What if my strengths are so overpowering that my client is reluctant to share their anxieties and concerns?
What if my rough edges make it difficult to slow down and build the relationship and alliance I need with my client?
What if my aspirations and competition are so powerful that I fail to recognize that our client wants something simpler, more direct and more achievable and short term?
My coaching pact to myself and my clients includes ensuring I balance my strengths and weaknesses to promote an unbiased presence. I will need to bring my most authentic self. I will ensure I face my limitations, blind spots, rough edges in order to strengthen my abilities and continue to learn and grow as a coach.
