Top 7 Epiphanies- June 1, 2016 - Author: Adrian Ruiz


A Sudden, Clear, and Quick Reflection: My Top 7 Epiphanies as a Strengths-Based Coach in the Field of Human/Youth Development During the Last 10+ Years

1) My curiosity is appreciated more than my certainty. The questions I ask are more powerful than my answers. This epiphany makes the next six even more important. 
 
2) Check my head! Suspending assumptions about people and situations makes me a more approachable coach. I love being surprised by who a person truly is; their hopes, fears, vulnerabilities and concerns. In order to do that, I have to truly put aside the things that may cloud my judgment (title, first impression, clothing, you know- the silly materialistic stuff). 
 
3) I use a q-tip before each coaching session. My clients pay decent money for my service. If my ears are not ready to 100% listen I'm not giving my best to the person(s) expecting my best. Everyone can fake listen, but as a coach I never want to be asked the dreaded words "Are you listening to me?".
