Sometimes when I am coaching my clients we can seem to hit a wall. When this happens I am always frank with them. Sometimes this leads to positive movement as was the case yesterday on one of my calls.The client was having difficulty moving forward and last week I made a few stern suggestions. On this weeks call he revealed some personal information that explained a lot and I could hear in his voice a renewed energy and commitment. I don’t advertise this, however, overcoming personal issues can often be a bi-product of the business coaching. It’s always best when my clients are open and transparent.
