However missing the human element within her creative practice she then retrained as a coach and mentor, opening Life Design Lab which now offers multiple ways to align head, heart and gut, making wiser decisions possible and generating full self expression and life leadership capabilities.(http://thembrainingshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/doodle1-220x300.jpg)If you are familiar with feelings of being torn between following your heart and doing the whatâs logical or even expected, if you experience being blocked and unable to take steps towards your goal despite having a great âplanâ, then perhaps you are not fully congruent and aligned with your plan. Aligning the intuitive and values driven intelligences that already exist within you can create new possibilities for yourself and your future.Drawing on the latest findings in Neuroscience and combining leading edge coaching techniques such as mBRAINING with years of experience in the creative space, Davia is uniquely placed to teach you some simple techniques that will assist you to become more consciously and consistently aligned with the things that are most important to you.(http://thembrainingshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/doodle2-225x300.jpg)Davia McMillan'sÂ PERSONAL PHILOSOPHYA great coaching conversation creates a space for understanding, choice and action.Effective conversations are the key to finding creative solutions and developing strong relationships that benefit all stakeholders.Everyone can have their needs met inside a great conversation.

They just need me to be there for them. So, you know, I always take 5 minutes, 10 if I can, if I've got it, take 5 minutes just to sit and do some balanced breathing, and to really get present to who I want to be for that person that I'm going to be coaching today.Intro 0:38You are listening to the mBraining show.
