Be connected by being Observant and Responsive to what the client offers.

  • Observant – notice the client’s words, tone, energy, energy shifts, patterns of speaking, patterns of thinking, processing, etc. Noticing these nuances will help you stay present and connected.
  • Responsive – follow the client’s lead with curiosity and relevance in the moment versus your formulaic observation or question. Examples:
    • You smiled.  What’s happening?
    • I’ve heard you say _____ three times. What’s important or meaningful about ___?  Or, what does ___ mean for you?
    • What are you learning about yourself from that insight?


Inquiry:  What frees me up to be fully present with my client?
