What really does this competency of Designing actions mean?

Designing actions

“Designing actions” is about the ability to co-create opportunities for ongoing learning and for taking new actions that will most effectively lead to agreed-upon coaching results. This can be achieved through brainstorming and assisting coachees to define actions that will enable them to demonstrate, practice, and deepen new learning.

Challenging the coachee’s assumptions, helping them to evaluate options, focus on alternative ideas and solutions, and explore specific concerns and opportunities vital to coaching goals is equally important whilst designing action plans for them.

After helping clients create ecological goals it is necessary for the coachee to also ensure specific steps to take them from where they are to move to desired goals. In order to understand these steps, a coach helps the coachee explore and evaluate different ways, options, ideas, and solutions.

In a nutshell, this competency acts like a sounding board in your journey to reach the desired goal by helping you create a very personalised, unique plan of action with no potential pitfalls or minimal scope of errors. The process is facilitated by highly effective modalities, hypnotic processes, and chunking-down techniques.

Why do we call this competency transformational?

Creating a full-proof plan of action is the most vital step in the entire process of coaching. All the other competencies add up to support this one. A lot of people make plans just randomly or by surfing the internet and believe me most of them are not even close to manifestation.

The SOFT SEA Coaching framework takes you through a series of methodological steps like brainstorming and mind mapping processes, post which we help you resonate and pin down the most important ecological goal for your system. It not only opens up avenues for learning, unlearning & relearning but also the crisp line of questioning urges the clients to challenge their current assumptions.

After the client identifies the goal, the process of designing action starts, here we integrate all our processes with hypnotherapy, NLP, and other cognitive processes for better and quicker results.

We call this competency transformational because we let you become your desired self in manifestation, thus helping coaches create an impact on self & society and work for the greater good.

My story about how this competency has helped me in my coaching practice

When I look back, I realise how knowing about designing actions is not equal to actually being able to practice it.

As a concept it looks easy but when you don’t have the road map to it. Mastering and effectively practising it could be a hard nut to crack.

Earlier, I would too browse through the internet and design my plan of action but to my bad, I would always skip out on something and then miserably fail in reaching my outcome.

At one point in time, it started taking away my self-confidence which made things even worse. until I came across ICHARS, things started to take a turn for good.

Not only did I achieve all the goals I set for myself but also gained my confidence back. Can’t stress enough, ICHARS truly is a master in this realm.

How does the Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching Program help you become independent of a particular issue and effectively create a master plan to navigate your path to success?

Unlike other coaching programs, Cognitive hypnotic coaching does not just focus on working with the client’s conscious mind but also with the client’s unconscious mind. Because YOUR GROWTH is paramount to us.

The process starts with collecting as much relevant information as we can, while simultaneously recovering breaches like generalisation, distortions & deletions, etc. Post more complex processes are run to chunk down the exact meat which in turn is used to create the final blueprint.

Since the Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching program is a seamless integration of the SOFT SEA® framework, along with major psychological approaches along with Hypnosis, NLP, mindfulness, and metaphors, it enables coaches to help clients enhance & develop a full proof skill-set that’ll help them sail through most of the storms. 

While the coachee takes all the important calls and decisions, the coach however will always have his back and overlook the entire process. The onus is on the coach to make sure that their coachees stay focused and bring them back in case they digress from the planned path of course.

Various techniques covered under the Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching model are-

  • Timeline 
  • Changing the current thought pattern with the help of When-Then statements.
  • Exploring the unknown using meta-model & various language patterns
  • 5 love languages 
  • Eye accessing cues 
  • Multiple intelligences. 
  • Matching & mirroring; pace & lead to build an instant rapport.
  • Visual, auditory & kinaesthetic to understand clients dominant learning system, so as to entice them in their preferred way of learning
  • Eye assessing cues
  • Soft Sea

ICHARS’ proprietary SOFT SEA® coaching framework, focuses extensively on generating an outcome, future, and the plan of action, understanding reasons for achieving an outcome, and also addressing the reasons & hindrances in the process using our probing tools & techniques.

In addition to all this, while you are undergoing your Cognitive Hypnotic Coaching training, you also learn to develop and sustain positive resourceful states for yourself, as a coach. These resourceful states can help you enhance your focus, concentration, thus refining your skills.
