A Coaching Model By Rob Street
Education Coach, HONG KONG
It will be critical to keep the child grounded on the ‘Road Forward.’ Adults are accustomed to children providing the “right” answer. It should be obvious that the child, not the adult, has the correct answer. For younger children, an adult may have to judge what the child is capable of, but for older children, the decision must be made by the child. Instead of pressuring the child to make the plan robust, this idea is a crucial time to remain neutral, expressing neither support nor resistance to the child’s proposal.
