Do you have goals and ambitions? Do you find it hard on achieving them? Working with a good coach can help you make them happen. Goals such as finding a better job, growing your business, changing your career path, or getting a promotion; are common goals that some people find it hard to reach. Life or career coach can help you remove the blocks that are keeping you from attaining those goals, create a plan, and help you get there.
Coaching is different from counseling; coaching is about now, the future, and taking action. It focuses on what you want and helps you in taking the steps, while counseling and therapy are often from the past and contemplating. Counseling and therapy won’t help you reach your goals or dreams, but coaching does.
Here’s how coaches can help you achieve your goals:
Set better goals: Coaches have the skills to ask compelling questions – those that focus on what’s important and why.
Provide perspectives: Coaches help you see different aspects. They want you to succeed, yet they are not emotionally attached to the outcomes. Thus, preventing them the Myopia perspective. Most clients have Myopia perspective, where the incapacity to see any view but the one they have.
Coaches are invested in getting what you want: The customer’s success is also a coach’s success, so your coach will keep you going meaningfully to your aspired goals.
Provides gentle responsibility: When you share your goals, your coach will regularly check back to find out how things are fitting, this gives a convincing reason for doing what you will say you will do.
Provides support, structure, and necessary tools: Coaches know no man is an island, we all need help to get there. Coaches offer the missing instruments, so your odds for success is at the highest.
Coaching consists of regular meet ups or practical sessions to explore your topic, questions, and goals. They are in-depth communications, which may involve visual and creative exercises, guided meditation and compelling questions. It’s a collective process of personal and professional growth, with the intention to move you away from your comfort zone and into your growth and learning zone. A coach recognizes what you can’t see or imagine. A minimum of three months of coaching is advised since the process of establishing a person’s motivation, setting targets and then seeing results takes time.
