Hi Brooke ~ I would like to hear how YOU would handle this situation. Your sister calls you to vent about disliking her new boss. You have received a ton of these complaining calls and your coaching mind has been seeing beneath the surface. You listen and know that she is creating pain and suffering for herself with her thoughts. Do you subtly offer her thoughts that you know would make her feel better about her dealings with her boss or would you just listen and acknowledge her frustrations with him, or do you say; “sister, do you want me to share a tool from my coaching box that will help you feel better? I speak with other certified’s and they too seem to struggle with conversations with friends and family members now that our brains are trained to take full responsibility for our own life experience. Thanks for this AND for being the best coach on the planet! xo
