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:
- 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?
