TRANSCRIPT

 

Well, hello there, my friend. Welcome to another episode of the Coach with Clarity podcast. I'm your host, Lee Chaix McDonough. And as always, thank you for joining me for this week's episode, we are about to tackle a topic that I would say most, if not every single one of us have experienced at some point in our businesses and our relationship in our lives. That's right, I am diving into the dreaded plateau, or what happens when either we or our clients get stuck. In fact, I might go so far as to suggest that when clients come to us for coaching, it's because on some level, they feel stuck. They know they are capable of achieving more in their businesses, in their relationships, in their health, in their life, and they need some support in breaking through and hitting the next level. So this idea of clients getting stuck is not something that we as coaches should shy away from. In fact, it is at the very foundation of why our clients are reaching out to us, and at the heart of the work we are going to do with them.
