Game Plan: In this chapter, we begin to get a glimpse at the complexities of transformational coaching. Effectively communicating with our players is not just a matter of sitting down and having a conversation with them. Impactful, life-changing contact and communication can only occur when we are aware of ourselves and are able to keep our eyes purposely fixed on the goal of transforming others through the best tool we have, our transformed selves. This chapter looks at some of the challenges we face on this front, and offers some creative and useful tools that help build and reinforce a program that is built on truth.
