Will vs Try
The words we use reflect our mental states. As coaches, you need to be aware of these usages by your coachee during your coaching sessions. When the coachee uses:
"Trying" is as good as not doing it full-heartedly. It provides an avenue for the coachee to give a reason or excuse for failing.
"Will" has a higher level of commitment.
Example 1: "Try"
|Coach:||So what will you do as a result of this discussion?|
|Coachee:||I'll try to speak to him and see what happens.|
|Coach:||I hear you use the word "Try". What might stop you from succeeding?|
|Coachee:||Nothing. Maybe time as I am so busy.|
|Coach:||When is it most realistic that you can do that?|
|Coachee:||I'll try to do it tomorrow morning.|
|Coach:||I hear you use the word "try" again. What does it take to do it tomorrow?|
|Coachee:||Ok, I will do it tomorrow.|
Example 2: "Will"
|Coach:||So what do you plan to do after this?|
|Coachee:||I will talk to him and see what happens.|
|Coach:||When do you plan to do that?|
