What is coaching?

Coaching can be a useful tool to drive improvement, but what is it?

Coaching is a safe and supportive process centered on a structured conversation between the coach and the client, empowering individuals and helping them to reach their goals.

The coach is not a mentor, counsellor or consultant or there to provide suggestions and advice. Rather, the coach is there to ask carefully targeted questions to help the client find his or her own solutions to the challenges they face.

How does coaching work?

Coaches use different models to structure their sessions. A popular model and one of the models used is the GROW model. This is an acronym for the areas explored: Goals, Reality, Options and the Way forward. Coaching for improvement works through a simple 6 point process:

  1. Review the previous session and the actions that you completed
  2. Set the goal for that session
  3. Consider where you are at the present moment with this goal
  4. Consider your options in meeting this goal
  5. Agree on some actions
  6. Summarise the session before completing the session.

In coaching for improvement, this model keeps you moving forward and ensures improvement happens, in that you will leave each session with workable actions that clients can begin to embed straight away in to their own teaching practice.
