Brian was reading Tim Hicks book, Embodied
Conflict, and came across the term "Maybe Capacity".
We can create a type of
understanding that allows for the coexistence of mutually
contradictory accounts, what might be called a “maybe capacity,” a
looser attachment to hypothesis formation that allows us to be
receptive to, and to convey our openness to, each party without
fully subscribing to their account or to our own internal responses
to their account.
That is kind of a mouthful. Brian and Chad break the "Maybe
Capacity" down to a level that every coach can use.
Here are some highlights:
- Get comfortable with not knowing
- Ask questions that are wide open at the beginning
- Create a "frame" for the client to design actions
- Let the Client assign the meaning and action to the issue (and
yet keep them in a maybe capacity)
