We live in a world in which effective communication is becoming increasingly challenging but increasingly necessary. Perhaps surprisingly, the concept of communication is a highly complex one. The authentic intent behind a communication is subjected to filtering based on the receiver's unique internal map or mindset, and is therefore easily distorted.Bill considers this issue in this podcast and proposes a simple yet powerful way to prevent many of the misunderstandings that happen in the communications jungle.
In this episode, Bill presents and discusses eight of the key assumptions, or principles, that form part of the philosophy on which the transformational service of life coaching is based. These are drawn from the content included in the New Insights Life Coach Training and Certification Programme.
The world is changing.Slogging away at a job for 40+ years to try to assure a comfortable retirement, is the stuff of the past. The digital world is turning the way we think about our careers on its head."How much money can I make?" is no longer the key criterion for choosing a job. "How meaningful and fulfilled will I feel?" is the key question driving the new approach to job selection.
Right now we seem to be surrounded by negativity in the world, what with wars, violence, political tensions and rivalries, and natural disasters on an increasingly destructive scale.But that is how it seems, especially if you remain consumed by the stuff dished out by our mainstream media.However, there is a different perspective that offers a new way to look at life and it has its roots in wave theory!Join Bill as he explores this.

Enjoying a meaningful life in which you contribute constructively to the world, is the foundation for positive and sustainable mental health.
The journey of life throws up many apparent roadblocks that can leave us frustrated, disillusioned, hurt and even feeling like we have failed. But there's another more positive way to look at these 'roadblocks'. That is simply as 'detours' that provide learning opportunities and offer tantalising new possibilities for growth and development.As Bill explains, the inspiration for this podcast comes from a Malawian national currently living in Cape Town, South Africa.
Motivation, and staying motivated, is a challenge for all of us; for some more than others. In this podcast Bill explores this topic and offers four powerful insights to improve motivation and help stay motivated
We have the power to choose what to believe and not to believe. So, it may seem counterintuitive that we would choose to believe things that inhibit our ability to enjoy the life we truly deserve. And yet, most of us harbour limiting beliefs that serve to hold us back. In this episode, Bill explains, using a hypothetical example, how limiting beliefs develop and how, through life coaching, they can be eradicated and replaced with beliefs that empower us to be all we can be!
The value of self reflection, as part of the learning process, should never be underestimated. Whereas the learning in itself is important, reflecting on that learning adds substantively to the overall experience as it offers the chance to understand what works and what doesn't work. This adds a new dimension to the learning and promotes one's future effectiveness. 
Most of us spend our lives in reactive mode, simply trying to weather the turbulence and constant change, to survive and cope as best we can. And yet, each and every one of us is perfectly capable of leaving a significantly positive mark on the world, perhaps not immediately, but over time. Doing so is easier than we probably think. But it does require the courage to visualise big dreams and to commit to some small action to get the process of change underway.

In our world, routine is common and an accepted part of what makes society work. But for individuals, busy routines kill off introspection and creativity and falsely make us believe that who we are comes down to how we are seen through the eyes of others. In this podcast episode, Bill explains that we need to step away from routine in order to start the process of going within, so that we may explore who we truly are and start really living!
In this second part of the podcast, Bill visits the Change Cycle and the different stages that we go through when trying to bring about much needed change. Regression, or relapse, is an inherent stage in the cycle that most of us have to contend with. But with the right understanding of why it occurs and a few tips, we can overcome this temporary setback on go on to manifest the change we so desire.
For most humans, substantive change is both scary and difficult to bring about. This is because we battle against inbuilt programming that causes us to avoid anything we perceive as potentially painful. However, the ability to change and adapt, in an increasingly turbulent world, is vital if we are to survive and prosper. In this podcast, Bill shares some of the ideas that we can gain from life coaching to make it easier to bring about change.
