20: Coaching Through Shame

We're wrapping up our mini-series about coaching through difficult emotions by exploring a big one... SHAME. Just reading or saying the word allowed is often enough to invoke feelings of embarrassment, brokenness, and unworthiness within us. And when our clients carry shame with us as a constant companion, it can block them from accomplishing their goals.

Just reading or saying the word allowed is often enough to invoke feelings of embarrassment, brokenness, and unworthiness within us.

And when our clients carry shame with us as a constant companion, it can block them from accomplishing their goals.

  • An exploration into what shame is
  • How it contrasts with an associated feeling of guilt
