A Coaching Model created by Cindy Chen
(Corporate/Executive/Career Coaching, CANADA)
What is the most rigorous law of our being? GROWTH. No smallest atom of our moral, or physical structure can stand still… It grows, and it must grow; nothing can prevent it. Mark Twain
Notes (how it is used)
- While the GROWTH coaching model is designed for corporate and executive coaching, it can be used widely. It offers en effective framework supporting both the coach and the client/coachee to see the wood for the trees and keep coaching conversations on track.
- The simple questions in it provide examples for coaches to generate their powerful questions for their specific situations.
- Note that coaching conversations can begin at any point and journey through any direction. The model is like a compass for orientation rather than a rigid sequence of steps to be followed.
- PDCA (plan–do–check–adjust) cycle is an iterative management method commonly used in business for continuous improvement. Corporate coaches, coach-like leaders and others who are familiar with it may refer to it to guide through their coaching conversation stages.
Change is inevitable, Growth is intentional. What is more important is not where we stand, but in what direction we are moving…
