Powerful Coaching Questions

Almost every conversation begins with questions. Getting to know someone better can lead into a more in depth and complete dialogue. This is even more important in the coaching field. The biggest challenge comes in when deciding what questions are the best to ask and each situation can be different, requiring unique question plans. Overall, however, there are some great questions to progress through a coaching dialogue with a coachee. Here are a few:

  1. What would you like to talk about today? This opens up the dialogue and lets the coachee guide the conversation.

  2. What outcome would you like to have from this conversation today? This question can help keep the coach from assuming they know what the coachees intentions are.

  3. Have you dealt with this type of situation before? This may help bring previous solutions or failures out which will help guide the conversation.

  4. What are the limitations here? Hopefully this will cause the coachee to stop and consider more thoroughly. Anytime a question is posed that requires a brief pause, give the coachee the time they need to fully investigate their response.

  5. What does your intuition/gut tell you about this situation? This may provide some insight into the coachee’s mindset or even values regarding their situation.

  imageWhether you are a seasoned professional coach, just getting started with your coaching journey or a current student at Coaching Out of the Box®, this is great opportunity to experience our fantastic Coach Facilitators in action. One way to learn and grow as a coach is to observe coaching sessions led by other professional coaches. Observing can enhance your ability to coach more effectively, refine your coaching skills and be exposed to new ideas and coaching styles. While we at Coaching Out of the Box® subscribe to the notion that the best way to learn how to coach is to coach and be coached, observing others coaching plays an important role in your development as a coach, and is a large part of our Advanced Coaching Skills Practicum.
