About the Book
Change (and adapting to it) needs to become an ingrained habit and this is a simple way to do so with any coaching technique.
Coaching is becoming widely acknowledged and people realize just how effective it can be.
Coaches use various types of tools and methods for life coaching, personal coaching, career coaching and many more…after all, Coaching is about getting the very best out of someone and enabling them to make decisions that will improve their life.
This book is a tool, a booster to use with all of these different coaching methods. It's a booster for coaching results, to allow every coach in every field and level of coaching, to take the coaching to a new level, suitable for dealing with a rapidly changing environment.
The world around us is changing, and fast. It is becoming more and more complicated and the pace of technological change is one of the highest in recorded history. Naturally, this new reality creates new challenges. The goals that we want to achieve, for example, can be ever-changing – and therefore seem unachievable.
To face these challenges, we need strategies that will help us regain a feeling of control over our goals, and help us reach them. We need ideas that will enable us grow and flourish, while at the same time help us face the uncertainties of change.
The need to develop new strategies and ideas, and adapt to changes, is at the heart of many coaching processes. Why? Because as coaches, we recognize our coachees' universal need to deal with change. They need to understand what needs to be changed, and they need to learn how to both preserve their newfound behavior so that it doesn't dissipate within a week or two, and how to easily change again when needed.
Based on Lean and Agile methods, our Coaching Booster teaches people how to see change as a habit, and embrace change as a way of life. This book will help people leave their comfort zone, turn dealing with new changes into a habit, and help them change our their habits effectively and quickly, all while demonstrating how it can be repeated in the future.
Lean and Agile methods boost productivity, promote innovation and have been tested (and proven) in real-life situations. They have achieved better results than any other method so far. The Booster also introduces a framework that helps you coach easier, working together with your coachees towards the goals they have developed themselves.
The Booster is written to be simple and intuitive, showing you how to simplify the complex environment of change in which we live. This makes it easier for us to set goals and establish a vision, as well as cope with changes.
It's not that the questions we ask, as coaches, are not suitable anymore; it's not that the goals and value we help the customer realize have lost their relevance; it’s the way we manage the flow that leads to achieving these goals that has become unsuitable for rapidly changing environments.
Anyone can use it, anyone can take the framework suggested, follow a few simple principles and apply it to any kind of coaching method.
This book was written out of our experience as Agile coaches, dealing with rapidly changing environments. All we did is merely collect these amazing tools and present them here for your use.
