Coaching & Meta-Coaching


Todo mundo tem interesse em saber o que fazer para se tornar melhor, ou seja, como melhorar e ser o melhor que puderem. O coaching é a resposta.

Aplicar o coaching não significa dizer às pessoas o que fazer; mas sim ajudá-las a controlar as suas vidas; ajudá-las a avaliar o que estão fazendo num determinado momento levando em consideração seus objetivos, sonhos, valores e intenções. Isso lhes dá novas chances e conduz à mudança. O Coaching ajuda uma pessoa a ir além de seus bloqueios mentais, a ir além do que acreditava possível.

O Coaching funciona como uma parceria entre o coach e o cliente, ajuda a clarificar objetivos de forma a torná-los desafiadores e estimulantes, para que o cliente então alcance seus objetivos com a energia originária de seus valores mais profundos.

Os Coaches são especialmente treinados para trabalhar com pessoas dos mais diferentes estilos de vida, para auxiliá-las a atingirem suas metas, viverem seus valores e serem o melhor que puderem.″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no”>

Meta-Coaching – Coaching nível Meta: Coaching to Matrix 1

site oficial:

So as a Meta-Coach, frame selling as helping people make great decisions.

Michael Hall, PhD

 Meta-Coaching é uma metodologia de Coaching de ponta que transcende as abordagens tradicionais mais focadas em performance. O Meta-Coaching leva o coach e o cliente para níveis mais elevados de desenvolvimento e transformação. É por isso que chamamos de ‘meta’, que significa um nível acima. São nestes níveis mais elevados que mudanças profundas ocorrem naturalmente e facilmente. E o resultado é a capacidade de personalizar a transformação desejada.

Os principais modelos do Meta-Coaching são:

– Modelo da Matriz

– Modelo dos Eixos de Mudança

– Modelo da Autorrealização

– Matriz da Autorrealização

– Quadrantes da Autorrealização

– Modelos de Facilitação

– Modelo de Benchmarking

FITTING THE MODELS OF NEURO-SEMANTICS TOGETHER I decided to make explicit the system of Neuro-Semantics after getting questions in my Meta Master Practitioner training: “How do the pieces of Neuro-Semantics fit together? How do the models interface with each other?” The following sorts out the models of Neuro-Semantics in terms of: Processes, Patterns and Models and I end it with how it all fits together within the larger context of Self-Actualization Psychology. Processes: First of all – State. A state is a general description of the combination of thinking, feeling, body movement, degree of muscle tension etc, We are always in a state and that state effects what we think, feel, and how we act and speak. We get information about the world outside our head through our eyes, ears, nose, tounge and touch/sense. We re-present this information through mental imagery, sounds or voices, tension and other kinds of feelings in our body and we also store information in smell and taste. We edit the movies (a metaphorical description of the VAKOG-information) by how we relate to it in space (near/far, above/under/in front of/behind, inside our outside the images etc) and we give meaning to that relationship to the “movie”. In Neuro-Semantics this is called Meta-modalities or Sub-Modalities. As we represent the world in sequences of images/sounds/feeling/smell/taste we called that strategies.

We use Language as a way to code the world symbolically and metaphorically (all language is metaphorical). Language is correlating with our representations – “internal senses”, the meta-modalities, and we use language to give meaning and even though we use the same words they mean different things depending to how we make meaning of the symbols through what we see, hear/say and feel about them. The Language patterns or language models are all different applications of the same process, Language. Then we give Meaning to things through language. We make sense of the world by explaining it to ourselves linguistically by what something “is” or adapt our “map” (which of course is a metaphoric description of how we connect things) to what we learn from parents, family, friends, school (which has the purpose of making us productive citizens), work, media etc. We can give meaning that explain, that give us freedom… and toxic meaning that limit us and can make us sick both physically and mentally. We embody meaning and when we tell ourselves that the meanings we have given to things is real and true we form beliefs. We think/emote about our thinking and emoting in endless processes. As this means that we go meta (experience it from outside, above) we have states about states called Meta-States. When we give meanings to what´s important that makes it valuable and we value it… our values. When we value things, people, behaviors, concepts, communities etc. we feel about it, and explain it to ourselves as important. If someone “violate” our values (that is, do something different than) we feel strong emotions about it and act in some way. The next process is Intention. We want stuff, we want to learn, we want to do and achieve, we want to be a part of, change etc. This is the process of asking and answering Why? We learn to ask why as very small children and most of us never stop asking why. We have small whys and really big whys. It is the driving force of human evolution, science, technology and society. Pre-supposition: Every behavior has a positive intention for the person doing it. The above are the basic psychological processes going on inside us. There are also chemical, biological, neurological processes that interact with the psychological processes, and that is

