Your TRUTH Model

A Coaching Model By Audrey Bolo, Career Coach, KENYA

Your TRUTH Model, Opening the Door to Coaching Conversations

This model can support coaching conversations for clients navigating transitions in both their personal and professional lives. Whether they are considering a new job, a promotion, or starting a business. Moving to a new country, starting a new relationship, or planning a marriage.

Change: an external event that occurs.

Transition: an inner psychological process to come to terms with change.

All change that a client needs to navigate feels personal, and how they navigate the transition should ideally be guided by their truth.

Essential Meaning Of Truth

  1. The real facts about somethingthe things that are true are you telling (me) the truth? At some point, you have to face the simple/hard/honest/plain/naked truth that we failed.
  2. The quality or state of being true there’s no truth in anything he says. [=nothing he says is true] I doubt the truth of their accusations. [=I doubt that their accusations are true] Her story contains a grain/kernel of truth, but also lots of exaggeration.
  3. A statement or idea that is true or accepted as true
