» The Axes of Change Model

As the very first non-therapeutic model for facilitating change in the field of Coaching, the Axes of Change Model is becoming recognized by many academic institutions as the most cutting edge development in the field to date. Developed by Hall and Duval in 2003, based on Self-Actualizing premises and the naturally occurring change process of healthy people, this simple yet revolutionary model gives you as a Coach 9 integral skills for Coaching change and 9 critical roles to play as a change agent.

» The Neuro-Semantic Benchmarking Model

Where is your client in their process of change? How do you know? How much more skill development do you need before you will have the coaching skills of a Master? By what criteria are you measuring this? What is your benchmark for success? The NS model for benchmarking your skill development accelerates your learning, seeking to close the elusive knowing-doing-gap. This exhilarating model puts your theory to the test, by demonstrating what you can actually do – initially against 7 Core Coaching Skills and ultimately against 26 Coaching Skills. Through being benchmarked yourself you learn the art and science of shaping performance through benchmarking.

» The unique Matrix Model

This revolutionary model for mapping human functioning brings together all the very best from the fields of Systems, NLP and NS into one comprehensive model. Initially developed by Dr. Hall in 2001 for working with the mind-body-emotion systems of humans this model has also become a critical model for working within organisational, family, and cultural systems. This model finally gives the new and experienced Coach a model for facilitating systemic change – using psychological premises and specific NLP and NS change patterns for knowing precisely what to do when.

» The Neuro-Semantics Self-Actualization Models

There are three NS self-actualization models: the NS Self-Actualization model specifies thetheoretical frameworks of the concept of self-actualizing (making actual one’s potentials by mobilizing resources), the Marix of self-actualization, and the Self-Actualization Quadrants. These models detail the definition, meaning, components, and processes of actualizing one’s best possibilities. In the context of coaching, these models actualize the best visions in the human potential movement by Maslow, Rogers, Carl, and others by giving practical processes.
