A Coach is a Personal Change Expert. Coaches help women like you grow faster, understand themselves more deeply, and live with greater purpose and fulfillment. In a similar way that a personal trainer helps a pro athlete reach their highest potential, a coach can help you get the most out of life.
What Happens in a Coaching Appointment? Coaching appointments begin with a chance for you to report on your progress and end with a clear set of action steps you choose to take in the weeks ahead. But what is that essential spark between you and your coach that makes the relationship so transformational? Read on to discover four facets of coaching that make it so powerful.
Coaching is a Transformational Conversation. The biggest surprise for first-time clients is realizing that the coach isn’t there to give advice. Instead, powerful coaching questions help you to examine the things in life that matter most from new angles. A coaching conversation can transform the way you look at life.
Coaching is a Transparent Relationship. A coach is a friend and confidant, your greatest supporter, and someone who knows you well enough to call out the best in you. A transparent relationship with your coach frees you to explore things you’ve never done before.
Coaching is a Support System for Change. With support, encouragement, and accountability from someone who believes in you, you can do far more than you’d ever accomplish alone. A coach helps you stay on track, overcome obstacles, and turn your dreams into concrete steps that you can start taking right away.
Coaching is Continuous Leadership Development. Coaches don’t give solutions, they help you solve your own problems. By helping you learn from your successes and failures, working with a coach builds your capacity as a leader and prepares you to conquer much bigger challenges in the future.
What Can I Work on With a Coach? The answer is, “Just about anything!” Making time for yourself, discovering your strengths, getting organized, turning a dream into reality--you only need to answer the question, “What do I want to accomplish?”
Coaching works in just about any area because it is about helping you learn the way that you work best. A coach is not an expert advising you in a particular field (that’s consulting), or someone more experience who’s showing you the ropes (that’s mentoring). Coaches are change experts who help you find the solution for your unique situation.
