    IntroducingThe Meta-Coach Training SystemCoach Training for Life, Executive and Business Coaches

    Developed by Dr. L Michael Hall and Michelle Duval, the Meta Coach Training System is grounded inthe cognitive behavioural sciences of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Neuro Semantics(NS). The incorporation of NLP as a coaching tool allows Meta Coaching to be a powerful coachingmethodology that transcends traditional Performance Coaching; taking Coach and client to higherlevels of Developmental and Transformational Coaching. That is why it is called 'meta' meaning ahigher level. At these levels profound change occurs naturally and easily. The result is success andtransformation.

    The Meta-Coach Training System@THE META-COACH SYSTEMEverything You Always Wanted to KnowAbout Meta-CoachingBut Didn't Know Who to Ask

    Yes, when you first look at the Meta-Coach System it can be confusing. That's because it is rich,complex, layered, has numerous steps and stages, is the most systematic approach to the field ofcoaching and so can easily overwhelm and confuse. Since that is not our design, let me see if I cande-mystify the Meta-Coach System and answer common questions we receive.The NameThe term "meta" (pronounced "met" as in "I met a fascinating coach the other day") is a Greek termfor "above, higher, and about." In coaching, it refers to coaching at a higher level. It refers to notcoaching the content of a person's expertise or area, but to the processes and structures that governthat content-to the invisible processes in the back of the mind that governs our thinking andemoting.A sports coach may not have the expertise of the player being coached. Michael Jordan's coachundoubtedly cannot play like Michael Jordan. Don't expect Tiger Woods' coach to play better golfthan Tiger. Their expertise is not in the content of the game. The expertise of a great coachconcerns the form, structure, and process of how the client works or operates.In Meta-Coaching, the coach works with the invisible structures behind the scene that controls theclient's expertise. The Meta-Coach works with beliefs, perceptual filters (called meta-programs),thinking patterns (called cognitive schemas), and self-reflexive consciousness (called meta-states).All of these frames of mind that the client brings to the session operate "in the back of the mind" andthese are the frames that the Meta-Coach can detect, identify, and address. And doing so often finds"the switch" as the leverage point for transformative change.The StructureMeta-Coach is based on several models that address the seven components or elements of"coaching" itself. That is, if you were to ask, "What is coaching?" the answer lies in seven factors thatmake up the discipline and field of coaching. What are these seven components?

    Coaching as a discipline is-1) Communication - a conversation like none other that focuses exclusive on a client's bestdreams and hopes for a more compelling future.2) Unconscious back-of-the-mind communication that elicits the mental and emotionalframes which governs the client's experience that gets to the heart of things.3) Generative change - that takes the client to his or her next level of development and/oreven transformation.

    4) The implementation of the change - so that the solution, new performance, or differencecan be actualized in the world, made real, and the progress that makes can then bemeasured.5) Systemic thinking and working - so that the conversation and change is holistic andhealthy for every aspect of the client's life.

    The Meta-Coach Training System@6) The self-actualizing of one's highest and best potentials - so that the client moves to hisor her next level of development and success and unleashes potentials.7) The facilitation of all of these dynamic processes - a conversation that enables the clientto find, access, and mobilize his or her best resources for making the change real.

    If this is what coaching is then what are the models that can enable a Coach to effectively coach?We asked that question at the beginning when we first designed Meta-Coaching and we came upwith the following models. These models inform and guide a coach in the actual practice ofcoaching.Coaching is:1) Communication2) Reflexive unconscious communication3) Generative change for transformation4) Implementation and Measurement5) Working Systemically6) Self-Actualization7) Facilitation of multiple processes

    Models for a Meta-Coach for Effective Coaching1) The NLP Communication Model2) The Meta-States Model of Reflexivity3) The Axes of Change; The Crucible4) Benchmarking Model; Mind-to-Muscle Pattern5) The Matrix Model6) Self-Actualization Quadrants7)The Facilitation Model
