Helping Clients Prepare for a Sticky Converstaion

Speaker: Patricia Porter, ACC
CCEUs applied for

As coaches, we are there to support our clients in reaching their goals.  And often, in interpersonal conflict, clients feel a sense of dread about the idea of having a sticky conversation, especially if it’s been put off for a long time. Regardless of the situation, you can coach a boss in addressing a direct report, a spouse in sharing his/her concerns, a family member in confronting another relative, or a business partner in speaking up with another partner -- by helping them raise self-awareness, set an intention and get clarity on their key messages.

In this dinner presentation, Patricia M. Porter, LCSW, ACC, addresses the following ICF Core Competencies:

  • Active listening
  • Using powerful questions

Participants will have the chance to practice using the tools and strategies presented in this talk, and will leave with a list of powerful questions to use with their clients.
