Quadrant 1 focuses on personal effectiveness, the ability to make

good choices regarding the management and focus of time and

energy. The coaching outcomes in this quadrant are most typically

tactical improvements in personal management. Clients prioritize

their time more effectively, they clean up and clear out old projects

and old habits that are getting in their way, and they begin to bring

their personal and professional lives back into some kind of dynamic

equilibrium.

Examples of Quadrant 1 coaching goals include the following:

_ Become more organized

_ Prioritize appropriately

_ Manage stress

_ Set clear personal goals

_ Attain goals on time

_ Create a stronger professional presence

_ Become centered

Clients who will work predominantly in Quadrant 1 tend to enter

coaching feeling unorganized, overwhelmed, stressed, and/or unfocused.

Regardless of the symptoms they are describing, there is a

fundamental need to address some old habits of thinking and

getting work done that have probably been successful in the past,

but are now impeding the person’s abilities to function at the level

required to be satisfied and successful in the current position. Both

satisfaction and success are important. One of the more common

habits that coaches see is the tendency for clients to throw themselves

completely into their work until they accomplish their goals.

This approach often enables people to be successful, but as their

success is rewarded with more and more responsibility, they find

themselves working harder and harder, and they eventually burn

out; they are increasingly successful but with lower levels of personal

satisfaction. The first quadrant is the space where clients bring their

personal work habits back into alignment with what matters most

to them.
