Intentional change theory. Reprinted from Boyatzis (2008, p. 304)…. | Download Scientific Diagram
The only really successful outcome for a coachee happens when they make a commitment to change. Richard Boyatzis describes intentional change as a series of five discoveries, driven by the interchange of positive and negative emotions. This theory is the foundation of our coaching practice.
Discovery 1 – who I want to be: the ideal me.
Discover 2 – who I am right now: the real me. What are my strengths, to build upon? What are the gaps between the real me and the person I want to be?
Discover 3 – what I need to do to become the ideal me: determining my learning agenda
Discover 4 – practicing and experimenting to create new habits and new behavior.
Discovery 5 – developing resonant relationships, to build a strong support base as I move through each discovery.
