Episode 182: Levels of Learning
This concept has been a game-changer for many of my clients, especially when they're navigating uncertainties in their coaching business. I introduce the concept of the Levels of Learning, a framework that helps coaches understand and embrace the discomfort that comes with growth. Using the metaphor of learning to drive, I walk you through the four levels—Unconsciously Incompetent, Consciously Incompetent, Consciously Competent, and Unconsciously Competent—and how they apply to your coaching journey.
- Metaphor of Learning to Drive: Explore the Levels of Learning using the analogy of learning to drive, making the journey relatable and engaging.
- Unconscious Incompetence (Clueless): Recall the excitement of being clueless, similar to wanting to drive before you hit the legal age.
- Conscious Incompetence (Cringe-worthy): Relive the cringe-worthy moments of learning to drive, where every action feels awkward and confusing.
- Conscious Competence (Hyper-focused): Understand the hyper-focused stage, it’s like being a new driver concentrating on every detail.
Unconscious Competence (Masterful): Celebrate reaching the masterful stage, where this new activity becomes second nature.
We can learn to feel the discomfort, embrace the journey, and understand that these levels apply not only to coaching but to any new endeavor.
I encourage you to keep going through the discomfort because it's a sign of growth.
Let’s navigate these levels together on your coaching adventure.
