The Coaching Young People For Success Approach

The Coaching Young People For Success Modules and leader training are structured around a two stage coaching approach based on our signature POWER Coaching Model© and The GOAL Coaching Conversation©.

 

Stage 1. The P.O.W.E.R Coaching Model©

The POWER Coaching Model combines strategies from evidenced based Coaching, Positive Psychology and Hope Theory that are proven to enhance the self-awareness, self belief and the motivation young people need to achieve greater wellbeing and flourish in all areas of their life. 

The five P.O.W.E.R Coaching steps guides young people through a transformational process, where they will  connect to their strengths and design an inspiring and hope filled life, career or school performance pathway plan that matches their vision, strengths, values and aspirations. 

The coaching plans then provide a guide to focus and fast track action and learning in all future coach, peer or parent lead conversations, to assist young people achieve positive and lasting behaviour change.

Young people explore who they are and create a Who am I? Strengths based personal profile that will assist them to imagine possibilities and design an inspiring vision for their life, career and study for their future that matches who they are and what is important to them.

Young people will identify their short, medium and long term goals, review their current life satisfaction in eight key areas,  identify the top priority areas they want to work on and then be assisted to create an achievable clear plan of what they need to do to get there.

Young people will realistically assess the costs and benefits of striving towards their goals in order to assist them build their motivation and promote commitment.

Young people will identify the emotional intelligence skills they have and the skills they need to strengthen in order to be able to overcome obstacles and move ahead.

Young people will design S.M.A.R.T steps they can take straight away so they can experience success and build their sense of agency and belief that their goals are achievable.

Stage 2. The GOAL Coaching Conversation©

 

The GOAL Coaching Conversation is a framework that assists the coach lead powerful future-focused coaching conversations to keep young people focused and motivated to strive towards their goals and support them to strengthen the emotional skills they need to be successful overtime.

Their vision, goals and action steps can all be REVIEWED and EVALUATED (RE-GOAL) during every coaching session in order to maintain motivation, aid learning and assist young people take further meaningful action. All positive behaviour change can be tracked and celebrated along the way with the support of the coach.
