If you are ready to move beyond your current comfort zones and reach for a new level of mastery in your coaching, consider these qualitative tips for guidance. This is the 1st in a 13 part mini blog series that will share Thirteen Coaching Mastery Qualitative Tips. I hope you enjoy them! – Fran Fisher MCC


“Be With” the Client versus “Do To” the Client

Being with the Client = being fully present; listening for who and how the client is being (values, strengths, beliefs, etc.); responding to (words, language, emotion, etc.) Paying attention to the subtle nuances of the client’s shifts of energy, or changes in direction.

Doing to the Client = problem solving, asking leading questions, offering unsolicited suggestions, offering your own analysis (“So that means____.” Instead of asking “What meaning do you make of that?”)

BEING WITH is being a conduit for emergence;  DOING TO is a focus on performance and methodology.


Inquiry: What does it mean to be fully present?  What is the impact of my authentic presence with my client?
