Behaviour Bitesize Blog: 6.4 Engaging

This series explores each of the identified coaching behaviours alongside the Principles of Great Coaching. In this blog, UK Coaching’s Craig Blain and Jordan Harry, a memory and speed reading coach, explore different ways of thinking and reaching solutions, and how you could encourage the people you coach to try a new approach to problems they're struggling with

Presenting a clear and understandable rationale for the activities and sessions you have planned for those taking part is key when building motivation and momentum for you and the people you coach. When people understand what is being asked of them and have the tools and confidence available to overcome challenges set, great strides forwards can be made. 

However, when we face adversity, in whatever form, it can be hard to find a way forwards or a solution to the problem. If not addressed, this can lead to drops in motivation and more. As the coach, you are perceived at times to be the person who should always be able to see the answer or find a solution.

This might not always be the case, but being positioned as the coach (physically and psychologically) may offer some opportunities to see things more clearly from time to time.  

We asked Jordan Harry, a memory and speed reading coach who has given a TEDx talk that has been viewed by 1.6 million people, about how the way we think can help us to maintain clarity for ourselves and those we coach.

“Thinking is something we do all day, every day,” Jordan explains.
