A-430 Coach’s Personal Foundation – Level 3


The third component of personal foundation is the set or processes, methods and values that drive our behavior – HOW we do the things we do, and HOW we are WHO we are.  The fuel for the HOW of us is the WHO, which essentially yields the WHAT. The practical and application sides of learning and growth happen in the HOW.  The learning begins in the WHO but translates out into application in the HOW.  The actual “work” of personal development most likely happens here, and most directly affects the growth of an individual.  This is where new behaviors and skills are practiced, cementing new behaviors.
