The Dr. R.O.B.I.N. Coaching Method is an acronym summarizing an approach to a coaching conversation. It is helpful for clients who work with me to give some thoughts to the five questions that go with each letter …
R — Results | What result do you wish to achieve from this conversation? From our coaching relationship?
O — Options | What are some of your options? Think of at least three. Changing your mind / beliefs about what is happening is always one of the options.
B — Barriers | What are the barriers to acting on each of those options?
I — Insights | What ideas, insights, inspirational role models do you have to work through this issue?
N — Next Steps | What are the next steps you will take to move forward? To whom, and how will you communicate that you’ve taken those steps. Who will be your accountability partner?
