As we walk through the four quadrants of the Leading with Insight

model in more detail in the next four chapters, it is important to

keep the following key concepts in mind:

_ Relatively few clients engage in the full spectrum of development

described by the model. For several reasons, clients choose to

complete their coaching work at different stages in the model.

Some coaching engagements are cut off after a set period of

time, precluding clients from working their way through the

model. Clients may not be interested in developing their insight

or taking action beyond a certain level or may meet their coaching

goals without the development attained in later quadrants.

Other clients may attain a certain level of development and

then take a break from coaching to consolidate their gains

before returning to coaching at a later date, when they face a

new challenge.

Not all coaches have the capability to coach clients through

all four quadrants. In order for a coach to guide a client to

realize deeper levels of insight, the coach must have done the

personal development work to access his own intuition and

inspiration. As a result, some clients experiences are limited by

the capabilities of the coaches they are working with.

_ The development that is described by this model is woven into the

fabric of coaching relationships. The coaching that supports the

Leading with Insight model is accomplished on multiple

levels simultaneously. A coach who is skilled in transformational

coaching will consistently encourage clients to access

deeper levels of insight, often without the clients realizing that

this is happening. It is not necessary for clients to be aware

of this full range of development in order to benefit from it.

Coaches earn the right to guide their clients through this developmental

process by demonstrating repeatedly that they are

individuals of integrity and insight who can be trusted to do

this work.

_ Every client experiences the Leading with Insight model differently.

Coaching is, after all, a personalized development process

that engages every client in a unique way. Some clients enter

into coaching having done a fair amount of personal development

already and may breeze through the first quadrant (and

sometimes the second).Most clients will be receiving coaching

in more than one quadrant at a time, perhaps still working to

gain control of their schedules (Quadrant 1) while ironing out

roles and responsibilities with coworkers (Quadrant 2). Clients

who work in Quadrants 3 and 4 may cycle back through Quadrants

1 and 2 to deepen their learning, especially when they take

on new challenges such as a promotion or a new stretch opportunity.

They will work to shore up their ability to stay centered

and focused when the heat gets turned up to a higher degree

than they have experienced before.
