It’s one of our guiding principles to coach the person, not the problem. That includes helping them define what is the heart of the matter.
Focus has always been a common theme among my coaching clients, and it’s off the charts right now, no doubt made worse by the pandemic.
As coaches while we want to follow the client, and match them, I also want you to show up – YOU as an individual.
How learning to pause gives coaches the freedom to really listen.
This coaching question creates a time for the client to pull everything together and synthesize what has happened during the conversation.
