June Sterling is one of the coaches that we found this month and we did a little interview with her. She impressed us with her passion and expertise.

Her odyssey into coaching began not with a formal decree, but with an innate understanding of human struggle seeded in personal experience. From the tender soil of familial challenges to the vast expanse of global connections, she has forged a profound coaching style rooted in empathy, trust, and the transformative power of genuine connection.

She paints a vivid portrait of her evolution, from the corridors of healthcare settings to the dynamic realm of online personal development. Enriched by encounters with luminaries like Eben Pagan and Annie Lalla, she embarked on a journey of self discovery and global camaraderie.

Her coaching prowess, honed through diverse landscapes of emotional support and leadership development, is a testament to a life shaped by resilience and unwavering belief in the dignity of every soul. With each client, she establishes a sanctuary of trust, where vulnerability finds voice and transformation blossoms. In this sacred space, clients emerge emboldened, equipped with newfound resilience, rekindled connections, and a roadmap to self nurturance. She uses various tools but the most powerful instrument remains the compassionate ear, attuned to the whispers of the soul of her clients. Here is what she said.

Name: June Sterling

Pillar: The Spirit, The Mind

Who is this coach for: Anyone who wants to create that inner safety that will allow them to move forward in life while taking care of themselves.

How they can help: By using various tools and techniques, but most impotrantly, Listening.

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

Thank you for inquiring.

Myself and my family are doing well.

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

Yes, it did.

Like the collective, “us”, and what I will be sharing in next week’s Newsletter… my client’s describe in a variety of ways what I have come to define as a loss of sparkle, an inertia, a disconnect.

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

The biggest lesson I learned from the pandemic is what we knew already (in theory) that yes, life can change on a dime such that our best laid plans and dreams can be disrupted and even dismantled in a flash.

It sounds a bit cliché and maybe a bit haughty, but for me…

“The Lesson”: learning to intentionally build the best version of myself, physically, mentally and emotionally so that I can confidently (and fearlessly) navigate any changes in the external world and, with that… be able find the hidden lessons, the treasures and the opportunities that emerge, as a result.

The Origin:

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

I would say… my informal coaching career began many years ago when I recognized the struggle and loneliness that lived inside my own family.

Back in the day, acknowledging and getting help was so laden with stigma and shame that most people lived through incredible windows of stress, sadness and loss… such that I recognized very early the value of having someone to trust and share disappointment, heartache and loneliness.

I found I could be that trustable person in many settings and with many people while withholding judgement and just allowing the free flow of thoughts into words and with that, a healing that opened the door for communication from a place of gentleness, genuine interest, and strength.

Later, as a member of many diverse teams and specialty areas inside of multiple health care settings, coaching in the form of offering emotional support and care was a valued role that was very much my particular area of interest and passion that I feel certain was felt and experienced by many patients I worked with.

Around 5 years ago, just by way of an accident on purpose, I landed with Eben Pagan who was, at the time, introducing online professional and personal development programs.

From one program to the next, he projected a style that was direct, clear and concise along with material that was innovative and accessible for anyone in pursuit of that next level awareness and growth.

Through Eben, I would go on to meet and share space with many coaches throughout the world, including, and most especially his wife, Annie Lalla.

I joined their Virtual Coach program where myself and 30+ others learned and grew in the company of the Virtual Coach Team, and each other as coach and coachee throughout the year of the pandemic.

I have remained inside of the coaching world since building skills, rapport and friendships with the finest across the globe in many specialized areas including Women’s Coaching and Heart and Relationship Coaching.

Beyond that, I have been in many diverse settings with business and entrepreneurial related coaches where I have been privy to elite coaches in the area of the Business Development and Leadership Skills inside of organizations and teams.

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

The early loss of a parent.

The Coaching Style:

How do you innovate with coaching your clients?

The Innovation that lives within my coaching style and process is very much linked to the natural unfurling of another human being when honored, respected and witnessed inside of a trustable private and confidential setting.

Underlying… is an unshakable belief in the process of creating a safe place where one can experience and feel the freedom to explore and discover some aspect of their relationship with self, with another or some yet to be defined area of their life that has yet to be named.

What’s unique about your coaching approach?

I don’t know that it is unique, but it is something that I felt I brought to my sessions as a nurse, as an educator, as a nurse practitioner and now as a Coach… and that is, a full awareness of the dignity of every human being.

And touching their soul and their sadness, their sense of “not good enough” and their sense of “unworthy” with a gentleness and strength that is safe, confident and loving.

What benefits do your clients get after working with you?

A sense of being able to create an internal safety that allays some of the anxiety associated with extended periods of aloneness.

And secondly, the ability to take action via small steps in the direction of creating daily rituals that lead to being more proactive around reaching out and reconnecting with family and friends.

And, thirdly, taking on self care in a more intentional way that has led to increase in energy levels and improved sleeping patterns.

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

Honestly, I have gleaned and gathered many tools along the way from every wonderful, highest level Coach who has patiently and kindly stood for me and for my personal growth as a Coach (capital C) and who has shared generously and graciously so that I might, in the best right moment… be a source of inspiration or discovery for my client.

However, the one specific tool I continue to value above the others and continue to hone to a level of excellence is Listening.

Listening with a desire to truly understand and with that, the ability to follow up and ask a powerful question that will best serve my client and be another step closer to the clarity and the vision they so desire.

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 not to exclude men in any way, but it would be a shout out to every woman on the planet to say… particularly in this era with so much focus on the unique style, power, and influence of women… on the days we have witnessed (and continue to) the pointed, focused travesties, injustices and physical, emotional and sexual violence (in all of its forms) directed at women from government nations, (and directly and indirectly, to their children) every woman should be standing tall, strong, together, unflinching, unrelenting and shouting… No More!

A call out to both sides and to all sides, to every side… we take no sides… except for the side of any woman mercilessly beaten, maimed, starved, killed and raped… we will tolerate that no more!

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

With each day comes new opportunities to start over and to learn.

Your final thoughts?

Thank-you for your interest.

Your questions generated so many interesting thoughts.
