The GROW model was developed in the United Kingdom in the late 1980s and has become one of the most established and successful coaching models in the world. GROW stands for
G – Goal = what is it that the coachee is looking to achieve
R – Reality (current reality)
O – Options (or obstacles)
W – Will (or way forward or what’s next?) = the delivery is in your hands.
Overarching the GROW model, Rosia Bay International Coaching also utilises the ACHIEVE model. Created to deep dive into options and hold coachees to account, the ACHIEVE model compliments the GROW model and delivers exceptional results when used correctly. ACHIEVE stands for:
A - Assessing the current situation. Like the Reality of Grow it digs deeper into what is in the moment.
C - Creative brainstorming. Open questions to support the coachee coming up with several options for consideration.
H - Honing goals. Identifying priorities and what things should be at the top of the coachees to-do list.
I - Initiating options. What behaviours or plans will get the coachees to their goals? What are the different paths that can be taken and pursued?
E - Evaluating options. Assessing each option and deciding on which option is the most appropriate to take toward a goal.
V - Valid action plan. Creating a strategic action plan which can be measured and assessed.
E - Encouraging momentum. Holding the coachee to account whilst supporting the right direction of travel.
