Coaching, essentially, is about encouraging and facilitating the changes that will lead to your desired results. It is about guiding someone from their current state to an improved, more desirable future state.
The various roles one plays in life can be filled with great joy, and also great stress and sorrow. Whether you are a business leader or new employee; a parent, grandparent, sibling or child; a neighbour or community leader, you and others layer expectations on top of expectations – all creating the possibility of disharmony, stress and strain.
Role of a Coach
A coach is a dependable, trustworthy sounding board who will help individuals achieve progress and forward movement in learning, performance and fulfillment. As Aristotle said, “Happiness depends upon ourselves” and as Thoreau stated, “The secret of achievement is to hold a picture of a successful outcome in the mind.” Coaches are invaluable in helping individuals achieve those successful outcomes.
Individual coaching is one of the most powerful tools a person can use to achieve personal and professional growth. This form of coaching is entirely personalized to meet your needs, move at your pace, and serve your vision of the future.
Coaching is—quite simply—a wonderful gift to give yourself.
One-on-one coaching is designed for individuals who want more out of life: finding personal or professional direction – from the inside out, discovering a more authentic life path, and finding more fulfilling work, or making your current work more fulfilling.
Individual Coaching Benefits
A coach works with individuals to help them get really clear about what is desired and then in developing the necessary steps for realizing that vision. Reducing the impact of fears, your inner critic and negative mental chatter is a key positive outcome that most clients experience along with more confidence, calm and everyday joy.
