Goal – Reality – Options – Wrap-up

Adapted from The Tao of Coaching, Max Landsberg

"Nothing is more terrible than ignorance in action." ~ Johann Wolfgan von Goethe

Effective Coaching: GROW Model - Goal, Reality, Options, Wrap-up

Tips for Using the GROW Model

  • Use more 'ask' than 'tell'; elicit innovative ideas from your player – don't just try to show you are smart

  • Think creatively – not just systematically, invite radical ideas, particularly in the Options and Wrap-up steps

  • Illustrate, and check understanding, throughout by using specific examples – from your own and the player's experiences

  • In the wrap-up stage, get the player to say exactly what the action plan is.

What is GROW Model?

The GROW (Goal, Reality, Options, Wrap-up) model is one of the most common coaching tools. It enables the coach to structure a coaching conversation and deliver a meaningful result.

A Simple Four-Step Structure

The framework provides a simple four-step structure for a coaching session:

Step 1: Goal. Coach and player identify and agree on a number of clear and achievable goals (outcomes) for the discussion. This goal is not the longer-term objective that the player has. This desired outcome is to be achieved within the limits of the discussion.

Step 2: Reality. Both coach and player invite self-assessment and offer specific examples to illustrate their points and achieve the most accurate picture of the topic possible.

Step 3: Options. In the options stage the coach’s intention is to draw out a list of what all that is possible for the player to do without judgment and evaluation. Coach elicits suggestions from the player by asking effective questions and guides him/her towards making the right choices.

Step 4: Wrap-up. In this stage the coach’s intention is to gain commitment to action. Coach and player select the most appropriate options, commit to action, define the action plan, the next steps and a timeframe for their objectives and identify how to overcome obstacles.
