It’s an exciting time to be alive — a time that requires listening deeply and speaking our truth.

This class is about much more than improving your communication skills. It’s about living and coaching in an environment that cultivates connection, courage, resilience, and kindness. It is about bringing compassion to the internal and external realities of yourself (and your clients).

We will practice transforming conditioned beliefs and behaviors that no longer serve us. As we let go of these outdated beliefs, new ideas and ways of thinking will emerge. Through the lens of coaching, the client is always viewed as being creative, resourceful, and whole. Right Speech encourages the action-oriented language of Positive Psychology to help clients live their fullest potential.

It’s a little embarrassing
that after 45 years of research and study,
the best advice I can give people
is to be a little kinder to each other.

Aldous Huxley
