Coaching with Goal Setting

Coaching can add real value but coaching on goal setting is invaluable.  Not only can you learn a lot about yourself during a goal setting session, but you can also learn about your natural limits and passions.

Goal Setting:

  • Can be used to address a wide range of areas, with a focus on a specific point during any coaching session
  • Is a positive results focused vehicle which the person being coached, the coaching client, benefits tremendously through:
    • Clarified thinking,
    • Aided questioning,
    • Guided strategy developing
    • And focused definition.

  • Is not counselling.
    • If it becomes clear to the coach that the client would benefit from counselling (a clinical intervention) to deal with emotional issues, then he stops the coaching session.
      He then makes the necessary recommendation to the client
  • Is not mentoring.
    • As the coach focuses on helping the client identifying problems and only the solutions that they themselves come up with
  • Requires skill in carrying out the coaching conversations and discussions
  • Provides the client with feedback on their strengths and weaknesses
  • Provides a base for the client to develop their existing skills

It is important that you get your coaching with goal setting right.  Coaching will help you to get to your goals quicker than you can on your own.  Goal Setting is an essential step in that process.

Does the Coach need to be a Subject Matter Expert?

When it comes to subject level knowledge there are two schools of thought.

One school says that it is greatly beneficial if the coach has subject knowledge of the client and is able to help the client with this knowledge.

The other school says it does not matter if the coach does not have this knowledge. Not having this knowledge helps the coach to develop and maintain the necessary detachment.

He establishes objectivity, in engaging with you, the client, and adding value.

I have examples of the coach has prompting the client to question their own direction and identifying an innovative solution.  This supports the second school of thought.

There is a real risk of where the coach has in depth subject  knowledge, he/she feels an urge to share that knowledge with the client.

This type of behaviour is much more clearly towards mentoring than it is towards coaching.  That is not to say it does not have value, it is just that there is a time and place for both.

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is where the mentor listens to the mentee’s problems, gives them the benefit of his own experience and what has worked for him.

The Mentor helps the mentee is arriving at a way forward by giving guidance.

Coaching is different.  The coach focuses the questioning on helping the coachee to explore options for themselves, without being guided.  He helps the coachee by giving coaching with goal setting
