Questions I Always Ask My Clients by Coach Mackenzie Pearce

Below are questions that I almost always ask anyone I am coaching. Sometimes I ask these questions in the welcome packet, sometimes when we are goal setting. Either way I thought you may find them useful.

What can I do to most impact your life in the next 30 days?

What change would make the biggest difference in your life?

What are your strengths?

What have you always wanted to accomplish but have never been able to?

What does your ideal life look like?

When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?

What are 10 things or activities that make you smile?

When do you feel most at peace?

What do you want more of in life?

What is your life could be easier? What would that look like to you?

How close do you feel to God?

Do you have a personal mission statement?

Questions You Should never Leave a Coaching Session Without Asking

Repeated Goal Attainment = Successful Life Change

The long and the short of it is that goal attainment is fundamental to changing lives. Whether this is a large goal your client is pursuing or a seemingly small goal there are some steps you can take to help ensure they get there.

Actions Completed Weekly = Goal

Successfully completing manageable actions weekly will eventually lead to successful goal attainment. Actions are essentially anything that will move your client closer to living the best life they can. These actions can include tasks, accessing resources, brainstorming, mind mapping, increasing self worth or working to create a successful shift in thinking (how to do all of which are covered through your classes).

Although the details of this process is covered more thoroughly during your classes, below are some questions you should have answers to prior to ending a coaching session:

  • What will you be completing this week? (Get specifics.)
  • Why will you be completing these? (This helps gain emotional leverage and increase motivation.)
  • When will you be completing these tasks by?
  • How will I know when you have completed them? (Will they report back next session, leave a voice mail or send an email? This is an important accountability step.)
  • How committed are you to completing this action this coming week? (Use the commitment techniques covered in your lessons.)

Good luck, and good coaching!

2 Very Simple Yet Powerfully Motivating Questions

As a coach there are quite a few questions that have the potential to motivate and impact a clients life.

Here are two of my favorites.

These questions are more practical in nature yet are very effective in helping start the process of change.

Question #1:

“What action can you take right now to get you one step closer to your ideal life?”

Question 2 is very similar in purpose:

“What action can you take right now that will help you become the person you dream to be?”

The main purpose of these particular questions is to incite your clients to action.

The Coach’s Questions Module covers questions that can be used in every possible scenario your client can encounter. Talk about helpful!

The Most Important Questions a Coach Can Ask Themselves

You do not need to be perfect to be a coach. You do need to practice what you preach on a daily basis though. You may want to start by answering these questions:

What habits are not working for you anymore?

What new habits can you replace them with?

What areas do you need to improve on in regards to developing your business?

In what ways can you better serve your clients?

What new skills would your business benefit from you learning? (Ask your mentor if they have any resources on this topics!)

What do you want your life to look like in 1 year from now?

What are your strengths and how are you utilizing them?

What are your weaknesses and how are you compensating for them?

Do you have clear business goals (PPS!)?