adds the complexity to the human experience. Therefore our states and how we experience the world and make “sense” or meaning of it is affected by hormones, chemicals, environment and more and that will in turn affect the meanings etc. That´s why one of the key pre-suppositions in NLP and Neuro-Semantics is that Mind and Body is one system… because it is. Patterns: Our brains make lots and lots of patterns of stuff because they are lazy and want to take shortcuts to save “time”. That´s why we develop habits and habituate responses to different stimulis (things happening outside our heads). We have given the sequence of physical behaviors, inner reactions, feelings, images, self-talk and meaning-making a meaning that it is effective and useful, otherwise we wouldn’t do it. Many times the habits were formed at a young age when we actually didn’t know everything or even that much and therefore the habits are less than useful at an older age. Sometimes we learn habits like being afraid, or thinking in a childish way, or over-reacting to a small stimuli and getting really pissed off etc. A phobia is a habituated sequence of responses to a very specific stimuli or set of stimulus. This is why we use patterns in NLP and Neuro-Semantics. It is ways of thinking that is effective and functional in doing something different and achieving some kind of desired state. One example is the NLP “phobia cure” or the more descriptive name of “Movie rewind pattern” as it is called in Neuro-Semantics, the pattern is teaching the brain how to react in a different way to the same stimuli, by first changing the meaning of the stimuli by running the “old movie” backwards and giving it new meaning through circus music etc. and thus giving the brain more possible response pathways and more flexibility. Patterns are basically more effective strategies that we train our brains with by going through the process by ourselves or with a guide. In NLP the patterns are more linear (at least in how they are usually taught at trainings) and utilize physiology and VAK in different ways and in Neuro-Semantics the patterns are more non-linear as the “change” happens at meta-levels when we meta-state, which means that we ascribe new meanings, states and ways of looking at whatever we are doing at the primary level of state and VAK. We teach the brain to ascribe new meaning, to update the thinking to that of an adult and to make new choices and most of all, becoming more flexible in to what and how the meanings are ascribed. That is why NLP can be described as learning to “Run your own brain”. We use the patterns train (or teach) our brains how to create effective states of flow, of learning, of being present, of listening, for training, for coaching, accelerate learning, develop self-esteem,

