Coaching Tools 101 - The GROW Model as the ULTIMATE Coaching Tool, Questions and Why it Always Works!

Coaching Tools 101 - The GROW Model as the ULTIMATE Coaching Tool, Questions and Why it Always Works! | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it

There are many, many different coaching models out there but I still haven’t found anything that beats the GROW model for simplicity, effectiveness and results. If you embrace the GROW model – your clients will love you and you’ll never lose track in a coaching session again.

So, you probably use the GROW model (or T-GROW) without even realizing it:

T – Topic (Session Topic)G – Goal (Session Goal)R – Reality (Where they are and what’s going on for them)O – Options (Ideas and brainstorming – what they COULD do to move forwards)W – Will Do (Their actions – what they WILL do to move forwards)

In reality it’s probably more like ROTGOW or TROWG or TRORGWOW but these 5 key elements ALWAYS work and here’s why

How To Ask Great Coaching Questions

How To Ask Great Coaching Questions | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it
As a manager your best development tool is yourself as a coach. Coaching is about making people think for themselves instead of being given the answers. It therefore relies on you to ask great coaching questions.

30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers

30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it

If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, “It was all Mr. Jones. He just never gave up on me.”

What students take away from a successful education usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subject. It’s difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is:

Are teachers reaching their students?

 "If you cultivate careful powers of discernment, stop feeling like it’s sinful to have those powers, face into the challenge of figuring out when to speak your mind and when to bite your lip, and calmly hold your cultivated opinions as not easily perturbed, you’ll be able to show disrespect as respectfully as humanly possible."

10 Easy Questions to Get a Talkative Client to the Point! - The Launchpad - The Coaching Tools Company Blog | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it
I'm sure every one of us has had (or has!) a client who likes to tell stories and go into great detail about what happened to whom, when, where, how.

It could be the drama that attracts them. Perhaps they want to distract you (or themselves) from a difficult issue. They could also be a sequential thinker or a ‘detail-oriented’ person. There are plenty of reasons WHY some people just like to talk, but in this post we’re going to look at specific things you can ASK or SAY to get them to the point – fast!

Personalize Learning: Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning

Personalize Learning: Blended Learning is Not the Only Way to Personalize Learning | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it

Blended learning means offering a combination of face-to-face and online learning opportunities to learners. Blending these learning opportunities can contribute to personalizing learning. However, blended learning is not the only approach that personalizes learning. Personalizing learning starts with the learner. This means that learners have a stake in their learning by taking responsibility for their learning. When they own and drive their learning, they are more motivated to want to learn. In a learning environment that starts with the learner, teacher and learner roles change.

Manea Murray's comment, April 3, 2013 5:48 AM
Georgia’s comments are agreeable to my views on measuring success. The article is comparing successful versus non-successful through characteristics and personality of people. Reading the Success Indicator makes a point that a person is able to gauge his or her own success through how they behave and what lifestyle choices they want to make. It is important to understand that only the individuals can measure success for themselves.
ShaLino's comment, April 6, 2013 3:21 AM
I agree with both of Georgia's and Manea's comments about measuring success. Success is very important in life as well as having the characteristics and mentality of a person wanting to go far. Although this article had agreeable points, more discussion needs to be explored I think. Also, success comes from goals set by a person. Until that person is satisfied and fulfilled by their goals then one can maybe say or feel successful. It is true that success is not measured by popularity or how much money you have.
Ishika Nair's curator insight, April 9, 2013 5:46 AM

I think this article is relating with successfaul and non successful by showing the appearances. As shown on the article success is not only be achieved in bussiness or bbby becoming famous. The success indicator merely measures the success within your own lifestyle. This also means people measures success in many different ways and on many different levels when serring goals in life, its important that we indentify what success means to us personally, so that when we succedd we will know it.

7 Coaching Ideas to Push Your Coaching Edge and Get Exciting Results! - The Launchpad - The Coaching Tools Company Blog | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it

The best results from coaching come when WE take risks with our clients, when we PUSH the edges of what we might normally ask or say. Of course our clients must do the work and challenge themselves to grow. But it’s also when WE step out of OUR comfort zones as coaches that magic happens. So, stop playing it safe, try one of these coaching ideas and see your coaching break through to the next level!

The Beauty of Questions

The Beauty of Questions | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it
When used properly, questions have the potential to connect us to the world of another. A heartfelt "How are you?" or "How was your day?" can become the bridge that keeps us in relationship to the lives of those we love. Sometimes, too, questions create a bridge within ourselves, allowing us to hear what's going on at a deeper level. We know when we've encountered a question that has this potential because it stays with us -- maybe for the day, maybe for our whole lives. It taps us on the shoulder to wake us up, or it wiggles its way in more deeply, opening us up to seeing things in a new way.

Tension: How coaches can optimise it

Tension: How coaches can optimise it | Reflective Coaching | Scoop.it
Tension: Continuing their series on challenging coaching Ian Day and John Blakey take a look at how to turn tension into a positive thing.

 

It can be seen that if coaches hold the belief that tension is negative and should be avoided at all cost, they might be selling their coachees short. On the other hand, if we carefully calibrate tension and responsibly adjust levels of tension to suit the individual and their organisational context, then greater levels of performance are attainable. Can we afford to take the liberty of not exploring this possibility fully when times are tough and everyone is required to 'up their game'?
