Usain Bolt and Coach.Share the Power of Coaching

 Share the Power of Coaching – comes from the Free Guide – ‘Are You Annoyed by How Little Line Managers Support the Skills Training of Their Teams?’

What does it mean to share the power of coaching? Many Line Managers have never received training in coaching. Of course, it’s likely that they’ll have heard of it, and some may even think they’ve done it. However, the chances are that they’ll be achieving, at best, only satisfactory results.

You can achieve great results with just a little knowledge and practice. In this post, we share effective questions that you can use with the GROW model. By sharing the principles of the GROW model with Line Managers, along with some simple yet effective suggested questions, they’ll soon be achieving fantastic results.

In summary, the GROW model is the most widely used model for coaching. The acronym stands for:

  • ‘G’ of GROW is for ‘Goal’  – What do you want to achieve?
  • ‘R’ of GROW is for ‘Reality’  – Where are you now?
  •  ‘O’ of GROW is for ‘Options’  – How can you achieve your goal?
  •  ‘W’ of GROW is for ‘Will’  – What is stopping you from achieving your goal?
