What is Coaching?
1. Coaching is a Transformational Conversation
The biggest surprise for first time clients is realizing that the coach isn't there to give advice. Instead, powerful, coaching questions stimulate you to examine the things in life that matter most from new angles. A coaching conversation can transform the way you look at life.
2. Coaching is a Transparent Relationship
A coach is a friend and a confidant, your greatest supporter, and someone who knows you well enough to call out the best in you. A transparent relationship with your coach frees you to go places you've never gone before.
3. Coaching is a Support System for Change
With support, encouragement, and accountability from someone who believes in us, we can do far more than we'd ever accomplish alone. A coach helps you stay on track, overcome obstacles, and convert your "want-to's" into concrete steps that are put into your schedule.
4. Coaching is Continuous Leadership Development
Coaches don't give solutions; they'll help you solve your own problems. Coaching is helping you learn instead of telling you what to do. By leveraging every situation to build your capacity as a leader and a person, coaching prepares you to conquer much bigger challenges in the future.
A Coach Is A Personal Change Expert
Coaches help people like you grow faster, preform at higher levels, understand themselves more deeply, and live with greater purpose and fulfillment. In the same way that a personal trainer helps a pro athlete maximize performance, a personal coach can help you get the most out of life.
What Happens in a Coaching Appointment?
Coaching appointments begin with a chance for you to report on your progress and end with a clear set of action steps you choose to take in the week ahead. Through coaching you can make measurable progress each week and have a set aside time for growth.
