People who enter a coaching relationship are trying to shift something either in their work-life, their personal-life, or both. Before coming into the coaching relationship, the client has already considered the implications of discussing the issue with those closest to him or her: spouse, colleague, boss, friend, etc.
The problem with trying to work through an issue with those people closest to you is that they each will have an opinion on why you should or should not change. Many of these people also bring to the conversation some type of baggage or potential future threat.
A professional coach is trained to put personal opinions aside, and to focus on you – your word choice, body language, and overall energy. We provide you with a space in which you can allow those bottled up emotions and thoughts to come out, and you are able to look at them, talk about them, and ultimately decide what works for you and what you want to release. The coach is trained to be non-judgmental, and while they may ask you clarifying questions, they will not tell you that something is right or wrong.
When we try to just think through an issue on our own, we get caught up in our own mental models and way of thinking. Sometimes explaining those thoughts to another person allows us to hear it in a different way. Maybe it made perfect sense in your head, but saying it out loud, and having the coach echo it back to you, causes you to see it in a different light — promoting discovery.
Coaching provides a vehicle for change and personal growth. Sometimes the coach will see that there is a strong emotion attached to your issue, and, utilizing the tools of her craft, the coach will ask questions that help you look at those emotions and find a path through the turmoil to a place of peace and comfort.
Coaching is not about giving advice, but it allows you, the client, to look at what is really going on, and to say what you need to say without any repercussions to your close relationships at home and at work. Coaching is not therapy – we aren’t going to ask about your relationship with your mother, or enquire about your childhood. The past is not the focus – only where you are at today, and where you want to be in the future.
Coaching is an investment that pays handsome dividends. You are worth it!
