One of the first tasks on a life coach’s agenda is to address a client’s concerns.
A client often chooses to hire a life coach because they seek assistance with overcoming a personal problem, challenge or setback.
For this very reason it’s important for a life coach to obtain the client’s story in order to get a deeper understanding of their concerns, while also attending to their client’s strengths, perspectives and attitudes.
One of the most effective techniques to use at this stage of coaching is to ask the client to create a metaphor that represents their problem. This metaphor will help them to develop confidence while encouraging creativity and solution-oriented thinking.
It’s also critical here to help the client identify the resources they have at their disposal that could assist them to overcome their concerns.
