You can choose this solution if you have coaching clients. During the coach the coach process we focus on three areas. First, we analyse you as a coach. We check your communication, the tools you picked, your interpretations, intervention approach and your internal (intrapsychic) processes. Second, we analyse your coachee's responses, their challenges, their thoughts, feelings and behavior. Third, we analyse your coaching session how it was designed, its elements, your transactions with the client, the input and the output as well as its effectiveness.
While on the journey you and I are using various techniques closely related to the three areas mentioned above. By using them you can understand your situation and the possible next steps better. We co-create a picture, also called "diagnosis", about your situation with the applied TA methodology. Based on this picture we define the desired picture. After this both the whole journey and its milestones will be crystallized before our eyes. Soon after this, we can typically familiarize ourselves with your invisible "rubber bands" that try holding you back from becoming a great coach. This is where we apply the 3P Method (see this post at my blog). This gives us two more focus areas: (1) CONTENTS and (2) TIMING. The contents define the areas we need to focus on. They can be something like the patterns of your communication (transactions) with key figures of your life, your early decisions, beliefs, games, positions on the drama triangle, life positions, your drivers or your stroke economy. Knowing what we need to work on, we can more realistically estimate the time needed for the change on those areas. The open communication on the journey makes sure we clearly see each other's roles and responsibilities so we cannot blame or save the other person or feel like a victim because of the hidden messages of any conversation. And you will not do this with your clients either. The goal of the supervision is not to solve your clients' problems. Its goal is to help you make more autonomous decisions when coaching and build better relationships with our clients to be able to work more effectively.
We might need to meet once, three times but it might require fifteen times. A typical session can be summarized in five steps. STEP ONE: We discuss the results of the previously agreed tasks you completed related to your own coaching sessions, your experiences, feedbacks from clients and your overall experiences. STEP TWO: We have a quick look at what challenges you are having right now in coaching. They can be related to your private life. They might influence your achievements and results related to your coaching process. STEP THREE: working on the content. This can be the previously discussed one (e.g. transactions, stroke economy or your self-limiting inner talk between your different ego states) or a new content. STEP FOUR: We have a look at the current picture of the content ("diagnosis") and the desired one. We define the concrete steps, techniques or methods that help you move towards the desired situation. This is what we will discuss during the next session at step one. STEP FIVE: finally we summarize and evaluate the session and define the next steps, homework and the resources you can use.
