The following is an excerpt of an actual transaction between David and a client in Top Coaching Techniques.
David: Yeah. Okay, fair enough. This is great because I know you’ve distinguished here that you’ve wanted to exercise four times a week, but you’ve actually got a structure in your life that’s taking away from that, which is having your boyfriend over a lot. Right?
Client: Mm hmm.
David: Which is wonderful, but it’s just not supporting you in that area of your life, which is exercising and letting your brain switch off, and like that.
David: How would this feel for you if you actually, for the next month, for the next 30 days you exercise four times a week?
Client: I would be a different human being.
Client: I know this already.
David: Yeah, so we’re on the right track with this, because I like to check in that we’ve got the right goal.
David: That sounds wonderful. Now I want to ask you, because we’re almost there – we’re almost there and you’re going to be alone four times a week, so that’s great – now does that feel handled to you, or do you want to keep going in terms of structure? Because there are more structures you can put in place.
