 Presentation Description:  

An overlooked benefit we can provide our clients is to use the organizing/productivity project to inspire an anchor greater self-awareness.  You’ll learn communication tools such as: listening for and responding to openings, asking permission to ask bigger questions, requesting data collection via self-observation, co-creating experiments and partnering to learn from each step and stage of the project.  

Presentation Goals:  

Participants will learn how to:

  • Invite clients into a curious self-awareness agreement as part of an organizing/productivity project;
  • Listen for and encourage client articulation without making assumptions or rushing in with your own insights;
  • Follow-up on sessions, client ‘fieldwork,’ and earlier conversations to support and anchor deeper learning and self-awareness;
  • Encourage clients to become the Curious Expert on their own preferences, perspectives, strengths, choices and behaviors.
