In the Enlighten section of Clueless, the authors review different methods of helping your clients become more aware of their signature strengths, values, personality and development opportunities. They provide a detailed review of feedback methods including 360-degree feedback in order to maximize self-insight and awareness.

This section includes discussions of motivational interviewing techniques, behavioral change models, and skill building to facilitate clients’ readiness to want to implement their goals in a manner that can be measured and evaluated.
In the Enable section the authors introduce techniques and skills for clients to track and monitor progress on the implementation of their goals, build relapse prevention plans, and cultivate factors that support sustained change with colleagues, family members, partners and friends.
