The Wheel of Life

Overview: Today’s featured coaching tool is the Wheel of Life: a simple, yet powerful tool to help people clarify, measure and assign priorities to different focus areas in their life.  

Origin: This tool stems from the Buddhist view of the universe and is one of the most common subjects of Buddhist art – see the beautiful, colorful, and intricate image below. Its use in coaching, time management, and goal setting appears to started with Paul J. Meyer, founder of the Success Motivation® Institute, Inc.

How it works: Clients choose focus areas / dimensions, identify current and future time allocations, and execute a strategic change plan

Coaches and clients: I’m seeking stories about your experience with the Wheel of Life to feature in my upcoming 2020 executive coaching playbook! If you use the Wheel of Life, please send me an e-mail at ExecSuccess @ gmail dot com with details. I’ll pick three stories (anonymized to protect your privacy) to feature in my upcoming book. As a thank you, if your story is featured, I’ll also send you a copy of my book once it’s published!
