Giving and receiving advice can be tricky. As Jeanne shares, sometimes the act of giving advice can be a pattern we get stuck in without noticing if the other person is open to receiving. Advice comes in many ways, with friends, employees, partners and family. Sometimes advice can be referred to as “coaching” especially when someone is wanting to position what they want to share differently. Positioning advice as coaching can be dangerous, especially if you don’t have the best interest of the receiver in mind. Meaning, if you are sharing something to make you feel more comfortable and it isn’t about the individuals personal development and growth, you are doing more harm then good.
The key to giving great advice and/or coaching is the other person being in a place to receive it. There has to be mutual respect between each other and on the topic at hand otherwise it can come across as “SHOULDING” on someone. Whether it be a friend, family, team member or client; remember it is their journey; let them come to you; or simply ask if they are open to coaching from you.
