Coaching in a Hurry- 4 Simple Steps

It's possible to be an effective 'Coach in a Hurry'. This will help the Coachee right now when they really need it!

1. Get the Client to DESCRIBE IN BRIEF what the ISSUE is/area of the issue
2. Get them to decide what a meaningful OUTCOME might look like
3. As a Coach, check if the problem is about a particular SITUATION, or THE COACHEE themselves or OTHER PEOPLE and focus on the main one
4. Brainstorm possible new OPTIONS and agree IMMEDIATE next ACTIONS

This can often be done inside 15 minutes and if it does not resolve the full issue, it often instills enough CONFIDENCE to help the Coachee in the moment.
