MindSonar: The Key to Unlocking Effective Coaching Communication

Understand your client’s communication style to get better and quicker results.

As a coach, it is important to understand our client’s thought patterns and language preferences to better facilitate communication.

This is where a MindSonar profile helps us understand our clients’ cognitive styles and communication preferences.

Understand our communication style and thinking.

For us to be successful coaches, we must be self-aware of our own cognitive style and communication preferences. 

Our coaching session may be affected unintentionally by our preconceptions and preferences if we are unaware of them, which could impede the client’s progress. 

Because of this, we need to have a firm grasp of our own cognitive and communication quirks so that we can make the appropriate modifications to make the session relevant to the client’s needs.

As MindSonar is context driven, a profile specific to when we are coaching enables us to gain these insights as a coach.

 Are you of your communication style and thinking patterns as a coach?

Change our communication style for better, quicker outcomes.

Matching our language and communication style with the preferences of our clients enables us to build rapport quickly and understand their thinking and language patterns so we can ask better questions. 

Additionally, it allows us to challenge their perspectives by introducing disruptive language that may help them think differently or evolve mentally as needed. 

To illustrate, if I have a client who is a high energy, enthusiastic, and brims with positivity, I will initially mirror their communication style. Later, I may use language and questioning techniques to transition them to a more reflective and focused mode, so they avoid overlooking any potential pitfalls.

How do you change your communication style during your coaching sessions?

Change the internal communication style of my client.

Most people have some sort of inner dialogue going on in some form or another.  The language used internally has a powerful impact on an individual’s mindset and affects their behaviour and the outcomes they achieve.

Negative self-talk, ‘glass-half-empty’ and ‘away from’ thinking and language can lead to many issues for our clients around confidence, motivation, and mental health issues.  

Additionally, positive self-talk can help individuals feel more confident in achieving their goals and can help build better relationships.

Using their MindSonar profile to raise awareness of their internal thought and communication processes enables the client to transition from negative to positive self-talk quickly and easily.

Are your clients aware of how their internal communication style may be holding them back?

Changing communication changes the outcomes.

By becoming aware of their internal and external language patterns through their MindSonar profile, clients can identify when they are hindering their progress. 

Through MindSonar, clients can identify language patterns that may be inhibiting them from achieving successful outcomes. 

This newfound awareness allows for the transition into a more positive language which will inevitably spark beneficial thought processes as well as effective action plans leading to success!
