WellCoaches: Foundational Behaviors for the Exercise Professional

Course Description:

Discover how to cultivate connection with your clients by enhancing your presence. Your presence, through the essential skills of connection and communication, is a non-negotiable for clients to connect to the relationship with you and to achieving their goals. You communicate with clients not only through what you do with them but also through how you be with them. Learn the practical skills of both in this foundational lesson.
