Why Coaching?

Why bother engaging with a Coach? 

I have the Internet. I can find out anything I need to know there. I can read it for free, download a book or watch a video on YouTube. 

I used to think the same until I started studying Coaching and being Coached. The key was the relationship and the questions that were being asked to me. These questions  challenged me to look in the mirror, take more responsibility and accountability for my own life and successes.

Coaching is related to growth and development. The overarching goal of my coaching is to bring about progress in a persons potential abilities and talents. My role, as your coach, is to challenge and support you from where you are now to a desired place.

In my role as a Coach, I work with executives, new managers, owners of small businesses, sales people and those going through a change in their life or career to improve their own strategies to reach their potential or achieve high performance. My coaching is about improving a person’s competence which can lead to increased confidence.

How the Coaching Process Works

The coaching process is a hands-on session between a coach and a coachee. As the relationship between the coach and coachee is vital to the success of the process, building a rapport between the two is key. The coach will be asking many open questions and be an active listener. The process starts with a goal, something that you want to achieve, plus a discussion of your reality around this goal. Time is then spent looking at options and strategies to help with closing the gap between these.

Coaching is around change  and the coachee will have to open their mind to new ways of seeing and doing things to help with them making this transition. This may involve adding new skills, adapting new methods or using different tools and techniques to help them to get to where they want to. It may involve being more open-minded and viewing things from a different perspective.

The coach may challenge some of your beliefs and thoughts, as well as probe you on your values and look to gain an understanding around how you manage your emotions.

Accountability for progress sits with the coachee and it is important for the coachee to take on this responsibility for their activity or inactivity.

Tasks will be agreed upon following a coaching session and will be reviewed at the next session around what worked and what didn’t work and reasons for successes and non successes. Patterns may start to appear that can be probed.

Success for the coachee can be viewed by either achieving their goal or by having learnt and grown as a person while on the coaching journey.

The key is to be focused on activities that are taking you forward. There is no need to be looking back as you aren’t going that way.

Change v Transition

“It isn't the changes that do you in, it's the transitions. Change is not the same as transition. Change is situational: the new site, the new boss, the new team roles, the new policy. Transition is the psychological process people go through to come to terms with the new situation. Change is external, transition is internal”.

To discuss the transition you are going through, drop me a line or give me a call to discuss and see how I can help you through this transition.
