Gagne’s 9 Events of Instruction » Center for Instructional Technology & Training » University of Florida | Me Learning | Scoop.it

Spheres of Control

Spheres of Control | Me Learning | Scoop.it
This concept--the Spheres of Control--posits that the things we're worried about or that we complain about fall into three domains: things we have control over, things we can influence, and things that are outside of our control and influence. When I hear a coachee talking about something that he is unhappy about, I listen through this framework and try to identify where this issue would fall.
Ganthi Viswanathan's insight:
