Based on the popular GROW model, the canvas helps you to individually or in pairs coach each other and articulate (or doodle) your Goal, Reality, Options and Way forward.
You don’t need to be a professional coach to use the canvas.
SOLO – If you are using the Canvas on your own, set up some time aside (eg 30min) so you can focus on thinking it through with an easy pace. Start with the Challenge and move through Goal, Reality, Options and finish with Way Forward.
DUO – Print a copy of the canvas for each or have a digital copy available to share. Use in the same way as in Solo mode, but work through one participant at a time. The other participant can act as a coach to listen and provide support.
SMALL GROUPS – We recommend using the Peer Coaching Canvas. It’s similar to this with some adjusted vocabulary and instructions for using in meetings.
