Location: PPA Event Center, 2105 Decautur St, Denver, CO 80211 Speaker: TC North Topic: "Fearless Coaches . . . Don't Let Fear Destroy Your Dreams" *CCEUs: TBD Fear of failure, fear of selling and fear of rejection and other fears will keep you from attaining your dreams. However, mastering fear will help make your dreams and your clients’ dreams come true. Fearless coaches build extraordinary practices and teach their clients the secrets of fearlessness, which rapidly enhance their clients’ success. Fear blocks success. It blocks us from having what we all want … happiness, great relationships and full coaching practices. In this experiential workshop, you’ll be engaged, entertained, educated, uplifted and challenged by this fresh perspective on mastering fear and applying the Fearless Leaders Success secrets from the book I am co-authoring with New York Times best-selling author Cathy Greenberg, titled Fearless Leaders™. You will learn and engage with the Fearless Leaders success secrets, learn how to live these secrets yourself and how to share them with your clients. You’ll learn through the stories and success secrets learned from world-class business leaders, athletes, special operations personnel and humanitarians, and begin the mastery of each success secret by engaging in specific techniques and exercises.
