Almost on a daily basis, I am contacted by young professionals who want to grow in their career asking for guidance, mentoring and coaching.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
I would like to congratulate you for taking the initiative of personally charting your career path without waiting for your line manager or company to lead the process. This is being proactive.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
Employees and candidates who possess this skill are in high-demand. If you do not, you can start today to develop this critical skill.

Now, to the topic of today "Self-Coaching".

Let's start by understanding what #coaching is all about.

Coaching helps to unlock people's potential to maximize their own performance.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
#Coaching is about raising awareness and responsibility, that is, helping people to learn rather than teaching them.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
In the course of my trainings in #HR, I was introduced to the GROW Model of coaching.

This is an elegantly simple way of structuring an effective coaching conversation and, as such, has become one of the best loved models.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
GROW is an acronym that stands for:
GOAL
Current REALITY
OPTIONS
WILL (or WAY FORWARD)

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
The key to using GROW successfully is first to spend sufficient time exploring "G" until the coachee sets a goal which is both inspirational and stretching for them, and then move flexibly through the sequence.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
GROW coaching is so effective that you can even use it to coach yourself.

I will show you HOW through some self-coaching GROW exercises, which you can carry out even now.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
First, think about something you would really like to achieve or perhaps resolve at work.

Then write down your answers to each of the questions I will share in subsequent tweets.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
Step 1 of the GROW Model - What are your GOALS?

1. What would you like to work on?

2. What would you like to have after answering this set of questions (eg, a first step/strategy/solution)?

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
3. What is your goal related to this issue?

4. When are you going to achieve it?

5. What are the benefits for you in achieving this goal?

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
6. Who else will benefit and in what way?

7. What will it be like if you achieve your goal?

8. What will you see/hear/feel?

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
Step 2 of the GROW Model - What is the REALITY?

9. What action have you taken so far?

10. What is moving you toward your goal?

11. What is getting in the way?

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
Step 3 of the GROW Model - What are your OPTIONS?

12. What different kind of options do you have to achieve your goal?

13. What else could you do?

14. What are the principal advantages and disadvantages of each option?

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
Step 4 of the GROW Model - What WILL you do?

15. Which options will you choose to act on?

16. When are you going to start each action?

17. How committed are you, on a scale of 1-10, to taking each of these actions?

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
18. If it is not a 10, what would make it a 10?

19. What will you commit to doing? (NOTE: It is also an option to do nothing and review at a later date.)

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
We have come to the end of today's #HRwithEM #TwitterSession.

My hope is that you would put the lesson to practice right away. If you do, and would like to share the outcome, I would be glad to read from you.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
I look forward to having you again next week, same day, same time!

Thank you for contributing to making this #TwitterSession a success.

@coachingperfor #selfcoaching #careeradvice #HRwithEM
