Have you ever asked yourself why people like Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, and Eric Schmidt (Founder of Google) as well as a host of top executives, actors, and athletes have Life Coaches?  The reason is they want to accelerate and maximize their potential by achieving set goals.

Coaching Philosophy and Tools

 

Our coaches utilize multiple tools where appropriate to achieve the desired outcome.

Grow Model

The GROW model stands for:  Goal | Current Reality | Options (or Obstacles) | Will (or way forward)

The model was originally developed in the 1980s by business coaches Graham Alexander, Alan Fine, and Sir John Whitmore.

A good way of thinking about the GROW Model is to think about how you’d plan a journey. First, you decide where you are going (the goal), and establish where you currently are (your current reality). You then explore various routes (the options) to your destination. In the final step, establishing the will, you ensure that you’re committed to making the journey, and are prepared for the obstacles that you could meet on the way.

Ikigai Advising Model

The reason for being, something that makes you get out of bed in the morning

Ikigai, a reason for being. It comes from Japanese, where Iki refers to “life” and Gai to “the realization of what one expects and hopes for”. It is no coincidence that in the Okinawa culture, which belongs to the cultures where people live the longest, everyone knows their Ikigai.

On a more pragmatical level, the concept of Ikigai can help you find your vocation. What makes most people get out of bed every morning is their job. While some people do it because they have to, others do it because they love what they’re doing. The second group of people can be a huge source of inspiration for all of us. I believe that everyone is able to find or create a job they love and that gives them a reason for living.

Clifton Strengths Finder

The Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment was created under the leadership of educational psychologist Donald Clifton. He wanted to identify the skills of the best of the best of the best, and to capitalize on them.  

 

Life Bridge Exercise

We help students who feel stuck and can’t see the way out. Sometimes all we need is to take (any) action to move forward and get ourselves unstuck!  A proven exercise enables a student to unlock an effective path forward which aids in accelerating attainment of their goal.
