Feel Better, Do Better, Be Better

The most important lesson no one ever taught me, the lesson most people are never taught, is feel. What it is, how to use it, why it matters, and what to do with it. No one can teach it to us. We dress it up as emotion or tie it to neurochemicals as we try to explain it. We bury it and hide it as “feelings.” We do everything we can to avoid it because we’re scared of it. Yet it drives everything we do. What we feel can either reveal who we are or expose what we’ve become.

Feel is not the same thing as feelings – emotions that we don’t necessarily control. Feel is a skill you can improve, leading to better performances, better lives. In fact, I would argue that seeing feel as a skill is the single greatest competitive advantage (other than inherent talent) one can possess.

  • Feel is a gift that deserves and demands our wonder and awe, that allows us to do things we never knew we could do if we would just hold onto it.
  • Feel is a skill worth improving if we’ll just take the risk.
  • Feel tells us what matters if we listen to it.
  • Feel tells us how to do those things that matter if we pay attention to it.
  • Feel tells us when we do well even if our eyes are closed.
  • Feel moves us if we will simply follow it.
  • Feel is the ability to find and make meaning in the action of what we do. To feel and do what matters.
  • Feel is about accountability–how do I do it better?

Ready to Feel Better?

Helping others feel better, do better, and be better is what I do. I offer Like Coaching. That’s right – Like Coaching, a form of life and performance coaching that focuses on the principles of feel and like.

I’ve had the greatest classroom and teachers in the world. Now you’re invited. Join the conversations, the ideas, thoughts, and lessons of the great performers I’ve had the privilege of knowing. I’ll support you and listen to you. I’ll challenge and interrupt you. You will discover what’s missing from your performances instead of what’s wrong with you. You will get better at getting better–-better at doing what you care about, better at being you.

What I Offer

I offer two forms of one-one-one coaching to my clients:

  1. Feel Better Coaching – if you’re unhappy with what you’re doing, or uncertain about what to do next with your life, my Feel Better Coaching is for you.
  2. High Performance Coaching – if you’re already doing what you love and want to improve your performance, my High Performance Coaching is what you’re looking for.

I also offer group and team coaching, workshops, and speaking engagements.
