Coaching is a lot more than a game of questions and answers. Ability to listen attentively and ask the right questions is necessary for any good coaching relationship though – a good coach knows how to make chance for someone to look at his/her situation differently. Apart from that, there are a lot of techniques and tools to build insight in oneself, explain one’s goals, create new remedies and/or overcome outer and inner obstacles.
These are a few techniques Your Coach utilizes regularly to assist its customers to more effectiveness and autonomy:
Your Coach usually utilizes the GROW coaching model to arrange its sessions. The GROW coaching model is a certified model which leads to a clear end result in 4 stages. It is a ‘hands on’ way of advancing: from reflection to insight into one’s reality, to defining a goal, finding out choices and maximizing motivation to create change.
The model of neurological levels was explained by a biologist, anthropologist and philosopher from Britain who is known as Gregory Bateson. His model the six levels individuals are usually operating upon and living by, unconsciously and consciously. All levels have an effect on other levels, building a self-reinforcing network of environment, skills, behavior, convictions, and values, mission in life and sense of identity. Your Coach utilizes the content of these levels to build insight into one’s life situations and relationships. For instance, this model defines and accepts the observation that unwanted behavior doesn’t go away easily by moving into another environment.
SMART goals bring accountability and structure into goals. Instead of just bringing vague resolutions, SMART goals build provable trajectories towards a particular goal, with an estimation of feasability and clear milestones. All goals, either it is an intermediary step in a bigger plan or a goal in itself, can be changed SMART and enhance its probabilities of being reality.
Language is an irregular model that shows our subjective experience (one which is, in itself, a filter of the infinite elements that makes reality). Which means that through diverse linguistic models, the exact experience can be lived and encoded. The meta model is a pack of semantic structures that enables us identify 3 processes: generalizations, omissions and distortions. It is also a group of questions which enable you to finish and correct these omissions, distortions and generalizations.
We do not respond to reality, but we respond to our model of the world – our map of the nation. This MOW (model of the world) is built through filters that are used to arrange the infinite information they have. It is more like a radio tuner: if we were to get all stations at once (all auditive, visual, kinesthetic, gustatory stimuli and olfactory), it would be a lot to take care of. This is the reason we have filters, and they differ for everybody.
By knowing and mapping these filters, we get insight on the way people function in a specific context. By being attentive to the way we function with regards to thought emotions, processes, behavior and language (the metamodel), we realize our internal programming functions. That enables us to find where things are wrong, and adapt little things that can make changes.
Typologies enable you to build an irregular personality sketch, listing the dominant normal traits of one’s behavior. Typologies don’t mean categories one is stuck into, but as universes of probable character that enables you to compare individuals to one another, gain insight into the dynamics of their relationship, and build more harmonious communication and a sense of understanding. We utilize them for personal coachings and to clear up wars within organizations, where several people are being forcefully put to contact with one another.
Some of the regularly utilized typologies:
Behavioral assessment Your Coach is a qualified user of Thomas International’s Personal Profile Analysis (PPA), based on Marston’s DISC profiles. The Personal Profile Analysis uses stock of a person’s behavioral trait in a work scenerio and enables you to compare their self-image, behavior under pressure and working mask. Behavioral assessment can be utilized for group trainings or individual analyses.
EnneagramThe enneagram is a personality model that explains the unconscious and conscious character, beginning from people’s underlying motivations and fear. It builds 9 rough kinds that are also subdivided into subtypes and a person’s choice for an assertive, self-preserving or social way of being. The model offers insights into one’s relationship with others and one’s behavior. It also builds popularity for very problematic areas and what will enable an individual to grow.
