How To Have a Powerful Coaching Session

STEP 1: ASK GREAT QUESTIONS

WHAT IS A POWERFUL QUESTION?

  • Open ended question starting with “What’ or “Why”
  • A question asked with genuine curiosity
  • A powerful question question that prompts the client to a new perspective
  • It invites the client to expand their thinking and removes blocks.

HOW CAN YOU ASK POWERFUL QUESTIONS?

  • Listen carefully to what your client is saying.
  • Listen to what is “not being voiced’ as well.
  • Ask yourself, what am I curious about here?
  • Start with the word “What” then complete the rest of the sentence.
  • Don’t base your questions on assumptions.

NOW WAIT…

  • Give your client the time to respond.
  • Allow for quite spaces during a coaching session
