Experienced executive coach Curtis Watkins, known for working with the body, joins me from New York to both explain and show somatic (embodied) coaching. We discuss school sports trauma, acting, bring big and small, what’s too much and too little, what exactly is coaching, linguistics and Fernando Flores, Ontological coaching, coaching vs sports scorching, taking new perspectives, habits, welcoming pain, curiosity, breath in coaching, and phone and Skype coaching. Newly we also do a live demo where Curtis coaches me… which felt a bit vulnerable but will hopefully be useful to listeners.  

Various coaching resources and schools such as the Coaches Rising podcast, Strozz Institute, Stuart Heller, Wendy Palmer, EFC (of course), CTI, and Newfield and New Ventures West are also recommend.
