One of the fundamental pillars of a coach is his ability to take his players to a point of reflection where they realize their reality and the options they have, their ability to embark on the path brilliantly and effectively in search of the best path Towards your goals.
Knowing how to listen to who they are and what they want will help you focus your questions and adapt them to each of their worlds to make them think, feel or react differently about the context in which they want to develop, will help them break with limiting patterns or Preset ideas will change their vision of what they are capable of doing or not, it will make them JUMP UP to get out of your comfort zone where you have been all your life and give you the possibility to change your results.

Before being a leader builder you must have solved what you want, who you are, who you want to be, and what you want to achieve, you know yourself in order to know and help them get to know each other.
