The Book Leads – Episode 51: ⁠Matt Thieleman⁠ & his book, This Is Coaching: How to Transform a Client’s Performance, Life, and Business as a Master Coach & Warrior of Love

My discussion with Matt is yet another open and vulnerable conversation in which we cover my guest’s life and path that led to their work today. Specifically for Matt, that means helping clients today “who are missing something and don’t quite know what it is.”

The conversation covers so many areas – childhood trauma, how we can be drawn toward chaos, and the power of healing in both living our best life and doing the best work we can.

Drawing from the career lessons and experience of his own journey as a human and his own work as a coach, Matt has published This Is Coaching to provide more insight into what Coaching can become.

Episode Highlights

  • Marketing’s applicability to leadership
  • A question that has driven Matt throughout his work and career: How do I put myself in another person’s perspective and get curious about what would actually be useful for them?
  • Why looking back at our childhood can feel “icky.”
  • Growing as a leader means to be able to grow our capacity to play on the full spectrum of life, however that looks.
  • How fear shows up whenever possibility shows up

The MAIN QUESTION underlying my conversation with Matt is, How do you step into what it is you need to do to get to where you want to go and who you want to be?
