How to Create Your Power Tool

After studying a number of ways you can change someone's perspective from this to that, create a power tool that resonates with you and your coaching niche. You can use ICA's Power tools for inspiration, but your power tool must be unique to you and named uniquely. It should also fit with the this vs that framework

5 Easy Steps

Use the following steps as a guide to help you through your process.

Step 1: Study Other Power Tools

After studying a number of ways you can change someone's perspective from this to that, create a power tool that resonates with you and your coaching niche. You can use ICA's Power tools for inspiration, but your power tool must be unique to you and named uniquely. It should also fit with the this vs that framework

Action: Visit the ICA Blog and read some of the Graduate Power Tools from our Graduates

Step 2: Reflect

Consider a significant recent event or situation you or someone around you experienced. Look for the perspectives held by those involved. Consider the following exploratory questions:

- What challenges and/or successes were involved in this experience?

- What perspectives or beliefs were present in the circumstances?

- Were challenging circumstances transcended with a change of perspective or point of view?

- How did you or those around you change the way they perceived matter and, as a result, experienced an improve mood (embodied beliefs), found new choices, and took new action?

Step 3: Choose a Perspective

With your reflections from step one in mind, consider a point of view that limits possibilities creating a ‘stuck feeling’ that inhibits growth, self-awareness or opportunity for taking action and moving forward.

Example: fear, scarcity, insecurity

Now consider a more empowering perspective or attitude to the one chosen above. It doesn’t have to be the exact opposite point of view – just one that is more likely to create new ways of thinking and creative actions.

Example: trust, abundance, adequacy.

Step 4: Describe and Define

Define and/or describe each of the perspectives you choose. You can do this in any order you prefer – starting with one perspective and then the other or go back and forth between the two to make the distinction

Layout: Introduction, Explanation, Application, Reflection, References
