Coaches listen with empathy

Coaches create a safe space for exploration and are a non-judgmental witness to another person’s experience. ⁠

Empathy is seeing someone sitting in a hole, and reaching your hand down in a show of support and understanding. Different to sympathy! ⁠

Sympathy is crawling into the hole with someone. It’s much harder to have perspective or to help when you are sitting in the hole next to someone. ⁠

Reach for empathy. ⁠Listen with objectivity.⁠
