When it comes to helping your client find effective solutions, the coaching techniques are a little unique and very much focused on getting the client to where he or she wants to be within a stipulated period of time.
The idea behind the techniques would be to challenge the client to reach heights never before thought of possible with the help and guidance of you, the coach.
The coach would ideally want to understand the vision that the client has and then create and outline of steps that the client will be able to follow to effectively get the vision from that stage to reality. In some cases, the inclusion of inspiring tips may be needed to get the client excited about reaching the end goal faster.
Coaching techniques would also require the coaching session to include helping the client to discover the life currently lead in more depth and explore changes so that personal development and accomplishments, both professionally and personally can be made. Making the client accountable and helping the client reach his or her true potential is the key to developing the growth factor.
There is also the active participation of the coach in helping the client to increase the creativity, productive and effectiveness levels in tackling tasks set in the quest to reach the end goal, as projected. Bringing out skills that the client already possess will help in reaching the goal and also to accelerate the choices made in terms of career and personal choices. This is also something the coach would have to try and incorporate into the coaching sessions. Helping the client shed any fears and hesitations that are causing the current slump should also be part to the coaching techniques, as this too will help the client be an overall effective person.
