Specifically, and with the help of examples, we learn: Differences Between Counselling & Coaching Differences Between Mentoring & Coaching Differences Between Consulting & Coaching We then finish off this module by recapping with a brief summary of the differences. The Key Responsibilities of a coach We look at the primary role of a coach and the responsibility this brings. Included in this module, are: Facilitative Role Highlighting Choices Encouraging Honesty Commitment To Success Focus On The Client Challenging Confidentiality Listening Skills In this module we look at the five aspects associated with listening. We learn that there are only two aspects that we should be concerned with regards to the coaching setting. We learn that empathetic listening is a vital skill that teaches us to listen without judgement, and to be an effective communicator, it is essential to have empathy, trust, understanding and sympathy. We cover the importance of asking open ended questions, as well as reflection and finally we look at the four way process method. Questioning What, Why, When, How, Where, Who. We cover the percentage of balance between coach and client is 70% listening and 30% questioning. We learn how different questions provoke different responses. The style of questions we look at include: Compounding Questions Leading Questions Tag Questions Reflective Questions Challenging Questions Reframing Questions Focusing Questions Closed Questions Open Questions Expanding Questions Embedded Questions Comparison Questions Curious Questions We also include some questions to ask when you think clients may want to do something new, but they are unsure of what that something is. T-GROW Coaching Model This is a proven coaching model which has a clear structure and ensures that the most crucial areas of achieving a goal are thought through and carefully considered. T-GROW, stands for: Topic Grow Reality Obstacles / Options Way Forward We learn the most effective questions to use with this particular model, in order to get the most from yourself and your clients, and ensuring that you achieve all goals that are set. SMART Coaching Model This is another favoured coaching model. It is great for being specific when setting goals ensuring that they are realistic and measurable. The SMART goal setting method is a five stage process, although it is not a rigid process. It is a checklist that ensures you include the five steps surrounding your goals. SMART stands for: Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic Timed As part of an exercise, we use the SMART coaching model, in a real life example, of someone who would like to achieve the goal of wanting to earn more money. Wheel Of Life The wheel of life is one of the most important tools in the coaching toolkit. It is perfect for beginning the process of identifying goals and areas the client wishes to focus on. It is simplistic but yet powerful. It provides the client with an instant visual of what it is they want. A client often knows they want something to change, but don’t know where to start, so the wheel of life is a great place to begin. Each segment of the wheel represent an area of life and focus, such as: Friends & Social Contacts Health Money & Finance Personal Development Fun & Recreation Work & Career Relationships & Romance Family Albert Mehrabian Model This is communication model, which works on the principle that communication is more than just words. In fact we learn the words you say are just 7% of the message. Pitch, volume and pace make up 38%, and body language accounts for a huge 55%. This communication model is a great asset for any coach to learn, and for those people wishing to become more effective communicators. Matching and Mirroring Mirroring and matching can help build rapport between two people. Rapport is connecting with another person and sharing a sense of ease, a trust, a familiarity with each other, or more commonly to click with. Good rapport helps with communication and interaction between coach and client. Rapport happens naturally or it can be built. One key way to help build rapport, is to physically match and mirror the other person. Clean Language: Its Use In Coaching Clean language is a communications methodology, developed by David J Grove, a counselling psychologist, during the 1980’s and 1990’s. Clean language encourages a sense of clarity in communication between people. It offers helpful techniques for people that work closely with other people, such as in coaching. We cover the principles of clean language and learn the twelve basic questions that accompany the clean language approach. Within these questions, there are certain styles, including: Developing Questions Sequence and Source Questions Intention Questions Passive Aggressive Assertive Model of Communication We can identify passive, aggressive and assertive behaviour, by observing the way communication is conveyed. This module includes an exercise for you to identify sentences, that are either, passive, aggressive or assertive. How Did You Get on? In this module, we look at the answers to the passive, aggressive or assertive, exercise. It is a great opportunity to explore your awareness of this style of communication. How Assertive Are You? This is a great exercise to discover just how assertive you are. You get the opportunity to score yourself and see where you fall on the scale of being assertive. Feedback In this module we learn what feedback is, and why it is so important. As a coach, giving feedback will expand your clients unknown potential and reduce their blind spots. In fact, effective feedback can improve performance by 39%. We learn how and why we should own our feedback in order to be constructive, without being critical. We finish this module by learning the feedback styles of the 2:2 rule, and the feedback sandwich. Administration In this module we are introduced to a number of documents that will help you in practising as a life coach. This is a particularly important section for those people who are interested in training as a life coach and have plans to set up their own life coaching practice. This section includes information on The Data Protection Act, as well as coaching ethics and standards. We've also included a coaching client contract that you can personalise by adding your own logo or company details. Conclusion In this final lecture we’ll be summarising what we’ve learned throughout the course. This will help us to make sure, we’ve fully understood the learning objective and successfully achieved it.
