How important is it to trully listen to your clients?
Why is life coaching a non advisory profession?
How does listening impact our communication skills?
If we really want to make a bigger impact in our lives, improving our communication skills is the only way to do it. Find out in my video below the best way to develop the best communicational method and interact efficiently
Our communication skills are directly linked with only one thing—active and meticulous listening. The most outstanding leaders are primarily people who listen thoroughly before they talk, and actually, they do not speak that much. This is why life coaching is so effective! It is based on listening!
For a life coach to engage in coaching, it takes a lot of active listening. The more you listen to your client, the more proficient you are in mastering your coaching skills. It’s not an easy task, no doubt. After all, we are humans, and it’s inevitable to shape our own opinion based on thoughts and experiences people share with us.
Everybody is entitled to his opinion, but the real virtue of effective life coaching is to listen and not to talk back. We are coaches who do not provide advice; that’s why it’s not essential to share our perspective.

Active listening lowers our self-righteousness instincts for our empathy and deep understanding to emerge.
And this is the most significant step to be there 100% for our clients!
Do not think it a lot. It is definitely a major step towards a better life.
