What is Coaching?
Coaching is a tool to create clarity and produce measurable results in your business and in your personal life. Coaching is designed to help you move forward faster than you could on your own. Coaching is a process whereby a trained professional helps you to take consistent action toward the life you want to live. Coaching helps you to enjoy both the journey and the destination.
Benefits of Coaching
As human beings, we all have inherent “blind spots,” or areas that we can’t see clearly. Sometimes, this takes the form of failing to see the full value of our own talents and unique gifts. At other times, we fail to see our own weaknesses. This is an inescapable aspect of being human. A coach is trained to see the things about you that you can’t see about yourself.
A coach’s job is to be your personal champion. A good coach is someone who believes in you, even during the moments when you don’t believe in yourself. A coach helps to equip you with the tools to stay motivated and stay in action when the going gets tough. A coach doesn’t just give you tools and leave you to your own devices to use them. Also, a coach doesn’t just give you advice about how to solve problems. Your coach’s role is to get to know your life vision intimately and personally, and help you become the person you need to be in order to fulfill on your goals and dreams.
Professional athletes and successful executives all have coaches. They come to recognize that they cannot attain success on their own. That single factor is a big part of what separates professionals from amateurs.
I call myself a success coach. My methodology is different from other types of coaching because I focus on developing you into the person you want to become. A number of other coaching programs just focus on setting goals or modifying behavior, and I feel that this isn’t enough. When you were growing up, your parents didn’t ask you what you wanted to do when you grew up. They asked you what you wanted to be. We often lose sight of this.
While it’s entirely possible to set goals, take actions, and get results, this often leaves people feeling unfulfilled or disappointed. Success isn’t about making a lot of money or getting the next promotion. Success is about looking in the mirror and seeing the person you always dreamed of being. Anything short of this is not a success in my book.
