Michael Neill's Coaching from the Inside-OutCoaching from the Inside-Out Self Study ProgramI began working with private clients in 1990, and since 2007 I’ve worked exclusively in a modality I call Transformative Coaching, or more colloquially, “supercoaching”. It’s grounded in three simple principles and designed to bring out the deepest resources in us as human beings – literally unleashing the human spirit as a way of helping people get more out of themselves and more out of their lives.

Over the last eight years I’ve trained hundreds of people in what I call “the inside-out understanding” and worked with thousands more on trainings, retreats, and one on one intensives. I’ve also written two bestselling books about it. The first, Supercoach, was an attempt to give the reader the experience of being coached by me over ten sessions; the second, The Inside-Out Revolution, is a comprehensive introduction to the principles behind the inside-out understanding and their implications for how we live our lives.

The most comprehensive training I offer each year is called Supercoach Academy, a professional training for helping professionals looking to reignite their passion for working with others and transformative coaches or clinicians seeking to deepen their grounding and make even more of an impact with their clients. But I also love to just “talk shop” with people who want to make more of a difference in the world, so in 2012 and 2014, I also offered a more intimate three day workshop called “Coaching from the Inside Out“. This was a chance to get straight to the heart of the inside-out understanding as it applies to working with others. No supervision and nothing to memorize or practice – just a deep dive into what it is to be a spiritual being having a human experience and how we can help ourselves and our clients have higher performance, deeper connections with others, and a richer experience of life.

After months of editing, I’m excited to be able to share a “self-study” version of Coaching from the Inside-Out with you. Through a combination of streaming video and downloadable audio sessions, you will learn the core principles behind transformative coaching, and explore and deepen your personal grounding as a coach and as a human being.

You will also learn how to:

  • Listen at a deeper level than you ever thought possible
  • Tap into the driving force behind human potential
  • Go beyond motivation and willpower to leverage the critical variable in performance
  • Get better results with less effort and less stress
  • Assist your clients in making significant breakthroughs in life, business, and relationships
  • Awaken the well-being and unleash the hidden genius hidden at the core of every human being
  • Build your practice and coach other to grow their businesses from the inside out

Most importantly, you will have the chance to watch and listen in on a number of “real-time” coaching sessions where I work one on one with participants in front of the group so you can experience how this powerful way of coaching actually works.

I loved every minute of Coaching From the Inside Out. I would recommend to any coach whether at the beginning of their journey or way down it, that this experience will significantly shift your philosophy, attitude and behaviour for you as a coach. Such a refreshing and revitalising way to look at how to coach someone (and oh yes of course your own life…) The only slight problem is you realise it is difficult to reconcile with what you were doing beforehand as a coach- and you now want to talk about coaching very differently! Which is a very liberating place to be.”

-Piers Thurston

Here’s a brief excerpt from the program where I share how this approach differs from conventional coaching:

Coaching from the inside out isn’t just about getting more out of a person in the moment. It’s about pointing them towards the source of great performance until they see it for themselves and can connect with it almost at will. It’s less about setting someone’s emotions on fire than re-igniting their divine spark, which feels like inspired well-being on the inside and looks like a twinkle in their eyes to the world.

story-sydThere is a beautiful story about the spiritual teacher Syd Banks talking about the inside-out approach with a man who was considering changing careers and beginning to work with people in this new way.

Syd said:

“We have the most wonderful job in the world. We find people in various stages of sleep. And then we get to tap them on the shoulder and be with them as they wake up to the full magnificence of life.”

And that’s the promise of the inside-out approach. Sometimes, our clients feel more at peace and have a more wonderful experience of being alive. Other times, they feel more at peace, have a more wonderful experience of being alive, win the big game, and drive home in a Porsche. Either way, the world is a better place for having them (and us) in it.

What’s the difference between insight-based learning and traditional teaching and training models?

Insights are those wonderful ‘Aha!’ moments when we’re able to see something about ourselves, our life, or life itself in a whole new way. People often call them ‘light-bulb moments,’ because we see things in a new light that makes them look less fixed and less scary than before. If there’s anything to be done, we do it without the need for any additional debate or willpower. In these wonderful transformative moments, we discover a fresh new way of seeing something that we may have been looking at for ages. We suddenly ‘get it’ – not intellectually, the way we might understand a concept, but at an almost cellular level, the way we either get a joke or we don’t, even when we know that it’s supposed to be funny. Quite simply, insights change our world.

So while traditional teaching and training is based on either adding information to our personal databases or installing new habits or behaviors through repetition and practice, insight-based learning is designed to help you see for yourself what’s true and what isn’t. Whatever you learn via insight is yours for life – because you actually see it, no amount of rationalization or push back from the world can take it away from you.

