UNDERSTANDING COACHING MODELS

&

Their Use in Coaching

Pooja Lohana is an Online Business Coach + Freelance Writer & Editor. She helps entrepreneurs shine with their blog and copy, and simplifies online marketing so they can make more sales and live the Un-9-5 life. Reach her at www.ghostwriterpooja.com.

As a coach, you’ve probably heard of and utilised several coaching models.

multiple models depending on the goals and outcome, as well as the internal state of the client.

A coaching model helps coaches understand and intervene things from a systems perspective. It brings the much-needed structure to the conversation you have with a client.

Rather than being rigid with a model, coaches must adopt a more flexible approach.

Unless the coach is conscious about it, coaching conversations can be all over the place. The client can get stuck in the “story mode” rather than focusing on the desired outcome. Although exploration of the current reality has a place in coaching, it is the coach’s job to bring their focus from what’s broken to what’s desired. A coaching model determines what will happen during a coaching conversation as well as what happens during the whole coaching journey between the coach and the client (over months or even years). The beauty of coaching models is that models are not prescriptive or rigid – coaches can use

Ideally, coaches should have several models handy and use the one that most effectively serves the client at that point of time. That said, if you prefer one model over others, it’s good to go deeper, learn more about it and become a “pro” at practising and utilising the specific model during coaching sessions. Eventually, coaches can use one, integrate several different models or develop an entirely new one.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING MODELS, COACHING TOOLS AND COACHING TECHNIQUES We already know that a model represents a system with a set process.

page 12


It’s easy to confuse a model with tools and techniques. A coaching tool is what you use inside a coaching conversation and model. Examples could be checklists, questionnaires, workbooks, assessments, questions, listening etc.

GROW

COACHING MODELS

GROW is one of the most popular models. G: GOALS

A technique is a skill or ability that you can utilise to use the tool better. For example, questioning is a tool but Kaizen questions is a technique. Listening is a skill whereas active listening is a coaching technique. Combining the above two, a model is a collection of skills, experiences, expertise, tools and techniques that coach is capable of bringing to the session.

COACHING MODELS & E.S.I.P According to Meta Dynamics™, also called the “Owner’s manual for the brain”, there are four dimensions of human behaviour: E.S.I.P, which stands for Environment, Structure, Implementation and People.

E: The outcome we want to achieve. S:

What we need to achieve the outcome in terms of systems, and repetitive behaviours.

I: The actions we need to take to achieve the outcome.

P: Who needs to be involved and how. Coaching models sit nicely in the “S” (Structure) of E.S.I.P. It helps determine what you need to achieve the outcome. Structure refers back to designing a strategy and plan, templates and checklists, KPIs and benchmarks.

R: REALITY O: OPTIONS W: WAY FORWARD It’s pretty straightforward – Goals stand for the client’s goal for the session. Therefore it is a great idea to set up the session and have them commit on an agenda and outcome for the session. Once you do that, both you and the client are on the same page and on track. Reality stands for the current situation for the client. It also touches on how far the client has to go in terms of progress, what’s stopping them and what they’ve already tried. The client can easily slip in the “story-mode”, so it’s our job as their coaches to bring the awareness around what really matters – such as their values, priorities and beliefs. Options is where we brainstorm for solutions, give them support or that push they need to drive the outcome. Way forward is where we get the client to commit to some form of action, to stop doing something or even do nothing in some cases. Nothing changes until we change something. A good practice is to make sure the client is 100% on board and committed with the steps forward.

page 13


To chart your client’s course is to help them set up the way forward. What they need to do in order to achieve their goals.

SUCCESS

Coaches also create and highlight specific opportunities that exist to propel the client forward.

SUCCESS stands for: S: SESSION PLANNING

Once the opportunities are brought to focus, it’s time to evaluate the actions the client has chosen to do. Is there anything that could potentially hold them back? What strengths and skills can they utilise best for their success?

U: UPLIFTING EXPERIENCES C: CHARTING YOUR COURSE C: CREATING OPPORTUNITIES

It’s important that your clients feel the synergy between their set goals and how they feel about achieving those goals. If there’s no synergy, the client may end up “saying” yes to the goals but not really committing to them.

E: EVALUATING S: SYNERGY S: SUMMARY

Session planning is essentially getting your clients to focus on what to focus on, what challenges they face and what goals they want to achieve. It’s carried out before the session starts to avoid what otherwise can turn into a disorganised session. Clients get a certain “high” from building on their past success. It’s vital for your client’s success to think and recall positive moments so they can capitalise on them.

