Coaching prompts: Real accounts from coaching sessions
Coachee: I was in one industry and then made a move mid-career to another industry. I have been promoted to senior roles in both industries. I’m looking for a new senior role, but I don’t think they want someone with my limited and unique experience.
Coach: What do you really want?
Coachee: I want to figure out how to tell my story.
- What prompted you to choose the initial industry? What prompted you to make the mid-career move?
- How do you define “limited” and “unique”?
- What is the importance of being in a senior role for you?
David’s Final Thought: People will listen if you have a compelling and thoughtful story to which you and they connect.