Here’s how I talk about it in the program:

Everything in your self-study program is designed as an “insight catalyst” – a pointer in the direction of what’s true in life, as opposed to an argument for the most useful lie. As we see more truth, we experience more new thinking and a river of insights begins to flow. And when an insight is sufficiently profound, its impact on our life is transformative. Nothing changes on the outside, but everything’s different on the inside. We experience a vertical leap in our level of consciousness and gain new perspective on our old way of being in the world.

I sometimes compare the contrast between the collecting strategies and learning via insight as the difference between climbing a ladder and taking the elevator. When we see our own strategies, tactics, and willpower as the primary motive force in creating change, we do our best to soldier on up the infinite ladder of consciousness, climbing ten rungs today and slipping back down eight tomorrow. But when we see that consciousness itself is the greatest transformative force available, we simply step into the elevator of insight, hanging out in the unknown and looking into the mystery of being alive. While we don’t control the timing, each time the doors of perception open we emerge from the elevator on a higher floor, with a new, clearer view of life. Of course, at times the elevator may go down as well as up. But once we’ve had an insight and seen the view from a higher floor, we can never really forget it.

Sally“I was on a day out with a friend on Saturday going to see the Poppies at the Tower of London and then on to Broadway Market. We hopped on a bus between the two and it took us along Whitechapel. It brought back good memories of the CFTIO weekend and reminded me I’d wanted to email and say thank you to you, Michael and all at Supercoach for a really special occasion. There’s an Irish description I like – which is referring to how you feel about being somewhere as – “it’s like being round your Nan’s”, so like being home, but somehow even more that bit cosy and loving. The CFTIO weekend was definitely one of those times. To feel at home so quickly and completely with a group of people (for me none of whom I’d met before) is special indeed. So thank you all for everything that had to happen to make that so.”   Sally Coleman


Why do a self-study program?

One of my coaches once told me that great communication is like great sex – in person is best, but video is the next best thing to being there! While the home study format can’t replicate the one to one feedback and mentoring available on our live programs, it does have certain advantages of its own:

1. You can go at your own pace and go back over different lectures, Q&A, and coaching sessions as often as you like.

2. Because you will get both streaming video and downloadable audio, you will notice different things when you watch and listen. It’s like going on a roller coaster ride with your eyes open and then closed – you’ll see more and feel more than if you only did one or the other.

3. With your three month bonus membership in the Transformative Coaches Cafe, you’ll get the chance to ask me questions and get coaching on problems that come up with difficult clients or building your practice. You’ll also be able to share your insights and spark more by “comparing notes” with fellow teachers, practitioners, and students.

Will this help me grow my business?

The poet Robert Frost once said “Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can’t; the other half who have nothing to say and keep saying it.” In my more cynical moments, I think that about the coaching world. Half the profession is made up of people who can really make a difference but don’t know how to grow a sustainable business; the other are great at making money but don’t make that much of a difference with their clients. A part of my mission with both Supercoach Academy and the Coaching from the Inside Out Self-Study Program is to redress that balance – to help great coaches make more money and great sales people and marketers to make more of a difference.

Here’s a slightly longer clip from day 3 of the program which addresses two different approaches to building a business – one from the outside-in; the other from the inside-out:


Want to learn more?

driveOur first Coaching from the Inside-Out event back in 2012 was a life-changing three days for nearly everyone who attended, and the 13+ hours of recorded materials have been enjoyed by hundreds and hundreds of people since that time. We’re including it at no extra cost as part of your self-study program.

We are also including three additional bonuses as part of the Coaching from the Inside-Out package, each of which you will get instant access to when you order:

Bonus 1: Living from the Inside Out
A copy of a talk I gave at St. James Church in London to over 350 people.

Bonus 2: Enlightened Success Interview
An interview with me by Jamie Smart, author of The Little Book of Clarity, as a part of his Enlightened Success series which really highlights the essence of what makes the inside-out approach so powerfully simple and simply powerful.

Bonus 3: Effortless Success Video
This hour long video was recorded at a live event in London where I shared the 5 “secrets” to creating success without striving, suffering, or stoking the insecurities of yourself or others.

“Coaching From the Inside Out wasn’t like any other course I’ve attended before. Michael sitting up front with two flipcharts, just talking. I think that over the course of the three days he only wrote a few words. He captured my attention from the moment he started sharing the concept of ‘Inside out’ coaching .I found that my sense of hearing and listening went through the roof. I was so in tune with everything that at times, I felt my body tingling with the experience. I can’t really tell you what I learned on the course, as to me it was more about having the experience. Have my coaching skills improved – without a doubt. The sessions I have carried out with clients since then have been more powerful and effective. It’s stretched them and me to a place I didn’t know was possible. I’ve even used it with my 13 year old son – who keeps asking me to do that ‘coaching’ stuff with him whenever he has a challenge. He then uses it on me which is very spooky at times. Knowing that I have all the resources inside me and can just allow my mind to find it when it’s ready is so freeing. Thank you Michael.“
