I am posting a short piece that I sent to a coaches list to-day. You might find it useful…..
Since I believe that ‘who you are is how you coach’, I think that having total detachment from clients and their issues is an impossibility – a fiction which our profession gets caught in. We are not automatons – we come with history, personality and beliefs. The intention to be detached comes from someone! The intention is fine, but let’s not leave out the person who has decided to be that as far as they can.
