These playing-card sized cards have ten of each kind of GROW question, (Goals, Reality, Opportunity and Will).
The cards have many uses.
Novice coaches * They are perfect for developing the coaching skills of novice coaches, the GROW structure is a useful guide.
* They are a great reminder of the open questions that we use. Every question leads the coachee into deep exploration.
* The cards are endlessly mixable. OK, they can be mixed in only ten thousand combinations, but that's enough to coach once every day for 30 years.
Self-coaching * 'They are very helpful for coaching yourself, when your coach colleagues are too busy. Just write down your topic, deal yourself four cards, and get ready to take yourself on a journey of exploration.
Demonstrations * They are a powerful tool in demonstrating the benefits of coaching. I have used them many times in demonstrations where I have preselected 4 cards (one of each type) and asked only those questions in the demonstration. In some of the demonstrations the coachees have answered in silence for themselves, on topics they have secretly chosen, and they still get great value from the coaching demonstration.
