The VADES Coaching Process
Every person is different, so we can approach our work together as you need it. It can be a short-term one issue or decision you want to resolve, or it can be a longer-term complex goal you want to achieve with numerous accomplishments embedded within.
While I’m a “thought partner,” that usually entails exploring your thoughts rather than offering mine. Although if I have some specific expertise in that area, I’m happy to answer your questions and/ or provide resources. And I have been known to have opinions, if you care.
I developed the VADES organization change model for companies in transition, and have adapted it for more complex situations in individual and team coaching.
Typically, we begin by clarifying what Vision or goals you have, then confirm how they Align with your values and environment. Usually, you’d take an assessment to give us a foundation for discussion of your strengths and what’s important to you. Then we explore possibilities for Designing a plan and a way to Execute it to achieve your goals. Lastly, we would identify any obstacles to your Sustaining that goal and create any reward or habit system needed to support that continued accomplishment.
Although this methodology looks linear, there is always iteration in the process – maybe your goals shift as you gain clarity. Perhaps you recognize one of your values has more, or less, importance as we work together. Something in the environment could alter your situation. We can always modify and respond agilely to change. You are the ultimate decision maker in our coaching relationship.
