In my last article I wrote about self-evaluation and how a coaching conversation can help this process. Today I will take you through a useful self-evaluation technique that you can use and give to your clients. You may have already heard of it, it was made famous by Sir John Whitmore, who was one of the instigators in bringing coaching to the driver training industry. Tri-Coaching Partnership had the pleasure of meeting with him several times during the development of the BTEC Level 4 in Coaching for Driver Development and we were lucky that he chose to attend one of our training modules and offer us guidance when we first started delivering the course.The GROW model is a solution focused coaching conversation and is based on the structure below.
Goal: What do you want to achieve?
Reality: What is the current situation?
Options: What could you do?
Will: What will you do?
Questions that you can use to help generate a conversation:
What are you trying to achieve?
Questions for problem solving
