Structure of a coaching session – the 3W’s

You can follow the following simple guide to the structure of a coaching session.

Where are you now?

  • Establish a starting point – use the Life Areas Assessment or a version of it to help.
  • What are the issues/areas for development from where
    you are now?
  • Why are you where you are now – what have you
    done/not done?
  • Analyze the information without self judgment or blame – this is the starting point not an opportunity to beat yourself up!

What do you want? or Where do you want to be?

  • Identify the things you want and/or need.
  • Don’t restrict yourself by getting caught up with the ‘how’ – just be free to explore all the things you would like if you could have anything you wished.
  • Start to form specific needs and wants from your ideas and prioritize the areas.
  • Consider whether what you want is positive and right for you and others around you – you can use the well formed outcome document.

What are you going to do about it?

  • Decide which goals you’re going to work towards and complete sun diagrams to establish the action points to achieve the goals.
  • Use the goal setting processes (much more about this in the book)
  • Commit to make the desired changes, and review and action the goals daily.


Coaching is enabling the coachee to do this for themselves, facilitating and supporting them through the process.
Coaching is not doing this for the coachee, giving them the answers and instructing them.
