When working with students facing learning challenges, these ideas can be be valuable.

A similar technique in coaching learners involves a combination of a "nudge" and developing "strategies". We use this with language acquisition and "big" assignments such as research projects. I start with asking the student to define three or five things that will move them forward--the nudge points. Then we define strategies to get there.

Future conversations relate to those three to five things. My tecniques align with the GROW model of coaching developed by the late Sir John Whitmore.
