1. Daily Gratitude Diary Template
Think gratitude journalling might help your clients? Well, this daily gratitude diary template is a self-discovery tool and so MUCH more than just writing a list of what they’re grateful for.Often people just don’t know where to start. This gratitude diary template provides a step-by-step framework that asks them to review their day, what they could learn from it and what they are grateful for. At the end, it then asks them to reconsider their day in light of their new understanding and see if anything has changed.
This coaching exercise gets your clients started asking deeper questions and learning how their mindset affects their experience of life. Ideal for clients who want to gratitude journal or who have never journalled before and want to get started!
2. Draw Out Your Gremlin Exercise
Help your clients break free of their limiting beliefs and self-judgements with this gremlin coaching exercise! (3 pages). This “Draw Out Your Gremlin” coaching exercise asks your clients to literally draw out their gremlin or inner critic. This brings a fresh awareness to how they may be sabotaging themselves and providing – for many – a novel way of looking at themselves and how their mind works.
Page 1 provides simple instructions and space to draw their gremlin or inner critic. Page 2 has sample images to stimulate your client’s thinking.
And *newly added Page 3* briefly discusses the origin of gremlins, then asks questions to help your client learn about their gremlin like “When do they show up?”, “Where or who might they have come from?” and “How might life be different without your gremlin?”
A great life coaching exercise for you to begin the discussion of gremlins, inner critics and judges, how they operate, how they impact us and why.
3. Intuition and Dream Symbol Exercise!
Help your clients tap into their intuition and inner wisdom! This simple and fun coaching exercise is a self-discovery tool that helps your clients understand themselves more deeply through a personal image or symbol – a powerful way to access our inner selves and reconnect with our hearts. Also, if your clients have an image that comes up in a dream (especially if it appears repeatedly) this coaching form will help them explore the meaning more deeply.
This self-discovery tool includes a review section and a 5 minute relaxing visualization for you to read to your client and get them into a receptive and open frame of mind. (3 pages)
4. Love and Loathe List Exercise
This self-discovery tool and coaching exercise helps your clients add more of what they love and do less of what they loathe in their life and/or work. Page 2 has powerful questions to help the client review their learnings and asks the client to identify actions. This coaching exercise is very simple and straightforward – and VERY effective. (2 pages)
5. Role Model Confidence Boosting Exercise
Inspire your client with confidence with this thoughtful life coaching exercise. This powerful coaching tool helps your client identify specific qualities they personally respect and admire as well as think about and find ways to adapt and bring these qualities into their own life.
Of course we can’t recognize in others what we don’t already have withing ourselves – those skills or qualities just need developing… Which is where, you come in!
Your client gets a confidence boost by realising they already have those qualities – and by identifying ways they could bring more of those qualities into their daily lives.
6. Troll Travels – Who am I? Self-Discovery Exercise!
This is probably my favourite self-discovery coaching tool! Using Trevor the Troll, this powerful coaching exercise helps your clients get really authentic with themselves and figure out which of their qualities THEY value the MOST. The chances are, it won’t be what they expect.
Your clients brainstorm their qualities (‘good’ and ‘bad’) on page one. Then on page two they begin the process of eliminating the less important qualities. The idea is that, at the end, they are left with the qualities that make up the core essence of who they are – but the qualities THEY truly value about themselves, not the qualities society or their loved ones want FOR them. (2 pages)
TIP: Try it on yourself first to get vital insights into this powerful and inspiring exercise and see what I mean! For a description of how to use this powerful tool click here >>
