hope you are having a great week.
This week I have had a question sent in from a reader looking for information regarding "Who needs a performance coach and how do you know you need a coach". I hope this focused information adapted from one of my promotional booklets helps.
First things first “no one needs a coach”. Even saying it as an accredited coach running a coaching business, that's the truth. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone has it in them to achieve all they are committed to realizing.
However, having said that, some people need or like the motivation of a person who believes in them and is willing to hold them accountable for their progress actions. Someone to acknowledge their achievements and challenge them to go all the way.
Coaching is about the whole, creative, resourceful you, it is holistic in the outcome, that's to say where you might think the sessions are bespoke to your needs at that time, we find that there are a number of cross overs that support the whole you so, they may be utilized in other areas. An example would be, if you are seeking coaching to improve your time management in your working arena, the tools and strategies used may also benefit you in the family environment.
We all seemingly have “that goal” that we would like to achieve in our life, sometimes they are not accomplished “yet” due to other pressures whether that be professional, academic, or in our private life.
Why get a coach?? It could be for one of many reasons but here are some of my biggest insights brought to me by clients.
It would be great to hear which of these areas you recognize as needing a little work, especially with the insecurity of the current climate. What is your goal to achieve over the next 3-6 months. What might you need a coach to support you with??
I hope this has answered the question posed to me, but also hope it has raised a few more questions, if so feel free to reach out.
Finally, I am really excited about our first newsletter coming out next week, keep an eye out for it as there will be an opportunity for you to get a free coaching session voucher.
As always, don't forget to share with like-minded individuals or just people whom you know would need to sharpen their EDGE.
Enjoy the rest of your week.
