The Art of Giving Up the Need to Know: Expand Your Listening Presence and Curiosity.
Now this is fun stuff!
In this session we are going to take two core competencies - Active Listening and Powerful Questioning - and turn them into your coaching SUPER POWERS! I know for a fact that each one of you is a great listener and is skilled at asking questions. You wouldn't be here if you weren't. My guess is that you have probably been utilizing and strengthening these skills your whole life and/or career.
Whether it is our busy mind's need to know the answer, the "right" question, or the details of a situation etc., our attachment to "knowing" limits our ability to expand our listening presence and diminishes our curiosity. In this presentation we will dive deeply into what it means to give up the need to "know" and give you tips to expand your listening presence and curiosity. It has been my experience that the most powerful questions come from deep contextual listening. Therefore, the key to unlocking Powerful Questioning as one of your coaching super powers is to deepen your capacity to listen.
