When coaching goals no longer matter22 Feb 2016, Posted by Monthly Blog in
You know that achieving the coaching goals you set don’t really matter, when:
- a question stops your client in her tracks to the extent that she can’t speak and her eyes can’t leave yours as she’s gripped by the possibilities in the answer
- you have one of your sessions walking in Regents Park and he finds the perfect metaphor for his leadership in the one of the statues that you walk past
- your client cries because he’s just said something out loud that he’s never said to anyone – even himself – until now and he knows the truth of it
- all she needed was space, to breathe and to be. Nothing else. No agenda.
- what you offer is appreciation, valuing and recognition and you see that’s like giving water to a very thirsty plant
- your client says ‘thank you: no-one has ever said that to me before’
- your client feels seen. Truly seen. By you.
Are you looking in the right place for what makes your coaching truly matter?
