Client - "I gained 7 pounds, I don't know what is going on!?!" Coach - "It looks like you aren't sticking to the nutritional guidelines we discussed last consult, tell me more about that." Client - "I snack here and there and don't put it in. I'll try to keep a better track starting today. The holidays have been hard with traveling and stuff. Even so, I thought that I would be losing weight!" Coach - "What are your thoughts about sticking to the plan more accurately and meeting next week to review progress" Client - "Sounds like a plan!" As a coach it is easy to get caught up in the emotional rollercoaster ride when you are advising behavioral modifications. Separating the subjective and objective is imperative to create results with clients and keep them on track!
