Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that helps people produce extraordinary results in their lives, careers, businesses or organizations. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their learning, improve their performance, and enhance their quality of life. In each meeting or call, the Coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client into effective action.
Coaching accelerates progress by providing focus and awareness. It concentrates on where you are now and what you are willing to do to get where you want to be in the future, recognizing that results are a matter of your intentions, choices and actions. Supported by a good Coach’s efforts and the application of the coaching process, amazing things can happen. Why Coaching Is Important In this day and age when we have become so reactive in response to the daily needs of life, coaching is the opportunity to break free. In a coaching relationship you are in the seat of power and control and can proactively direct your life in the direction you want to go. In any area, career, relationship, health, community, when you are being coached you are asked two very important questions.
First, what do you want?
Second, what are you willing to do about it?
These questions are potent and confronting, but the whole idea behind coaching is that you are hiring someone to supportively hold you accountable for getting what you want. You determine what that is. You’d be amazed at how hard this can be for some. We are clear about only some of our dreams and desires. I often hear:
“I want to be paid well for doing work that I love.”
“I want more quality time with my family and friends.”
“I want to be healthy and fit, without having to go to the gym.”
“I want meaning and purpose in my life.”
But you might also be shocked to learn that quite often people say to me, “My dream is to have a dream.” So mired in reality, so busy living by our clocks and calendars, we often forget what matters to us or have little time to even think about it. That’s where a Coach comes in. Your Coach can help you get in touch with your purpose and passion, your dreams and hopes, to overcome your fears and doubts and most importantly support you in taking the necessary steps, week by week, day by day for getting what you want. Even as a Dream Coach, I continue to use a Coach myself.
A Coach listens intently, asks clarifying questions, challenges my assumptions, helps me dream big and makes sure I do the important things I say I will do in order to have the precious things I say I want. It is a partnership based on intention, agreement, integrity and relationship. The bottom line is we can’t do it alone. Some of us think we can, but with a Coach you will be challenged, stretched and empowered. You will dream bigger dreams, have insights, uncover and hopefully remove limitations. With a Coach you will increase your chances at being successful and you will be celebrated for it.
