Dr. Rosie Kuhn and Transformational Coaching

Health Coach Academy, Rosie Kuhn, Transformational Coaching

Where Spirituality Fits into Coaching

Coaches Being Coached 


Dr. Rosie Kuhn Notable Quotes

“If we’re not willing to invest in our own growth as a coach, or as a person in health and wellness, we’ll have to look at that context because that will interfere with the people coming to you. Because you have a thing that says, ‘coaching isn’t worth it,’ or some interpretation, or some belief or judgment about it.”
                                                            -Rosie Kuhn

“We’re all patterned—we’re all domesticated by our family, our culture, our religion. And so great coaches empower people to look at those choices that they made, and how they think certain ways, and how they interpret life in a certain way.”
                                                            -Rosie Kuhn
