How do coaching principles affect our everyday life? Specifically, how do coaching principles affect our leadership and our relationships? We will explore the four A’s of coaching: Attitude, Actual Listening, Asking Powerful Questions, and Actions.
During this Cutting Edge Conversation we will address some of the questions from each area:
Attitude: What is our attitude when someone walks into our office or a client calls? What is our attitude when we walk through the door at the end of a hectic day? Is our attitude self-focused or other focused? What difference does this make in our ability to actually listen? How does our attitude relate to the ICF competencies of establishing trust and intimacy with the client and coaching presence?
Actually Listening: How do we actually listen - with our minds, our bodies, our intuition, and our words? How does actually listening impact our professional or personal relationships? Is “Actually listening” the same as “active listening” (ICF core competency). How does actually listening enable us to ask powerful questions?
Asking Powerful Questions: This is an ICF core competency that reflects active listening. But, how can we ask better questions? How does asking powerful questions impact our professional and personal relationships?
Actions: How do we transition from asking powerful questions to helping an individual self-identify action steps they want to take? What actions will we take to practice coaching principles/techniques in our personal and professional relationships?
