How holding space helps our clients go deeper


49. How holding space helps our clients go deeper

I am naturally a talker, I talk to think, I talk to process and for many years I talked to fill an awkward silence.

So how does somebody who loves to talk, who talks to process, who talks to think become a coach?

As a coach, silence is our friend: silence gives people processing time, silence means that people can really think and consider their answer, silence doesn’t have to be filled

Silence is one of the simplest tools in the coach's toolkit and surprisingly can take a while to use as a tool!
