Simply put, coaching is a support structure for change that revolves around empowering you to take action with respect to your relationships, health, career/business and personal development. Coaching is relationship-based, goal-driven and client-centered. In coaching we work together in partnership to maximize your greatest potential, enabling you to reach your goals and objectives. Together with providing a safe haven for you to learn, discover, brainstorm and carryout actions, coaching encompasses the whole you and equips you with the necessary tools to live a life that is more fulfilling, meaningful and rewarding.
Perspective or other points of view is one of the many gifts that coaching allows. Creating perspective expands the spectrum through which we can choose to view our life circumstances. When we see things from only one perspective that tends to be the old ways of looking, we are less resourceful. This can lead to feeling victimized by our circumstances. However, when we are able to shift our initial context and viewpoint, we are then able to see new possibility and change. Acting on these newly discovered opportunities will enable you to live a life that is more gratifying.
Unique to coaching is that it:
- Honors your human uniqueness -- Because your own insight and discernment is much more powerful than someone’s advice, coaching helps you learn how to solve your own problems.
- Holds you accountable – Coaching pushes you to think, to stretch yourself, to take responsibility for your life and get done what you deem needs to happen.
- Makes you a better leader -- In contrast to mentoring where wisdom and opportunities are imparted onto you, counseling and consulting where your problems are diagnosed and solutions are rendered, coaching uses relational influence to develop and empower you to become a better leader, allowing you to obtain maximize resolve to your problems.
