A Coaching Power Tool By Mark Wavle
Agile Coach, UNITED STATES
Required vs. Invited power tools help customers identify desired conditions, find areas they can choose from, and explore new areas of possible next steps. As coaches, we must empathize with the client’s perception of the circumstance and, rather than analyzing or correcting that perception, make space for them and their reality. When we take this attitude, we prioritize our client’s connection over all other considerations. Our clients notice this and instinctively understand that we value their autonomy. This understanding allows us to provide invites for them to consider switching from Requirement to Invitation.
