CURIOSITY about the larger impact or deeper meaning of the presenting goal
- Coach is authentically curious about who the client is:
- no need to drive his/her own agenda
- no need to be the expert of the client or their agenda/issue
- no need to perform skills, knowledge, or experience (ego)
- Coach is willing to be vulnerable (soulful)
- TIP: when you catch yourself starting to TELL, TEACH, OR OFFER AN ANALYSIS, pause and say the word “WHAT” instead. Then trust that a curious question for the client will follow that word. That way you will keep the focus and attention on the client instead of shifting it back to you. For example: Instead of “I think you should _____.” Ask, “WHAT do you want to do about that?”
Inquiry: How fully am I willing NOT to KNOW?
