"Two tips, one preparation. I find that the frustration emerges when you need to come up with coaching topics in the moment. To alleviate that, knowing that practice is part of the program you are in, do some preparation beforehand. Set a timer and give yourself some time to write down potential topics using questions like what do I want more of or less of? What can I use the safe space of coaching to talk through? Having those topics allows you to readily pull them when you need.
Second, zoom out. Frustration can increase when you are so focused on finding a topic adding one more thing you need to do as part of your coaching program. Zooming out from the current moment to higher level allows you to see the landscape - to remember to reconnect is your intention around coach training. This allows you to reconnect to your goal and expand potential topics you want to use." — Rosa Edinga, PCC, Coach Facilitator, Mentor Coach, COTBx
