Pairs coaching puts the spotlight on each other. You start to see the cross-over and the differences more clearly but it also highlights when working together on problems can be very useful. It has made me less defensive of my position and beliefs. I am more open, more able to give and receive feedback.
Baz doesn’t allow you to avoid difficult topics but he does it in a non-confrontational and supportive way. Pairs coaching has been enlightening.
