There are many, many benefits to having an executive, business, life coach. It truly can and will change a persons life. Unfortunately, most people who are not familiar with professional coaching assume that having a coach is much like having a traditional athletic coach who tells you what you’re doing wrong and then tells you how to do it. That’s not what coaching in the modern sense is about at all, and as we all know, a coach, boss, or anyone for that matter telling someone consistently how to do something creates a person who is conditioned like Pavlov’s dogs to believe they must always go to someone else to find the answers they seek.
True coaching is about bringing awareness to a client so that they can be the best that they can be. The client owns the coaching session and selects the topic which could be anything from a work or business challenge to even in a relationship issue and then the coach helps the client finds the answers that are actually found inside the client themselves.
Now imagine having a issue at work or in your life and having your private, confidential coach calling you at a set day and time each week. This week, like every week, since you decided to get serious about your business, goals and life, you know the exact issue you plan to discuss with your coach. And after the hour long coaching session you again have several solid options to solve the issue you’ve been dealing with. When your working with your coach you seem to gain clarity in the silence as you sometimes struggle deep inside yourself to find the answers that you didn’t know were there. Each question seems to take you deeper inside yourself. You also notice these conversations that your having with your coach are much different than conversations with a family member or colleague because your coach has no bias and is solely focused on increasing your awareness and helping move your life to the next level. You also notice that your coach will say things that your colleagues and family would never say because it’s their job to not tell you what you want to hear, but to sometimes tell you the brutal truth…the thing you need to hear to move you forward out of being stuck in a rut. Your success is your coaches success as well.
These are just a few of the benefits of hiring a certified coach. You are investing in yourself by making sure you have someone in your inner circle who is truly looking after you and your goals, and your well-being. A coach doesn’t need to be an expert in your field they just need to know how to help you find the answers that are already inside of you!
