Based on your reading of Leadership Coaching chapters 13–17, what elements make for great questions and why? Secondly, what are the primary factors that influence success or failure in the coaching process? In the coaching process, the best questions for coaching a client successfully are open ended questions bigger questions and also probing questions. Each type of question has their place in the coaching process and each plays a significant role in the process. Stoltzfus (2005) explains that questions are the main tools a coach uses to focus a conversation, foster exploration, push the client to dig deeper and reach higher, and ensure commitment. It is best when the coach keeps questions simple, communitive and the flow easy so that the client finds the questions to be helpful. That is why an open ended question is best in most cases. Open questions keep the client in charge, there is no right or wrong answer, and they do not put people on the defensive during the conversations (Soltzfus, 2005). They allow the coach to come up with more to talk about as well as the conversation has an easier flow to it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
