Many people are unaware that there are a number of different coaching styles that can be used by a coach. Let’s have a look at some of these different coaching styles.
* Traditional Coaching Model – The coach identifies with how the client is feeling. The coach acts as a guide and confidant.
* Advanced Coaching Model – Useful when there is a need to make a considerable break from the past, and where the person wants to try new things or a new way of doing something.
* Block Removal Coaching – This coaching model works when a person is resistant to growth, which causes a block, that usually the result of a hidden fear or limiting beliefs.
* Innovation Coaching Model – This coaching model focuses on experimentation, creativity and innovation.
* 3-D Coaching Model – This coaching model works on who a person is and what they want, then how to get it.
* Personal Foundation Model – The coach will work on standards and boundaries. The higher a person wants to go, the deeper the foundation has to be.
* Bigger Thinking Model – The coach will challenge the person’s assumptions and work to break one out of their comfort zone and expand their thinking!
* Solution Coaching – The coach will identify symptoms, find out the source of those symptoms, and then work with a person to find a solution.
* Shift Coaching Model – When a person isn’t able to determine how to achieve their goals, a shift in thinking can help. The coach can help a person to step back, shift, and then move forward.
* Deep Coaching – There can be a shift in basic beliefs over time until these beliefs simply are not true any longer. The coach can help a person dig deep to discover the ‘out of date truth’ which a person can then align with the reality of today.
* Performance Coaching Model – For the client that is competitive, the coach can help by developing a persuasive goal, creating milestones to help you focus on your goals, and building momentum through reporting daily.
* Acceptance Coaching Model – Rather than a person trying to overcome a weakness, the coach can help to accept it and use it to their advantage.
* Intermediate Model – A good model when a person wants the coach to work in partnership on developing goals and then on achieving them.
