I am increasingly amazed by the number of coaching models out there, particularly the acronym based ones such as GROW or CIGAR. So I thought I would do a study on what coaching models are out there. I currently have 20 models and would be keen for anyone to share their knowledge of any models that they know or have used.
I have worked with the Eight Step Coaching model designed by Dr. Steven J. Stowell at the Center For Management and Organization Effectiveness (CMOE) http://www.cmoe.com/blog/the-8-step-coaching-model.htm. It's an off-putting title, and not an acromym, but a useful tool and framework for performance coaching. 8-skill coaching model might be a better title.
