Emilio Arsuaga on Coaching and Perspective

September 2, 2023

A young man pursues the career he thinks he wants, but begins to feel farther and farther from his center. Feeling he’s lost his way, he begins to study and practice ontological coaching, and in the process his confusion and sadness turn into light and focus.

Coaching is communication… and it starts with listening. (Emilio, 7:55)
