Is Coaching For Me?
We know that coaching is not for everyone. Not everyone wants to be open, or to learn. Not everyone truly wants to commit to change, or to growth. The old adage of you cannot help those who don’t want to be helped rings true.However, we do know that more people are becoming aware of coaching being applied beyond its sporting roots. We now have (wonderful Excape!) coaches for our physical health, for our sports teams or pursuits, when we are learning music, a language, or a new skill. If you take a moment to think of the best leader, manager or influence you have had - I bet that they have employed a style of coaching with you.So it makes sense that those who want to improve their thinking, improve themselves or their impact on others would seek out a coach.There are various specialities, such as Leadership Coaching, Career Coaching, Relationship Coaching, Group or Team Coaching, and so on. Of course, we can consume masses of content on the internet and through our own research in certain areas - but to genuinely shift, it takes hard work and practice. The information is one thing, understanding how it applies to you, your values, your personality, and your ambition is another. A great coach can help make that hard work a bit easier.It helps to have someone that can help provide clarity, can see the brilliance in you (perhaps more than yourself), and can ask powerful questions that help you make sense of your own thinking, and engage the courage you have inside.So is it for me? Do you sound like one of these people?
