In this episode, Kim discusses Prochasta and DiClemeti's Stages of Change model, originally developed for addictions, this model is extremely helpful in coaching, too. While counselors work with clients in all stages, coaches should only ethically work with clients from the preparation stage on. It is an important skill to determine where your clients are in their readiness to change. This information will help and it also informs good coaching strategies in each stage. If you are interested in a board certified coach (BCC) credential, Academy of Choice is a BCC-approved program.
