Discussion & Reflection Questions

  1. Tell us a little about who you are and why you became a coach. 
  2. What is the difference between therapy, consulting, mentoring, coaching — all of those terms that seem to be in the same category, yet if we put them on a Venn diagram, they would not totally overlap?
  3. What are some of the pain points you’ve experienced working as a coach?
  4. Would a coach be considered a partner who works alongside you? How would you define that relationship?
  5. What has been one of your biggest challenges being a coach? 
  6. What are some of the greatest joys or rewards of coaching?
  7. What words of wisdom or advice do you have for someone, SLP or otherwise, thinking about looking for a coach?

Quote of the Conversation

“Do the best you can because if you’re graduating from an accredited program, you’ve got the tools you need. It’s just a case of learning how to listen to others and apply them in the best possible way.”It could be the thing you want most in the world, and your body thinks it’s a big old, scary bear. And that’s about being human. The things that are most meaningful to us are the scariest to us because, wow, what a risk. So, we often self-sabotage before we can even risk it. And so, I do believe in getting back in touch with who you are, your values, your strengths, and then doing the work to backwards plan from those goals.“Do the best you can because if you’re graduating from an accredited program, you’ve got the tools you need. It’s just a case of learning how to listen to others and apply them in the best possible way.”
