CogniLibro is a site for Vertical Development, not for standard coaching practices, such as 1st, 2nd and 3rd Generation coaching. We don't use tools such as the GROW model, as they are not useful once you understand CDT. Instead, we begin with an Awareness Quotient profile in order to deconstruct your thinking into your unique combination of 50 Cognitive Intentions to determine your habituated thinking patterns, as these lead to your habituated behaviours. It is these behaviours that propel you to seek out a coach, but they are not the starting point for your development!
When you think about your thinking right now, how are you constructing “you”? What is your Intention? How Aware are you of your Intention in the moment? Does this Awareness offer you Choices in your Responses, or are you simply acting out of habit?
Using the brand new Coaching 2.0 framework from Constructed Development Theory, we know that a client seldom presents with a problem that is what they think it is, of either utility or agency. Instead, we address the way the client constructs their thinking, as their level of Dynamic Intelligence is the limit at which they can construct the problem. From here, we uncover their construction, and work with that. When we eventually circle back to the initial problem, we often find that it has changed by virtue of our client's higher Dynamic Intelligence, which means they are now constructing the problem differently.
