A Coaching Model created by Darlene Schindel
(Health and Wellness Coaching, CANADA)
Coaching is a powerful conversation to enable change. Coaching Models support the client, the coach and the coaching process to create this change with awareness.
This quote from the ICA support document on Coaching Models clearly sets out the value for a coach to have a coaching model.
It is not surprising that there are millions of possibilities of models for coaches to choose from. The key is that the model a coach uses must align with their own values, beliefs and style as well as niche, to be truly valuable in the coaching process.
In my work as a Transformational leadership coach, I wanted to capture the power of transformation in my coaching model.
You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. Buckminster Fuller
The act of standing before a mirror is powerful in beginning the journey of personal awareness. Often, what you see is connected to the thoughts and beliefs you hold about yourself. Our journey together as coach and coachee will take us to looking beyond the exterior, to discovering what lies beneath.
As you stand, gazing at that reflection coming back at you from the mirror, do you know WHY you are here? Understanding your WHY, knowing that it exists deep within you right now, will lead to knowing how and what really matters to you.
Leaders understand that leadership comes from the inside out. Effective leaders have a strong sense of their purpose, their essence. It encompasses their values, beliefs and courage. Learning to lead from your essence becomes a courageous discovery process. When you lead from what you care about, trust is built. Caring is a thriving skill. It may take some thoughtful soul searching and long hard looks deep into the mirror to uncover reality.
Mind, Body and Spirit work together to manifest our abundance. By living from within, your desires are fulfilled.
We will explore your present awareness and what your intentions are.
Living in alignment with the mind, body and spirit is powerful and fulfilling Envision what you would like to have happen in your life.
Our work together will take us on a path as depicted above, from beginning by ‘looking in the mirror’, discovering where you currently are, through the coaching process of powerful questioning that will allow you to uncover from within yourself your true essence of who you are, and lead into the possibilities of where it is you want to be.
