How do I deal with a coaching client who comes to the session with no agenda?
Play • 20 min

In this episode we consider some different approaches for coaching a client who comes to their first coaching session with no agenda, no goal and perhaps no real hunger to work on themselves. 

Especially when you're starting out as a coach and your fees are relatively low or perhaps you coach pro bono as part of your training, this is a common issue for life coaches.

Coaches in organisations also face this issue often as the client in the room is not paying for the service and so they can be less committed to the process.
