How Does Coaching Enable Growth Mindset?
Coaching supports the process of nueroplasticity to happen in the brain of the coachee expanding their view of the landscape.
One of the most important components in coaching is powerful questioning that raises awareness, which enable them to go beyond the set neural pathways and explore outside the well trodden territories.
Questions that enable the coachees to imagine future perspectives and bring up 'outside in' point of view on their current reality or aspirational state of being helps them to take calculative risks and take actions towards their desired goals.
Let's imagine you are already there at your aspirational state. What do you see happening? How do you feel?
If there was a CCTV recording your performance up there, what would it show?
What barriers did you face?
How did you overcome them?
The impact of such questioning is that the coachee lives the moment from the future through a sensory experience and gets prepared for the actions they need to take and also facing / overcoming any barrier, preparing them to be more open, agile, adaptive, innovative and resilient through the journey!
