How much of what our clients intend us to understand say do we hear accurately?
How much of our own bias is involved?
What’s the difference between when we hear accurately what our clients mean, and when we make assumptions or bias what we think we heard?
As coaching and consulting professionals, we need to hear what’s been meant. Our jobs, and our client’s goals, depend on this. But sometimes we make assumptions that are inaccurate that cause us to lose clients, or set them down the wrong path. Sometimes we hear a biased version of what’s been said and as a result, believe our clients may have problems beyond what they say they have.
What’s stopping us from hearing as accurately as we should? And how can we correct ourselves if it turns out we might have misheard or misunderstood?
This webinar is complimentary for professional coaches and consultants.
