KMCC is a combination of 38 years of research and creative wellness group facilitation and creativity coaching since 1997 provided by Jill Badonsky with augmented tools by Robert Maurer, Ph.D, UCLA psychologist, author, and internationally renown workshop leader.
It is an unprecedented model of coaching that takes into account the resistances and sensitivities of the individual wanting to experience progress with creative endeavors or simply wanting to create a positive change in their lives. KMCC's distinctions include small steps that create big changes, compassion versus pressure, real-time experience to build momentum, and targeted strategies for overcoming fear, overwhelm perfectionism, and procrastination.
KMCC also includes approaches that nurture the kid-like spirit of creativity, permission to be non-linear, guided relaxations, clarity into the workings of creative success, and ten original tools that simplify the creativity coaching process.
We believe that creativity coaching works best in real time not just through the email. Dynamic experiences, intuition, imaginative guided exercises, a compassionate-accepting relationship make the value of showing-up for coaching go beyond typical accountability models with the pressure of additional work especially when the initial problem is feeling overwhelmed.
"The design of the Kaizen Muse coaching is unique; like nothing else I’ve ever seen in the coaching world. One of the most useful parts of the Training Manual is the section on 'Kaizen Muse Creativity Coaching Ten Tools.' These tools operate in a different part of the brain from what’s accessed in coaching for 'results' or 'performance.' The tools are effective with clients at any stage of development, and they can be taken off the shelf the minute the coach recognizes a pattern of thinking or behaving. Specific applications of each tool are provided with detailed instructions. What can I say: It’s a gold mine!!!"
“Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” ~Howard Thurman
