Helping clients identify and prepare for Dreadful Questions is pretty foundational to my coaching practice. It’s pretty simple, but it gets in front of all kinds of confidence issues, career limiting habits, Impostor Syndrome — I could keep going. Having a good story prepared helps you short cut around those issues.
I decided to write this column in the first person — about myself — so I could be transparent about my thought process. I wanted to show from the inside how empowering it is to have a good story prepared.
In any case, many of my clients who read this blog post will nod their heads in recognition. Don’t let dreaded questions tie you up in knots.
