There is more to listening than meets the ear. Whether you are listening as an assessor, or a coach, it is important to understand what gets in the way of deeply listening to the client. Deep Listening necessitates re-cognition of the difference between the involuntary nature of hearing and the voluntary, selective nature – exclusive and inclusive- of listening and interpreting.

In this session, Tijen will share the key concepts that impact one’s listening. Tijen will also discuss the most common mistakes she has been observing during her mentor sessions as well as ICF portfolio assessments that are hindering coach’s ability to listen and understand the client and support their needs during the session.

Although this session intends to support the skillset for ICF Competency “Active Listening” by enhancing the ability of coach’s listening it directly impacts the competencies of Establishing Trust & Intimacy, Coaching Presence, Powerful Questioning, Direct Communication and Creating Awareness.
