A Coaching Model Created by Renee Townsend
(Business Coach, UNITED STATES)
The REVEAL Coaching Model focuses on client enlightenment. As becoming in tuned with our true selves allows us to achieve a more fulfilling life and interact more productively with those around us.
R – Responsibility
We are responsible for our thoughts and actions. As such, claiming responsibility puts us in control of our lives. This does not suggest we are unaffected by our environment. Rather it means that in spite of the circumstances and situations we encounter, we have choices and are responsible for outcomes based upon our choices. The REVEAL Coach works with the clients to explore areas of their life where they can take actions or modify their perspective, in order to pursue a path which leads to fulfillment.
E – Empowerment
Personal change happens when we empower ourselves. Though we can be empowered by external sources, that type of empowerment means nothing if we don’t claim ownership. Recognizing we have the ability to empower ourselves is the most powerful form of liberation, allowing us to be free to choice our own direction. The REVEAL Coach helps clients understand that they are not chained by social conventions and that they are the main source of their empowerment.
V – Values
Fulfillment is possible when we lead a life led by our values. When we go against our values, we experience dissonance. This conflict between values and actions acts as a disruption, sapping motivation and decreasing our quality of life. In contrast, working in tangent with our values helps be more productive, as we find ourselves working towards are true purpose. The REVEAL Coach helps clients identify their core values, which are the true drivers behind their actions.
E – Engaged
We can succeed when we’re fully engaged and committed to the outcomes. Leading a meaningful life takes continuous effort. The obstacles we encounter along the way can be discouraging and push us to give up. However, finding meaning in life is not a destination, but an exciting journey to be experienced again and again. The REVEAL Coach works with clients to bring to light their hopes, dreams, and mission in life and acts as an accountability partner as requested.
A – Awareness
Through self-awareness we’re able to understand ourselves and accept others. Throughout life, we are indoctrinated with social conventions which influence the way we perceive ourselves and the world. Some of these social conventions align with our internal values and beliefs, while others do not. When we separate social conventions from our core values, we become self-aware and are better able to fulfill our inner most desires. Self-awareness also leads to a shift in perspective in terms of our relationships. We being to realize that the way we view others is a reflection of ourselves and not the other person. Self-awareness allows us to view differences with openness and acceptance. The REVEAL Coach helps clients become mindful of their viewpoints, so they can shift their focus on maximizing their strengths and accept individuals for who they are and not who they want them to be.
L – Learn
Becoming life-long learners allows us to continually grow and improve. Life is a series of successes and failures, each with the potential to be powerful learning experiences. We cannot change the past. However, we can choose to learn, adapt, and meet the present as a new opportunity to be explored. The REVEAL Coach helps clients change perspective, which keep them stagnant and fearful of embracing new situations, to learning opportunities, which can lead to self-actualization.
