Every so often, a client will show up to a coaching conversation saying: “I don’t know what to talk about.”
When this happens it can be tricky to know how to respond especially because it can trigger fears many coaches including myself have. Fears that we aren’t actually good at what we do, fears that we’ll run out of things to coach around, and fears that we can’t possibly justify the high fees we charge just to ‘talk to us.’
However, this is actually an amazing opportunity, if you understand why it’s happening and learn how to serve your clients powerfully from this place.
In this guide, I offer some of the most common problems I’ve encountered with clients who claim they have nothing to talk about, and offer some ideas for how you might address this as a coach. Of course, I don’t want to give the impression that this list is comprehensive or that these solutions are perfect.
