Thought Provokers for Coaches and mentors

By June 14, 2016Uncategorized

Michael Neil the renowned US Coach and NLP expert suggests that effective coaching has a formula.  So I was intrigued by this.

His formula is

Focussed intention /Time x Understanding Human Experience = Creative flow of results

Now I get the focussed attention and clearly this takes time to achieve.  But what exactly does he mean by understanding human experience.

It’s a number of things that a coach brings to the relationship:

  • Trust
  • Rapport
  • Deep listening
  • Reflecting back what is being said
  • Reflecting back what is not being said

If you were to draw up a list of the magical, intangible factors that make for outstanding coaching outcomes what would you include?
