Why Coaching?

 

For many of us, "coaches" are people who help at Little League, or in professional sports.  The idea of having a professional listen to and access your deepest secrets and negative behaviours seems foreign and a little intimidating.

How many times though have you called up a girlfriend, or a parent to ask for advice, and having no ability to see anything other than their own opinions and experience, you got nowhere?

When you really think of it, successful people have coaches. Professional athletes, CEOs of mulitnational corporations, politicians, actors,  they all have coaches to help them with their career performance, and their mindset. A professional coach can help you identify and focus on what’s important, what steps you need to take and will accelerate your success.

Forbes magazine describes a good coach as one who

  • Creates a safe environment in which people see themselves more clearly;

  • Identifies gaps between where the client is and where the client needs or wants to be

  • Ask for more intentional thought, action and behavior changes than the client would have asked of him or herself

  • Guide the building of the structure, accountability, and support necessary to ensure sustained commitment

When it comes to business or career, family and relationships, personal growth and more,  a coach can be a powerful resource who can help you get out of your own way, stand out, and take action to achieve the things that are truly important to you.

 

What else can a coach help with?

  1. Get clear about your goals. 

  2. Identify blind spots. 

  3. Be accountable. Co

  4. Focus your efforts. 

  5. Gain a competitive advantage.

  6. Acquire leadership skills. 

  7. Feel happier. 

Simply put, a coach will help you stoke your success. How much is that worth to you?

When we deny the story, it defines us.

When we own our story we can write a brave new ending.
