If you were going to do what you wanted to do, you would have done it by now and not be searching this website! A coach will take you beyond what you currently believe, know and do, and help you develop new skills, insights and techniques to make the changes you want.
You can engage a coach when you have a new goal to achieve, when what you’ve been doing in the past is simply no longer working or when you wish to take the next step in your life. A professional coach will help you develop your skills, strengths and confidence and is an independent, objective supporter who will help you:
- build on what you already know and do to do more than you currently think is possible
- implement new strategies to achieve personal and professional goals
- increase fulfilment and well being and become better equipped to deal with life’s challenges.
Coaching helps you to adopt new behaviours, habits and methods of overcoming life’s challenges. You initiate the agenda and design your environment to meet your own needs, in a way that is right for you. A coach will help you to enhance your skills, self-belief, awareness and responsibility to achieve your goals.
Coaching is not about telling someone what to do. It’s about asking the right questions, listening, guiding self-assessment, exploring options and goal setting, providing feedback and measuring results. It involves a number of steps, starting with an assessment and ending with an outcome.
So is coaching worth paying for? If you are ready to make the changes you want and eliminate your counter-productive habits and stop the games you play that get in your own way, then coaching is worth paying for.
