It’s a familiar question for a coach: “What should I do?” As a coach, it’s not my purpose to give advice. It’s my purpose to help my clients learn how to make confident decisions and take effective action.
So, when I hear this question, I respond in kind, by asking three questions. Try them when you’re unsure what to do:
1. What is my main goal in this situation?
2. Given my main goal, what are my top two or three options?
3. Among my options, which is the best?
