Coaching challenge

Here is a coaching concept that anyone can master, but few really have. The coach must be present with someone and completely free of their own agenda, their own story, their own instinct to play verbal tennis with someone. You talk…I talk…you talk etc. The coach says..the only story that matters here is yours, and my role as listener is to help you focus on what you want to accomplish or work through. No answers matter except those reached by the person being coached. The desire to fix things for people or offer advice is not the coach’s role. Sounds simple, but may take a lifetime to master, so strong is the idea that every conversation is about US.
