PARTNERSHIP is more COLLABORATIVE than directive

  • Avoid leading/directive language: Examples: “Let’s take a look at this,” Let’s explore your fear,” “I’m going to show you a way to _____,”  Have you ever tried ____?” “Now we are going to ____.”
  • Invite the client’s partnership: Share your thinking or perspective without attachment. Examples: “What is your thought about what I just said?” “This is what my intuition is telling me, but I may be off base. What do you think about ___?”
  • Honor and respect client’s point of view. Examples: respond with a curious question; “What is your limiting/empowering belief about ___?” Reflect: “I hear you honoring your value of ___ in your point of view.”
  • Directive/assumptive: “Which one do you want to focus on? Collaborative: “How do you want to explore those two topics?”

Inquiry: What do I need to release in order to be a more collaborative partner?
