Listen Or Advise? 14 Ways To Find The Right Balance As A Professional Coach | Forbes Coaches Council
From the Forbes Coaches Council…
Get Permission Before Giving Advice
When listening to a client, I’m not only listening to what’s being said but also what’s not being said (i.e. underlying beliefs/assumptions). My role is to ask the questions that will help the client determine if these beliefs/assumptions are accurate and how they may impact experiences. When it comes to giving advice, I like to get permission first to make sure the client is open to receiving it.
