Advanced GROW ‘OW’ - Focusing on ‘Options’ and ‘Way Forward’
Live training Accelerator Day
Once more building familiarity and confidence in the GROW model, this live training day concentrates on the ‘Options’ and ‘Way Forward’ aspects, as well as introducing a range of ideas for keeping clients going on their path forward.
Generating new ideas and options with a client, when they feel they are totally stuck, is a big challenge for many new coaches. This training day looks at ways to keep the options flowing by taking a different perspective on the situation. Your tutor will also teach you to identify resourceful states, and talk through ways of designing great actions that will leave a client 100% committed to its achievement.
A further session on deep questioning precedes the final part of the day which looks at a couple of key issues that every coach will come up against at some point in their coaching career.
Firstly, how do you deal with a client whose motivation to complete a goal is dipping badly?
Approaching problems in a new way is often the solution. Added creativity and and thinking outside of the box can keep the client excited about moving forward.
And secondly, how does a coach deal with a client’s procrastination? When the ‘Way Forward’ looks uncertain how do you as the coach help the client clear the path toward the goal so they can set out once more with confidence?
“In essence, GROW is coaching. Without the structure that GROW affords, clients would lack direction, awareness, commitment and action,” says Kris Robertson, who is responsible for mentoring The Coaching Academy’s student coaches.

Five Ways To Build Rapport
What we say can create or destroy rapport, but interestingly only 7% of communication is the spoken word. Our body language and our tone of voice are more important than the actual words spoken.
Limiting beliefs are those things you believe about yourself that place limitations on your abilities. Limiting beliefs are simply assumptions about reality that are not true. In order for our actions to have the greatest positive effect, we need to have beliefs that are as close to reality as possible - deceiving ourselves will take us further from the goal.
The GROW (Goal, Reality, Options, Will) model is the most common and widely used coaching tool. It empowers the coach to structure a coaching conversation and deliver a meaningful result.
The GROW acronym suggests that a coach using the GROW model is likely to start by asking the client to set goals, both for what they want to get out of the coaching sessions as a whole and for each individual session.

Going For The Goal
One of the core skills most coaches deal with is goal setting. It seems relatively straight forward, yet most of us and our clients find it hard to achieve the goals we’ve set, so let’s take a good look at why that is and what we can do about it. The most common model for goal-setting is represented by the acronym SMART – specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time based. The other element that is usually stressed is that the goal should be positive; for instance, instead of saying “I will lose 20 pounds,” one might say, “I will have a stable, healthy weight of 12 stone.
