Some coaching conversations have moments of transformation or shifts in perception that allow clients to recognize a new way of thinking or to see a situation that can move them forward in a positive manner. In Appreciative Coaching, these shifts are referred to as “pivotal moments.” When clients pivot, they see their situation with new eyes and experience an accompanying positive emotional response of relief, hope and often excitement. The presenter embarked on a research project to understand the characteristics of pivotal moments in coaching conversations and developed a process and model for identifying and encouraging pivotal moments in coaching.
