This week, and next, we are going to take a deeper dive into my new Team and Group Coaching Superpower Quiz, launched a few weeks ago, it explores five different coaching styles which are common in the team and group coaching space. My hope is that this provides you with further insights as to your individual superpower. Note: as a coach you may have more than one superpower (a primary, secondary and even tertiary).
Today, we’re going to dive into the Spiral Lighthouse Coach:
The Spiral Lighthouse Coach (S-LTHS) is all about deepening the learning and creating a grounded harbour of trust, safety and connection.
The Triad of Trust, Connection and Safety takes our focus to the power of Community. The following graphic comes from Reconnecting Workspaces (refer to Chapter 5), and you can hear me talk about it more in my TEDx Talk.
They bring the gift of Seeing things in a 360 aligned way, recognizing that learning is ongoing and things/vantage points will change as the journey proceeds. This leads us to the metaphor of the spiral staircase.
Like the stairs on a spiral staircase S-LTHS Coaches are all about looking at things from different vantage points. From the Ground level up to the MetaView, they are all about unlayering topics with clients from different vantage points. In this respect, they are all about ongoing learning, reflection, action and pause.
The overlap of the Spiral Lighthouse Coach (S-LTHS) is the sibling of the Ecosystem Connector (E-CONN). Both coaches focus on the WEB is similar but is nuanced in that the driver for the E-CONN is around connections, and the driver for the S-LTHS is alignment and layers, ensuring that one builds on to each other.

Partnering with Any Spiral Lighthouse Coaches? If so, stay tuned for how to adjust your style in a few weeks. First, we’re going to look at the five styles (this week and next) and then the following two weeks explore the factors when you are partnering with others.
A reminder that later this month I will also be leading a new program in our Team Coaching Certification pathway – Co-Coaching Essentials. I hope that you will consider joining me on Tuesday November 15th for the inaugural offering of this program.
