Michael Neill is an internationally renowned transformative coach, often described as the ‘coach’s coach,’ and commands extraordinary respect within his field for unleashing the human potential with intelligence, humor, and heart. He has spent nearly 30 years as a coach, adviser, friend, mentor, and creative spark plug to celebrities, CEOs, royalty, and people who want to get more out of themselves and their lives.

His own books have been translated into 24 languages, and his public talks, retreats, seminars, and online programs have touched and transformed lives at the United Nations and in over 60 countries and on six continents. He has been consistently ranked by the international research agency GlobalGurus.org as one of the top 30 coaching thought leaders in the world.
Being at forefront of the coaching profession for nearly 30 years, Michael is passionate about the development and training of the next generation of coaches.

So much time is spent in training and development on sharing ‘best practice’, ‘shortcuts to success’, and ‘life hacks’ that a basic truth often gets missed - our most impactful coaching sessions are invariably the ones where something brand new gets invented in the interaction between you and your client.
In this lighthearted and provocative session, you’ll get the chance to take a fresh look at some of the fundamental assumptions underpinning your coaching and get some gentle guidance on how to make the most of your in-the-moment-responsive-intelligence during your sessions.

Traditional coaching takes place primarily in a horizontal dimension – coaches assist their clients in getting from point A to point B. Yet lasting change nearly always happens in the vertical dimension – a deepening of the client’s ground of being and greater access to inspiration and inner wisdom. While this has generally led to an either/or approach to success and personal growth and a sharp division between therapy and coaching, transformative coaching (or, as I like to call it, ‘coaching from the inside-out’) uses the vertical dimension to facilitate change on the inside even as the client continues to move toward their goals on the outside.
Transformative coaching begins with the premise that people will automatically get more out of their lives when they gain more insight into how life works. Because when we really understand how something works, from a sliding door to a car to gravity, we don’t have to think about it anymore and can just get on with it. We walk in and out, drive, and fall to the ground with a sense of ease and simplicity.
In the same way, when we know who we are and where our experience comes from, we don’t have to overthink things. We can live our lives and follow our guidance knowing that when we’re up, we’re up when we’re down, we’re down, and love, peace, connection, and insight are available all the time, regardless of how we’re feeling.
In other words, if there’s something you want to create or do in the world, knowing how things actually get created and done is of universal benefit. All boats will rise with the tide of this deeper understanding.

During this live coaching demonstration, Michael Neil will bring on one of his clients and coach them live using his methodologies. Attendees will get the chance to see high-level coaching in action and observe directly how a leading coach can establish trust, listen with complete focus, deeply understand their clients’ needs, ask powerful questions and communicate effectively during a real-life coaching situation.
The first part of the call will be the speaker introducing the client and what methodologies and process they are going to use to coach them. During the second part, the live coaching demonstration will take place. The third part is a debrief of the demonstration for attendees to learn which tools and methodologies the coach used in which context and understand how to create similar results with their own clients, especially when it comes to their coaching presence, listening ability, the power of the questions asked as well as clarity and effectiveness in communication. The fourth and final part is a Q&A with the audience, helping them to integrate their learnings and gain additional clarity on how to implement their learnings with their own clients.