“Meta-Programs” are those programs in our eyes or minds by which we filter what we see in the world. As perceptual filters, our meta-programs identify what we sort for, pay attention to, look for, “see,” etc.” L. Michael Hall – Perceptual Genius patterns for self-leadership, flow-states, patterns for resilience and much more. The patterns all train the brain to develop new habituated responses and more flexibility and to “actualize excellence” in ourselves and others.
Models in Neuro-Semantics: The Meta-States Model: This is the modeling of the Self-reflexive consciousness, which basically means that we think and feel about our thoughts and feelings, in endless loops. Have you ever begun your day by waking up in a bad mood, grumbling? And then thought about what a bad mood you are in, and maybe stub your toe or burnt your toast, and then that set the tone for the rest of the day, and everybody you met was an asshole, because of the mood you were in and the looping of your thoughts about that day? Have you ever awakened in a good mood, and everything went your way, and people smiled at you and you said to yourself, “what a great day”, and that mood got bigger and brighter? That is the looping of your thoughts and the thinking about your thinking in layer upon layer. “The Meta-States Model in Neuro-Semantics is the model that enable you to appreciate, understand and work with your reflexivity. This dynamic, systemic process is what distinguishes you from all the animals and makes our kind of consciousness so special, so incredibly powerful, so sacred and so dangerous. Without the ability to recognize and manage the reflexivity, you can get yourself in a spin that can diminish you as a human being and even make you a candidate for suicide. The way you respond to your responses can become so toxic, so perditious, and so morbid that you become your own worst enemy as you just sit and “think”.” Dr L. Michael Hall – Neuro-Semantics – Actualizing Meaning & Performance. The Meta-Programs Model: Meta-Programs are our habituated response and thinking patterns in a certain context. When we go “meta” to our thoughts and feelings, we create frames of mind. When we repeat the same kind of meta-stating often enough they habituate (as our brains like patterns) and they become “programs” (a metaphor for habits). Suddenly we just respond without having to think because of these contextual “programs”. Dr L. Michael Hall and Bob Bodenhamer identified 60 Meta-Programs in the book “Figuring Out People” and sorted them in four categories: Cognitive, Emotive, Choosing and Conceptual/Semantic (Meta Meta-Programs). Meta-Programs are not personality traits, they are behaviors and responses. “Because meta-programs describe one of the hidden processes or dynamic structures in how we attend things, focus our perceptions, and filter the lenses of our mental sight—detecting, recognizing, and using meta-programs offers a yellow-brick road into human reality. Otherwise, people seem mysterious, strange, weird, unfathomable, and stubborn. Knowing how to work with meta-programs enables us to create rapport at a higher or meta level, and to gain trust and credibility with more elegance and speed.” Dr L. Michael Hall – Perceptual Genius Training Manual (2005)

Self-Actualization Psychology is the higher framework around Neuro-Semantics based on the work of Abraham Maslow. The basic (animal) needs: We all have survival needs (food, drink, warmth, sleep etc.), we all have safety needs (Self-confidence, stability, predictability etc.), we all have social needs (family, work, groups, acceptance etc.), and we all have self needs (having a voice, honor, respect, dignity, self-worth etc.). These needs are all affected by the meanings and intentions we ascribe to them. If those meanings are toxic or distorted (too much meaning or to little meaning to function effectively) the need can be distorted and neurotic and we become stressed and sick. When we gratify the basic needs effectively they go away until the next time the need arise, like food or sleep. If the basic needs are not gratified they fill our senses and “scream” until they are met and that is what keeps us from the self-actualizing needs. The Self-Actualizing (fully human) needs / Meta needs: These needs become more available when the basic needs are met. In order to fully live as self-actualizing humans the basic needs have to be gratified every day in different degrees. Examples of Self-Actualizing needs are: Meaningfulness – a sense of significance, Wisdom needs – multiple and rich perspectives, Justice needs – to make things right, Cognitive needs – to know, understand and learn, Contribution needs – to make a difference, the need to choose your own unique way of life, Aesthetic needs – to see, enjoy and create beauty, etc. In Neuro-Semantics we have four different trainings in Self-Actualization: Unleashing Vitality (the basic needs, the meta-needs and peeking skills), Unleashing Potentials (meaning making, the Crucible, and the Flow of Self-Actualization), Unleashing Creativity (creative thinking, problem defining and solving, solutions and innovations), Unleashing Leadership (self-actualizing leaders and companies). Purpose: An overarching psychological framework describing the processes and theory in Self-Actualization and Human development. It explores the “bright side” of human psychology rather than the “sick side”. Application: It´s applicable in many areas such as Leadership, Business, Coaching, Training, Personal Development, Health and much more.

Tools and Models for Self-Actualization Self-Actualisation Assessment Scale: We use this tool to explore how we cope with our basic physical, emotional and psychological needs. When we find out that we are not coping or handling a need, we can explore why that is so.
Meaning – Performance Model: A simple model that becomes complex when we fill it with content. It brings the four power zones into two axels. The Meaning axel of thinking (meaning making) and emoting and the Performance axel of saying and doing. Depending on how much and what kind of meaning we perform at lower or higher levels.

