It takes some intelligence to offer a better, more effective way to get something done. It requires emotional intelligence so that your packaging and delivery lands for the receiver in a way that they can hear it, and put it into action right now. But what do you do if the receiver won’t listen, no matter how you deliver or package it?
More than half your struggle might have nothing to do with you, but with the fact that your listener isn’t open to support and coaching to begin with. It takes a certain degree of self confidence and self esteem to be able to listen to coaching from someone without being offended, threatened, or angry. Without the “Right Attitude,” the Coachee is limited in their learning ability, and it’s likely that you’re going to feel like you’re working way too hard to get something across.
