Robert Fritz’s Concept of Structural Tension

Robert Fritz's Concept of Structural Tension - agile-od.com

Sharing to fellow coaches this useful visual from Peter Senge’s Fifth Discipline book. Bringing awareness to limiting beliefs, while shifting the attention to action, is a recurring yet intricate theme in coaching.

We have a tendency to dwell too long on problems, and limiting beliefs are no exceptions. Helping the coachee find that they actually have the choice to release themselves from a belief that is holding them back, rather than “solving” it like a problem, can be a catalyst moment in coaching.

When appropriate and with permission, I sometimes share this visual with my coachees. A picture speaks a thousand words, and often, this helps them click.
