The Purpose of the Shaman's Trials

This is a story of the coach that meant well, and why it is that shamans typically have to endure such trials and hardships during their training.

As many of you know, I'm currently enrolled in a master's degree program in leadership and organizational development, with a focus on coaching. The first 40% of the program, the part I'm in now, consists of a graduate certificate in leadership and executive coaching. As part of the program, I have been paired with a buddy coach, and she's been wonderful to work with. She's all of the things one could want in a coach: she's caring, logical, insightful, and truly wants to do a great job.
