018 - Helping Clients Get To The Root Cause of Their Issue
In this episode, I share a coaching conversation that I recently had with Abd Aref via the Free The Dream Clubhouse Community.
Here is the question that was posed…
Whenever I make a decision, I'd always set out the pros and cons. And then I would predict the outcome. I will also communicate to seek some advice from people who have already made decisions similar to mine.
But the thing is that I ALWAYS GET STUCK in this stage where I always think about WHAT IF… , WHAT IF… , WHAT IF… , WHAT IF… It leaves me emotionally drawn. I cannot sleep. I cannot do ANYTHING!
I would always just have these… (thoughts?)... It could be negative, it could be positive…. But it makes me take long periods to make a decision. And I end up not making the right decision. So what's your take on that?
In the past, I may have focused the majority of our conversation on tips, tools and techniques on how to make quick decisions that will get you further, faster. However, as a coach, I like to get to the root of the issue when a client begins to use language like "I always... (fill in the blank)."
I hope that my sharing this coaching conversation will help you take your own coaching efforts to the next level.
The book I recommended in this episode is Psycho-Cybernetics: Updated and Expanded by Dr. Maxwell Maltz.
