Be Your Brilliance: How Toni St. Clair Helps Coaches Win With Clients
Toni St. Clair knows how to ask great questions, and that’s just part of why she is a great coach.
We got to know Toni because she asked us a lot of great questions about MBODY360, and generously offered feedback so we could make our platform even better.
When we found out she also works with other coaches to get better outcomes with their clients, we just had to know more. We’re thrilled to share her success secrets with you.
I started as a wellness coach
I am an expert in helping people discover their true self and experience total health through appropriate nutrition, movement, and complementary lifestyle changes to create a life in balance; a life reflecting vibrant health, joy, and fulfillment.
I have training in nutritional endocrinology (using food to manage and manipulate hormones), and I have received multiple, interrelated certifications as a live food chef, plant-based nutrition educator, hatha yoga teacher, and natural eyesight improvement teacher.
Now I’ve transitioned to transformational coach
My work has now evolved into becoming a transformational coach. What I found with working with clients is that the mindset is such a big part of whether or not people will get the outcomes that they want.
The evolution started when I was serving as a functional nutrition coach for my mentor, Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo. I was getting such great outcomes with her clients that I was asked to serve as a mentor coach for other students. From there, I was invited to speak at Dr. Ritamarie’s Science and Holistic Investigation of Nutritional Endocrinology (SHINE) and Spring Into Vitality (SIV) conferences in 2016.
Two keys for success: mindset and connection
There are so many coaches that are great at what they do. They have multiple degrees, they know their modalities inside and out, and they’re a wealth of information.
All of that brilliance can get lost when they are focusing too much on administrative tasks. It robs them of their time and energy for focusing where they excel—in the coaching and connecting with their clients.
I created Coach’s Corner to help more practitioners succeed
I wanted to help other coaches get better results and improve retention of their clients. Better results are all about connecting with clients so you can be present and co-create with them.
That’s why I developed Coach’s Corner. In this new program, I teach a 3-step process to help coaches help their clients with that crucial transition period:
- Setting clients up for success—this is the heart of the matter. What do they really feel? What do they truly want? Getting this helps set the groundwork for the transformation.
- Break the cycle of self-sabotage – This is where the client gets lost. They want to change, but they don’t know how to do it. The coach’s ability to connect helps them break out this old pattern.
- Systems for self-compliance – This is the fancy phrase for using technology to make things easier. I show coaches how to use MBODY360 to shift clients out of old habits that don’t serve them into new ones that do.
MBODY360 offers flexible, seamless communication
MBODY360 makes it easy to create personalized wellness plans, and it takes care of so much of the administrative work that gets in the way of great coaching. It is preloaded with wellness plans, and you can also customize it to suit your needs.
Coaches can look in at weekly journal entries before each session. When coaches meet with clients, they can focus on connection.
I like the MBODY360 text messaging because it allows me to have more regular check-ins with my clients. With a quick message, I can see if there’s an issue that needs to be dealt with right away or if it can wait until our next session. It’s a great way for me to support them that also saves both of us a lot of time and effort.
I love that I can change up the MBODY360 reminder messages that go to clients. For example, I can use the pre-written messages, or edit them so they’re more applicable to my client’s needs.
MBODY360 helps me help coaches shine in their brilliance
With MBODY360, coaches can focus on doing what they do best: being present and co-creating with their clients.
It allows coaches to see which actions their clients are taking each week. Did they drink enough water each day? Did they meditate? Are they going to bed when they said they would? Are they eating according to the plan that they agreed to?
Clients can use MBODY360 to self regulate and reinforce new habits. Instead of staying stuck with symptoms, they become empowered to create new habits and get better faster. And, they end up having better sessions that connect them back to their goals.
