This is one of my favourite questions for a new coaching client. It gives rise to all kinds of emotions, often hurt, anger and frustration, so it's a great time to explore what's behind these emotions and what values are not being honoured. Once you have explored the values, you can follow-up with questions like:
What's the impact of that on you?
How are you going to honour this values now?
What boundaries need to be in place to make this happen?
When to use
The best time to use is at the beginning of a coaching engagement
When exploring the client's values and how much they are being honoured
Also when you are exploring boundaries of the client with others
