Reflect on Your Observations
In class you had the opportunity to observe, or be part of a live coaching exchange. Reflect on what you learned and write a Note-To-Self to retain that awareness. Tip: Re-watch the class video to pick up other ideas and insights.
Consider these questions to craft your note to self:
- What worked well?
- What did I learn by observing this coaching session?
- How will I integrate and/or incorporate this learning into my coaching?

Recap of Requesting
Requesting is a way to inject a different perspective, causing a pause in the current thinking pattern of the coachee with the intention to move the client forward towards their goal.
It is an advanced skill because it takes a refined ability to Listen, to ask power Questions, an effective use of silence and experience with the pace of a powerful coaching exchange.
