Coaching that doesn't last isn't coaching. Successful coaching is about helping others to help themselves. Successful coaching is collaborative coaching. It's also about knowing that when the coaching intervention is complete, the change will persist and become a permanent shift. And that's where most coaching falls down.
'The Seven Cs Of Coaching' is carefully designed to offer a collaborative framework that will help ensure old patterns of behaviour are broken, and new ones are formed - and maintained. Through building trust, giving feedback, challenging perceptions, highlighting limiting beliefs and surfacing shadows the coach is able to cut the rubber band that pulls the client in the unwanted direction. Then using techniques such as directional setting, creativity tools, rich measures, choice management and planned withdrawal processes, the coach can help the client lock in the new pattern of behaviour. 'The Seven Cs Of Coaching' is a way of packaging and presenting what can be a very complex process in a way that helps the coach deliver value through sustainable change.
With the same sharpness of mind and clarity of thought that created 'The Seven Cs Of Consulting' - the now widely adopted definitive guide to the process of consulting - Mick Cope has turned to coaching to develop the definitive guide to the process. A guide that does not rely on old or outdated models, but that reveals a new process of enabling sustainable change. Whether you are a professional coach or a manager wishing to develop your coaching skills, 'The Seven Cs Of Coaching' is an invaluable guide.
