Leading with the brain in mind.

Coaching Tip – Ask people what they will do and by when to help them ‘design’ their plan of action.

The fourth step of the GUIDE coaching model is ‘Design’. Your job as a coach in this step of the model is to support your coachee to ‘design’ their plan to move forward to achieve their goal.

According to Merriam Webster dictionary the definition of DESIGN is: 1) to create, fashion, execute, or construct according to plan, 2) to conceive and plan out in the mind. Perfect! Your role as coach is to ask questions which foster thinking on the design of their action plan. Solution based thinking will be prompted by asking questions such as: What can you commit to? What is your first Step? When will you get started? Who can help?

In this step of the coaching model the coachee articulates what they will do and by when to achieve their goals.

Who can you ask questions of today to support the design of their action plan?
