We all know boundaries are essential to a healthy relationship with any client - and, really, in our everyday relationships as well. Sometimes coaches allow problematic client behaviors to continue for fear of upsetting, or even losing, the client. This sets a precedent that can lead to bigger problems down the road.
As a coach, you need to decide what boundaries are important to you, and identify comfortable physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual limits before starting out with clients.
The coaching methods you will learn grant you the ability to greatly improve professional -- and even personal relationships. Which makes coaching imperative while we all sort through new ways to interact with each other while being apart 6ft, 2m, the length of two golden retrievers, or a single moose.

2. Shift their fear to facts – Ask: What do you know for sure?
It's easy to focus on fear because it's available - the shift we need is to move from fear to facts. A powerful question to ask is "What do we know for sure?" We know we have this fear somebody might get ill. What are we know for sure is they are not sick today. What's the truth of today? What's the what's the truth in the moment.
