A Glimpse of My Conversation With My Client:


I – What MBA class do you enjoy the most?

C – Leadership and Communication styles

I – Share with me about your learning

C – I want to practice communicating concisely

I – Say more about it

C – I want to be intentional about my eye contact and concise content delivery

I – Got it. Let’s give it a try. Tell me about your Leadership style

C – ……

I – It’s concise; what is the hiccup about at the end?

C – Oh.. when I noticed I was not making eye contact.  I think I need confidence and practice.

As a professional coach,

I focus on what the client is and is not saying to fully understand what is being communicated in the context of the client systems and to support the client’s self-expression. (1)

I facilitate client insight and learning using tools and techniques such as powerful questioning, silence, metaphor, or analogy. (2)

In order to accomplish the above two, I am fully conscious and present with the client, employing a style that is open, flexible, grounded, and confident (3).

These coaching skills you can apply to your teams as a leader or your teens as a parent for effective communication. It takes confidence, practice, and tons of personal development work to master these skills.
