In this coaching demo, I introduced an exercise to support the Coachee in evoking awareness and clarity so that she could reach our agreement for the coaching conversation.

Some things you may notice:

1) I continued to ask questions around the Agreement to make sure we were both clear about what she wanted to get out of the call.

2) I asked for permission to introduce the exercise to make sure we remained on Coachee's agenda for the call, not mine.

3) I highlighted when she said that she is much more clear than she thought she was. Acknowledging someone's clarity supports them in making the connection between coaching and increased clarity. Increased clarity is a benefit that people often get and enjoy from coaching
