How does one prepare for a coaching session? Get into state! In coaching, you want to set a state that supports you as well as your client. Which states? Strength, courage, curiosity, humor, and openness are some useful states.
As you begin the session, know that it can be like walking through a forest … exploring.
It’s good to know what is on the path ahead of you, but you don’t always know. Pay attention. Watch. Listen. Feel for what is around you.
Walk Gently and Carry a Stick
In Oregon we have lots of spiders, webs, and it is wise to carry a stick as you walk through the forest… just in case.
Theodore Roosevelt wrote a letter to Henry L. Sprague, and said, “Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.” He was talking about advising caution and non-aggression, but be ready if action is needed.
In coaching it is about action. Be ready and set yourself in motion.
