There is nothing more frustrating than ‘beating around the bush.’ In the coaching space, the best coaches give their clients the gift of direct communication.
Sometimes, your client cannot articulate what they are trying to say. They haven’t yet figured out just how to say it, or words may not be expressive enough to describe what they are experiencing.
This is where a great coach will come in with a metaphor or analogy to help the client find the right words to finally say what they really wanted to say.
Remember to match your language to what the client values and respects.
