  • Declipse technique | Wellcoaches

    Declipse Technique™ The Declipse Technique in Mindfulness Coaching from Coach Meg The path to self-change is often long and arduous, but it doesn’t have to be. I am going to share a shortcut, a mindfulness technique that can help speed the transition from growth edge to higher wisdom. This habit goes by several names. You could call it the self-change habit, or a habit of self-leadership. For reasons that will become clear in a moment, I also call it the “declipse” habit. It offers a chance to hack your mind, to crack its code. By calling on the power of intuition, we can transcend the problem at hand. Here’s how this works: Your growth edges can also be thought of as blind spots. They block other perspectives. In a sense, they eclipse the wisdom that we need to get past them. For a true transformation to occur, the mindset that is causing a blind spot requires its opposite. When we access the opposite, we can move beyond the original mindset. Purchase the Habits course Newton’s Third Law also provides an apt metaphor: Every force has an equal but opposite force. The part of you creating a blind spot is missing access to its opposite. Self-change, then, is about moving from eclipse to declipse. It’s a process of balancing the two forces. ​ Step One: Befriend the Thought – Let’s say that you feel controlled by your desire for smooth sailing, an easier life. The first step is to notice that part of yourself. Create a little distance, a little meta-awareness. Name the issue you’re dealing with. Tell yourself, “Wow! I really need to detach from my need for sunny weather.” Befriend this characteristic, and accept it. Even if it’s causing you problems, it is still a part of you – probably an overworked part of you! Step Two: Ask the Thought to Move Away – Gently ask this part of you to step aside. Choose a metaphor that works for you. You could send your need for praise on vacation – it could probably use a trip to the beach! If you’re feeling less extravagant, perhaps you could just treat it to a cup of coffee. Find an imaginative way to send the need somewhere else. The declipse can’t happen as long as your desire for praise is eclipsing the wisdom. Step Three: Enter the Mind’s Inner Sky – Quiet your mind and enter a still place. Like an orchestra conductor, bring all the noise down to silence. Just exist in this blank quietude. You’ve got nothing to do and nowhere to go. I call this space the inner sky. ​ ​ Step Four: Intuition Reveals Wisdom – After a few moments, your intuition will fill this void with higher wisdom. “Choppy seas make a skilled sailor,” it may say. “I welcome the rough days.” The forces inside you will return to their proper balance – the yin and yang. You will be able to recognize that while sunny days are lovely, you grow when the days are choppy. This is the declipse. ​ Outgrowing growth edges can become an important habit, a vital habit of a transformational leader.

  • NEJM Presents Health Coaching

    Recently, the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) published an article entitled “Coaching for Better Health: Lessons from Elite Sport.”  (Volpp K, Camplin-Warner A) The paper was published as a NEJM Catalyst article, which is the journal where NEJM presents innovative ideas to improve and transform health care delivery. To understand the importance of this Health Coaching article appearing in the NEJM Catalyst, we must appreciate the standing of the NEJM as the most important medical journal in the United States and probably the world. This is not mere opinion but backed by the objective measure of Impact Factor (IF), calculated by an independent firm and based on frequency of journal citations in a given year.  The IF of the NEJM for 2022 was 158.5.  To put this in context, the IF for Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2022 was 120.7.  Another example is the Annals of Family Medicine (AFM) which has an IF of 5.70.  AFM is a good journal, with a high IF compared to most scientific journals whose IF falls below 2.0, with less than 2% achieving IF > 10.0.  The takeaway point is when the NEJM publishes an article it is a huge accomplishment – for health coaching to be recognized as an innovative and potentially transformative health care strategy in NEJM Catalyst is a very big deal for Health Coaching! The purpose of the article was to draw a parallel between Health Coaching and the coaching of elite athletes.  Given both these practices have the objective of improving (health or performance), through the achievement of goals and skill building, it is easy to see the broad foundation for this comparison.   The corollary is furthered by describing the “coach” as someone who cultivates motivation, and helps the individual to learn and grow, while engaging in a supportive and caring relationship.  Within this context, the article goes on to emphasize the following points about coaching: engage the whole person – physically, mentally, and emotionally. purpose-led, personalized goal-setting scenario planning, change management, and resilience training improving self-awareness, expectation management, and learning from setbacks forming better habits and routines, and removal of obstacles that cause friction modifying the choice environment so that defaults favor the desired behavior leveraging technology, social support, and enhancing external accountability focusing on the process, not only outcomes, while celebrating personal growth and progress The authors go on to explain that the U.S. Health care system is not set up to support patients to achieve personal health care goals.  Currently, patients typically have inadequate support and are seen as disengaged.  Well-meaning clinicians do not have the time and likely not the training to effectively guide, or coach, their patients. The authors propose an integration of coaches in an innovative care delivery team. Coaching sessions will allow patients to genuinely feel supported by their extended medical team, encouraging them to try harder to change and improve health.  Moving to this model will require a shift in mindset to a preventative, rather than simply treat or fix, strategy.  Further, a change from fee-for-service to value-based care with reconsidering what success looks like needed.  This new system can then emphasize improved patient choices, sustainable behaviors, and outcomes while improving the trajectory of health care costs. Wow – this is tremendous endorsement of health coaching offered by a prestigious and influential organization.  The newly approved CPT reimbursement codes for health coaching are not mentioned in the article and it is probable this paper was written well before the codes were approved.  Over the coming years, these codes should be a tremendous boon to health coaching once the final protocols and utilizations are fully determined.  It is also curious that the National Board of Health and Wellness Coaching or an outstanding coach training program (e.g., Wellcoaches) was not mentioned in this piece – maybe the authors were trying to remain unbiased in their endorsement of any particular coaching agency.  Finally, the authors could have simply cited “The Coaching Psychology Manual 2nd Edition” for much of the information presented.  This publication is an industry-standard, and fully explains most of the coaching principles presented in the NEJM Catalyst article while delving much further into techniques employed by a masterful health coach. Health and Well-Being Coaching (HWC) is quickly rising in esteem as regarded by the medical community.  This can be no better evidenced then a publication emphasizing HWC by the prestigious NEJM in their journal (i.e., Catalyst) which introduces innovative and contemporary intervention techniques.  This point is further evidenced by the recent AMA and Medicare Services approvals of a temporary CPT codes for the reimbursement of coaching services.  The future for HWC is bright ... and that future is now !

  • Coaching Flashback: Coach Meg at IDEA conference in 2006

    In 2006, Wellcoaches was a five-year-old school. That year, Margaret Moore, aka Coach Meg, presented wellness coaching to fitness professionals at the IDEA event. Wellcoaches has evolved and grown tremendously since then. However, as you watch this two-hour training, you’ll recognize the foundational elements that remain today: Mount Lasting Change, the intuitive dance of coaching (generative moment), helping clients craft a wellness vision, making actionable goals from a vision, and how to overcome obstacles.
