The Power of Offering Observations 

The Power of Offering Observations  | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
As coaches, we have our #1 “Power Tool,” which is our ability to craft open-ended questions that allow our coaching client to dig deeper into their self-knowledge for what they already know, believe or feel about something they are exploring.

However, there is another “Power Tool” we have as coaches, which is the power of offering observations. We have a unique relationship perspective to our coaching client because we are able to offer a neutral, unbiased viewpoint to the client, for their consideration.

Living By Questions, by Jane Hirshfield | DailyGood

Living By Questions, by Jane Hirshfield | DailyGood | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
"In times of darkness and direness, a good question can become a safety rope between you and your own sense of selfhood: A person who asks a question is not wholly undone by events. She is there to face them, to meet them. If you're asking a question, you still believe in a future. And in times that are placid and easy, a good question is a preventive against sleepwalking, a way to keep present the awakening question that's under all other questions: "What else, what more?" Jane Hirshfield, the award-winning poet and author of 'The Beauty,' explains a new way to examine your choices, keep your calm and "carabiner yourself to intimacy."
