Can you describe briefly the technique or methodology you use?
I use many theories from as many world class and thoughtful mentors as I can contact. I believe in right sized tennis, progressive complexity and game based teaching methods.
It varies really on the needs of the client and the style of coaching they require. I use NLP techniques, TGROW, I draw upon The Work model by Byron Katie, and I use my intuition quite a lot during sessions. I don't just ask questions, but neither do I tell clients what they "should" or "should not" do. I also draw upon some psychometric tools.
Simple techniques and terminology. Functionalism
My coaching is pretty unique. Though I trained as a counselor early in my career and I do understand emotional issues, clients find I focus on results, practical strategies and the real world. I stay clear of "touchy-feely" language as well as business jargon.
That is an interesting question. My technique if you can call it that, is to listen to my client. To hear what it is he or she wants to accomplish and then to determine where they are now in the process. From there I work with him or her to create a plan of action to get from where they are now to where they want to be. Then I break that down to the smallest possible first step and I help them take that one step and then the next one . . . until they have arrived where they wanted to go.
Wholistic approach to coaching and I use sign language.
I ask deep questions and listen for areas that the client may not be aware of in their answers that may be cues to a solution, apply assessments, allow the clients to find the answers within themselves and form their own plan to implement and help with staying on plan through accountability.
I have developed a 4 part coaching process using lots of creative tools, from those I've invented to applying common ones in new ways like mindmapping.
The 4 parts of the process relate to answering these 4 questions:
1. Who am I? (what are my passions, values, skills and how do I like to work)
2. What is my purpose at work if I'm in my ideal career?
3. What does it look like when I'm doing that purpose? (the details of how you apply your mission in day to day life)
4. Those 3 answers provide your vision, literally seeing what your day is like in your ideal job in answering the third question. The 4th question is:
How do I make that vision real? Or, how do I succeed?
My coaching practice is one which embraces the "whole" person. We integrate a mind body, and spirit philosophy that results in all three bodies to be in alignment enabling my clients to not only achieve those goals but to have a positive experience with permanent results.
To answer, I will use a technique that I developed from nlp with you now. For many people there negative self talk limits them, so think back to a time you gave yourself negative self talk. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 representing the most limiting, how limiting is your negative self talk? Ok. Imagine you can hear that negative self talk now, where does this voice originate from - inside or outside your mind? Now imagine you can turn this voice into a shape, what shape is your voice? What colour is your shape? Now move the shape from your head to your shoulder, how does the negative self talk feel now? Move the shape from your shoulder down towards your elbow. How do you feel now, is the negative feeling vanishing? From your elbow move the shale towards the palm of your hand, and from the palm of your hand let the shape drop onto your leg - how do you feel now? Better? Let the shape drop down towards your knee and towards your foot. How do you feel? Let the shape drop off your foot onto the floor and if you feel the edge to kick it away, kick it far away now. On a scale of 1-10 how limiting do you feel? For most the negative feelings vanished long ago.

It is fully explained on my website.
My belief is that if you want to do something in life, you have to decide to commit to it. Once you commit yourself, it starts to change your life.
Before I was working out, I would eat the wrong foods and stay up late at night. I didn't really take good care of myself. After I started to workout, I HAD to eat better and by the end of the day, I was tired, so getting on a regular schedule became easy.
I don't know if that is a methodology, but I start by telling people that their commitment is the most important thing. You are investing in you. It is only 90 days to get started, which seems like a long time, but like they say, it only takes 30 days to create a habit. Once you commit and keep going, it gets to be a lot of fun and changes your whole life.