The Self-Actualization Quadrants: This model use the meaning-performance axes applied to coaching and self-actualization. When you actualize your highest and best (self-actualization) you synergize meaning and performance.
The Matrix Model combines Cognitive Psychology and Developmental Psychology. We have three process matrices, State (the grounding matrix), Meaning and Intention. Each one of the content matrices are filled with states (we are always in a state), meaning (we always make meaning about what something means to us) and intention (we always have a reason for performing our internal and external behaviors). The content matrices are: Self (who you are and the meanings you give about yourself, worth etc.), Power (skills, behaviors, coping, learning, problem solving etc.), Others (what you think and emote about other people), Time (how you relate to time), and the World (meanings about the world, the context, etc.). Purpose: A systemic model for exploring how a person has ascribed meaning and intention in specific contexts. Application: This model is used as a systemic modeling tool, as a coaching tool, a tool for working with groups and teams and much more.

Meta Questions: We use Meta Questions to explore and “flush out” or elicit how a person has attributed meanings about meanings about something (the matrix of meanings). Meta-States, as higher states, govern, modify, modulate, control, drive, and organize our everyday primary states. We call this 80 “logical levels” (104 is presented in the book “Neuro-Semantics”) and use the metaphor of a diamond of consciousness where each facet is an opening into the matrix. The Meta questions come in categories like Meaning, Beliefs, Frame/Reference, Permission, Taboo, Feelings, Thoughts, Appreciation, Value, Decision, Intention, Outcome, Expectation, Rules, Categories. Purpose: Since meaning is “coded” linguistically, we use meta-questions to explore how a person has attributed meanings in combination with emotional charge and muscle tensions in the body. Application: We use Meta Questions in coaching, trainings, when running patterns etc. It´s a simple tool to flush out, explore and find “frames of meaning” about something. Through the process of self-reflexive consciousness we have meanings about meanings, frames about frames and that creates the “matrix” or the “map”. We use Meta Questions both as a tool to explore meaning and as a tool to “build a new matrix” as we do in several patterns on the APG-training.
Language Models “Meaning is coded in language. While you can construct meaning in the simplest way through the senses – VAKOG representations for coding meaning, most meaning is coded linguistically. So we use language to detect meaning. Use the distinctions and features of language to notice the words, sentences and linguistic patterns used to construct a linkage between an event out in the world and words that classify, categorize and define.” L. Michael Hall – Neuro-Semantics – Actualizing Meaning & Performance 2011 The MindLines Model is a model for doing linguistic conversational changework on the meaning or belief level. MindLines work on meanings (what something is) and cause-effect statements (this leads to or causes that). We start with De-Framing the statement into what we can see and hear about the EB (External Behavior, or Stimuli) and the IS (Internal State, Meanings, Emotions) and how they are related = (means, or is) or -> (leads to, causes). When we have the formula clear we can play with the different patterns and directions to find out how that affects the “frame”. If we find toxic meaning in the matrix, meaning that makes us feel “bad”, act un-ecologically, thinking that is limiting our potentials we can use MindLines to expand or break apart the “frame” of the meaning to make it more flexible. We do the same with effective frames or beliefs that we want to be even more flexible and expanded to make it more

powerful. To do that we have 26 language patterns or rather frames for asking questions and 7 directions to send a brain. So first we explore the meaning matrix with Meta Questions and then we can play with the frame to make it more flexible with MindLines. Purpose: To make a persons’ thinking about some meaning or belief more flexible and open for more information. Application: MindLines can be used in Training, Coaching, Sales, Therapy, and Rhetoric etc. It is implicit in the Meta-Coaching framework and is a powerful tool for conversational changework. The Meta-Model is a linguistic toolset for asking questions and exploring the logic in a persons’ map, how things are connected, how they are framed, what kind of information is missing or can be expanded upon. It´s a tool to explore the “psycho-logics” of a persons’ map of the world and usually the “change”(or rather the enriching of the “map”) happens when we explore what is outside (missing information, according to who, in refrence to what etc.) and inside (the meanings, mind reads etc. that are stated) a persons’ map or model. The Meta-Model is often referenced as being a tool for specificity even though that is the most basic application of it. The Milton Model is a linguistic toolset often used in hypnosis, sales, marketing, political speeches etc. The Milton Model use the process of vagueness and lack of specificity to create a frame that the other person can fill with its’ own content: images, meanings etc. Example: President Obama is famous for the phrase “Change we can believe in” that doesn’t reference anything on the outside so the people filled it with their own content. The backside is that his popularity plummeted when the change he talked about mis-matched the content the people had projected onto the phrase. The Neuro-Semantic Precision Template. This model evolved from the Well Formed Outcome questions and Michaels’ choice to put it in a funnel to illustrate the process. The intention is to funnel or drill down to specifics and then we can fill it with different kinds of questions for different applications. In the Unleashing Creativity training it is applied to a Well Formed Problem, a Well Formed Solution, a Well Formed Innovation with different questions for different purposes. All of them include the basic structure of Subject (What?), Context (Where?), Processes (How?) and Checks (Ecology, Evidence and more). This model can be applied as the framework for a Business Model, a Change Model and much more.

