Claire writes: “This thing we do, that we call coaching, changes lives and organisations. It’s also not magic. It’s not weird. And it’s not me doing something to you. If your experience is that’s what has happened in a conversation, be astute.
A coaching style is having a conversation with someone. What’s weird is that it’s a conversation between two people about one person. Be normal! What’s distinctive is that when we learn to stop doing all the things that stop transformation happening, the results can be extraordinary.
So if you’re using a coaching style at work, there is no need to start calling your colleague a client or a coachee. They are a person. And if you want to try this way of working out, ‘Would it be useful to have a different kind of conversation?’ is a great start!”
