Coaching Through the Discomfort Zone: How to Have the Guts to Create Breakthrough Moments
Have you ever asked these questions?
What do I do when my client feels stuck but I’m not sure what to say?
I am told to be more present so I can hear what the client really needs, but I am not sure what I can do beyond what I’m already doing. What else can I do to be more present and listen more deeply?
Being direct with my clients often triggers their emotions. How can I be more comfortable with both direct communications and allowing the emotional reactions of my clients?
The purpose of the session is to give coaches a concrete way to spark amazing change. In this scenario, discomfort doesn’t mean “bad.” In fact, if you become good at creating the discomfort zone with challenging reflections and powerful questions, your coaching will result in more opportunities for profound new awareness.
