Applying laser coaching allows you to go deeper rather than broader, thereby staying more focused, maximizing the time, and creating long–lasting change. Become aware of what you are actually listening for in every conversation. 

Realize the importance and impact of the first question after hearing the client’s situation. The reflection and first question after the client’s situation sets the depth for the rest of the conversation and begins to move it forward. Learn how to masterfully thread questions.

Discover some very simple, powerful techniques and tools, and most importantly a particular, unique approach and "The" QUESTION to hold in mind during every coaching conversation – and never actually ask.

Implement the simple, yet profound way of making any question thought–provoking and powerfulTakeaways:

  • Ask open, thought-provoking, powerful questions that move the conversation forward vs. gather information –- questions that force the client to do the thinking.
  • Become aware of what to listen for so they can separate the situation from the person.
  • Learn how to masterfully begin the coaching conversation after the client’s story and understand the significance and importance of the first question. 
  • Learn how to uniquely listen to clients and let them know they have been heard and become aware of context and threading in the conversation.    
This will be a powerful and thought provoking class.
