After beginning work with a new client, I often spend a few months helping them understand how to best use my coaching support. There is a period of presenting options for deeper work together. Over time I’ve started capturing the various topics I’ve worked on with my clients in our coaching.
If you are a curious voyeur or tire-kicker here is a partial list of ways I’ve supported my clients:
Prepare you to give feedback to an employee or colleague by providing a specific format, prepping a script, and doing a practice run.
