1. Initial Face-to-Face Meeting

  • To determine if coaching is appropriate for the individual
  • If coaching is appropriate, to determine who the coach should be
  • To plan for the Information Gathering stage

2. Objective Information Gathering – Determining the Method(s)

  • 360 Degree Assessment – Emotional Intelligence (EQ) or Leadership
  • The Company’s Performance Evaluation System
  • Prevue Assessment
  • Personality Profile

4. Coaching Procedures

  • Length of the initial contract period

Adapted from the work and lectures of Julio Olalla of the Newfield Network and from A Theory of Everything by Ken Wilber. Most coaching begins with the behaviors of the individual and the practices and results possible (Upper right hand quadrant). Those behaviors are affected by the systems, structures, and culture of the organization or community that the individual lives in (Lower right hand quadrant).

Almost always coaching has its greater impact on the internal life of the individual – the emotions, values and intentions (Upper left hand quadrant) and the culture, background, history, and moral or social rules the individual was raised in or is in at the moment (Lower left hand quadrant).
