Coaching Tools: The Wheels of Life, Business, Health, Wellness, and Spirituality!

As coaching tools go, the wheel is a very versatile diagnostic and transformation tool. Coaches can tailor it to almost any scenario and to any level of detail to help their clients.

Some of the common variations are to create a:

  1. Wheel of Business
  2. Wheel of Health / Wheel of Wellness
  3. Wheel of Spirituality

Each of these wheels helps the client and the coach create a snapshot of the current state.

Using a wheel as a coaching tool allows for:

  • A great onboarding experience because it helps clients with multi-dimensional introspection right away.
  • A robust way to conduct a strategy or discovery session when the clients are still undecided
  • Clearly aligning on outcomes from coaching or a roadmap to the future
  • Creating an accountability system with clients through goal setting and tracking
  • Clearly demonstrating the value of coaching over a period of time as goals and progress are tracked.
  • Giving clients a great way to convey their testimonials compared to informal feedback sessions or surveys.

In this article let’s look at these variations of the Wheel of life as useful coaching tools. Each section will also link to a ready to use template that is available to use. A template will allow you to launch your own personalized and custom wheel in a matter of minutes!

Coaching Tools: The Wheel of Business

A business has many different facets (or dimensions). The Business Wheel helps you measure these dimensions rapidly. Try the live template here to see how it works. You can customize it as per your needs.

Some of the higher level dimensions that you put in the Wheel are finance, marketing, customer service, people satisfaction, and so on.

In turn, each of these facets could be drilled down into more granular topics. For example, if you just want to look at finance, you could then create dimensions such as accounts receivable, tax, compliance, accounts payable etc.

So the dimensions and questions represented by your wheel will depend on your focus area and the level you want to drill down to.

The wheel brings out any possible imbalances that you may want to work with your clients on.

For example, a leader who is more finance savvy will likely have an imbalance when it comes to marketing. The coach can then get down to helping the clients achieve the right balance.

As coaching tool, a Wheel of Business provides for strong introspection and examination. The client’s satisfaction with the different areas can be determined, and desired outcomes can be systematically determined.

Wheel of Health / Wheel of Wellness

Health is another one of those topics that have a variety of different dimensions.

You could have a holistic Wheel of Health (Wellness) with dimensions such as movement, nutrition, sleep, stress, etc.

And if you want to specialize in one aspect alone you could create a wheel of health representing multiple dimensions within nutrition such as food groups, regularity, sources, hydration, etc.

In essence a Wheel of Health / Wellness allows you to arrange your dimensions into a wonderful diagnostic tool. The client’s satisfaction or effectiveness with each dimension can be marked of easily. And then you can work with them to help them achieve or balance their wellness goals.

Some coaches may differentiate the concept of Wellness itself from the concept of Health. They may consider the Wheel of Wellness as a way to balance the various aspects of life itself. In that case a traditional Wheel of Life may be used for Wellness. And a Wheel of Health may be used to go one step deeper into the coaching process.

Wheel of Spirituality

This is such an important topic in many of our lives today. The premise is that a well balanced Wheel of Spirituality can lead to a life full of joy and purpose.

Coaches who specialize in this area can use Evalinator to create a Wheel of Spirituality that can help them determine the balance between dimensions such as discipleship, meditation, service to others, forgiveness, love, sacrifice, pragmatism etc.

A client’s satisfaction or quest in each of these areas can be easily marked off showing which areas need work the most, and which areas to balance.

Once the client or prospect has self-assessed themselves using the Wheel of Spirituality, the coach can work with them on creating the right balance using a combination of introspective sessions and goal setting mechanisms.
