A Coaching Model Created by Ilim Guner
(Transformational Life Coaching, TURKEY)
As coaches one of our most significant attribute is asking the right questions. So after I have started my coaching training I developed this habit of questioning myself. I ask myself many questions during the day about my everyday routines, about my struggles, about how I think and why I think that way, about how I feel and why I feel that way. One of the questions I keep asking myself is what attracts me the most in coaching. My answer almost all the time is I am passionate about coaching as it creates the right platform for assisting people to feel good.
When do people feel good? When they are in ease and in peace with themselves. When they are aware of who they are and when they can accept themselves as they are, when they feel empowered to make the changes they choose in their lives and when they feel valued in their relationships, valued at work, most importantly valued by themselves. People feel good when they have a Purpose and Passion in their lives.
How can I contribute to people as a coach so that they feel good, better, in ease and in peace? By listening wholeheartedly, by asking powerful questions, by genuine care, by creating a trusting platform, by having a non-judgemental attitude regardless of the subject we are working on. Last but not least by offering a structure, a path that they can follow.
My model “Path to IDEAL Self” summarised below is aimed at offering a structure to clarify and simplify the path to achieving our goals and shaping our future.
