Coaching is a process that unlocks a person’s potential in order to maximize performance It is helping them to learn rather than instructing them Coaching focuses on future possibilities not past mistakes It is a generic process that can be used at a variety of levels in an organisation (colleagues, pupils, parents)
QTL Quality Through Leadership How does coaching work? The process is non-directive The coachee chooses the agenda The coaching session is goal centred and leads to action Coaching focuses on the present and future Coaching helps people take responsibility for action and is an investment in their growth

COACHING “Coaching is not merely a technique to be wheeled out and rigidly applied in prescribed circumstances. It is a way of managing, a way of treating people, a way of thinking, a way of doing. John Whitmore: Coaching for performance
QTL Quality Through Leadership The coaching process model (GROW) Goal WFO Reality Analysis Options Direction setting Will Do Action planning What do you want? Where are you now? Where do you want to be? How are you going to get there?
QTL Quality Through Leadership How to listen effectively Being there Following the coachee’s agenda Trusting silence Hear what the coachee is saying without projecting your experience on to the story Be patient, attentive and objective Point out the elephants in the room Turn off the conversation in your head
QTL Quality Through Leadership Impatient Listening I see your problem and I know the solution I’m now composing my reply I came with something on my mind I really want to get on with my work What you said reminded me of something I need to do Not that issue again!
QTL Quality Through Leadership AIRTIME In a coaching session a coachee should get about 80 % of the airtime
QTL Quality Through Leadership Reflecting Holding a mirror up to raise the coachee’s awareness of the reality they have just described Using the coachee’s words is very powerful where possible Checking that what you have reflected back is accurate
QTL Quality Through Leadership Clarifying/Summarising Regularly focusing the conversation and reminding coach and coachee where they are. ‘So let me just check I’ve understood what you’ve told me...’ ‘So far you have mentioned 3 goals....’
