Join ICF New Mexico for an insightful session titled, Funcomfortable: Coaching Beyond the Comfort Zone, where we delve into the crucial aspect of discomfort in personal growth.

Far too often, clients find themselves confined within their comfort zones, hindering their progress and potential. Whether it’s avoiding difficult conversations, delaying tasks, or failing to pursue aspirations, the fear of discomfort serves as a formidable barrier to their advancement.

However, within discomfort lies the seed of transformation. Embracing discomfort is not only integral to growth but is also a skill that can be cultivated through scientific principles. Much like how physical exercise strengthens our muscles, confronting discomfort exercises our capacity for resilience and adaptability.

The central query arises: How can coaches effectively guide their clients to embrace discomfort?

In this illuminating session, participants will be equipped with five science-based tools designed to facilitate a shift in clients’ brain chemistry, enhancing their willingness to venture beyond their comfort zones. By infusing the process with an essential ingredient – fun – participants will discover how to harness the brain’s reward system to incentivize exploration and growth.

Fun is not merely a frivolous concept; it is a skill that, when honed, becomes a potent catalyst for progress. By mastering the art of integrating discomfort with enjoyment, coaches can ignite a powerful momentum of growth within their clients’ lives.

You will leave this session armed with the ability to:

  • Identify the primary obstacles preventing clients from embracing discomfort
  • Implement five scientifically validated tools to induce positive changes in clients’ brain chemistry, fostering a greater receptivity to discomfort.
  • Integrate fun into discomfort-exposure exercises, facilitating enhanced client momentum and growth
    Use the practical tools and techniques to break-through your own discomfort as a coach

Sign up today to get out of your comfort zone and step in the FUN-comfortable zone!
