Action planning is often a key factor in a coachee achieving successful change. However, what about when a coachee’s behaviour does not change despite well-defined action plans? Is it a lack of commitment or will-power, or is there something else happening…?
Changing behaviour requires more than strong intentions and an iron-will. Both helpful and unhelpful behaviours are underpinned by strong routines and habits. This Learning Lab will help to identify the times where there is a need to go beyond action planning. It will discuss and apply a systematic approach to supporting coachees achieve the lasting behaviour change they desire.
What you will learn
Through a blend of live demonstrations, input, small group discussions and exercises, you will:
- Identify when there is a need to go beyond action planning;
- Develop approaches to help identify cues that lead to unwanted behaviours;
- Build an understanding of how craving and expectations become the route of least resistance; and how to disrupt these to enable change;
- Establish how routines and habits become default responses and how to successfully replace them with new desired behaviours;
- Understand the role of reward in ensuring behaviours become new routines and habits.
The session will be facilitated by Gordon Ryan. Gordon is a Chartered Occupational Psychologist and Executive Coach with almost 25 years’ experience in coaching, leadership development, organisational culture and assessment. Our host will be Julia Philpott, Head of Coaching at Management Futures.
