Virtual Meeting: How to Coach the Person, Not the Problem with Marcia Reynolds, PsyD, MCC

Even experienced coaches fall into the trap of focusing on the problems clients bring to their sessions. If you stay focused on these dilemmas, the coaching feels like it is going in circles because of the emotional attachment your clients have to their problems. In the end, your clients might find steps they are willing to take, but they don’t gain the new awareness that will help them avoid similar problems in the future.

This presentation will help you shift from problem-solving to coaching the human in front of you. You will discover new applications of your coaching competencies, learn three ways to prepare your mind for coaching, and after observing a demonstration of coaching with the presenter, explore what you will do differently in your own coaching engagements.

Takeaways from this event include:

• Shift the session focus from the external problem to the internal blocks that keep clients from discovering powerful solutions on their own.
• Use reflective techniques as well as powerful questions to “vertically coach” deeper into what is keeping clients from moving forward.
• Perform three steps in mental preparation to increase presence and more effectively coach the human in front of you instead of their problem.
