Thursday Coaching Tip: How do you give feedback to clients without micromanaging?
Remember - Coaching is never about our opinions or what we think a client should do. Coaching is about helping clients get to their own answers through reflective listening, powerful questions, and direct communication.
When a client asks you, "What do you think?" Turn that question back around and ask them what they think. The client needs to reflect inward and go deeper. We`re so used to the world offering advice and input that we often jump to help, not allowing the client to have a learning moment to work through their issues.
If you do have advice for your client, use The Sandwich Technique. For example: "I got something for you; would you mind if I shared it?" or "I heard you say X" and make your suggestion." Then, ask if it fits what they need.
By doing this, you`re following the ICF Core competencies and staying out of managing the client.
Negative money mindsets can be detrimental and completely paralyzing for both you and your business. Though it is not something that can happen overnight, working on shifting your focus to more positive thinking can have a drastic impact on your overall success.
Don’t shy away from finances. If you want to improve your mindset around money, tomorrow`s First Wednesday is for you! Bring all your money questions to the table!
