Coaching Using the GROW model
GGoal This is the end point, where the client wants to be. The goal has to be defined in such a way that it is very clear to the client when they have achieved it. RReality The Current Reality is where the client is now. What are the issues, the challenges, how far are they away from their goal? O Obstacles There will be Obstacles stopping the client getting from where they are now to where they want to go. If there were no Obstacles the client would already have reached their goal. Options Once Obstacles have been identified, the client needs to find ways of dealing with them if they are to make progress. These are the Options. WWay Forward The Options then need to be converted into action steps which will take the client to their goal. These are the Way Forward.
The Coaching Conversation The two most important skills for a coach are the ability to ask good questions and listen effectively. Don't ask closed questions that call for a yes or no answer, such as "Did that cause a problem?" Instead ask open ones like "What effect did that have?" Be prepared with a list of questions for each stage of the GROW process – see pack for suggestions Use active listening skills and let the student do most of the talking. Remember that silence provides valuable thinking time: you don't always have to fill silence with the next question.
