GROW Coaching Cards


These coaching cards provide an easily accessible way of using the GROW coaching model as a framework to get results.



Get Better Results With GROW Coaching Cards

GROW Coaching Cards are for anyone that wants to find solutions, improve performance and get better results – theirs or their teams. These are also ideal for managers or for every day.

Project Oxygen, by google, analysed thousands of people performance data such as appraisals and 1-2-1’s. Their conclusion was that the skill that managers are worst at is Coaching. But also, the skill that managers need to be best at is Coaching. These cards give immediate access to the skills and power of coaching to help you to improve the performance of your people and yourself.

Who Are the GROW Coaching Cards For?

People managers & leaders, beginner coaches at work, even qualified coaches, or for those that simply want to become the best version of themselves. These Coaching Cards provide an immediate and easy way to use the GROW coaching model and get direct results and forward momentum.

You do not have to be a qualified coach/trainer to use them.

How to Use these GROW 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.

These cards are a fantastic tool when having a coaching conversation. I found them especially beneficial as a learning tool for introductory coaching workshops. They support the learner in knowing what questions to ask and understanding the benefits of the GROW model.’ – Katie Battersby, L&D Manager at Space NK.

I’m a self-employed freelance PR person and journalist, with a background in grocery and FMCG. I’ve known Darren for a number of years. He kindly sent me a pack of MBM G.R.O.W. Coaching Cards in return for sharing a post about them on LinkedIn.  I love these cards! They guide you to set up a thought process which you can use in your own space and time to help you focus on aspects of a problem, think it through at your own pace and come back to it again with a fresh mind.  I plan to use the cards to think through various challenges including how to develop my business and solving clients’ problems. They will also help me work on my concentration and my wellbeing and calmness.’  – Charles Smith, Freelance PR and Journalist.
