The Certified Flourishing Coaching Model for Transformational C.H.A.N.G.E.™

  1. Create Safety and Build Trust – Nothing positive or transformational occurs until people feel safe. Everything begins when coaches partner with individuals to create safety and build trust. When people feel safe and trust is nurtured, we are on the path to mental and emotional wellbeing. Here, we support creating an environment of safety and trust. 
  1. Hear and Listen With Heart and Mind – A large part of creating safety and building trust is hearing and listening, with both heart and mind. As individuals are seen, heard, and understood, they feel valued and supported, and can be invited to think and respond differently. Here, we support hearing and listening with both heart and mind.
  1. Align – When individuals feel safe and build trust, and feel seen, heard and understood, they can begin to move into the high performance that occurs when they are internally aligned. Just as a vehicle runs more smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, we all perform better when our thoughts, feelings, emotions, goals, and values are congruent. Here, we support a proactive approach that cultivates consistent Alignment leading to high performance.
  1. Navigate With Vision and Goals – Feeling safety and trust, along with feeling valued and aligned set the table for strategic conversations around employee vision, goal-setting, and proactive performance management leading to high levels of employees satisfaction and productivity. Here we support individuals to deepen personal and professional Vision, while setting healthy and appropriate Goals.
  1. Growth Mindset – A Growth Mindset is the best safeguard against challenges and adversity in career growth and development. An individual with a growth mindset sees challenges and obstacles as a natural part of learning. Individuals with growth mindsets are more likely to succeed because they are more motivated to learn, have a desire for hard work, are less discouraged by difficulty, and use more effective strategies for coping with stress and challenges that arise along the way. Here we support individuals to cultivate a Growth Mindset.
  1. Execution and Accountability – People thrive with accountability, and we can’t flourish without it. Results and accountability are intimately linked. Accountability and growth measurement will come with quarterly FLQs as individuals are able to track and celebrate progress, supported by their Wellness Coach. Here we support individual and team Accountability, which fosters better relationships, improves happiness, helps team members clarify and accept expectations, and eliminates surprises.
