Do People Really Change?

By: | Posted in: Podcast Episodes | Friday, Mar 20, 2015 - 1:01am

I’m fascinated by change – if you listen regularly to this podcast you may have noticed that.

Change has been the focus of my professional life.

When I started as a psychotherapist, I helped people overcome problems in ways that changed how they lived their lives.

Afterwards, as a life coach, I focused on supporting people to reach their goals and potential. This also implies change.

Now, as a business coach, I assist service professionals to change their mindsets to become more impactful change-makers.

Yet, once in a while, I have friends who ask “Do people really change?”


Learning and Change

The topic of this episode is Learning and Change  – and how can we learn from our relapses, and missteps.

First of all, I want to correct a mistake I did in Episode 23: Understanding Change – and Why Is So Difficult to Change, where I spoke about a specific model to explain change that was developed by a team of psychologists in the 1990s: Prochaska, Norcross, and Diclemente.

I said that according to this model, if someone wants to change a habit or behavior, they will go through a 5-Stage Process.

My mistake was to describe this system with only 5 stages, when the authors speak of 6 stages.

Her mission is to help professionals to get 10 to 15 hours back every week, so they can focus on their health, relationships, and personal life – without feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or guilty.

During this interview, you'll shift your mindset about change.

Understanding Change – and Why Is It So Difficult to Change

By: | Posted in: Podcast Episodes | Friday, Feb 27, 2015 - 12:15am

A quarter of 2015 has already past.

I’m wondering if this year you did any New Year's Resolutions that implied a big change in your life.

The reality is that for most people, even if they honestly intended to change some important aspect of their lives – from exercising more, losing weight, and so forth – probably, by now, they have gone back to their old habits.

If what you want to change is really important to you, please don’t give up or wait until next year to try again.
