In this series, I'll be sharing what I consider to be the six foundational elements of coaching. And in this post, I'll share the first one -- uncovering a crystal clear and inspired vision.
When you add these six elements to your coaching, you'll build a solid foundation to work from.
And when you combine these elements with YOUR secret sauce, you can create your own coaching methodology that stands out in a crowded marketplace.
Plus, add in the Art of Steady Progress (my last blog series) and you've got magic.
Ok. So let's get to the six foundational elements of coaching...
So those are the six foundational elements of coaching. Help your clients with each of these elements and you have an excellent chance of helping your clients make the transformation.
And... love the process.
Let's dive into the first element in this series -- creating a crystal clear and inspired vision.
And break these into two parts -- crystal clear vision AND inspired vision.
Helping your client create a crystal clear vision of what the transformation looks like for them can be one of the most important tools you have in your coaching toolbox.
The vision needs to be as specific as your client is willing and able to go.
The clearer it is and the more they can imagine themselves in that place, the easier it will be.
Take some time on it. See if you can't get them to describe it to you in a way that YOU have a crystal clear picture of what they want.
Uncovering that crystal clear vision leads to having an inspired vision. You want them to feel inspired by their detailed description of their vision.
You want to feel inspired for them.
When they see themselves there, not only do you want them to think it's doable, but worth the effort.
Transforming permanently can sometimes take a long time. And there are bumps and setbacks and doubts that come with the journey.
Having that clear and inspired vision in place will help you and your client move past those rough spots. And keep moving forward.
In the next blog article, we'll talk about how to set up an action plan that feels doable and fun to our clients. So they'll take the action needed to get to that clear and inspired vision.
With love & joy,
