What and How

As you self-coach, you can, and must, slow down enough to see your issues strategically. Coaching focuses on the practical: it is outcome-based and goal-oriented. Concentrate not on why you are doing something, but on what and how. Practice asking yourself the following nonjudgmental questions:

  • What is the issue?
  • What can I do about it?
  • What strategies that are effective “there” can I also use “here”?
  • How can I maintain progress?
  • How can I set up accountability?
