Questions For Change

Preceeding any coaching relationship, there are always some questions which either directly are asked of my clients or they show up in conversation. These are ones that I firmly believe will help both of us drill down to the core of truth to be dealt with:
  • What are your three distinct personal values?
  • What three areas of self-development would you like to improve?
  • What can you stop doing today which is keeping you from getting what you want?
  • If people hold negative perceptions of you, are they generally true? If not, how are they wrong?
  • What do you want to be happy and what are you willing to do to get it?
  • What will it feel like to get what you want to be happy?

In looking to redefine our lives in one way or another, we need to hold a mirror up for a time to look at the very obvious. After a period of time of doing this, with work, then we exchange the mirror for a window to go and experience our growth realized. These questions aren't the end all however, we all need a starting point and this can serve as a new and different beginning.
