The 5th and final step of the Expedition Guide Coaching Model is ENABLE. Our purpose as a coach is to ask questions which foster solution-based thinking which ENABLES others to move forward to achieve their goals.
The Merriam-webster dictionary says the definition of Enable is to: make possible, practical, or easy. As a coach, what questions can you ask a coachee to help them make their goals possible, practical and easy?
Questions in this step that ENABLE others can pertain to barriers that might get in the way, success factors, and their plan of action. My favorite questions to ENABLE others are “What will you do? And by When?”
