Framework coaching creates a way for the coach to bring some expertise into the coaching. This helps the coach create a healthy way to market coaching.

1. The framework comes out of listening to a number of clients in a particular niche.

2. The framework may suggest the topic for the client.

3. The framework may be linear or topical.

4. The framework does not provide the solution but creates awareness around an issue critical to the client's niche.

5. The framework provides a plethora of true statements that can be shared as appropriate.

6. Framework coaching makes it easier to attract clients.

Chad and Brian give three answers to the question "How is Christian Coaching Different?"

1. It's not.

Coaching is a profession like cooking and plumbing. The basic skills are not any different than regular old coaching.

2. There are similarities and differences.

The basic skills are the same, but we bring the power of the Holy Spirit. We bring concepts like forgiveness and redemption. We have a different view of what makes a person human. We know there is a purpose to life.

3. It's totally different.

This is where people get into trouble calling what they do coaching. If it's totally different, it isn't coaching.

Chad and Brian continue their conversation about the Core Values Index and focus in part 2 on how to use the CVI.

When a client knows and understands his unique mixture of core values, it can help them navigate life with greater success.  Here are four ways we use CVI with clients.

First, with organizations, we use the CVI to help them hire for fit.   

Second, with teams, we use the CVI to help them know how to get the most of each member of the team.

Third, with individual clients who are looking for a career change or job shift the CVI can shed light on what sort of job they’d find most fulfilling and energizing.

Finally, with individual clients who want to be more fulfilled and energized in their current role.

Chad and Brian talk about their favorite assessment, the Core Values Index (CVI). The CVI is designed to help a person know how best they contribute.  It was originally designed to help companies and organizations hire people who were a great fit for a particular role, what they call “A Players.”  They found that beneath having the skills and the experience needed to do well in a job, that what really drives success is the extent to which the role allows a person to express their unique combination of core values. 

The CVI has two modes: free and complete.  The free version will tell you what your two primary core values are, for example: Builder/Innovator.  The complete will tell you the scores for each of the four values.  Each of the four has a score between 1 and 36.

How does coaching relate to each of these?
  1. Training - Can lead to coaching... Great content that needs put into practice.
  2. Leadership Development - Not as content specific as training. What's it take for you to be successful in this role as a leader? Naturally coaching, but may need some training. May need mentoring, facilitation, feedback.
  3. Organizational Development - Leader can only develop as far as org will allow it. Leader is creating positive change. Org accepts or pushes back. Coaching an entire org.
