„Everybody needs a coach… every famous athlete, every famous performer, has somebody who’s a coach… someone who can help them see themselves as others see them.” – Former Google CEO, Eric Schmidt
When seeking advice, many turn to friends, family and even colleagues to gain insight on how to reach their fullest potential. However, those who are close to you, and untrained in the coaching profession, are generally not unbiased. Subconsciously, their advice is injected with not only their knowledge and perceptions of you, but also their own values. Though their intentions are honest, the unique skills of an objective, experienced life coach will better aid you in gaining momentum toward a more meaningful life. No matter which modality you seek, a supportive, professional relationship is essential to personal growth.
The first step in good Life Coaching is to figure out who you really are— your strengths, your personality, your values, and the vision you have for your life. When we’re clear about what you want and have specific goals in mind, we can move on to understanding what you need to create lasting change.
Uncovering obstacles. This is the deep part of coaching, where we look at the obstacles that have been holding you back from making the changes you desire. These can be inner obstacles, like unhelpful core beliefs or ineffective strategies. Sometimes there are obstacles outside yourself that need to be dealt with before you can move forward.
When you understand who you are, where you want to go, and the obstacles in your way, you can make a plan of action. This plan usually involves learning new strategies to deal with obstacles– both inner and outer. When you learn how to do things differently, you get better results.
By the time we get to the action phase, you’ll know exactly what to do. In every coaching session you will get a new strategic “assignment” to carry out, and take the action that will move you forward. The purpose of your life coach is to act as your accountability partner, keeping you motivated… until you learn how to keep yourself motivated.
The Time is Right.
Motivation opens and shuts like a door. It’s open right now.
As a result of your thinking, “What I’m doing now isn’t working. Something has to change.” It already has— you are already taking action, and trying something different.
You’re googling around for life-coaches, and you found me.
