IHW Webinar Series: Connecting the Client to their Perspective
In coaching, we use an approach that ensures the client knows they are in control of the journey and the coach is there to walk alongside them, offering support, tools, and resources with permission from the client. This approach ensures that the client always feels their sense of agency and helps the client understand and communicate their vision, ideas, and reasons for change. Coaches encourage a growth mindset so clients can experiment and find ways to create lasting and sustainable changes. No matter the setting, clients’ outcomes are improved when they feel a sense of agency and freedom of choice when changing behaviors. It is up to the coach to empower the client to achieve a growth mindset and connect their vision with the resources available to achieve their goals. This session will provide an overview of how to elicit the client’s perspectives and why that is necessary to create lasting behavior change.

Collaborating with patients and clients to discover their “why” can be one of the most impactful strategies for sustainable behavior change. Focusing solely on the end results without making connections to intrinsic motivation factors such as life purpose, values, and meaning can leave some patients and clients without the fulfillment needed to maintain a life-long change. This webinar series will provide guidance and tools to explore these personal factors through accountability, self-monitoring, motivational interviewing, and reflection.
