Notes de l'éditeur

  • Say less and ask more questions: Gus Irisa, Agile Coach @Elabor8
  • What is coaching? It’s more than trying to solve problems.
  • Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
  • But by saying less, you can change the way you lead.
  • People naturally end up providing advice rather than listening and asking more questions when they coach. But the alternative is simple.
  • It’s an effective habit to build; give less advice, and start asking questions.
  • Stop thinking that you know best how to help, and get comfortable with silence.
  • Step 1: Ask, ”What’s on your mind?”
  • Step 2: AWE question: And what else (Options - Reality/Solution)
    More options can lead to better decisions and better decisions lead to greater success. Ask this question with genuine interest and curiosity. Ask it many times and once the person really doesn’t have more options, then you can share your thoughts if absolutely needed. This question can be asked in multiple situations, e.g. after “What’s on your mind” in order to explore the reality of the coachee, or to generate more options for solutions, or to push deeper about what is the real challenge.

  • Step 3: The Focus question: What is the real challenge here for you? (Reality)
    This question make people think more deeply. Focus on the real problem not in the first one. You will coach the person in front of you, not the ghost.
    This stops abstract and general conversations (People speaking about us/we instead of me, or academic, high level conversations).


  • Step 4: The foundation question: What do you want + softener (goal)
     It is hard to answer, often a very deep question. Its intent is to get to the need behind the request. (want vs need. e.g. pocket money).


  • Step 5: The Lazy Question: How can I help?
     Coachee will make a clear request. This question stops you from thinking that you are the best to help. But be careful. The wrong tone of voice can be harmful. You can add before you ask, ‘out of curiosity’, or ‘to help me understand better’, or ‘to make sure that I am clear’.


  • Step 6: Saying ‘yes’ mean saying ‘no’ to other things
    Say ‘yes’ slowly. Good ‘busy’ instead of just be ‘busy’. Stay curious before committing.


  • Step 7: What was useful for you?
     This question assumes that the conversation was useful, and gives you feedback. Your coachee extracts the value of the conversation and they will remember how useful it was.
