The Grow Model

Back to my roots for this month’s blog - I came across this short video on the GROW model for coaching, something I have used a lot in the past to help myself and the coachees I’m working with stay focused. I also find it useful for self coaching, both on a work and personal level - it helps me think through situations and is a useful way of cutting through confusion when trying to make a decision. 

What about you - do you use any particular coaching model to guide your coaching work? If not how do you ensure coaching conversations have focus and direction? Whether you use a recognised model or not are there any particular questions you ask on a regular basis because you’ve found them successful in the past?

What do you see?

How can the clip be used as a metaphor for something that is happening in your life (good or bad)? 

What does it spark inside you in terms of seeing a new way forward you had not previously considered?

Let me know how you used the image
