How to Treat People

I ran across this quote today, and it was in perfect timing:

If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be.

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This is important to remember in everyday life, and is also part of the crux of effective coaching.

You should see and respond with eyes that see the truth of what a person is.

By the way, this applies:

  • To your coaching clients
  • To your friends and family
  • To yourself

A side benefit to the transformation of people is the staying in the center of your heart, your Divine place that understands who we all are.
