Help Your Clients Achieve Their Goals with Motivational Interviewing
You are invested in your client's success and well-being. You know what they need to do and you know how they can do it.
Why is this individual still stuck? More importantly, how can you help?
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based approach for connecting with a person, exploring the possibility of change, and enhancing an individual's motivation to define and achieve their own version of "even better yet."
This person-centered style of communicating addresses ambivalence about a specific behavior change. It is appropriate for use in many settings in which the well-being of the client, patient, or supervisee is prioritized.
Dr. Elizabeth Jenkins is a clinical psychologist and co-author of two books:

In Motivational Interviewing for Leadership: MI-Lead, readers are provided an understanding for how to effectively guide individuals toward change
In MI-Lead: A Leader’s Guide for Difficult Conversations, readers learn strategies for providing feedback and addressing problematic behavior while maintaining the heart of a servant leader through partnership, acceptance, compassion, and evocation.
II. MI and Parenting
Have you ever asked your child to do something important, but after sharing your brilliant, clear reasoning, you realized that your child didn’t listen to a word of it? Most of us want a positive relationship with our kids AND we want them to tune in so they can be responsible, safe, and independent. We really can have both.
Happy parents, happy children. You don't have to choose.
