(Great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)


“How can I ….?”


Coaching Point: Most people have the instant reaction of “I can’t” when facing some new challenge or opportunity. An “I can’t” approach leads to a mental lock up. “How can I ….?” leads to fresh ideas, new resources, and ah-ha experiences. The next time you say “I can’t” catch yourself, replace it with “How can I?” and see what’s different.
