Weight loss is a sensitive subject. Even though your client has come to you so you can help them lose weight, it can still be a difficult topic to discuss in depth. Here are some tips for discussing weight loss goals and challenges with your clients:
Be Strategic with Questions
In order to best serve your client, you need to get to know more about them. The process of getting acquainted requires asking a great deal of questions. By asking the right questions, in the right way, you can find the information you need without unintentionally causing any distress. Here are some simple tips for asking effective questions:
Take the Time to Listen
While your clients are working with you in order to learn from your expertise, it’s equally important for you to listen to what they have to say. You may have a lot of information you’d like to share with them in a short amount of time, but the time you spend with your client should never feel rushed. By creating an environment where they have an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings, you can build trust with your client. You may also learn important details about your client that will help you develop a better weight loss plan for them.
Recap Your Discussions
As your session draws to a close, use the remaining time to revisit the topics you covered together. Ask your clients what they learned during your discussion, and what they are excited about working on during the time between sessions. Doing this will help your clients remember any key takeaways, and ends things on a positive, motivational note.
As you build trust with your client, and develop a rapport, the conversations will become even easier. Honest, comfortable conversations allow your client to learn new skills they can use in between sessions.
