Taking a Collaborative Approach to Coaching

Years ago, I worked with a few mentors who took a prescriptive approach to coaching where they focused more on telling you exactly what to do than on exploring solutions together. That kind of coaching works for some people but I quickly learned it wasn’t right for me - not as a client or as the coach - because I preferred a more collaborative approach. In this episode, I talk about the moment I learned that I prefer a collaborative approach to coaching and take you behind-the-scenes to explain how I’ve made collaboration a cornerstone in my client work. I touch on how I make it clear that I’m in partnership with my clients and share what this approach looks like day to day. I also get honest about the tradeoffs and benefits of this approach for both me and my clients.    Book a Discovery Call with Ashley to learn more about working together: https://ashleymgartland.as.me/discoverycall   Learn how to create more time with my private podcast Do Less, Live More: www.ashleygartland.com/dolesslivemore   Learn more about Ashley: https://www.ashleygartland.com/   Connect with Ashley on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/ashleygartland/