Summary is a recap of the session. What did the client get out of the process? This is when you help them anchor their thoughts and feelings to the positive experience they had during the conversation, otherwise they will forget all about it the moment they leave the session.

CONCLUSION To serve your clients better, keep a few coaching models handy that you can use to move the client from where they are now to where they want to be. You’re always using one even if you don’t realise, so why not use them to the fullest potential?

In India, tea or chai as we call it in Hindi, is a big deal in people’s lives. Those who need it just need it. Not that they will cease to survive, but it’s a craving they choose to experience 2-3 times a day.

“When you are trying to change a HABIT, You remove the H, and A BIT is still there. You remove the A and a BIT is still there.

In short, it’s a habit. It’s equally common to observe a contrast every now and then, in the sense that some people want to be more aware and take better control of their desires of tea. In this context, I once heard a spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravishankar say this about the process of changing a habit: page 16

You remove the B, and IT is still there. And even if you manage to remove the I, the T(ea) is still there!”


These were just a few catchy lines for me, until now, when I have been able to put it in real

And that’s when you need to pause and ask yourself in just one word: WHY?

perspective. There are a couple of habits that I want to change, and so I designed a transition strategy to reach from here to there. How do I plan to put it into action? Great question! I had the same question too, until one day when I got introduced to this mindchanging, life-changing concept called “Liminal Space”. The moment I heard of it and understood its essence, I decided this is going to be the basis of my next writing venture. And it’s amazing to realise that as I write with absolute spontaneity,

Why did I set out on this journey, on this path in the first place? Is it worth it to keep going just a few more miles? How much better will it make me feel by tomorrow when I know I have covered some more distance, which means I’ve gotten closer to my destination? Staying connected with your purpose at all times is the greatest source of passionate motivation. And asking the right questions with empowering language will take you places, much quicker than you thought was possible. No doubt, home is where your familiar territory is. That’s where safety is. But not much has been achieved in the world by staying safe.

you really need to have very little of theoretical content. I just began with two words and my mind put together all my learnings, knowledge and experiences into perspective to make it complete.

WHAT IS LIMINAL SPACE? The word “liminal” comes from the Latin word

limens, meaning “threshold.” In simpler terms, it is the distance between an OLD habit and a NEW habit that you have to travel in the process of replacing the old with the new one. When you begin the journey of transition, you really only know your origin and destination. But you don’t know the distance that separates the two. It’s a GPS with some in-built adventure. It will keep showing you the way so long as you choose to stay on the track. But should your need for certainty takeover your need for variety and adventure, you might find yourself driving

Personal development guru Jack Canfield says, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” And I believe that fear is a big component of the liminal space. It keeps showing up in the form of roadblocks, breakdowns and distractions on the way. The path keeps getting challenging. You might run out of fuel or need a snack! Pull over. Stop over if need be. Refuel and recharge. But keep hanging on. You never know, your destination might be just round the corner! And that’s where the key lies — on the pathway forward. I leave you with this food for thought: When you’re ready to bring in the change (which you will never be if you keep waiting, so believe that you ARE indeed ready NOW!), you’ll notice the path is set, the destination is clear, but the distance is not. But know what? That’s where the FUN begins!

HOW THE ICG WAS BORN

A Brief Comparison with Industry-Recognising Bodies

International Coach Guild started in 2013 as a way to provide the highest standards of training and recognition for coaching students, and for coaching schools. A group of 143 passionate coaches founded ICG. Since then, it has attracted hundreds of members, primarily within Australia. At the ICG, we recognise that coaches should have a choice in their coach training, and how that training is recognised. Until 2013, the ICF was the only real choice coaches had. An alternative was obviously needed, the one which provided significant points of difference, contrast and choice for coaching students. The standard requirement for recognition as a credentialed coach was one simple assessment.

An additional written assessment is required for coaches applying for recognition via the ICG’s Portfolio Pathway to demonstrate their coaching knowledge and skills. In comparison to ICG, other coaching bodies have only a maximum of three assessments, some of which are multiple choice questions and less formal. There was a time when a school had no formal requirement to train a coach in business, marketing and client conversion strategies. The focus was solely on coaching skills. The rigorous training and assessment process has been an effective preparation for ICG members to gain more paid clients, build their coaching practice and make use of effective marketing rather than just building their coaching skills. See (right) for the ICG Infographic.

