589

Melissa Roberts is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She is a relationship coach and she impressed us with her easy, simple, yet effective approach to coaching.

She is the CEO and founder of Living Whole, LLC, where she gets the opportunity to coach, train, and consult people to reach their goals.

Her approach is unique in itself. It’s simple, effective, and it almost feels like you speak with your best friend. Before and during each session, she uses God’s guidance and a pen and paper. As she says “less is more”. It’s up to the client to set the framework, she is just there to give guidance, care and unconditional support.

Turns out that through each conversation, the client becomes clearer and clearer of their path, and they feel immensely supported to start walking it. They feel safe and cared for, knowing they have someone in their corner who always advocates for their goals and keeps them accountable to take action. Here is what she said.

Name: Melissa Roberts
Pillar: The Spirit, The Mind
Who is this coach for: Women to get clearer on their life purpose while enhancing relationships so they can achieve their goals.
How they can help: Through self directed learning and guidance by simply utilizing basic principles and strategies.

First of all, how are you and your family doing in these Pandemic times?

We are doing well, keeping the faith and continuing to walk out our purposes everyday.

How does the coronavirus pandemic affect your clients? Did it affect you at all?

Well, I have noticed the anxiety of clients has increased but it’s only because people forget to use what comes natural.

What I mean by that is, our brain is a very complex tool but even in all of its complexities, we were all made with automatic mechanisms to help us through difficult times.

We must choose what is the best and healthiest way to deal with all the unanswered questions we all have. We must guard our hearts and our minds, in that we speak positivity when it is needed.

Now with that being said, there are times where sadness, anger, feelings of uncertainty are necessary because we are responding in a natural way, but when we do not choose to release ourselves from the thoughts of anger, sadness, feelings of uncertainty, we are making a way for our bodies to always be operating from a fight or flight mode.

We must choose the healthier alternative always so our mind, body and spirit are aligned properly.

During the pandemic, much of what I do today in my coaching, speaking and consulting business, was birthed out of the pandemic.

I wanted to give from the places I felt isolated or hurt, and encourage women not to get stuck.

What are the biggest lessons that you learned in this pandemic?

People have something to say and a story to tell but often don’t know how to express it.

People want to be better but don’t know what their blind spots are.

People want to walk in purpose but find it scary and don’t know that sacrificing for something you are passionate about is what you should do for your peace.

The Origin:

Tell us about you, your career, how you started with your coaching career?

I am CEO and Founder of Living Whole, LLC where I get to coach, train and consult. I help women get clear on their life purpose so they can achieve their goals.

I also am a trainer and consultant. I lead executive training for organizations that want to look at ways to enhance the workplace and strategically map out ways to meet attainable SMART goals.

I must say that I have always been coaching, even when I worked in corporate America, I worked my way up the corporate ladder and was able to speak into the lives of the sales reps I was responsible for.

I began officially coaching in higher education through career services.

I later took a leap of faith and launched my own coaching business and I love every minute of inspiring, encouraging, and advocating for the women in my community.

What was your biggest obstacle that you had to overcome in your life that made you who you are today?

That would be when I was 6 months pregnant with my youngest son and I was told by my doctor to consider terminating the baby.

That day sparked the day when confidence was no longer a word I only dreamed for myself, but that was the day I modeled it for every woman and girl I know.

I said NO with assurance that I get to make this choice and I did.

The Coaching Style:

How do you innovate with coaching your clients?

Well I really feel this is an art. Coaching is an art.

Anyone can say they are a coach but are you passionate about your fellow man? Do you have a heart felt interest in helping people achieve their goals, dreams and making their visions become realities?

I bring to my clients a genuine and authentic heart to improve in all areas of life.

Mind, body and spirit are the 3 entities of life a focus on and they are all connected. If one is not aligned with the others or is weaker, the link can be easily broken.

The link of mind, body and spirit creates a strong life bond to rise to the standard of living your best life with a sense of peace and confidence that one is operating in their area of purpose.

My clients know I care. I am a lifelong learner and always looking for ways to serve my clients with new and creative information that works best for them, however, I love engaging in self directed learning, so my clients come to conclusion based on our interaction during session.

What’s unique about your coaching approach?

I make sure the individuals are comfortable and know they are in a safe space. I encourage them to be open, honest and transparent and that I will not force my beliefs on to them. Like I mentioned earlier, my clients set the agenda and I follow the vision of the organizations I choose to serve as we work together to achieve their goals.

I always let them set the agenda for the session and I always check their mind, body and spirit before we get started to ensure I know right off the bat how they are feeling in the space they are in.

Because I want my clients and those who attend my training programs to feel some level of accomplishment, I always end with asking them what is one takeaway from this session and what is one thing they can do TODAY to bring about a positive change in their situation.

What benefits do your clients get after working with you?

They get the benefit of knowing they have someone in their corner who will help them to be accountable to reach their goals and dreams. They also will leave their session or training with action items and takeaways for them to ponder, reflect and transform their way of thinking.

Do you use any specific tools to be efficient with your clients?

Less is more, I use a pen and notepad with some questions I ask at every session.

I choose this very simple way because I want my clients to know I am all in during our session.

The Impact:

If you had a super megaphone that, when you speak into, the whole world will hear your message, what would you say?

This is a fantastic question and I will have to use this one. It is awesome!

I pondered it for some time and I guess it would depend on if I only get one encounter with the world.

If I only get one time to speak to the world, I would say: You are uniquely and wonderfully made and you are not a mistake. You were created with gifts, talents and a purpose to fulfill. We walk this earth together with a divine purpose and we need each other to make them happen.

What is the greatest lesson you have learned in your life?

That I am enough because God is enough for me!

Because of the work I get to do, my clients hearts, mind and spirits are in my hands, so to speak, so I don’t take for granted that I need my faith and my spiritual walk in tack so I show up excellent for them, everyday.

Your final thoughts?

To walk in my God given purpose everyday, is absolutely amazing and sometimes overwhelming.

Overwhelming, because what I get to do is much bigger than me and I couldn’t do it without the foundation I have in my faith and the heart I have to continuously seek to grow and learn.
