Coaching. What is it all about? Coaching applies to myriad of areas from personal development, to health and wellbeing, from family and relationships to performance and leadership. There are also several methodologies and techniques that go along with that.
Despite the area or method in hand coaching is a powerful tool. Coaching enables you to unlock your potential for development and growth. Coaching provides the space and time to tackle those tough questions you have been avoiding asking yourself. Yes, you already have the answers! After all, you know yourself better than anyone else does. Together with a coach, you can identify your needs, set specific goals and actions, and explore your options.
Most important, you get to take what you learn about yourself and put it into practice in all areas of your life.
How can I benefit from coaching? – You may ask.
Again, the benefits are endless so here a few worth mentioning:
- Increases your self-awareness leading to a better understanding of yourself and others
- Empowers you to take responsibility for yourself and your life translating into more proactive and sustainable goals
- Enables you to identify your strengths and skills by focusing on perceived challenges as development opportunities
- Increases your motivation and level of engagement leading to higher performance
- Provides you with a set of tools and strategies to be used anytime, anywhere
Regardless of where you find yourself, coaching can be quite a transformational journey. Finding the right coach is the first step toward a successful partnership.
Together with a coach – in a safe space – you explore different areas of your life. Following your rhythm, the coach will guide you on your self-discovery journey. No advice, no judgments, no assumptions. While working alongside in a nurturing environment, the coach’s job is to challenge you to see beyond yourself and your limiting-beliefs. To support you in becoming the truest, more authentic version of yourself.
Indeed, you are in the driver’s seat and it is up to you how much you are willing to stretch yourself. If you are still unsure or wondering which topics to tackle, remember that showing up is already half the work. You have to be the one putting yourself first, making the decision to work on yourself.
