Having a consistent and uniform approach to coaching enables you to coach more effectively with strategy and direction.

Using a coaching model will also instil confidence in your employee, because they see a methodical and well thought out approach. When we approach coaching haphazardly, we become disorganised and this creates frustrating coaching sessions and lack lustre outcomes.
The GROW model helps you organise your coaching process with a flow that identifies the goal first and ends with putting a plan together. Here are the details of the GROW model:
- Goal setting: A goal has to be set in order to give direction and purpose to the coaching session. Ambiguous goals are usually never achieved. Setting the goal first shapes your discussion with your employee and sets the tone.
- Reality check: Both you and your employee in Auckland must come to terms on the current state or level of performance or any issues that are causing breakdowns. Getting to the bottom of the problem begins with identifying it and claiming. From there obstacles are better identified.
- Options developed: Here you and your employee explore action steps that will help them improve their performance. Usually goals options that are prefabricated by an employee’s manager result in poor buy-in and missed goals. Allow your employee to explore options they develop.
- Wrap it up with a plan: Once you nail down an option or two, it is time to strike it down on paper so to speak. If it is not written down, it won’t happen. Creating a well-defined plan is essential in order to know the direction you need to go in Auckland and to demonstrate success or failure.
GROW is a simple yet powerful coaching methodology. Following the GROW process consistently will develop a natural process of coaching for you.
Coaching should be a natural and rewarding experience for all parties involved. This puts you and your employee at ease, making the whole process more valuable and rewarding.
