Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching


The Muse is In Creativity Workshops/Retreats/Communities




Simple Steps, Uncommon Results


Kaizen” is a Japanese word for continuous improvement made through small steps.

The word “Muse” in this context represents the ten creative principles personified as "Muses", derived from the books and writing of Jill Badonsky.

Therefore, Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching is using these creative principles to make continuous improvement through small steps in any creative endeavor.

Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching tools are memorable and can apply not only to creative pursuit such as art and writing, but to any aspect of life where creative thinking can make a profound difference.

Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching takes into account the dynamics of how humans approach the creative process, fosters “awareness” as a powerful tool in and of itself, and has a non-linear, unique approach that helps individuals use existing strengths in combination with intuition, acceptance, in-session experiences, and upgraded common sense.

KMCC works particularly well with people:
  • in resistance or rebellion
  • who doubt they are creative
  • with immobilizing perfectionism and chronic procrastination
  • experiencing feelings of overwhelm, lack of focus, or fear
  • having difficulty starting or restarting
  • needing support and structure in a non-threatening, low pressure way
  • who understand that creativity has no ceiling and want to go deeper
  • anyone who loves the creative process and wants ti explore more
Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching™ (KMCC) is a trademarked model of creativity coaching designed by Jill Badonsky, M.Ed., with added elements from Dr. Robert Maurer and his book, One Small Step Can Change Your Life the Kaizen-Way. More »

"Jill Badonsky’s KMCC training course provides a fresh look at how to work with people momentarily seized by perfectionism, overwhelm, and/or procrastination Kaizen Muse Coaching methodology is brilliantly counter-intuitive and staggeringly effective...I’m humbled after nearly 2 years of active coaching to discover how to pinch both sides of the client’s brain and watch the exponential results. The approach is fresh, irreverent, funny, fun and very, very effective. I love it" — Shirley Anderson, MS, MCC, IAC-CC

"Celebration time---and you are the best teacher--so patience, kind and so experienced to lead and guide--this class is simply put--if that is possible---amazing, eye opening and life changing.  Wow." ~Michele Batz, Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach

"Thank you, again, for opening this door for me. Not just for the business, but as a whole way of being, and doing, and expanding into the world. Last year this time I felt like I was being gradually choked to death by a constricting, ever decreasing reality. I’d begun to fear that my life would just keep getting smaller and smaller, but now the world is expanding all over again. I’m encountering new ideas and meeting new people and it’s a wonderful thing." ~Kerry Schafer, Mystery/Fantasy Author, Certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach
