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.
