The episode explores the critical importance of “The Pause” in coaching practice. Both Hannah and Lyssa share invaluable insights on how pausing to process thoughts or giving clients space to make deeper connections can dramatically enhance the coaching experience. Building on this theme of pausing, they discuss its role in fostering intentional coaching sessions. They examine how allowing space for clients not only aids in their immediate goals but also helps them connect those goals to their broader life’s purpose.
But that’s not all. The duo delves into the vital role of understanding a client’s values in the coaching process. With compelling anecdotes and references to psychological studies like Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, they agree that identifying values is pivotal for self-directed change.
In addition, the conversation ventures into the realm of value-driven communication in relationships. Hannah reveals how her own values influence her communication style, particularly with her husband and clients. The discussion emphasizes the need for intentionality in our connections and decisions, even touching upon the often-tricky territory of people-pleasing.
Finally, the podcast focuses on the significance of active listening and self-care in coaching. Hannah underscores the ongoing learning process involved in coaching and shares her passion project on ‘Business Well-being,’ aimed at promoting self-care among business owners. She also recommends the book ‘Building a Story Brand’ by Donald Miller for those interested in enhancing their coaching communication skills. This episode is a treasure trove of coaching wisdom, from personal anecdotes to thoughtful insights.
