chapter  3
The Flow of Coaching
Pages 7

This chapter will serve as an overview of the whole coaching processdwhat I’m calling the flow of coaching (see Figure 3.1). The presentation is linear and our experiences, conversations, and lives are not. Consequently, the flow is usually not as simple or direct as is shown in the text. The stages are really buoys, which indicate for trained observers where they are on their journey through the bay, and can indicate to the coach how the work is progressing. The point of the chapter is to identify the indicators and provide a framework in which a coach can think and design.
