In an intervention like coaching, where there is as much art as science involved, sometimes it can feel like we're Luke Skywalker from Star Wars, hoping and praying the 'Force' will be with us as we navigate life with our clients.
The majority of us have natural talent and intuition which we use prominently in our coaching sessions. We don't know exactly how we improve our client's condition, but we do, or so they tell us, so we rest easy.
What If There Were 68 Very Specific, Very Common Situations Humans Find Themselves In...Would You Want To Know What They Are?
Even more so, would you like to know how, as a coach, you can help your clients transform those situations into breakthroughs? As counterintuitive as it may seem, Thomas Leonard, often called the Father of Modern Professional Coaching, was convinced that we should be able to simulate real life and learn how to respond to those situations - practice, as it were, how to get through tough stuff before it actually happened.
He wrote the How to Coach Anyone mini-mentor coaching case studies with this in mind, making sure his answers were as detailed as possible, covering 'what to say,' 'what might be happening,' 'how to overcome client objections' and more. It's astounding, really, to recognize how confident he was that we could predict and prepare for what would happen in our clients lives.
My name is Andrea Lee and as General Manager for Thomas Leonard during the time he developed this compilation of case studies, it was an incredible apprenticeship to watch him craft these lessons. But what's perhaps more telling even than the lessons themselves is how there has never been another attempt to create a resource like this, before or since.In a field full of training, information, and even practicum and demonstrations, this offering remains in a category of one. When I think of this work, I am never more grateful that Thomas left behind so much shining writing.
You Can Feel At Ease With This Inexpensive Yet Deep Well Of Experience As A Reference For Tough Client Moments
Sure, not every coaching session is going to allow you to pause, flip through a resource, and go back to that precious coaching moment. But chances are much better that once you've absorbed these lesson before hand, you'll be able to call forth the experience you'll have borrowed.
And while the actual 'how to' part of the lessons has received too many kudos to count, there is something more available here, and that is confidence. Some things can be taught, and some things must be caught. By immersing yourself in the thought processes, humor and mental agility Thomas reveals in the lessons, you will, like thousands of coaches before you, pick up new being and doing skills.
Note: This Compilation Of Case Studies Is Quite Personal
Just as you bring the sum total of your life experience to your clients, so too has Thomas divulged of his life experience in the How to Coach Anyone lessons.
Could you imagine Thomas calling himself an ignoramus? He does, in Lesson 11, page 41, 'How do you coach someone who is getting their very first glimmer of awareness?'
"If you're in the mood for a giggle... yes, it's incredibly embarrassing but...
What about a direct example of how Thomas 'was just being selfish' when he created the 28 Principles of Attraction? Be sure to read carefully Lesson 14, page 53 'How do you coach someone particularly sensitive to the point of being apparently fragile?'
"To be successful I had to create a Personal Operating System that was safe for me,
Then of course there's his use of adrenaline (Lesson 18, page 66), and more, throughout, making the lessons highly absorbing and entertaining in addition to practical.
At a price point of less than US $1 for each case study, the How to Coach Anyone volume is well worth considering for every coach's library, and why not? I've reproduced titles of all 68 of the scenarios below so you can be the judge for yourself:
Because I'd like there to be no doubt here, let me say that each of the lessons has specific answers to each scenario, with multiple approaches detailed out with suggested phrases to use, scripts to follow and anticipated objections addressed. A true mini-mentor coaching lesson multiplied by 68!
Of The 68 Coaching Scenarios, Which Ones Might You Encounter With A Client Next? Will You Be Highly Comfortable And At Ease When You Do?
I know that's what Thomas would hope - it's why he wrote the lessons, after all. In fact may I make a suggestion? Whether you select the physical book or the PDF download, book time in your calendar to begin digesting these lessons. Unread and unutilized, they are untapped potential. But once they enter your mind, they can do much good through you, with your clients.
