What Does it Mean to Be a

What does it mean to be a "thinking partner"?

As a coach I certainly had my ideas about what I thought it meant. However after recently learning about "The Thinking Environment", Im thrilled to say my understanding is expanding and deepening.

So I am over the moon to have the chance to learn more about it and to actually hear it demonstrated in a full "thinking partner" coaching session with Jane Adshead-Grant MCC. Jane is also an accredited coach, facilitator and teacher with Time to Think.

Time to Think was founded by Nancy Kline who created and pioneered the development of The Thinking Environment. Nancy says: 

"The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first.

The quality of our thinking depends on the way we treat each other while we are thinking.

Time To Think has identified ten behaviours that generate the finest independent thinking. We call them the Ten Components of a Thinking Environment®.

In the presence of these ten behaviours people think for themselves with rigour, imagination, courage and grace."

Where Is Coaching Needed Most?

Do you ever find yourself thinking "Oh how I wish 'they' could get some coaching"? I admit I do!

Two of my biggest wishes are for all government leaders/politicians and medical professionals to receive and learn coaching! What a different world this would be for us individually and collectively, right?

For example, imagine having a visit with a doctor or dealing with a health-care system who saw you as whole, creative and resourceful. They were totally present with you, wanted to know what you thought, felt and desired and so asked you powerful questions. Then really listened to what you had to say and worked with you to achieve your health and well-being goals.

Wow... is it a pipe-dream? Nope, Im thrilled to say its not! There are coaches out there doing great things and making real inroads in this area. You may be one of them and bless you if you are!

I can tell you for sure that our guest this month, health & well-being lifestyle Master Coach Dr. Tim Cline is one of those coaches

To give you just two examples- after 10 years of full-time coaching, Tim returned to Pittsburgh to build a comprehensive suite of evidence-based lifestyle interventions and an ICHWC-approved health coach training program for one of the nation’s largest, fully-integrated health care systems. 

Read more about Tim and his teleclass call. He will be demonstrating his health and well-being coaching mastery in a real world session with a client he has never met and who is not in the coaching profession. After the session he will breakdown his process and answer our questions.

Please join us Monday April 29, 12-1pm EDT!

Coaching Mastery Qualitative Tip #3

Coaching Mastery Tip #3

If you are ready to move beyond your current comfort zones and reach for a new level of mastery in your coaching, consider these qualitative tips for guidance. This is the 3rd in a 13 part mini blog series that will share Thirteen Coaching Mastery Qualitative Tips. I hope you enjoy them! – Fran Fisher MCC
Check out tip #2 here.

#3 of 13

Easy FLOW

The feeling is a relaxed flow of connection in the partnership. Coach is client-focused, honoring their pace and tone. Your attention is fully connected, dancing with the client. Whether it’s a waltz or a salsa or a tango, coach and client are harmonizing in flow.

Avoid providing unnecessary distractions, such as:

  • Opinions, analysis
  • Unsolicited suggestions
  • Approval judgments (“I think that is a good idea,” versus “How do you feel about that idea?”)
  • Habitual non-verbal interruptions to the client’s speaking (yeah, yup, uh huh, OK)

Inquiry: What drives my need to speak?
