Claire writes: “I had a startling revelation this week when I was in conversation with Ruth Davey for the podcast on 24th May.  We were talking about learning to see – and that some people notice much more than others.  I suddenly realised that coaching is a conversation where someone feels seen and gets new insights into their own stuff.  Up to now I have always talked about coaching being about feeling heard.

Sharing my insight on LinkedIn, someone asked what’s the difference?  I wonder what you think? I often feel heard, but for me feeling seen is an even more precious gift. What will it look like to give the precious gift of feeling seen to people you meet this week? ”
