Created by Sarah Lewis

This unique coaching tool was designed by our founder, chartered psychologist and experienced organisational coach Sarah Lewis.

Based on appreciative inquiry, positive psychology and systemic consulting, these dice deliver the integrated PRISMM Coaching model, explained in the box, from feeling good right round to first steps for change.

The distinct, colorful dice make it easy to follow the coaching model through from beginning to end with clear, crafted questions for each stage of the process. Beyond this, they can be used more creatively, all at once or in random order. Adapt your style to the needs and mood of the session.

Suggested Uses for the Coaching Cubes

Allow the Dice to Choose the Question. Bring a difference to your coaching practice with these squashable, bouncing tactile rolling dice. Allow the dice to choose the question and open up new avenues of thought and action.

Put the power right back in the hands of your client as they physically handle and roll the dice. Watch them select a dice to roll or a question to answer. Change the dynamic in the session by putting the question ‘out there’ to engage with together.

Release your mental energy. With the carefully crafted questions on the dice just waiting to stimulate reflections and prompt storytelling, you can concentrate on deep listening, building rapport and supporting your client on their journey of discovery.

Delightful touch of playfulness with hidden depth

These cubes work brilliantly online as well as in person, particularly if you are as bad at juggling as I am. They are especially valuable in situations where it's useful to introduce a touch of playfulness without appearing unprofessional. The spectacle of my attempts to juggle never fails to get a laugh and clients enjoy choosing which side of which cube from the ensuing debris.
The hidden depth lies in the knowledge and structure behind the choice of questions, all of which are very powerful; even more so when engaged with in the manner that follows this method of selection. Highly recommended!

Great tool for your team or individual coaching

Need a playful helper for your coaching session or group discussion? The coaching cubes may be the right tool for you! I love to use them for icebreaker sessions in teamworkshops or to guide individual coaching sessions. The questions go deep directly and everyone I used them with felt quite moved after telling their stories. Thank you for this beautiful product

Since making the wise decision :) to include Appreciating Change�s Coaching Cubes in one of my corporate coaching sessions in early December, I have become a genuine believer in �Cube Power�.
What a superbly �simple� way to power-charge coaching sessions and motivate clients.
Have participants roll their individual Coaching Cubes and watch the magic happen as thought-provoking questions move your people to share insights on irksome topics. Enthusiasm for the Coaching Cubes increases exponentially as inhibitions lessen. Valuable discussions invariably pull loose �what if� threads together, thus promoting clear, precise, long-lasting �client authored� results.
Thank you Sarah!

I'm really looking forward to using these with my next coaching client. A playful approach with a serious purpose, to elicit good self conversation and insight.
