The Coach's Backpack

David Lowe

The Coach’s Backpack podcast asks a variety of coaches (from sports to comedy) what they consider to be the most important tools of their trade, physically and/or mentally. They are only allowed to take limited items on a hypothetical new engagement: one book, one tool/technique/approach/framework, one other item of their choice … and a person to accompany them.

Within coaching we all know the power of truly feeling listened to and heard! Madeleine works with people to help them move forward with their loss in a way that is right for them.
