Becoming a great coach: goal and reality

It is impossible to become a great coach without practising coaching itself. This unit focuses on participants experiencing the coaching process in ‘triads’ from three points of view: being the coach, being the coachee, and being an observer.

The GROW model has four stages: Goal, Reality, Options and Will.

In this unit, participants will experience the goal and reality stages. In Unit 4, they will go on to the options and will stages.
