How to Use these How to Have a Development Conversation Coaching Cards

These Coaching Cards are easy to use. Here are 10 steps:

  • Book a meeting with your coachee (that could be yourself) for 30-60 minutes.
  • At the start of your session explain to your coachee that this is a coaching session:
    • They should bear with you as you learn and get used to coaching with the cards.
    • You will invite them to give you feedback at the end.
    • Ask them to keep an open mind.
    • There might be some bumps and pauses as this is a new approach to personal development or coaching.
  • Start with the whole deck of +80 cards in front of you. Set your instructions cards to one side.
  • Shuffle through and separate your 4 GROW question phases into individual piles.
  • Begin with the 20 ‘Goal’ stage Coaching Cards in your hand.
  • Pick out the most appropriate questions from these first 20 cards. You do not need to ask all 20 questions, and you do not need to ask them in the order you have found them. Your aim is to help the coachee to identify their goal.
  • Start asking and see what comes up.
  • Repeat the above steps for the other 3 stages; Reality, Options, and Way Forward.
  • Finish the coaching session when you have a clear answer in each stage. A Goal. A clear view of the Reality. An Option or options to move from the Reality towards the Goal. And finally, an agreed Way Forward.
  • Your last step is to get some feedback for yourself as the coach.
