Coaches Are Naturally Intuitive
When you first start coach training, you are likely trusting your intuition by changing careers and moving towards your passion of coaching. A lot of coaches are in touch with their intuition, and as you take classes and begin to coach this strengthens. You also begin to learn more about what it means to be intuitive.
The Voice In Your Head
In a basic phrase, intuition is trusting the voice in your head. This can be tricky, because in coach training we talk about being non judgmental, it is not about the coach, it is about the client’s agenda. When you think about combing your intuition with the coaching session, it may lead to seeing your intuition as in direct contrast to being non judgmental. This is where many coaches step a bit away from intuition, to learn and trust their insights.
Sometimes it’s necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly. -Edward Albee
When we move through coach training, focus first on the core competencies that develop our skills. Once we learn and understand, we can then introduce intuition back into the equation. That means that intuition is a combination of skills and trusting your inner voice. Powerful questions, active listening, and creating a safe spaces are only possible when our intuition is activated.
