Letting go of the need to control with Tracey Harris

This week Life Coach Tracey Harris talks to expert High-Performing Coach Maxwell Nee to give her a clear understanding of which angles of coaching is the right thing for her going forward in her career.

Tracey loves motivating people but, as you will hear in the show, her fear of failure is holding her back. ‘Protecting’ herself from failing has made Tracey stagnant instead of working towards her goals.

Max positively challenges her to unravel that existing fear and makes her realise that she doesn’t need to control all areas of her life – which is a BIG breakthrough for her. 

In this episode you will hear:

  • Why you need to get over your past hurt
  • How to work towards moving on
  • Ways to stop controlling things you can’t control
  • Coping with redundancy
  • The importance of sharing experiences
  • How to heal your emotional trauma 

And there is a powerful moment when Maxwell takes Tracey back to a memory of her childhood to uncover where her confidence of not being able to do things alone comes from. Understanding this is a BIG breakthrough moment for Tracey who can then make a plan of next steps with this new understanding of herself. Notice, as well, how Maxwell makes Tracey create an action plan, therefore taking ownership of the next steps in her own journey… bit of a coaching masterclass!
