You want them to move to a desired outcome or result so that you can co-create a goal.
If they talk about a Problem – something they don’t want
If they talk about a Remedy – something they think fixes the problem
If they talk about an Outcome or you coach them to one
Once they have indicated the Outcome is desirable and they have expressed a connection to it emotionally and practically then ask:
What do you need to learn, change, develop or do differently in order for that Outcome to happen?
How will you capture that? (write it down, type it)
Challenge them to strengthen the language watching for any “soft” or “weak” words like: maybe, might, could, try, should
Ask: On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most important, How important is it for you to achieve this?
What would you like to leave this coaching session with that would make you feel like you will be able to make progress toward your goal?
Repeat the PROG and WFG processes with the Session Goal ending with a Goal for the session or the remaining time in the session
Once the Session Goal has clarity and energy then move to explore Reality
