Acknowledging and Validating with Renée Waggener

Renée Waggener inspired Season 3 of How I Live Through This. As a flight attendant for Alaska Airlines, Renée used humor and kindness to set the tone for a flight I was on. I knew I had to meet her.

We hit it off instantly talking about the transformational power of how a person shows up. Turns out, we’re both iPEC trained coaches. The difference between us? Renée uses her coaching skills not as a coach but as a way to connect to others in her job – with far reaching implications for everyone on the flight. Together we came up with the idea that giving people space to be heard and seen is like being an undercover coach. Season 3 took flight in that moment.
