Invite Client to Lead and Offer Choice

  • In establishing the Coaching Agreement, invite the client to LEAD. Ask the client what she/he thinks she/he needs to address to get to his/her desired outcome or measure of success. Avoid assuming where to start coaching towards the goal. Examples:
    • What issue (s) need to be addressed?
    • What aspect of this issue is most important to address?
    • What needs to be resolved in order to achieve this outcome?
  • Throughout the conversation, invite LEADING and offer CHOICE. Examples:
    • “Where do you want to go from here?”
    • “Of those ___ you listed, how do you want to start exploring?”
    • “What would you like to start with?”
    • “Would it be helpful to ___ right now?
