To Advise or Not To Advise - ICF Coaching Framework
As a Master Trainer for my ICF Accredited courses, I often come across inputs and opinions that we must never give advice to our client, all questions must always be open ended, cannot ask any closed ended questions.
Let me bust some myths around the narrow perspective around this and open up a broader principle.
Anger is such an emotion that it can cause tremendous destruction and most importantly - to you, the one being angry.
The Weight of The World
Sometimes it may feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders. And it is too heavy. And you reel under this burden trying to cope the best you can. And it seems to keep getting heavier.
Ask yourself objectively what is it that you gain by carrying this so called "burden"?
Your Journey As A Coach in The ICF Framework
I receive a lot of questions about your journey as a coach in the ICF framework.
What are the steps?
What are the requirements?
What do I do? When do I do it?
How will I make money?
I have put together a short roadmap of your journey. Let me know if you have any questions.
The Poison of Fear
Fear is that poison which works undetected. It's effect is so insidious that goes abut killing whatever gets in it's way and you don't even realize it. Fear gets you to cling on to things, and people and in the very clinging you push those away. Fear gets you to want control by force and control is what you lose. Fear provokes you to be angry, jealous, greedy. Fear makes you hurtful & mean, pushing people away.
