Coaching is the art and practice of guiding a person or a group from where they are, towards the greater competence and fulfillment they desire. – Gray Collins
Coaching is a lifetime process that enables the client to move from current status to a better status chosen by the client.
I have chosen the Train to be my coaching model as a metaphor for the coaching journey and experience. The journey will take you from your existing starting point to your destination determined by you, where you will explore various ways to express yourself deeply and thoroughly through the journey.
The Train coaching model idea captures the essential characteristics of coaching with a special highlight and focus on Self Help, where you will identify and work on your Self Awareness, Self Development and Self Management needed to achieve your set targets or objectives. You will takeaway refreshments (The 7 habits for highly effective people) by Stephen Covey during our exciting journey.
I am here to create a confidential and safe ambiance so that you can sit back and embark on your exploratory journey. Let me brief you on the journey we will take together. The Train passes by several stations in the coaching journey, which are:
- Self-discovery station
- Goals Setting station
- Action plan station
- Celebration station
