Can I coach clients without setting a goal?
Oct 29, 2020 Season 1 Episode 21
Yannick Jacob, Siawash Zahmat & Nicki Drab

Marina is one of the many coaches who I recently talked to about how essential goal setting is to our work as coaches. Can we coach someone without having a clear agenda? Does it need to be SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound)? Is it okay if the goal emerges along the way? What if it’s vague? Should we spend time making it more specific? Is it still coaching if we start a conversation without having a clear anchor to our work? In this episode of Talking about Coaching our hosts Yannick Jacob, Siawash Zahmat and Nicki Drab are exploring all of these questions and more and we’d love to hear your perspective too!
