"Extroverts need to talk to someone to process their thoughts." How true! Being an extrovert myself, I could identify with this statement. Yet I have a higher proportion of clients being introverts. Why would introverts need a life coach since they do not process their thoughts through talking? I realised over the weekend when a friend said, "Extroverts need a life coach, for obvious reason. Introverts has a higher need! Because they do not usually speak, they need an outlet to air and to process especially when it does not come naturally, they need an intentional process like life coaching." Wow! What an insight!
The coach sets out to “help” her client reach her goals. In the process, the coach realizes that questions asked not only pick on the client’s mind but also on the coach. Truly conversations are dynamic. The coach never knows what questions she may ask (depends on what the client shares) while the client never knows what she will share (depends on what the coach asks). Principles discovered by the client through the conversation intrigues the coach. A timely reminder that “Each person at work has his/her value. We just need to discover that value and acknowledge to ourselves and to each other.”
