The Coaching Paradigm: Asking vs. Telling

by Tony Stoltzfus

At its heart, leadership coaching is about helping people solve their own problems, not telling them what to do. One of the most difficult changes beginning coaches must make is learning to ask questions instead of giving advice. As they struggle to get used to this new approach, the following kinds of questions invariably come out:

  • “Would it help if you’d keep track of how much time you’re spending on that project?”
  • “Could you just come right out and say something to her about the problem?”
  • “Do you think you should talk to your pastor about that?”

To see what’s really going on, simply cross out the first several words of each question, like this:

  • “Would it help if you’d Keep track of how much time you’re spending on that project.”
  • “Could you Just come right out and say something to her about the problem.”
  • “Do you think You should talk to your pastor about that.”
