How does life and wellness coaching support thriving?

When education professionals wish to make simple or complex changes, they are often limited by confusion, distrust, fear and overwhelm. The lack of scientifically proven frameworks for change makes striving for progress challenging.

However, according to recent research, life and wellness coaching helps educators break through those limitations and move toward their visions, and goals, one step at a time. 

This results in a new “way of being” and doing their work that they find more enjoyable. 

The result of this process is called Thriving.
