The Rescue vs Responsibility Model of Coaching by Coach Mentor Steven Seek
When a client turns to a coach for help, one of several patterns emerges:
· The client retains ownership of his/her challenge and uses the coach as a sounding board to clear her thinking and set some goals
· The client attempts to offload her anxiety onto the coach, but the coach refuses to take responsibility for the problem
· The client offloads her anxiety onto the coach, and the coach works harder than the client to solve the client’s situation
If you have ever found yourself working harder than your client on his/her issue, then you probably know what it is like to take on more responsibility than you should. Putting in more effort than your client does little to build the client’s ability to work successfully on their issues in the working triangle of a client – client’s challenge – coach.
This workshop outlines different paths that coaches can take while working within a client – client’s challenge – coach trianglular model. We will explore the Rescue Model and the Client Responsibility Model in coaching based on the principles of Mary Beth O’Neill’s book, Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart: A Systems Approach to Engaging Leaders with Their Challenges.
Those attending will get to:
· Understand what is a client-client’s challenge-coach triangle.
· Understand what is a Rescue Model of coaching
· Understand what is a Client Responsibility of coaching
· Differentiate between the two coaching models
– light refreshment will be provided
