In this blog I want to convey the learning that is created with clients.  So many people out there are telling us how to do this, how to do that, top 5 tips for this, what to pay attention to, etc.  But the fundamental principle of coaching is that it is asking, not telling.  It is partnering with the client to enable the client to solve their own problems, have their own “ah ha!” moments, and develop themselves further.  I want this to be a place where I explore themes in multiple clients, insights that we discover together.  Yes, I’ll be drawing on my knowledge and I’ll point to things I’m reading, but this blog will mainly be about what is emergent in my work—the insights clients have that may be more broadly applicable to others, shared in a manner that protects confidentiality, and hopefully inspires the reader’s own reflection and growth.
