Version 2.1 of The Simple Coaching Model, an Update

I have updated the Simple Coaching Model to have the following changed:
  • More generic naming: The last stage of Coaching has been renamed from to "Feedback" to "Reflect". This has been done since there might be situations that a feedback is not appropriate. A reflection is a more general term. As an example in cases that you want to coach a person on performance, a reflection on accountability is much better word than feedback.
  • Simpler model: I have moved away from using a gear wheel symbol to a more flow based figure. The gear wheel can be interpreted as ups and downs that needs to fill each other, or adding more complexity,
  • New set of sample Questions: I have added another set of sample questions. The first set can be used when you are coaching a person (as in life coaching or personal coaching. The second set is more toward the performance coaching (as in coaching on a specific subject). 

Introduction to Simple Coaching Model

The Simple Coaching Model is developed by Shahin Sheidaei. It's version 1.0 has been presented to the public on January 2017. The goal of this model is to making coaching-like conversations easier, help people to get better at coaching and ultimately to have a very simple model to rely on for their coaching conversations. The current version of the model is v2.0.
