||What You'll Learn
In This Clip
Structure For Feeling Peace
||Becoming accountable for actions; structuring
a specific goal; action plan to implement goal
||The coach was very encouraging throughout
the session. Questioning style, persistence and reinforcement
of points proved to be very effective. Turned discussion
into action and made the client accept accountability.
Much Bigger View of Life
||Introducing 'fun' into life / goal setting;
implementing structure into life planning; gaining direction
and linking this with integrity
||Dealt with an advanced client particularly
well. Direct, straightforward and was able to add value
to someone who is already quite 'aware'. Shared excellent
tools and examples. Audio a little poor at times. Encouraged
the client to think big and tap into additional issues
for future discussion e.g. relationship imbalance.
||Working through personal definition of
'lack of confidence'; identifying personal barriers
/ fear; respecting & accepting self
||Coach dealt with a flat/down person very
well. Proved to be comfortable in a difficult situation.
Took risks to get her to open up. Checked client's understanding
/ connection before moving on. Towards end, the process
moved quite slowly - getting a little stagnant. Coach
lifted the mood of the conversation significantly at
end. Great example of dealing with a 'resistant' or
Up For Your Values in the Toughest Situation
||Coach was supportive yet confronted very
difficult issues with client; helped client see difficult
situations from very different perspectives; empowered
client to make hard choices by showing there is a conflict
with her values and current plan
||This was coaching at its best. The coach
worked with the client through a very emotional situation
regarding her son. The coach guided the client to a
place where she recognized that she needed to honour
her values at the risk of making her son angry. Coach
was respectful yet focused. Coach should have also referred
her to a legal practioner as there were legal issues

abuse 'self'; introducing a simple plan to start positive
||Another superb example. Coach gave the
client a clear example of some strategies for self-care,
helped her set up a chart, revealed his own struggle
with these issues and made it clear that this was not
a TEST - that it was up to her what went on the list
and how to implement it.
||How to finally take responsibility for
looking after yourself; covers "pain management" in
a physical and emotional sense
||The analogy of the terrorist attacks put
things into perspective - highlighted 'coping' issues.
Coach was very supportive. The coach could have picked
up on the recurring issue of "stress levels" and explored
it further - perhaps a missed opportunity. Altogether,
some excellent coaching here.

||Preparing for a difficult, personal discussion;
implementing an action plan; gaining commitment to the

style of coach. Demonstrated positive approach and simplified
the process in dealing with a difficult issue.

||This clip takes quite a while to get there.
However, a great example of bringing a client who is
distracted back on track. Effectively minimised emotion
and was able to encourage the client to explore tough
issues around her behaviour. Great feedback was provided
following the role play. Stretched the client while
'checking in' for comfort level.
||Steps to finding your way out of a rut;
overcome frustration; changing negative attitudes; setting
achievable targets; being present and enjoying the present;
tips on time management and prioritising
