The Flow State of Mind Podcast

Apr 20, 2020

If the term "Placebo" turns you off as a coach, you NEED to listen to this episode. Placebos have been shown in evidence-based research to be effective at a 33% rate. That is not something you can ignore as a coach. Belief is the human driver that truly elicits transformation and progress not only within yourself but with your clients as well. 

We want to share with you exactly what placebos are when it comes to your coaching protocol, why they are effective, and how to utilize them ethically and not be a jackass about it.
