Coaching in 60 words

There are more theories, definitions, and books on coaching than we need. Here’s my 60-word perspective on coaching after more than two decades in this most interesting field.

Observing sharply
Thinking systemically
Confronting self-deception
Discovering blind spots
Uncovering thinking distortions
Asking profound questions
Revealing and unraveling assumptions
Connecting the seemingly unconnected
Strengthening focus
Probing provocatively
Increasing candor
Clarifying options
Reinforcing awareness
Aligning values and actions
Stimulating discovery
Creating clarity
Shifting perspectives
Illuminating opportunities
Encouraging courage and risks
Decreasing victim behavior
Strengthening resilience
Holding accountable

Caring, trusting, confronting, supporting
