    In this interview, Emergo’s co-founder Dave Kenney interviews and visits with Coach Dave Buck of Coachville.com. Coach Buck is one of the top 10 most influential coaches in the world in the profession of life coaching. Together they explore the role of coaching and ‘play big.’

    Good coaching is about helping people engage in playing life, giving clients just the right amount of challenge so they can keep building their confidence, helping them set realistic goals (is the game winnable?), and stepping towards what they want. They also discuss the difference between therapy and coaching and who can most benefit from a life coach.

    Coach Buck introduces the 3-B’s of human transformation: becoming, believing, and belonging.

    Introducing Emergo Radio! We begin our new podcast by exploring the questions that led us to create an entirely new evidence-based approach to addictions recovery and wellbeing. More than a decade ago, Dave Kenney wondered, are imbalances in the brain a source of self-destructive behaviour? If bones can be healed, why not the brain? If the brain can rebalance and recover, how?

    Answering these questions led Emergo to create Actualized Recovery, a progressive, integrative brain-first approach that leaves nothing to chance. We begin this two-part series by digging deeper into what we know about the brain science of recovery and the five keys to improving brain health and your happiness.
