Seeing a coach means you probably have goals and outcomes that you want to achieve in your life or career, or both.
You want to be challenged, or encouraged to move forward. You want to reach you capabilities and grow. You want to create resources and find strengths to allow you to pursue your target.
Life coaching is a way of working that uses a collaborative solution-focused, holistic approach. The aim is to facilitate and enhance life experience, personal growth and self directed learning.
Coaching will give you a clearer picture of yourself, improve confidence and self belief. Through understanding your situation and what you want to achieve more clearly, it will equip you with tools to create better opportunities. This will help you move forward in a positive, more satisfying way. This is a non-judgemental, non-directive approach.
You, the client are the author of your life. Coaching will give you the confidence to deal with life in a more proactive, effective way.
Coaching can help you to deal with work related issues, improve performance, assist in the identification of future change along with understanding yourself and the direction that is right for you through insight and reflection.
Our state of mind affects performance. Coaching can help you to create for yourself an understanding of what is getting in the way of you achieving your desired outcome. It will enable you to be more authentic and will give you the tools and skills to achieve.
Many of us at one time or another are dissatisfied where we are, or where our life, job, relationship is going. Sometimes we find ourselves in the same rut, doing the something again and again and not able to change. We know we have the potential to do more, to be more, achieve more, but can’t understand why we can’t seem to act, can’t seem to get there.
Going to a coach will help you find a way forward. A coach will help you to find new, more positive ways of managing a situation, enable you to see what is getting in the way and help you develop better strategies that are more productive and proactive.
Being in your ‘comfort zone’ is great, it enables you to feel safe, but won’t enable you to get that job you have always wanted, or be the person you have always wanted to be if only things didn’t get in the way.
We can always find excuses, reasons why you weren’t able to achieve, reasons why life threw us a bad deal. If you have decided that now is the time to take action, to move on and get to that place you want to be in, deserve to be, were born to be. Then now is the time.
Sometimes however, we all need a little helping hand, some support and encouragement, guidance. Asking for help is not a weakness, but a strength. Recognising this isn’t always easy. Coaching will enable you to move on, will give you those opportunities you have longed for, but were unable to find
Change can be scary. We want change, but when it finally happens, it can feel unfamiliar and unsafe. It can take us time and a great deal of effort and sometimes can feel overwhelming. This is ‘normal.’ Change can also happen instantly, but can take quite a few attempts to maintain. Understanding this is part of the process. Athletes don’t just happen. There is a great deal of effort involved, but like most athletes they work with a coach, they have guidance and support to achieve their goal. Coaching will help you realise you potential and seeing this is part of this process. Visualising ourselves is important, we need to imagine ourselves as the person we want to be, visualise ourselves having that job, overcoming our fears, and finally achieving that goal!!
