The Process of Transforming Paradigms

As coaches it’s our job to map the internal world of our clients; understanding their unique paradigm from which they view and engage with the world is fundamental to deep transformation.

In this conversation with organizational consultant Keith Merron we explore what paradigms are and how they are formed and transformed, the change process, mapping the client’s paradigm, meeting the paradigm’s needs and unlocking the pain body.
