Coaches Use many Models to plan their steps and one of these models is the Grow model.
How the GROW Model Works
The GROW Model is an acronym standing for (G)oals, (R)eality, (O)ptions and (W)ill, highlighting the four key steps in the implementation of the GROW Model. By working through these four stages, the GROW Model raises an individual’s awareness and understanding of:
their own aspirations;
their current situation and beliefs;
the possibilities and resources open to them; and
the actions they want to take to achieve their personal and professional goals.
It doesn’t matter whether coaching is used in sport, life or business, the good coach believes that individuals always have the answer to their own problems. They just need help to unlock them.
