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,


P.S. If you'd like to join me in a coaching-related conversation, contact my VA, Kim Stacey, at She'll be delighted to explore possible topics with you, and set up a time for us to 'chat'!

As always straight from the heart Karen. And the timing is perfect for me as it echoed the deep realisations I have had just today about my own life, I had just joined the dots and you verbalised it. Thanks so much for your wonderful easy honesty
