Disintegrate the Dependency Model

If you’ve been hip to the self-help industry for a while, you know there are certain paradigms when it comes to “helping” people. And if you know me, you know that I’m all about busting through those paradigms. I want to encourage you to do the same.

 

Here’s the gist of the old, stale approach vs. what I’d love to see coaches and influencers put out there:

 

 

OLD: Guru focused

NEW: Client focused

 

OLD: Lecture based

NEW: Guided group webinars

 

OLD: Constant consumption

NEW: Action oriented

 

OLD: Content overwhelm

NEW: Content integration

 

OLD: Product & brand driven

NEW: Client experience driven

 

It’s time to shake things up as wellness coaches. Instead of playing the guru role, give your clients methods and practices they can use to hone in on their intuition, in addition to working with you. My go to methods to assign are journaling and meditation, both of which will allow your clients to tap into their deep, inner knowing and build that trust with themselves and their intuition.
