What specifically is coaching?
Coaching is one of the fastest growing new professions. What is the appeal? Recent issues of Newsweek, Money Magazine and the Wall Street Journal urge professionals to avail themselves of the services of a personal coach. Why? Dedicated athletes use coaches to increase their focus and to provide support, structure, and ongoing accountability to prepare them for win/lose competitions. Organizations and individuals who hire coaches are interested in having, being, and doing their best, not settling for less. We humans have a deep need to grow and develop, to actualize our potential.
The Personal and Professional Coaches Association defines coaching as "an ongoing relationship, which focuses on clients taking action toward the realization of their vision, goals or desires. Coaching uses a process of inquiry and personal discovery to build the clients level of awareness and responsibility, and provides the client with structure, support and feedback." How is that different from existing professions? Like counseling, it is client centered and individual. Like consulting, it is outcome oriented, dealing in visions and actions. The major difference between masterful training, counseling, therapy, consulting or mentoring and masterful coaching can be described quite simply. The coach does not have answers. The coach does not provide expertise. A coach operates from the presupposition that the client (player) has all the resources, including the ability to discover and utilize resources.
How Long Does A Coaching Relationship Last?
Most coaches require an initial commitment of three to six months from players; many individuals often remain within the coaching relationship much longer. One of our main objective of coaching is to help the player establish habits of personal inquiry and accountability, that way after they complete their initial work with us they may cut back to monthly or quarterly focus sessions.
Often after an initial month or two, players learn to make powerful use of the relationship and have changed their expectations about the coaching relationship. They begin with the assumption that the coach will have all the answers and will get them on "the program" that will lead to personal success. Though usually after several months the understanding shifts and the players begin taking responsibility for the changes they create in their lives. Then the efforts of creating success in their lives becomes much easier once they learn it's all based upon THIER actions! We are just the guide!
What Does The Coach Provide?
The coach holds a safe space within which the player can explore. That space allows the player a "time out" to evaluate how the game is going, to establish the evidence procedures for success, and to strategize future action steps. The coach does not judge results. There is no failure, only feedback. The coach does expect the player to take responsibility and to develop the flexibility to overcome barriers.
Coaches also provide structure. As coaches hear players express a desire for action, they make requests. Examples of requests are: "Will you make two calls about that this week?" "Will you spend ten minutes a day on this?" Requests are negotiable. The player might counter, "No, I won’t do it every morning, but Ill do it three times this week." The alliance evolves. Once requests are accepted, coaches hold players accountable for taking those actions.
As individuals, most of us prefer self generated action steps, yet we often fail to take them because no outside force holds us to them. We rarely have deadlines for the things we want to do for ourselves, so they go to the bottom of the "to do" list. By holding a player accountable, the coach sets up an expectation. The call provides a deadline. In my own experience working with a coach, I have often done things on my list in the half hour before my coaching call. Without the structure of coaching, I would let those things slide. Players choose the steps they want to be held accountable for. The coach provides an external expectation that those steps will be taken.
Designing Our Alliance
The coach and player work together to design an alliance. They define structures that will support the player as he or she moves toward a goal. Players have the most up to date and complete information about how they operate. They know what structures or habits will encourage their movement.
They know from experience what on the spot decisions they have to make. The player is in the game; the coach is only on the sidelines. Only the player can take action. Some of the questions addressed in the process of designing the alliance includes: How do I want to be held accountable for moving toward my goals? What perspectives do I want my coach to remind me of? What is the best use of my coaching time? The alliance evolves as the player discovers more of what works best. The coach does not know. The player does.
The coach does not define how things should be, but is committed to helping the player clarify "what is" (the present state) and what he or she wants in the future. What is your game? What "gold" are you going for? The "how" pieces, how to get from here to there, present state to desired state, don’t come from the coach. The player has those answers. Players define the game and create the game plans; coaches help them stay on track.
Many beginning players start the process expecting the coach to have answers, the magic "tip." Yet the coach, confers on the player a powerful sense of control and responsibility. The player operates according to his/her own map. The player is familiar with the environment and knows the other players and the rules of the game. The skillful coach helps to articulate and perhaps challenge those rules and raises questions. In the process of outlining the game and the rules for the coach, the player gains clarity. Action steps emerge!
NLP and Coaching
NLP presuppositions, skills, and models serve the coach in many ways. Several of the presuppositions of NLP are particularly useful in establishing the coaching frame. In reading this article, I’m sure you have noticed many of them. Everyone has the resources he or she needs. The worth of an individual is constant, while the behavior can change. The map is not the territory. We respond to our maps, not to any "objective" reality. It is better to have choices than not to have choices. Behavioral flexibility is more useful than having limited behavioral choices. Every behavior has a positive intent. There are no mistakes, only feedback. These presuppositions balance responsibility with non-judgment, and allow the player to evaluate without being self- deprecating.
By living these presuppositions, experienced NLP practitioners naturally embody the attitudes of great coaches both assume that the player is capable. Both have experience exploring underlying mental frameworks that either support or inhibit growth. They are less likely to get distracted by "the story," the surface structure. They assist players in finding the deep structure of their experience, where profound change takes place.
NLP skills assist the coach in every session. Since much of coaching takes place on the phone, an NLP coach uses sensory acuity to listen to the players voice tone and tempo. In addition, the coach knows how to listen at different levels, to the player’s message and to the meta-message. The NLP coach listens for familiar language patterns that indicate player’s self-imposed limits, and he/she knows how to generate powerful questions in response to those patterns. The NLP coach can introduce the idea of multiple perspectives through skillful questioning. "What might your future self suggest?" "Is this the critic? What does the dreamer have to say?"

We also assist sports professionals and athlete’s to achieve peak performance in their mental game as well. Arnold Palmer once said; “Golf is a game of inches. The most important are the six inches between your ears.” So you’ve hired a golf instructor, taken the lessons and improved your swing. You know the mechanics and yet you've come to the point where you no longer feel you’re improving. The game of golf, like any other sport, is 80% mental. The ability to become outstanding is determined by the state of mind and the preparation you do before and during the game. If you’ve only invested in technical aspects of your game, it’s time now, to invest in your mental capability and improve your focused concentration. Your ability to tap into an empowering state of mind at any moment of play is essential and will take your performance to the next level by working with me as your performance coach.
