Building Upon Strength

Building Upon Strength

In coaching, it is up to the client how their agenda is approached. Sometimes their focus is on the lowest point, or where the fragility seems to show. In building a coaching relationship, sometimes a client is unsure of where to begin and shies away from deep conversation, so finding a path inward might prove to be a bit of a puzzle. When the coaching relationship is built upon rapport with vision, strengths, and values at the core, weaknesses become part of the puzzle and an opportunity. Exploring the client’s strengths and building trust creates a space for deeper, more thoughtful parts to open up.

Identifying what is working, where there is potential, and where there are strengths that give a client the feeling of achievement. This often offers a conversation with bigger vistas, opening new ideas about how growth potential may take place.
