Today I’m coaching Barbara and I begin by drawing out her story.
I discover that she’s an incredibly courageous woman, which is valuable because she then tries to enroll me in a story about how scared she is...
Often our job as a coach is not much more than to NOT buy into the stories our clients are living into.
By the time we are complete she’s had a powerful insight moment and I say “cut!” to my editor.
But I notice Barbara make an audible sigh and relax into her chair.
So I keep the camera rolling. We continue to talk and we go even deeper.
This is becoming so common that I think I might make it a standing agreement, when I record these podcasts, that when I say cut we keep the cameras rolling anyway to see what else will come out! Enjoy…
