CCEUs 1.5 Core Competencies

Newer coaches often say they feel like an imposter or fraud because they don’t know how they add value to their client by just listening.  More experienced coaches identify their ability to be comfortable in the silence as one of their strengths as a coach. That is the paradox of Silence.  It’s in the silence that coaches provide the client with time to think so they can find their own answers.

“You should avoid the temptation to break into this space by feeling forced to ‘speed the process up’ or doing something ‘so that the client realizes that you are worth your fees’ (Dembknowski, Eldridge, & Hunter, 2006).  It is in the strategic silence where you add the most value.

Laura has researched Silence and taught many of the strategies to feel confident doing it.  Join this interactive session where you’ll actually practice new strategies for silence.  This presentation has something for both beginning and advanced coaches!


  1. Coaches will better understand how listening is helping the client by learning some research on silence.
  2. Coaches will learn two techniques that can be used to help your client go deeper.
Coaches will practice the techniques to become more comfortable with strategic silence.
