Finding Your Coach Diving Deep Within with Melinda J. Kelly

Finding Your Coach Diving Deep Within with Melinda J. Kelly

April 2, 2019




Melinda J. Kelly, who after a life in publishing took the step to put her own thoughts to ink. Finding Your Coach Diving Deep Within is her new book and she joins eHealth Radio and the Personal Development Channel.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Melinda J. Kelly discuss the following:

  1. What is a 'coach resister' and how do you know you are one?
  2. What are examples of things we do that are counter intuitive to working with someone?
  3. What differences do you see within volunteer organizations and corporate or business entities?
  4. Why do be believe people resist when they say they want to work with someone or want change?
  5. Why do you talk about success and happiness as two different things?

Tip: By embracing questions as we encounter them, we give ourselves permission to consider other ways to live, to be, who we are. We give ourselves power, comfort, clarity, that what we are doing is for us and what we believe in. Those are powerful things to know.

With a successful career in Melinda’s family business, it would have been easy to continue and gently ride into the sunset. But a combination of major life events – reviewing the future for the business, the direction of a key relationship, and a family member’s health issues - derailed those plans, lead to a reassessment of Melinda’s life as she had known it, had planned it.

Suddenly, there were new questions before Melinda. Lots of questions.

On her journey toward answers, Melinda was able to work with many thought leaders, coaches, as well as draw upon her experiences in non-profit volunteer work. Patterns and traits began to emerge, for herself, with others. As Melinda started to question herself, she found that the questions often brought great comfort and understanding. It is Melinda’s observations that became Finding Your Coach Diving Deep Within.
