Want to get right to the heart of the matter in every coaching session?
Posted on: 13 Feb 2020
Have you ever found yourself halfway through a session without clear direction? How about five minutes before the session ends and you’ve only just hit upon the real issue? And let’s not forget the sessions that run over time because you can’t wrap up when you’re only partway through.
Too many coaches get seduced by their clients’ stories and are repeatedly trapped by the same pitfalls. Moreover, many of these coaches aren’t even aware it’s happening until it’s too late. To counter this, ReciproCoach has partnered with Marion Franklin, MCC, and author of The HeART of Laser-Focused Coaching. Of the many coaching books available, we want to ensure you do not miss this book. Plus, not only do we want to make sure you read it, we also want you make sure you practice, experiment with and explore it via our Laser-Focused Coach Training Round.
This Laser-Focused Coach Training Round is ideal for you if you want to:
- know exactly what to listen for in every session
- quickly identify what’s really going on
- avoid getting seduced by the story
- ask questions that get right to the heart of the matter
- have the client do all of the summary
- know how to create the shift and what to do afterwards
- recognize the client’s underlying pattern and know how to address it
If you’ve ever bought a book, read some of it, applied even less of it, and put it on the shelf to gather dust, this peer coaching round will ensure you make the most of The HeART of Laser-Focused Coaching. The round will laser your attention in on the most impactful sections of the book. Then, coupled with six 30 minute sessions with your coach and client respectively, as well as structured debriefing and reflection on each experience, you’ll get more than 6 solid hours of applying Laser-Focused Coaching in a safe peer coaching environment, before you try it in your wider coaching practice. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to join a Laser-Focused Coaching group mentoring session together with Marion (available for registration separately here – not included in the peer coaching round) to ask questions and hear Marion’s candid, direct and refreshing feedback on some live coaching.
For more information about the Laser-Focused Coach Training Round and what it includes, click here, or, if you already know you want to laser-focus your coaching, simply click here to register. Registrations close Sunday March 15.
Personally, I love the combination of direct training coupled together with peer coaching. It’s one of the most effective learning strategies I’ve experienced to date. I look forward to the possibility of working with you in this Laser-focused Coach Training Round and/or group mentoring session.
