What is Coaching?
At times in our life we all can experience events, situations, emotions and feelings that stop us or hinder us from making progress, moving on, getting the life or results we want.
Whether it’s personal or work related issues, understanding how your mind is working and applying the correct techniques and skills, can help you make the changes you want and make the progress you desire.
People take on coaching services because they want to achieve goals and improve their situations. They want to acquire new ways of thinking and approaching situations, in order to improve their results.
Typical coaching goals might be to be more effective and organised at work; interact more effectively with people; gain confidence in certain situations, gain an improved work/life balance or manage change.
Whether it’s Life Coaching, Accountability Coaching, Success Coaching, Stress & Anxiety Management & Coaching, Executive or Entrepreneur and Business Coaching or just general coaching to help you get what you want coaching can help you.
How will coaching help and benefit me?
Coaching is about making progress and moving towards the outcomes, goals and solutions that are right for you.
Many people seek coaching to help gain some perspective and clarity of thought. Coaching helps by helping people discover what they want and help them take action to get it. It can apply to career change, business and executive/entrepreneur coaching, all the way to the stressed and overwhelmed person who needs some assistance, dealing with their stresses, anxieties and chaotic minds, and regaining control over their lives.
Coaching is a series of conversations, techniques and tools that will help you to take action. In addition to conversations in can also include tasks and worksheets help to clarify and build the momentum people need to make progress and achieve fulfilment in their lives.
What’s Stopping you?
We all reach points in our lives, where we feel stuck. We’re not moving forward or we’re not quite sure what action to take. Coaching can help you stop feeling stuck, trapped or “in limbo” and get you moving forward.
Getting what you want
How many people truly know what they want? If they do “think” they know, how will getting what they want affect all the other areas of their lives? Coaching can help people to discover what they want and plan how to get it.
Without taking action nothing changes. May be you already know what you want, but where do you start? Coaching can help you plan and set goals and outcomes, which allow you take the steps you need to get what you want.
Taking Action – Being at “cause” not “effect”
Cause and Effect, a concept we are all very familiar with. When it comes to coaching it is one of the essential building blocks of change.
Being “at cause”
It is no surprise when we maybe look at our lives in retrospect, the times when everything has “gone right” for us, and we’ve been successful and achieved what we wanted, it has been when we’ve taken positive, consistent action to achieve it. We have what we call been “at cause“. We have taken action and made it happen.
Being “at effect”
However, there are times in all our lives when we can feel overwhelmed. We end up stuck, unsure of what actions to take. We feel life is happening “to us”. We can feel we are passengers, we have no control over the events, circumstances or paths that our lives are taking.
This is what we call being “at effect“.
Coaching can help you regain control. Regain order, Regain clarity, and help you back to being “at Cause”.
Coaching – a collaborative process – what’s involved
Coaching normally takes the form of a series of conversations that one person has with another. During the conversations I will intend to work the conversation in a way that benefits the other person, the coachee, (that’s you!) in terms of their learning and progress.
It is my role as a coach to support you in focussing on your situations with the commitment and attention that you rarely get elsewhere.
I will listen to you, with a genuine curiosity to understand who you really are, what you think and how you experience your world. We will use objective assessment to reflect back to you in order to create real clarity for you. During our sessions I will encourage you to overcome obstacles, rise to challenges, and take action.
As a coach I believe that an individual is ultimately responsible for their own life and the results that they are getting. If it is acknowledged that we are responsible for something then it follows that we have power and influence over it.
In order to assist you in improving your results in a certain situation, say at work, I may encourage you to understand that situation more clearly and develop new ideas or approaches for that situation. I may also encourage you to take action in order for you to get the results that you want.
What I will not do is instruct you to do something specific or go and do it for you as this would be taking responsibility and consequently power away from you.
Your discussions will remain confidential as our relationships are based on trust and openness.
You could expect to see the following benefits from a coaching programme:
- Increased motivation.
- Improved sense of direction and focus.
- Increased ability to handle change through greater resourcefulness and resilience.
- Improved personal effectiveness.
- Improved ability to influence and relate to others.
- Increased self awareness and knowledge of self.