We have two change Models in Neuro-Semantics. The Axes of Change Model: Developed by Michelle Duval and Dr. Michael Hall this model utilizes four mechanisms of change for self-actualizing people and companies. The Axes of change uses four meta-programs to offer a generative model of change. Excluded from the model is the therapeutic change characteristics of resistance and relapse. First is the direction and motivation meta-program: Toward / Away from. What are you motivated to move toward and what do you want to move away from? The response meta-program: Reflective, Inactive, Active. Reflective is about thinking things through, planning. Active is the decision based on the information in the plan. The frame of reference meta-program: Internal / External. Where is your attention focusing – on your internal frames or on external frames? The relationship meta-program: Sameness / Difference. When a change begins to occur, what does your attention go to – the things that are similar to the change you had designed or what´s different from your ideal? The Crucible – A place of Creation Fires for Testing, Melting and Transforming. “Merely creating meaning is not enough. It’s the quality of the meanings that counts. If we make sick, toxic, and dis-empowering meanings, we will be the worse. Or if we create trivial, bland, or conventional meanings, we will experience no inner drive for adventure. We need to create the kind of meanings that empower us to thrive, enjoy, and love. This demands a crucible.” From Unleashing Potentials, Dr L. Michael Hall The Crucible is a hypnotic pattern for building a place of safety within where you can have an encounter with your thoughts, needs, emotions, biology etc. A Well-Formed Crucible consists of six elements: * A metaphorical place for a person to just be with thoughts, emotionons, needs and biology or an experience. * Self- Esteem – Unconditional Positive Regards. * Ruthless Honesty – Getting to the heart of things, expressing what is without judgment, telling the truth. * Witnessing – just observing, noticing, neutral, non-judgmental awareness. * Acceptance – Welcoming, embracing, holding the space. * Appreciation – Discovering / creating enriched meanings and value. Compassion.

Self-Actualization Psychology is the larger framework around Neuro-Semantics. First of all, what is Self-Actualization and why is it important? Taken from the Training manual for “Unleashing Vitality” is Dr. Michael Halls’ definition of Self-Actualization: “What is Self-Actualization? What do we mean when we use this term in Neuro-Semantics? * Making your potentials real or actual. * Becoming all you can become. * Developing as a human being so that you become a “fully functioning person.” * Hearing your inner voice of authenticity and living true to the higher being values. * Experiencing your full humanness and full individuality. * Psychological health and wholeness. * Learning to be the best version of you. * Living at the top level of the hierarchy of needs. * The synergy between meaning and performance. * Doing what you must do. Self-Actualization is a function of two mechanisms—meaning and performance. Selfactualizing people perform more competently at higher levels and do so because it they find it meaningfully significant. The richness of meaning empowers their ability to take effective action and become masterful.” It´s all about coping with your basic needs! The main reason that the majority of people on this planet are not self-actualizing is because they are stuck on some need and are busy taking care of themselves, to cope, to survive instead of thrive. So one of the purpose with all the different trainings in NS, like the APG, is to give people the tools to be more of their own true selves. The APG for example can be framed as a developmental training to “correct” the things that you should or could have learned while growing up, to clear the psychological path in your meaning matrix and make you more ready to be fully present and experience flow. The Self-Actualizing human have “gotten over themselves”, have taken care of the basic needs and have freed up all that energy and tension to do other things, to do what they want to do, what they must do! It´s beyond survival, that is taken care of, it´s a path to explore, to be, to give of themselves to a cause or higher purpose. The Meta-Coach training is training coaches to become self-actualization coaches, to facilitate the process of self-actualization in their clients through the coaching relationship, so that they can find their own path to greatness.

