A Coaching Model Created by Cristina Rosu
(Transformational & Transitional Coaching, ROMANIA)
My model is a combined approach of Transformational and Transitional coaching and is based on the idea that: Change equals always the opportunities that come with it.
The way we see change is the way we live change! Our beliefs, either we realize it or not, are the guide of our mind and our habitual thinking is the map of our life.
We go in life where our mind is set up to bring us. What we believe about us, people and events creates our life as it is.
Coaching draws its power from the internal transformation the clients’ experience. Its impact is set to last a life time and it’s one of the biggest tools to growth and moving forward.
The concept of “C for coaching” is one built around the idea of creation and the infinite possibilities that come with it. Every person is born with the great power to create. What we do with this power depends on us. There are infinite numbers of things we can choose to create in our life but there is one that was given to us by life itself and that is: change! Create the right path and change will be a gift!
My model is called: “From gliding to soaring to flying”. It is basically a step by step approach on how to use in our benefit the wind of change that is an immanent part of life. The aim is to first understand change and naturally accept it and go with it. Then we need to become aware and choose the right drafts that can lift us higher and make change always easier – those are our beliefs. The ultimate goal is to own our path from within and create any route we want in life, long after the coaching process was finished.
My model comes with a 5 steps “C” process:
Clarifying values and beliefs – to live happily is necessary to live according to our main system of values and to use the right beliefs to support us
Creating awareness around thoughts and events – having a deep understanding and a broad vision of our life is essential in choosing our path
Challenging the perspective – viewing ourselves and things in our life from different angles is the door to opportunities
Choosing with courage and revealing resources – action is the ingredient to any successful process and the courage to take every step is always rewarded by gaining new resources to move forward
Conquering the opportunities – clarity, awareness, perspectives and actions are gained, reflected upon and interiorized so that they become powerful fueling forces into our next phase in life
What this means is that first we will find out what you really want and really care about so that we will be sure you are going in the right direction. Then we will explore your world as you see it and the thoughts around it and challenge them to truly understand if they are supporting your goals. An answer to a question will follow: are you seeing all the opportunities and possibilities that are there? Since coaching is all about action, and nothing learned is valuable until it is used, we will structure your new vision around action steps that will make you experience change in a happy and uplifting way. This process is a process of discovery and empowerment; it is a change from within – the only path to long lasting happiness.
