Coaching Language

The language you use as a coach communicates your true feeling about the person. Remember to serve as a mirror, reflecting through listening rather than telling, using these guidelines:

  • Avoid directing the discussion.

    Symptom: "No, that's the wrong goal."

  • Avoid analysis and interpretation.

    Symptom: "Yes, I know which part bothers you the most!"

  • Describe the future in the present state.

    Symptom: "What will your relationship be like?"

  • Push to the end result, not just next step.

    Symptom: "Is promotion what you want in the end?"
