The Power of Radical Honesty in Coaching with David Schwendiman

In this webinar, I interview my colleague and friend David Schwendiman on having radical honesty in coaching. David and I met in 2015 when we were both much earlier on in our coaching professions and attending Steve Chandler’s ACS coaching school.

Not only is David very funny but he’s heavily invested in his coaching practice and himself which manifests in his unique coaching style. If you have trouble being completely honest with your coaching clients, then check this out.
