Coaching Behavior Change to Inspire Positive Transformation
Making a commitment to change can often be a hurdle, especially when it means giving up favorite foods or altering an everyday routine. Too many times we have to deal with the “I hate change” attitude. How can you motivate not only your clients, but also yourself, to make positive change when it’s difficult to even get started?
In this video training taught by Dianne McCaughey, Ph.D.—an ACE Master Trainer, gerontology expert, international speaker and author—you will uncover how to turn negative attitudes into a source of motivation by asking the right questions at the right time. This course will explore how you can make attainable goals that align with your values and become more confident in your journey through behavior change. And, it will empower you to help your clients navigate through their own “stinking thinking.” Learn to develop and solidify relationships based on trust and empathy so that clients will keep coming back and referring friends and loved ones.
You will learn:
- Reasons why people reject change when it comes to their own health and fitness
- Why the benefits of exercise are irrelevant when it comes to motivating people to change
- Powerful strategies for using emotion to inspire behavior change
- How connecting your goals to your personal values can help create motivation
I am a retired mental health therapist and this was a very organized, clear, warm, engaging and informative course on how to address cognitive and emotional issues when working to help people become more healthy. Great job.
As a stand-alone course, I didn't think this one was very helpful. It did elaborate a little more on Cognitive Distortions, which was interesting, and it ties into the Behavior Change package. But overall I didn't learn very much. I was hoping for something a little "edgier" based on the name of the course. I've taken some great courses from ACE, so this was kind of a bummer.
