- Some differences between Goals based Coaching and “traditional life coaching”:

“Executives should seek coaching when they feel that a change in behavior can make a difference
in their own success or the success of their team or organization.”
-Harvard Business Report

All people and systems are dynamic -changing throughout time.

For people to grow they have to do different things, change certain habits and that means a change in their behavior. Without that nothing changes.

Growth is a type of change and a lifelong personal (micro) and organizational (macro) process. Growth occurs by adding new content and organizing old content. Whatever the driving force, when companies are attempting to grow and develop and keep pace with a changing marketplace, any successful outcome requires an ongoing process that alters the way people interact with the market, perform their jobs and relate to each other. Organizations must also ensure that individual and organizational behavior are aligned with business strategy. These specific behavioral requirements are the capabilities and skill sets required to achieve individual positional and overall corporate success.

Goals based coaching goes well beyond the “accountability” model, which are basics of follow-up and working off a checklist to make sure the client was a good boy and got some work done.  Today's coaching involves goals setting, action planning and relying on complete commitment and motivation to move forward. Modern day life and stresses also requires goals coaching to also employ validated behavioral change techniques to insure that goals are achieved and changes sustained. These include strategies to assess and manage thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Goals based Coaching implies an 'Ultra Being' lifestyle and having a clear purpose.  It differs from outdated, deficit-based models of coaching, that situate coaching in a performance counseling paradigm. It is not a manipulative technique to increase short term performance and productivity.

Traditional coaching models typically focus on extrinsic motivational factors, such as demands of the workplace and performance rewards. Behavior based coaching explores the individual’s values and works on the premise that real motivation and change are situated in the individual’s intrinsic motivation.

Traditional coaching models pay little attention to unconscious forces within the individual and the organization. Goal Getting(tm) based coaching highlights the importance of unconscious elements and offers guidelines for coaches to explore and work with resistance and psychological defense mechanisms.

Unlike many traditional coaching models, goals coaching does not explain an individual’s behavior purely in relation to her or his personality profile. Instead, we recognize and assess environmental factors such as culture, values and organizational and team dynamics. Our particular brand of coaching acknowledges that organizations are socially constructed and it provides guidelines for coaches to explore culture and to recognize and manage forces of resistance.
