As A Coach, Don’t Instruct, Propose!

I used to do this a lot and would go around telling clients what to do, while it worked for some, it didn’t work for many, especially long-term.

Co-active coaching means the coach and the client figure out the solution together, most of the time the coach is helping the client discover the best choice for themselves (since they know themselves best).

Proposing creates options which then allows the client to choose and feel in control, which then turns into better follow through.

Are there times that require telling, sure, that’s part of the art of coaching, knowing when to do what, BUT most of the time this is the better approach, trust 🙂

Try and see how it improves your client experience and results.
