A Coaching Framework & Process
In coaching, the coach partners with the individuals in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to find their own solutions, maximizing and unlocking their potential in all aspects of their professional and personal lives.
The pathway to achieve this is through the use of a coaching model. A model that offers flexibility and a framework for the coaching conversation; like dancing in the moment of the coaching conversation, and the overall coaching journey or process to realizing their potential.
Using the coaching model framework, the coach helps the clients to recognize their beliefs, perceptions, assumptions, thought patterns, etc, and reflect on those insights, leading to a shift in perspective(s) that enables them to take pertinent actions to produce the change and results they want.
The model also helps the coach envision the process or the systems that would support the clients in making the transformation journey. The key is for the clients to recognize that their behavior in a situation is not isolated, but is within the wider context of the environment in which they operate. Understanding their behavior and its effects on others will enable the mind and body (heart-gut) shifts that will lead to transformation.
The C O R E Model
The CORE model, uses the DNA as metaphor and the acronym CORE represents the four (4) steps in coaching: Consciousness, Observation, Response and Enablement.
- Why DNA? - DNA represents structure, building blocks, encoded information forming the CORE essence of the entity (person and organization). The “DNA” of the “person” gives a clue into their behaviors in relation to the wider context of the “organizational” environment in which they operate.
- Person's DNA - is a way of emphasizing a fundamental aspect of their nature. It also represents what they have nurtured over time. The interacting elements in their nature and learned systems (nurtured) are their traits, beliefs, perceptions, assumptions, thoughts and habits. These elements embedded in the mind and body have direct and indirect influence on their performance.
- Organizational DNA - represents the idiosyncratic characteristics of a company. The individuals' behavior, particularly the leaders, determine the characteristics and hence the organization's success over time.
- Why CORE? - the core represents the central or innermost parts; of basic importance; essential; the crucial element or essence of an entity. It also represents the ability of the individual and the collective, to possess the strength and stability for functional and dynamic movements (kínēsis) to achieve the goals, performance, and results
