Provocative Coaching: Making Things Better by Making Them Worse

Wed, May 24 | 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM | A311/A312

Do you ever consider just speaking your mind during a coaching session? Do you hold your tongue because you think you might offend? Surprisingly, the skills of challenging and "teasing" can take you several steps up as a coach, trainer, or facilitator. The purpose of provocative coaching is to provoke and then counteract, guiding behavior in the right direction, so that clients use their own power to deal with their problem. Key ingredients are humor, challenge, and good contact, all at the same time! Provocative techniques grab the unconscious brain so that it can leave automatic pilot and start to change patterns, which can only happen when people are truly committed. Provocative coaching enables this. In this session case studies will be shared and you will practice in small groups and experience the benefits of this unique approach.

Application on the Job:

  • Learn how provocative coaching can help break through your clients' ineffective patterns. 
  • Discover how the principles and steps of provocative coaching will help your client make more progress. 
  • Practice and apply three disruptive techniques in your coaching.
