Our job is to show up from a place of utter curiosity. To ask questions, to dig deeper, and to help you explore your own mind. Ultimately holding you capable for making the plan, gaining the clarity, or developing the strategy.
My sole suggestion when preparing for a coaching session is to drop the facade. Check it at the door. During coaching show up as your whole self. Allow your stream of consciousness to flow. Be your raw, authentic self.
Because ultimately no one in there is going to judge you, but you. With your whole, authentic self you can get a lot accomplished. You can be honest and open with yourself.
Who is your raw, authentic self?
