In Tune with Intuition BY ANN BETZ One of the most important items in a coach’s toolbox is access to his or her intuition. Our ability to know or sense what’s going on with our clients without being told helps us connect, understand and empathize. It enables us to hear what’s below the surface and guide the conversation to deeper, more resonant places. We all use intuition, but there tends to be little agreement about what it actually is. And without a clear understanding, it’s difficult to understand exactly how to develop, refine and attune it. 24 Coaching World | August 2013
