Week 11 Sample:  Approaches to Feedback


  • Read Chapter 11 in the 2.0 Advanced Live Coach Training Guide 2nd Edition 
  • Read supplemental information on feedback


  • How did you employ your growth mindset over the past week?


This week, we will be discussing all things feedback. Starting with the challenges, we will sort out what roadblocks people experience when receiving feedback from others. From there, we will briefly explore strategies for delivering feedback. This can be applied both to your coaching and your client’s need to provide feedback to others. 

We will conclude this class with a discussion on receiving feedback and study a tool that allows us to identify the Muck, the Gem, and the Plan in every piece of feedback.


The points to address for today’s one-to-one work are: 

  • Identify a piece of past feedback that was not well-received by your client. 
  • Walk them through the Muck, the Gem, and the Plan as if they had just received the feedback yesterday. 
  • When you arrive at the “Plan” stage, ensure that your client has tangible action steps they can take in the next week.
