What is Coaching anyway?
ICF defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfillment.
Your life matters
Your life is important. You deserve to be happy and fulfilled, and you can achieve this by working on your own behalf. Taking a coaching session can help you achieve your dreams, get rid of limiting beliefs, improve your relationships, or overcome your fears so that you can live the life you want!
Helping you see what your own baggage prevents you from seeing
Sometimes, we hold on to past experiences that hinder us from moving forward. These experiences can make us feel inadequate, frustrated, and confused. When we have these thoughts and feelings, they can prevent us from seeing the good things in life and enjoying the present moment.
A coach can help you identify your obstacles and clear the way so you can live your best
Asking for help is a strength
We all need help and support at some point in our lives. We all get stuck sometimes and need the support and encouragement of others to help us move forward. Asking for help is a sign of strength and shows that you are not perfect, but that you are brave enough to accept the fact that you are not perfect and that you acknowledge the need to seek help from others to achieve your goal.
You are the problem, and you are the solution
It is ultimately you who are in charge of your life. You are responsible for making the choices that will shape your future and shape who you will become. And while we would love to change others around us, we simply can't. But what we can do instead, is to change ourselves and therefore become the solution to our problems.
