I am going through a coaching training program that’s been truly amazing. It is helping me build skills that will directly impact my everyday job, which involves consulting and coaching attorneys, but I am also seeing how this impacts my everyday life. How I communicate with people and how I can take the skills I’m learning to impact potentially everything that I do.
Today, I had to do an exercise with some of my other coaching participants. It involved being a coach, a participant or an observer. The participant had to set up a problem he or she had and the coach and observer put together a metaphor that would then guide the participant to a potential “Aha!” moment, relating the metaphor to the problem that they had. The goal was to have participants utilize real-life problems, so that the exercise was authentic and genuine.
Having struggled this past week with a few things, I had my problem ready to go.
