Claire writes: ‘In almost every part of our work, showing that we don’t know what to do next can be seen as weakness. Which is why the coaching principle ‘Ask them’ is so refreshing. It translates into other conversations, too. If you have come to a natural break, ask ‘Where are we now? What do we need to do between now and when we finish for this to be useful?’
If we believe that coaching is transformational and the person you are talking to can make an internal shift you won’t know unless you ask. Otherwise you will be coaching where they were 5 or 10 minutes ago and they may be inhabiting a totally new mindset.
Principle 15: Ask them‘
