How to coach?

Time needed: 1 hour.

How can I coach somebody?

  1. The participant (coachee) has to be willing to be coached

    Why are we saying that? Because sometimes people wish somebody would be coached. This doesn’t work. Coaching is not about taking advising and then deciding what do about them, it is an active process and requires a lot of efforts from the participant

  2. The participant decides before the meeting what the topic will be

    Each session of 1-2 hour can only have 1 topic and will stays for at least 3 months

  3. The participant decides before the meeting what the goal of the coaching relationship is

    Each session of 1-2 hour can only have 1 goal. It can however change session-by-session

  4. The coach will lead the participant into identifying what the reality is

    This covers the reason something doesn’t work, what has been attempted, what the results are/where.

  5. The coach will lead the participant into identifying options

    1. A simple list of option
    2. Deep-dive into the 3 most likely

  6. The coach will lead the participant into identifying a list of action items

    This is the outcome of the coaching session! Each action will have a deadline attached to it

  7. A new meeting will be scheduled

    The participant will be asked to work on the action item(s) and report about them at the next session
