Every coach has seen lists of powerful questions. Such lists and such questions are neither good nor bad, helpful nor unhelpful. Having clients say “great question” can help build up the fascination with holding such questions dear.
Q: Are my questions for my benefit or the client’s?
Q: Who’s questions are they?
Q: Are they based on my need to understand or the client’s needs?
I have the privilege of being part of an amazing peer-support group that meets every two weeks with one purpose: “to support our development as coaches!”
And yet, as we grow as coaches, we are also called on to do an incredible amount of inner work. Our mission has thus evolved to be: “to support each other as humans and as friends!”
The accompanying content was developed to support this process and has served as inspiration. The hope is that this content may inspire other coaches to set up their own peer-support groups or that it may serve in some other fashion. It is not intended to be the last word on anything!
