Here are a few ways of wording it:
- Are you open for some reflection?
- Would you like some advice on this?
- Can I share with you how this makes me feel?
- Are you open for some coaching?
- Do you give me permission to coach you?
- Would you like me to coach you through that experience?
- Are you open for some feed back?
- Are you open for some challenging feed back?
- Can I challenge you on what you just said?
- Are you open for me to share my truth on that?
- What do you need the most right now?
- How can I best help you through this experience?
The key is to make it as specific as possible so that they know exactly what they are saying “yes” or “no” to.
