The Coaching Game is a powerful, experiential tool for working with both groups and one on one. It’s easily integratable into any process and adaptable to any coaching style or approach. It’s appropriate for use by personal and life coaches, therapists, group facilitators, business and organizational consultants, teachers, counselors, instructors, social workers and anyone else who are interested in expanding their toolkits and introducing a creative, intuitive dimension into their work.
The Coaching Game is both an icebreaker and a breakthrough- maker that generates open, intimate communication, in addition to being a tool for deep processes that uncover hidden layers and bypass logic.
The Coaching Game activates both sides of the brain; working with the game stimulates the full range of thoughts, sensations, and emotions that enable the client to observe his or her point of view, expand it, and see issues being worked on from new angles and vantage points.
In addition, The Coaching Game enables the professional to “telescope” processes and touch essential points precisely yet gently, allowing deeper and more subtle work to happen more directly.
The Coaching Game is inviting and welcoming, and transmits this in its extraordinary design and presentation. It invariably elicits an enthusiastic response, interest, and cooperation in those who play it. This reduces confrontational behavior and catalyzes client's readiness to dig in and share. The target audiences with which The Coaching Game can be used ranges from young children to army generals, and everyone in between!
The Coaching Game has become an international standard in the coaching world, and is used by professionals in nearly all of the larger coaching training institutes, as well as accredited institutions of higher learning. In addition, many of our workshops and activities Have been recognized by the International Coach Federation.
The Coaching Game contains: • 65 Coaching Cards, on each of which appears a topic depicted by a visual point of view • A 165-page, full-color Coaching Book, each two-page spread of which is dedicated to a topic treated from a 360 “surround- look” depicted by a story (folk tale, or true story); several relevant quotes (deliberately contradictory, so as to stimulate discussion and broaden viewpoints); queries (both philosophical and concrete coaching queries that aid our understanding of how a particular issue relates to the client’s everyday life); and associative thoughts on the topic. • A fabric Quadrant Layout Chart emblazoned with four coaching processes, enabling exploration of a specific issue that the client is dealing with (By the way, every month we send out new downloadable Process Charts for members of our Newsletter Club… it’s also easy to invent your own.) • A Coaching Ticket Notepad on which you can write down the client’s insights gained from the process, as well as his or her Action Plan. Each coaching ticket is an anchor enabling learning, action and insight to deepen between sessions
The Coaching Game is a priceless tool for anyone who guides or leads others through a personal or professional development process. Above all, it’s a very special gift to yourself.
