Silence - one of the most powerful interventions during a conversation. Yet, so many people are deeply uncomfortable when nobody’s talking. Many coaches, especially when they’re starting out, are overly concerned with providing value or not to make the client feel uncomfortable, that they often fill silences quickly during a coaching session. Sometimes it’s best to speak, sometimes it’s best to hold an uncomfortable silence. What do coaches need to know about how to use silences in their practice? How might we contract for it? When are they not useful? And is it still coaching if we were to spend the majority of our time not talking? This and more we discuss in today’s episode. We hope you find value in it.
