The real message

The latest article in my reflection column has been published in ‘Coaching at Work’.  It explores the opportunities and traps inherent in the first coaching session with a new client: on the one hand it’s a precious opportunity for the coach to gain perspective on the big themes of the client’s story, and on the other it’s potentially an elephant trap for a range of assumptions the coach might make and the unconscious messages they’re conveying – not to mention the fact that the new client is making assumptions about the coach.  E-mail for a copy of the article or click here to read online.
