Empowering the Coaching Relationship
Live training Accelerator Day
As your coaching skills develop and you gain more and more practical experience, the Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching develops your existing knowledge with some crucial new tools that will really enhance the coaching relationship both for you and for your clients.
A key starting point for any coach/client interaction is the need to build rapport. If you can successfully do that, creating an attentive and focused environment for the coaching session, and establishing your role as a trusted individual within the client’s life, your sessions have a real springboard to success.
The skills considered in “Empowering the Coaching Relationship” go beyond the practicalities of the GROW model: this is not about what you will do, but how you will go about doing it. So key skills here are the ability to express empathy, and how to actively listen and respond in a non-judgmental manner.
During this training day you will also think about challenging clients, helping them to develop a greater awareness of themselves and their actions. You will also look at the technique of reframing – a vital tool for showing the client a whole new perspective.
Emotional clients can be a major challenge for coaches no matter how experienced. As you coach them though some key life challenges it is not surprising that the emotions are stirred – and dealing with that is crucial. You will learn some vital techniques for dealing with client emotions, and the importance of keeping control of your coaching sessions.

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.

This younger sister was the pretty one, the one who got all the boys, according to Lucy.
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.
