This page provides audio recordings of coaching demonstrations that I've done over the years. You'll hear a variety of situations, both personal and work-related, with which my volunteer clients struggled.
As a coach, there's always more than one way to work with a client. When I initially recorded these demos, it was fascinating for me to listen the choices I made while coaching and what threads in the conversation I pursued.
I hope these coaching demonstrations provide several things to you, the listener:
- An understanding of what coaching is and is not. It's much easier to give people an experience of coaching as opposed to describing it.
- Insight into the kinds of situations that coaching can help with. Not every situation is appropriate for coaching.
- My own style of coaching, in case you are interested in becoming a client. If you are wondering if there's a fit between what I provide and what you need, please contact me for a complimentary consultation.
These demos were originally part of a podcast, Live Action Coaching, available on iTunes and other sites. Since then, technology has gotten a lot easier to use and iTunes has gotten a lot more crowded. Hence, the move to place it here, alongside my blog. Seems appropriate.
What next's? Maybe online video? For now, enjoy these coaching demonstrations:

Career Rejuvenation and Unconscious Competence
In this demo, I coach a technical professional who has decided to leave his expertise behind and learn a new area at work.
