Marcus Stone : Meeting the Unexpressed Needs of Clients in Coaching
Clients often don't know what they really need. And coaches are human. We need information, stories and external displays that let us know how to respond. But do we always? How do we tap in to the unexpressed human needs that clients are looking to meet beyond their consciousness?
