Coach Interview Series: Lane Kennedy
Our main objective here at the National Coach Academy is to enable aspiring coaches to reach their full professional potential. One of the most effective ways to educate students about the world of coaching is by offering them a window into the world of real, practicing coaches and showing them all the different ways coaches make a difference in the lives of their clients.
We hope today’s interview adds another insightful glimpse into the dynamic world of coaching.
Today we are interviewing Lane Kennedy. Lane is a Meditation and Mindfulness Coach based in San Francisco, California.
NCA: Can you describe your coaching practice and the kinds of clients you typically work with? National Coach Academy Coach Interview Series: Lane Kennedy
Lane: I work with a variety of clients and I teach them about finding more space in their life — especially with my corporate clients. They’re so overwhelmed with work that it’s like, “How do you relax?” A lot of my coaching is around becoming more mindful and de-stressing, eating properly, taking breaks — everything that we think is basic but for some reason, we have lost touch with.
NCA: What initially got you interested in becoming a coach and what were some of the motivating factors behind that decision for you?
Lane: I think I was already coaching without knowing it. National Coach Academy Coach Interview Series: Lane Kennedy Everybody was already coming to me and someone finally said, “Why don’t you just become a coach? Why aren’t you coaching and earning a living by doing this?”At first, I had no idea at the time that this was a viable way to make a living. From that point, it was just a natural progression.
NCA: In working with your clients, what would you say is the most rewarding part of that process and on the flip side of that, what is the most challenging aspect of the work that you do?
