Getting Through To Dad
The following is an excerpt of one of David’s coaching sessions in Top Coaching Techniques.
Client: It makes total sense. It would just be total shock factor for my dad. I mean, we don’t talk as closely as I’d like to as a rule. For me to suddenly to come out with something like this…
David: Yeah. I get it. That’s why I gave that tip on placing him, and you might need to do a little more. As a matter of fact, I’ve called people I haven’t spoken to in twenty years and told them I’ve got something to apologize for. Do you think they didn’t find that a little unusual? So, I just told the truth. I said, ‘You know, you might find this a little bit strange – I feel a bit strange in calling you – but I just got some clarity. I realize something that I haven’t been sharing with you and I want to do it now. Do you have a couple of minutes just to listen?’ That’s all you need to do.
Client: I’d really like to get to that.
David: I know you’re able to do it, and I totally get this is new for you. This isn’t something you’ve practiced every day. I’m just saying, would you call your dad after this call and to treat him as your dad – treat him as someone who really does want the best for you – and just share with him what’s been going on with his little girl.