The ICG, on the other hand, requires you to complete a minimum of three rigorous assessments in order to be recognised as a coach. The three assessments are:

3 STEPS TO CONTROL YOUR VOICE

&

Positively Influence Others

Maria is a student at The Coaching Institute and a passionate coach to singers and speakers. She has been helping her clients for the past 20 years to have the best-sounding voice offering tailored exercises for individual voice types. Maria is also a singing teacher and dedicates her time to helping her clients develop their mindset, and apply the right techniques to achieve their singing goals. Find out more at www.mariapellicano.com

YOUR VOICE SAYS A LOT ABOUT YOU 38% of our communication comes across through our tone, inflection and speed at which we speak. 58% is from the way we carry our bodies. That means a total of 93% is non-verbal communication. Only 7% of the communication comes from real words spoken.

To bring about a desired result, such as influence someone positively, it is important to use the words with right vocal tone and body language. When you speak, people feel your words more than they hear them. They feel your emotion and character traits and gauge you on the basis of that feeling. Your voice is you and you are your voice — it cannot be hidden or separated. If they believe your communication is authentic, they naturally want to connect with you.

page 22


3 TIPS TO CONTROL YOUR VOICE VOCAL TIP #1: Use your voice muscles to create the right tone You’ve probably heard this before, “It’s not just what you say, it is how you say it”. Here are some ways to make sure your audience is hearing what you want them to. When your larynx is lower you have a deeper sound that makes your message stronger and more serious. When you slightly raise your larynx, you will create a brighter sound that makes your sound softer and friendlier. Smiling when you speak will help you sound brighter and excitable whereas having a serious look will deepen your voice and bring more authority in your message. Remember, a wrong vocal tone can create a wrong message, and in turn lead to misunderstandings. Your message may need to be more assertive or more excitable depending on what you want to communicate. Your emotions affect your voice. I remember someone once told me: “The amount we get paid is by the degree we can emotionally evoke passion in others.” Perhaps you are sending out one message verbally and a different one non-verbally. The way you talk can have a particularly profound effect on how others interpret what it is that you are saying. Everyone loves the feeling of connection that comes through words that carry authenticity. Your words have the power to create connection when they are supported with the right tone that comes from an authentic heart and when you are passionate about the message.

VOCAL TIP#2: Breathe Have you ever felt you were misunderstood by others? It may be because you hold your breath by locking up your stomach muscles when you speak. Breathe in more air deeper into your belly and expand the ribs. Be mindful of breathing too high in your chest and running out of breath when you are speaking. Speaking with more air will make your voice sound warmer, friendlier and approachable. VOCAL TIP#3: Loosen Your Jaw and Tongue When you relax your jaw and tongue, you sound freer and you vocal tone flows better. This is very inviting especially when it comes to relationships. When you speak, drop your jaw and make your tongue soft by resting the tip of it lightly behind your bottom teeth. If you close your mouth too much, you’ll come across as restricted and holding yourself back. We have a tendency to half-heartedly listen to most people we meet. We’re more likely to pay attention to a friendly voice than to one that is dull, monotone, or frustrated and angry. Keep your voice confident and clear because this attracts your listeners to listen and engage with you. They can trust you and rely on your words. That’s when you feel you have been heard and you are making a difference by creating the influence you want to have.  

page 23


LAUNCH YOUR PUBLIC SPEAKING CAREER It’s said that the only way to keep learning is by teaching. As coaches, public speaking is a great opportunity for you to market your services as well as practise your skills on stage in front of your ideal clients. It offers you a chance to learn more about your avatar by being in the room; generate new leads and market your products to the right audience. In fact, coaching and speaking are tightly tied together, with speaking being one of the best avenues to make sales. At ICG, we’re always looking for high-quality partner organisations and individuals who are “doing the do” and are in alignment with our values. We’d like to introduce Cydney O’Sullivan and Carrie Myton from Motivational Speakers International, our newest ICG partners.

Staying true to our promise of setting standards for coaching excellence, we’ve brought them onboard so as to serve you better on your coaching journey. Cydney and Carrie have designed a proven Marketing Machine designed to help you attract profitable speaking opportunities. It’s called the Market Leader Showcase. They launched it earlier this year and have been getting some stellar results for their clients. This can be a perfect vehicle to take your public profile and your coaching business to the next level and launch your public speaking career.
