All too often, we harbor a nagging feeling that something is not right – exacerbated by boredom or stress – without actually being able to identify what is wrong. Or, sometimes, we might have the feeling that we need to make a change in our lives, but we do not know how we can achieve this change.
And so it is that life coaching crosses your path, ready to assist you efficiently, practically, to solve all these – and more – uncomfortable thoughts weighing you down.
Coaches are trained to listen, observe, and to customise their approach to an individual client’s needs: they seek to elicit solutions and strategies from their clients. The coach’s job – my job – is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, personality development programmes and creativity that the client has.
Coaches work within a variety of areas, from business and professional issues, to personal and spiritual concerns.
A coach is an advocate, a sounding board, a cheerleader, an accountability partner, a truth teller, and a supporter.
The beauty of coaching is that, together, we will unleash the power that you have inside of you and I, as your coach, will be there and feel proud of you!
I will not only assist you to unleash this power, I will also help you to realise that life is actually quite simple, providing we ensure we look at it from various perspectives.
Coaching is a journey, and if you leave yourself open to the opportunities that lie before you, and are calm in their wake, you will definitely enjoy the process. In fact, once you emerge from the figurative tunnel, you will gaze back and wonder why you didn’t embark upon this journey sooner…believe me! My slogan is that i coach be example. I have been there where you are now and you can be here where i am now, and pass me!
Coaching does not rely on past issues for achieving growth, but rather focuses on goals in moving towards the future: it is action oriented.
The focus is on where you are now, where you want to be next! I call it the V.S.E., where the approach is: Vision, Strategy, Execute. Embracing leadership is key to coaching, because we all need to lead our lives, whether we are a business person, a housewife, or anything else.
Leadership is not magic, though its effects may well be. We are all leaders, and we can do whatever we really want to do, so long as we put our minds to it. This is my vision, and this is what I would like you to understand: you have the power to make the changes you want to make, and I will be your loyal companion along the way.