Modelo de Benchmarking

O modelo de Benchmarking é o método de avaliação para se alcançar a certificação Meta-Coaching. É um modelo de avaliação comportamental com base sensorial sem interferência de julgamento moral. Através do benchmarking avaliamos o desempenho do coach em 7 habilidades especificas (Apoio, Escuta, Questionamento, Metaquestionamento, Indução de estados, dar e receber Feedback).

How to score the benchmarks –  um dos diferenciais do Meta-coaching!

Gerenciamento de Estados

Objeto do estado – nos estados primários(medo, raiva, alegria, tristeza, calma, etc) o objeto é normalmente algo fora de você e além do seu sistema nervoso.

Consciência de estado – consciência dos estados e dos fatores que os determinam , porque os estados se habituam, iso é, eles fogem de percepção consciente. Usamos ferramentas para aumentar a consciência dos estados.

Acesso/indução de estado – por memória e imaginação, para relembrar e/ou criar um estado (Lembre-se do tempo em que…)

Alterar estados – os estados não permanecem os mesmos, mudam sempre. Você tem métodos para alterar seus estados?

Intensificar e amplificar estados – avalie cada estado em termos de intensidade, pois nem todo estado tem o mesmo nível de intensidade!

Interrupção do estado – interrompa todo e qualquer estado mental-corporal-emocional bruscamente; quando um estado é intenso e disfuncional demais em seus efeitos, uma interrupção nos permite parar ou evitar que ele cause dano.

Dependência do estado – estados governam aprendizagem, memória percepção, comportamento, comunicação, etc. A dependência de estado é uma tendência de expectativa conceitual – determina o que vemos e ouvimos!!

Contrastes de estados – compare um estado com outro para obter uma compreensão perspicaz sobre a “diferença que faz a diferença”. O que explica a diferença? Ela ocorre num nível primário ou meta-nível? As configurações de estados vêm em todos os tamanhos e formas. Simplesmente porque você acessou um estado de pensamento-ação/fisiologia, você não irá sempre acessá-lo fazendo o mesmo.

Ancoragem de estados – estabelecer gatilho conectando ao estado. Âncoras funcionam como ferramentas de condicionamento pavloviano para a administração dos estados e dependem de especificidade, tempo, pureza.Esperar que seja alcançado o pico da experiência e então ligue um gatilho a ela. Testando para ver se o gatilho dispara o estado. Se sim, está estabelecida a âncora.

Emoções e estados – uma emoção é uma combinação de sensações e avaliações de linguagem na forma de palavras sobre o cinestésico; as emoções consistem de julgamentos avaliativos, crenças, significados, valores. Como estados, nossas emoções registram nossas sensações corporais a respeito dos significados ou avaliações e assim nos ajudam a sentir a energia dos significados. São a diferença entre nosso modelo do mundo e nossa experiência do mundo. A diferença entre os dois é a emoção.

Estender/conter estados – podemos tanto estender quanto conter os estados, construir limites e barreiras em tornos de um estado para desconectá-lo de outras coisas.

Expressão/enquadramento – expressões do estado (pensar, sentir, falar, agir) direcionam nossa atenção para o corpo e o mundo lá fora quando tomamos consciência do que sentimos e queremos fazer/dizer. Enquadramento é a significância do estado, a estrutura cognitiva do estado que realmente cria o estado. Com essas quatro expressões do estados construímos e formatamos um número infinito de enquadramento `a medida que atribuímos significado a seja lá o que estivermos experimentando. Essas quatro expressões, então, governam o estado. Podemos usar essas facetas para estabelecer enquadramentos como estruturas de referência para tempo, história, crenças, valores, etc.

