Take a Laser Coaching Approach
Later this month I’m attending the LeadHERship Conference in Wilmington, NC, a 3-day conference and workshop for women in the Parks and Recreation field. A friend and colleague from my business coaching certification program invited several women from our cohort to offer 30-minute laser coaching sessions to conference participants.
What is laser coaching? Laser coaching sessions are brief, one-time coaching sessions that get right to the point, address the primary concern, and create a plan to blow through obstacles.
Each session will include 20-25 minutes of laser coaching and a few minutes at the end for questions. To prepare for the session, we are asking participants to bring one area in which they’d like to receive coaching and be prepared to give a two-minute high-level overview.
Our objective is to assist our laser coaching clients to:
• Identify the problem
• Gain clarity on the situation
• Rise above any fears
• Create an initial action plan
• Develop an initial sense of a vision
• Create an accountability plan
I’m excited and honored to be a part of this conference. I’ll be coaching alongside esteemed women coaches who I respect. I am energized by the idea of participating in a conference put on by and for women. As an added bonus, I am looking forward to reconnecting and having quality time with my valued friends from my coaching cohort.
Planning for this laser coaching event has prompted some new thoughts: what if I were to treat more issues and problems that arise with a laser coaching approach? Instead of perseverating, having endless discussions, losing sleep, and making pros and cons lists, what if I first took a laser coaching approach? I could spend 30 minutes with my coach or a trusted colleague using the laser coaching format to get unstuck, gain clarity, and create action steps.
Laser coaching can be a healthy and productive way to approach many of life’s challenges. How might laser coaching work for you? Would it help you to briefly talk through an issue and get clear so you can move forward? Contact me if you’re interested in a laser coaching session. It could be a great jump-start to a solution, decision, or action plan.
