Using the Personal Vision Template
In using this template three areas require your attention and often,perseverance. The first is when establishing a goal, the second, askingwhat they will see, hear etc, and thirdly, asking for what purpose theclient wants to achieve the goal.
“Specifically what do you want to have happen?”
This seemingly innocent question is richly loaded. Few clients in theirinitial response will be specific, or identify something they actually wantto happen. Many will start with something they do NOT want. Take timewith your client to ensure that the goal is truly specific and somethingthey want to achieve:
Examples of non-specificQuestions to specifyMore money What is MORE money for you? How much,specifically?To be successful What is success for you?To quit smoking What is that you do want, specifically? (This is an
Happiness (anystate)What specifically would you like to achieve that willbring you happiness?
“What will you see, hear, feel, smell and taste?”
Rarely will your client have been asked this. Remind your client that theonly way we, as human beings, can ever know that we have achievedsomething is that our brains process data from our 5 senses. To help thecoach, these are the sort of things that may help your client:
