The MERE Coaching Conversation is not a coaching intervention in itself: it does not prescribe or preclude how you coach. It is a conversation to improve the efficacy of your coaching if reflexive hindering is curbing the progress of your coachee and their willingness to discuss and take actions that would progress their coaching goals. Research shows that these conversations create a valuable shift in perspective, a subject to object shift, that normalises the response, gives hope/ belief that change can happen and improves compassion, thus opening up new possibilities and invigorating motivation for action.
