In this coaching demo, I use Client's metaphors. Utilizing the Client's words, language and imagery can support them in reaching their agreement inside and outside of the coaching conversation.

Some things you may notice:

1) Terry talked about emptying the bucket, and I got curious about what that meant to him. He continued to use this metaphor throughout the coaching conversation.

2) When he talked about what he didn't want, I didn't highlight those thoughts. I asked powerful questions around what he did want to be experiencing and around strengths he already had to support himself.

3) I asked a question that didn't land, so to speak. I asked what surprised him. He said he wasn't surprised. This lead to him being very clear and convicted about what he already KNEW. Sometimes, your question may not land how it was intended but something very meaningful can still come from it. Continue to take risks and ask powerful questions as the Coach even when your questions don't always land as intended.
