races, sizes, cultures, experiences, and really stand in synarchy, which is the highest level beyond hierarchy, and really stand together as an industry and as a planet, then we get to do the deep work as well as the surface level work.
We get to show up in a new way. We get to go deep and look at our own stuff so that we can then help our clients go through their stuff as well.
Because transformational change doesn’t happen just from a strategy. Transformational change requires a fundamental shift of how you see yourself and how you see yourself within the context of the world, how you see your place in the world – your status, your worthiness, your ability to do what you want to do and what your heart yearns for.
So, surface level stuff is not enough, and I’ve kind of created this new idea… Well, it’s not that new, it’s like it’s the combination of super and coaching.
This identity or new archetype of the SuperCoach is one that has the willingness, the capacity, the ability to look within, to look at those difficult uncomfortable places, and to grow and to heal and to help others do the same.
If you feel a calling to raise your level of skill mastery and to raise your level of confidence and conviction to do videos like this for your own audience and call them to a higher standard, and inspire and encourage your people to make the transformational change that they want, then I encourage and invite you to come join me in the SuperCoach Society where I share tips, strategies, skills, processes, and inspirational rants occasionally that help you to step up into your greatest service and greatest impact.
It is no longer good enough to just do surface level stuff. We need to be fully integrated transformational humans to be beacons and lighthouses of the change that the world requires right now.
I’d love you to join me. We’ve got a whole planet to help shift, so we need all hands on deck right now.
Peace out. I’ll speak to you soon.
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
