DSWA Heart-Centered Listening = Heartfelt Coaching

Posted on January 14th, 2019 by The DSWA

One of the core coaching skills that all good coaches cultivate is heart-centered listening.

Listening is an "aural" activity which is defined as of/or relating to the ear or the sense of hearing.

We can divide our aural activities into:

  • Hearing (recognition of sounds)
  • Listening (recognition of word and sentence meaning)
  • Understanding (recognition of the intention behind everything).

The most satisfying and effective listening is what the DSWA calls heart-centered or heartfelt listening.

It is the listening that allows us to create an unconditional space within which both the coach and the person being coached are heard with body and spirit.

Heart Felt Coaching

Heartfelt listening is what it takes for heart centered coaching.

When you focus on asking clients “open-ended” questions you will be amazed at how clients opened their hearts and minds, take ownership of their ideas, and committed to shifting their paradigms with their own problem-solving ideas when you ask them the right kinds of questions.

Then using heart centered listening you will be able to literally change lives!

Due to heart-centered listening and the adroit coaching abilities I found at DSWA Coach School, I discovered and have put into place practices which have greatly benefited my business team and my family.

It is with sincere appreciation that I submit this testimonial of a few of the numerous changes in my life as a result of DSWA’s Coaching Excellence program, which enables me to help others realize their dreams.
