This week I welcome Lauren Handel Zander to the YKAL podcast. Lauren is the author of, Maybe It’s You: Cut the Crap, Face Your Fears, Love Your Life. She is also a life coach, university lecturer and co-founder of Handel Group. She joins me to talk about the everyday shit that we do that takes us farther away from the person we want to be and the person we were meant to be.
We had an amazing conversation about her journey to becoming a life coach, what personal integrity means to her and her work, qualifying yes versus no, and the epidemic of lying.
In this episode you’ll hear:
- Lauren’s path to becoming a life coach (7 minutes and 30 seconds)
- What is personal integrity and how she uses it to help people achieve their goals (13:51)
- One trick to keep you accountable when it comes to doing the work (20:17)
