What is this thing called coaching?
"Absolute focus is the key to all great human achievement. Its opposite, preoccupation, is the enemy of all achievement"
- Steve Chandler
Coaching is a creative partnership with me, your coach, aimed to design and implement specific, meaningful changes in your personal and professional life.
What Coaching is.
Moves my client towards their desired future outcomes, instead of concentrating on past experiences or reasons for present dissatisfaction.
Emphasizes the holistic nature of my client, seeing how positive change can fit into their bigger picture.
Allows me to trust my client’s inner resources and skills, respecting their agenda and future outcomes. Coaching is an advice-free zone.
Pursues transformational change in specific, inspired steps that lead to fundamental shifts in attitude, behavior and habit formation.
What Coaching is not.
Unlike therapists and counselors, coaches don't focus on the childhood or past experiences that might be the root of the way a person lives or feels. Instead they help their clients get clear on what they want in the future, why they want it, and how they are going to achieve it.
Consultants diagnose the needs of an organization or individual and offer their own solutions based on their specialized expertise to ‘fix’ the problem; solutions which they often implement for the client as well. Coaches use tools and processes to help clients to generate their own solutions and then hold them accountable for following through
Someone new to coaching might hear the word "coach" and think football, but sports coaches generally are in charge, setting the goals and the path to victory. Teaching, correcting, and managing are all skills a sports coach would use. Professional life, business or executive coaching is the opposite; it's the client who sets the goals.
Why everyone should have a coach.
"No man's knowledge here can go beyond his experience"
- John Locke
