Episode 149: Personal Transformation for Social Change: A Coach's Journey of Self-Exploration and Advocacy Joana dos Santos 

Episode Description

I'm joined by an inspiring guest and private client, Joana Dos Santos. They are a coach and have brought their years of experience advocating and fighting for social justice to the world of coaching. Joana believes that to live in a socially just world, we need to focus on changing policies and practices AND the inner work to living these values. Through self-exploration, we can examine how we may be perpetuating unfair systems of advantage/oppression and how to live from an equitable place. As part of their journey, Joana embarked on a path of self-exploration, embracing that they enjoyed having powerful, vulnerable conversations, that lead to healing and growth. This led them to bringing the power of coaching to a new level of depth, through individual transformation for social change. Joana also incorporates working with cycles in their coaching approach.


  • Coaching can support us in figuring out how to align our values and goals to create social change.
  • Creating a safer space for coachees is an important aspect of coaching and is needed to support them as they build a plan to live their goals.
  • Social identities and systems of advantage/oppression impact coaching sessions and coachee goals. Incorporating this awareness into coaching partnerships is key. .
  • Personal transformation can lead to social change.
  • Understanding your cycles and how they can support your healing and growth.
