Systemic Facilitating and Coaching

In your own work as a facilitator, Breaking Big can show you how to identify, break and resolve patterns that don’t serve and consciously create patterns for success. Workshops and trainings will teach you the principles that govern all living systems. You’ll learn to examine systemic sentences and their effects on success or failure, and learn to facilitate through dimensional mapping, accessing multi-generations in organizations, roles and individuals.

For Facilitators

Working with a whole system in mind creates healthy workplaces and individuals. You’ll learn to identify the issue, see the patterns and experientially test solutions in one sitting.

For Coaches, consultants and organizational development specialists

Often when working with your client, you seem to hit a brick wall. It’s usually because you’re only dealing with their professional system. That’s only half the story. Their family systems are their primary pattern makers. Without this information you may be flying blind. By learning to access and align their professional and personal systems, insight and breakthrough performance are achieved.

Organizations and HR

For professional development or when staff members hit a brick wall, systemic facilitation and coaching offers a deep, respectful and lasting way to shift from what is to what’s possible.

It’s personal, too.

Workshops are designed to take you beyond what is to what’s possible. What’s your single biggest issue? What’s keeping you stuck? Working through this experiential workshop format, you’ll understand why you’re stuck, what the gift is and how to use it with your own unique voice. Create lasting strength and direction.

Bespoke workshops are available.

Professional Series

Emotional DNA Professional Series for Certification

Become the biggest change creator your clients will ever work with

In this new experiential 4-part training series, I’ll teach you the tools and strategies to go deeper, faster with your clients to uncover obstacles and illuminate possibilities. By doing your own work and creating change from within, you’ll learn how to create profound and lasting change in the lives and businesses of your clients–in a way that’s fulfilling and inspiring.

Emotional DNA is your greatest gift.

Just as our physical DNA is inherited, our emotional genetics also get passed down from generation to generation. Success, failure, love and money can be linked back to our ancestral family system. And if a limiting pattern lives in that family system, it can show up in your personal and business life. Does that mean we’re doomed to repeat the past? No, the past only lives in you as a repetitive pattern until you see it, know what you want, choose something different and allow yourself to go all the way with your choice. Emotional DNA can be rewired. I’ll show you how to identify limiting patterns and establish new patterns of success and fulfillment for your clients so you can guide them to lasting transformation.

Find more meaning, depth and satisfaction in your work.

When you work in the field of human potential, transforming leaders into visionary rock stars feels extraordinary. Because when most people feel stuck, they think they’re a limited edition, incapable of becoming big. It’s our job to show clients the mindful path to unlimited self-worth. And whenever you help someone identify a behavior pattern that lives in their family system–good or bad–it’s transformative. You can literally see profound shift take root as they realize how this multigenerational pattern has affected their own life and use it in order to ignite a new pattern. To watch the visceral, human reaction as your client becomes unstuck, is pure magic.

New format for deeper learning, faster breakthroughs and lasting change.

My new Emotional DNA Professional Series for certification is a streamlined, 4-part workshop format designed to help you access a more complete picture of your client with a fuller understanding of the whole person. You’ll learn to quickly discern behavior patterns, see opportunities and establish direction so you can and begin the work of opening them up to the next level with steps that are believable and achievable. With this level of training, you’ll be able to guide your clients to life-shifting breakthroughs and lasting change like no other in your field.
