Transformation - a Fundamental Concept in Coaching!

Hello, Magnificent Coaches!

This K-Cast brings you into a conversation between me, and Melissa Nuwaysir, a Life Transitions and Transformation Coach who inspires others to live their fullest, most compassionate lives. She received her credential as a Certified Professional Coach from the International Coach Academy in December of 2008, and holds an Associate in Logotherapy (meaning-centered living) from the Viktor Frankl Institute in Dallas, Texas and Pretoria, South Africa.

As the spouse of a Foreign Service employee she lived in Africa for 11 years before returning to the United States last year. Melissa's website, is expected to be up and running soon. In the meantime, should you wish to contact her, you can do so by sending her an email to: You can also reach her by phone at (703) 533-3276, or via Skype. Her i.d. is: melissa.nuwaysir.

She joined me with the following questions:

1. What does the word "transformation" mean to you? How do you define it?

2. Where, how, and/or when have your experienced transformation in your own life?

3. What triggers transformation?

4. How do you facilitate transformation in your clients?

5. Are there any particular tools, methods or approaches you've used that seem to work best?

One of my favorite quotations about this experience comes from Wayne Dyer, who wrote:

"Transformation literally means going beyond your form."

It truly is a life-changing, spiritual experience.

As coaches, we are privileged to share in the transformation of our clients. And in so doing, we ourselves are transformed. It's a joyous process for us all, isn't it?

Until next time...

Love and Great Joy,

directions. Her Web site is

In the current K-Cast, Nanci presents me with the following
questions - all of which are extremely valuable to coaches who are
looking for innovative ways to reach their niche market.

doing a free teleclass?

find them and how would I create an interest?

3. What ideas do you have for creating a workbook (funbook) for
the group?

4. How many group coaching teleclasses would be most helpful?

5. Is this group coaching or a program if I'm implementing a
