The Leading with Insight model is a developmental model of

coaching that delivers transformational change for individuals and

organizations. It looks at coaching from the perspective of the

client’s experience and focuses on the personal development that

underlies the coaching relationship. The Leading with Insight model

is designed to serve as a foundational roadmap for transformational

coaching. On the surface, each coaching engagement looks different.

One client may be working on transitioning from being a

manager to taking on a leadership role, while another is focused on

expanding his leadership style to incorporate a more collaborative

approach to working with others. The Leading with Insight model

shows how personal development is connected to increasingly

deeper levels of insight and how together they support increasingly

more complex levels of change for clients. The Leading with Insight

model illuminates the developmental work that happens below the

surface of transformational coaching engagements and, in doing so,

helps us to better understand some of the elements that make coaching

such a powerful personal development process.

Let’s turn our attention to the Leading with Insight model that is

presented in Figure 2.1. The Leading with Insight model has four

quadrants. Each quadrant explores a deeper level of client development

and supports the realization of increasingly complex coaching

goals. The four quadrants are:

Quadrant 1: Finding Focus

This first quadrant focuses on personal effectiveness and enabling

clients to find their focus and get physically centered.

Quadrant 2: Building Bridges

This quadrant supports clients in enhancing the effectiveness of

interpersonal relationships through the development of emotional

insight.

Quadrant 3: Creating Alignment

In this quadrant clients focus on achieving goals involving teams,

groups and organizations supported by the development of their

intuitive insight.

Quadrant 4: Original Action

In this quadrant clients are inspired to achieve goals they may not

even have imagined when they first began their coaching work.

Most clients enter coaching through Quadrant 1. The development

in each quadrant serves as the foundation for the next. Not all

clients will progress through all of the quadrants. The factors that

impact how far a client progresses through the four quadrants are

discussed at the end of this chapter.
