COACHd – 4 Dec 2021

Over the past few weeks, I have been thinking about what 2021 could look like and from that deduce the objectives for my business and personal life. It hasn’t been easy with uncertainty, time constraints, and balancing with my values. Next week, I take this forward to goals – which will make the outcomes more targetted and smarter.

Choice : Evoking AwarenessI also received an email from a friend of mine, Garry Schleifer. Garry publishes a quality quarterly coaching magazine called ‘CHOICE’. The current edition explores awareness. If you follow the link above – I share a 10% off code that you can use when you subscribe.

In the last co-coaching, we explored 2 models. The first model was SPACE, and the second was WAVES. Both of these are acronyms as below.

S – Social P – Physical A – Actions C – Cognition E – Emotions

SPACE can be used to help a client understand something that is happening to them, such as managing anxiety management. More info here

W – Wait and Consider A – Assemble your resources V – Voyage with determination E – Experience the peaks and troughs S – Strengthen to surf again

WAVES can be used in change management and could be linked to other systems such as the Kotters 8 step process.

What models are you currently using?

Would you be willing to share?

If so, drop into this page and let us have the info. We will do the rest, publishing it on The Coach Zone as well as social channels – with full recognition of course

Your Development

Hot on the heels of the experienced coach cohort, early-stage coaching development and supervision cohort will start in Q1 2021. This is aimed at an early stage coach (think 0-150 hours), perhaps wrestling with coaching hours, setting up a business, accreditation questions as well as having strong supervision need to ensure good coaching practice. You will work with a small group of other friendly coaches over a 12 month period helping to build your practice.
