The GROW Model / Coaching Framework

There is a coaching model from partnership coaching, called "GROW" involving a set of exploring questions:
G - GOALS - what do we want to accomplish / discuss
R - REALITY - what is happening now
O - OPTIONS - what, why, what else...
W - WHAT'S NEXT - call to action.
It's a good framework to guide coach-coachee interactions.

GROW Coaching Model to Guide Coach-Coachee Interactions

John Whitmore's book 'Coaching for Performance: GROWing Human Potential and Purpose - The Principles and Practice of Coaching and Leadership, 4th Edition' goes into more detail about each area.

The GROW Coaching Approach

When I'm explaining coaching to my colleagues, I also often refer to the GROW model. Here is the idea:
G - GOALS - first of all you or ideally the coachee recaps the goals to be accomplished,
R - RESULTS - you then review where you are versus these goals, in other words what are the results so far.
O - OPTIONS - then it's time to discuss the options: what can you do to get back on track?, to solve this problem? And so on.
W - WILL - And finally where the coachee, help by the coach has decided for a specific option, you then discuss with him/her his will to do it. Are you committed to this option? Do you really believe in it? Are you sure it will help you...
Big advantage of this model is its simplicity.
