Guide and Best Practices

The GROW model is one of the most commonly used coaching models in the world. It helps structure coaching sessions. GROW stands for Goal Setting, Current Reality, Options (or Obstacles), and Will.

How to use the GROW model

  • To structure your coaching or mentoring session using the grow model, you need to start with establishing a goal for the session.
  • Understand the ultimate goals and the performance objectives when setting the goals. And make sure they are specific, measurable, accurate, realistic, and timely.
  • Examine and try to understand the current situation or the reality of the coachee. Assess the work done so far along with their effect and results.
  • At the same time identify the obstacles or blockers that is preventing the coachee from growing. Allow the coachee to do the assessment themselves before giving your own feedback on the situation.
  • Explore the options or the opportunities available to overcome the obstacles you have identified with the help of a brainstorming map. Evaluate the impact and effort of each alternative and select the best ones out of them.
  • Once you select an option, identify the actions your coachee needs to take to achieve his/her goal. Create an action plan accordingly.
  • Set a date to review the coachee’s progress. If the original plan is not working, you can make changes and improve it.
