Do you know what coaches aren’t supposed to do? Listen in on a Master-Full coaching session and notice what the coach doesn’t do, so you can effectively work with clients who have a lack of clarity on their hopes and dreams.
You’ll also glean valuable insights on what to do:
- Ask the client to explore, not explain, more about his or her goal so you can build trust and intimacy by creating a supportive environment that builds ongoing respect and trust.
- Forward the client’s actions by asking powerful questions so you can establish your coaching presence and employ a relational style of communication that will deepen the client’s learning.
- Develop a coaching style that allows the client to have “lightbulb moments” that will bring them more clarity on their hopes and dreams.
