Coaching is simply asking questions to help someone get from point A to point B—from Here (where they are now) to There (where they want to go).

Did you know that you could effectively coach a brain surgeon one day, a technology company CEO the next day, and a state governor the following day?

You may be wondering, “How can that be?” The answer is, you don’t need to be a Subject Matter Expert to coach someone. You simply ask the questions, and they provide the content.

Would you like to see The Coaching Process that I use to coach leaders around the globe?

In its simplest form, The Coaching Process asks:

1. Where do you want to go? (There)
2. Where are you now? (Here)
3. What will you have to do to get from Here to There?

The Coaching Process below adds a few more questions—but the essence is really the 3 questions above.

So what can you do to sharpen your coaching skills? (Clue: You can’t learn to swim by reading a book on swimming! You have to jump into the water!)

You are 100% correct—You have to start coaching someone! Which of your associates/friends could you share this chapter with to suggest that the two of you meet—perhaps over breakfast or lunch—to coach each other?

You have just listened and/or read “Chapter 13” from “Now That’s a Great Question.”  You can request your free download of the entire Audiobook and/or eBook by clicking HERE
