What Happens in a Coaching Appointment?
Coaching appointments begin with a chance for you to report on your progress and end with a clear set of action steps you choose to take in the week ahead. However, what is that essential spark between you and your Coach that makes the relationship so transformational? Read on to discover four facets in coaching that lead to a fruitful outcome.
The biggest surprise for first-time clients is realizing that the Coach is not there to give advice. Instead, powerful, incisive Coaching questions stimulate you to examine the things in life that matter the most from new angles. A Coaching conversation can transform the way you look at life.
A Coach is a friend and confidant, your greatest supporter, and someone who knows you well enough to call out the best in you. A transparent relationship with your Coach frees you to go to places you have never gone before.
With support, encouragement, and accountability from someone who believes in us, we can do far more than we would ever accomplish alone. A Coach helps you stay on track, overcome obstacles and convert your “want-to’s” into concrete steps that are put into your schedule.
Coaches do not give solutions; they help you solve your problems. Coaching is helping you learn instead of telling you what to do. By gaging every situation to build your capacity as a leader and as a person, Coaching prepares you to conquer much bigger challenges in the future.
Coaching is a Support System for Change.
“Working with you helped me determine my starting point, so that I could focus on where I want to go from there. I felt empowered to make choices for myself and became freer to love who I was made to be. I’ve been able to complete my first set of goals and now we are working on my 10-year goal. I would have never believed I would be this far along on my journey so quickly. It wouldn’t have been possible without your insight and guidance. Thank you for cheering me on! “
