John Stevenson of the Sunday Snippet, provided the following insight into coaching.  I hope it helps you as you seek to help others….

The most successful leaders today don’t really manage. They coach.
Great coaches give people direction, ideas, and ongoing support. Great coaches keep things simple. They keep feedback brief, and they also tend to ask more questions.
As a leader, it's important to help others by coaching them in a way that doesn’t rob them of their autonomy and ownership (micromanaging) or leave them wondering what they’re supposed to do next (under-leading).

The right balance lies in helping a person consider and design the right steps for themselves. As a result, they’re much more likely to commit to the plan they’ve created.
In their book "Go To Help: 31 Strategies to Offer, Ask for, and Accept Help," mother and daughter Deborah and Sophie Riegel share 10 questions to ask others in order to get them to think through and develop their own plan.

This is a good list of questions to keep handy if you're leading folks now or aspire to lead them in the future. Here they are: 
  1. Get specific: “What are you planning to do next?”
  2. Get positive: “What’s already working for you in this process?”
  3. Get buy-in: “What’s the opportunity here?”
  4. Get resourceful: “What else do you need to move forward?”
  5. Get realistic: “What do you need to stop doing to move forward with this?”
  6. Get collaborative: “Who else do you need to talk with/work with/align with?”
  7. Get mental: “What’s your current mindset?”
  8. Get tracking: “How will you measure progress?”
  9. Get prioritizing: “What step, if done first, will make other steps easier?”
  10. Get on board: “How else can I help?”

These questions may not be easy or quick to answer but they should get your direct report or colleague moving in the right direction.

And depending on their experience level, you may also find that you do need to work through possible answers with them in order to get them started or truly help them formulate a plan.

Nonetheless, it's a great framework for coaching anyone towards a clearer and more committed plan for setting goals - and getting them accomplished.
