  • How people misunderstand Coaching, and how it’s actually like magic. (I agree 100%)
  • How Coaching is a massage for the brain.
  • We overcomplicate everything when simple will do just fine, including in Coaching.
  • The power of your first experience in anything and the belief box you build from there.
  • The idea of reconsidering what you believed caused your burn-out in the past.
  • The power behind the Transformation Cycle of Regroup, Relive, Remotion.
  • “Most people don’t even see us failing. We only see ourselves.”

The MAIN QUESTION underlying my conversation with Fabienne is, How can you use your past to find your heart and authenticity and move forward unapologetically bold?
