Provocative coaching - sometimes change requires a push...
Often with coaching, clients try to avoid responsibility. The more you tell them that they are capable of change, the louder their inner voices tell them they are not. Provocative coaching challenges this. It puts fun and laughter back into your change work.
Frank Farrelly (1931-2013) first called it 'provoke therapy', then provocative therapy, and said "provoking change is not just about playing the devil’s advocate, it’s about the effective use of challenge, warmth and humour in equal measure".
In this one-day workshop, you will learn;
- how the approach differs and when to use it
- stacking states for a powerful push
- pushing by pulling
- challenging your client's first statement
- exaggerate to absurdity
- playing devil’s advocate
- 'what is the problem?'
- moving beyond your client's limits
This one-day workshop is ideal for those interested in overcoming limitations and sometimes frustrated with the 'yes but' people.
