Asking Permission

I would like to respect my coachees boundaries by asking questions such as “May we work on this issue?, “Can I tell you what I see?, “Would you like some feedback on that?”  It is important to remind the coaches that they have the power in the relationship and the coach knows the limits of  their power.    This dynamic is slightly different in a consulting engagement because here the coachee takes responsibility  for managing the relationship versus the consultant in a consulting engagement.
