It is a good idea to become familiar with the models available and then to use your own judgment about which of them to use and when. Not all coaching sessions need a model and you will need to be flexible in your approach. This eBook describes three well-known coaching models: GROW, TGROW, and OSKAR.
Regardless of the coaching model you decide to use, the culture and ethos of your own organization will have an impact on your ability to perform as a coach. Some organizations may lack an understanding of the value of coaching, not see it as a priority, or have a low level of coaching skills and experience available within the organization. These are issues that you need to consider and assess how extensive they are when deciding if coaching is the best way to develop your staff. If there are too many obstacles then you may find that attempting to use coaching will have a detrimental rather than a motivational effect.
You will learn how to: use active listening techniques to demonstrate genuine interest in the coachee, ask different types of question to focus attention, elicit new ideas, encourage exploration and foster commitment, develop rapport and give feedback in a way that is positive and non-judgmental, use the GROW, TGROW and OSKAR models in a practical coaching session with a team member, and recognize and overcome organizational barriers to coaching.