gatilho  —- — significado —- emoção — reação/conduta

não podemos   o resto sim,  podemos mudar

sim, podemos mudar:  significado, emoção, reação/conduta

If I wanted to be mischievous, I would even go so far as to say, Coaching is all about framing.  And yet if I said that, it would not be too far off.  After all, as we say repeatedly in Neuro-Semantics, The person is never the problem, the frame is the problem.  That might be one frame that you might want to get used to setting in every coaching session.  It’s one I always use and I’m always ready to repeat it whenever a client seems to be engaging in any kind of self-abuse, self-attack, or self-incrimination.  Behavior like that implies that the person must be thinking that he is the problem.  And because that is notwhere I want a client to go, I’m going to immediately interrupt and set the frame — “the person is not the problem.”

Now what I’ve just written is the reason, the structure, and the way to frame.  You frame when your client’s automatic frame, the frame that she brings into the coaching session, is activated and creating problems for her or could be activated.  It is when something could be mis-understood that you need to set a frame.  The thing that can be mis-understood could be an event, an experience, a word, an idea— something to which the client then frames it in such a way that now he has two problems— whatever the thing is and his frame about it.

Because clients often come into the session assuming that “it is bad to cry or to get emotion,” as soon as that happens, set a more enhancing frame.

“Thank you for that response!  It means that we are getting close to something that is really significant to you.  Thank you for being so open and courageous as to present it.”

Here the thing is the tearing up or the activation of the body in getting emotional (sniffing, nervous activity, change in breathing, etc.).  To that thingyou then set a frame— a way of understanding it, a way of interpreting it, meanings about it.  “It means you are being open.”  “It means we are getting close to a coachable moment.”  “It means you are courageous.”

Once you have done that, now direct or redirect the person in a way so that you can make good use of that experience.

“Tell me, what kind of tears are these?  Are these tears of awareness, recognition, sadness, discovery, relief, or what?”

“If these are tears of discovery, what are you now discovering?  And how will that make a difference in your future?

“If these are tears of sadness due to a sense of loss, what have you loss?  And do you yet know how you will replace that loss with something else?”

All of this is framing and framing and framing.  Are you leading?  You bet!  And ideally, you are leading to where your client has told you that he wants to go.  “We lead in coaching?”  Of course, you pace, pace, pace and then lead.  You enter into your client’s world and experience — match what you see and hear and you do that so that as you co-create with your client a desired outcome, you facilitate your client to get to that outcome.

A caveat: Framing is not only about how you get started.  It’s true that we have a full page in the ACMC Training Manual about some recommended pre-frames that you can set, but that is only the beginning.  It is not even the most important or powerful aspect of framing.  More critical is the framing that occurs in the coaching conversation in real time as it is needed with your client.  And to do that requires that you, as a Meta-Coach, have the ability to hear frames.

Do you?  Can you hear frames as they are presented moment by moment by your clients?  To learn to do this, plant some frame-detecting questions in your mind and/or write them as part of your notes so that you remind yourself to deliberately practice this.

What has to be true in the background of understanding or believing for my client to say this or to experience this?

What would I guess my client is assuming to be true and not questioning?

What must be going on in the back of my client’s mind but not being said?

By recognizing that your client is operating from some frame enables you to focus on detecting and flushing out that frame whether it is a belief frame, decision frame, understanding frame, prohibition frame, etc.  When you do that, you will be asking those oh-so-easy-to-forget-to-ask meta-questions.

Let me check, what do you believe about adopting a disciplined approach to X?

Have you somewhere in your past made a decision that you will not allow yourself to be embarrassed or to step out of your comfort zone?

 Meta-Questions enable you to flush out your client’s frames.  So if you are not asking meta-questions, you are missing the very structures that are determining your client’s experiences.  Without meta-questions, you will be as blind as to the true causes of what your client is going through as will be the client.  By asking meta-questions you are able to get to the heart of things— the meanings that are governing your client’s experiences.  Ready to step up to Meta-Coaching— then search for frames, ask meta-questions, and flush out the operational frames that’s driving how your client is feeling, talking, and experiencing.
