Life Coaching - the big picture
Today you as well as many individuals, business executives, managers and entrepreneurs may be seeking ways to become more effective in business and have a more fulfilling, meaningful and balanced life.
Life coaching is not therapy as such - it seeks to help you to come to grips with those "big picture" issues that often follow-on after therapy. One of the key techniques used is Neuro Linguistic Programming and Humanistic Neuro Linguistic Psychology (HNLP). Coaching frequently follows-on from a period of therapy.
You may perhaps want to successfully refocus your life from what you "think" you "should" do to something more "meaningful" and discover a new sense of purpose.
You may be searching for a "balance" in your everyday life to be happier and more productive.
You may be feeling that you have paid too high a price for success and need to focus on the true costs, tangible and intangible.
Why would I need a coach?
You may want more out of life or work, you may want to grow as a person or want to do things more easily than before. You may want help with working on your personal and professional goals or assistance in identifying what those goals might be. Every individual has their own reasons for hiring a coach.
How do I benefit from coaching?
You will probably find that you take yourself more seriously. An example is someone who hires a personal trainer / coach to get in physical shape. This person tends to be more successful than if they do it alone. Have you purchased any home gym equipment and only used it for a short period of time? Coaching helps you stay motivated to reach your goals.
You may find yourself more focused and effective in the things you do. Many people are out of focus due to the many stresses and challenges they face in their workday. I will be there to help you stay in focus.
You may feel yourself getting stronger and not allowing all of those old things that kept you down to weaken you. People or those small voices saying "you can't do that".
You might find yourself working faster in reaching your goals versus going at it by yourself. Coaching offers encouragement and support along the way.
You may start to focus less on what you "should do" and more on what "you want to do". We have been conditioned our entire lives by others regarding what we should do. Fulfillment and happiness comes from setting and reaching goals that "You" want.
Why does the coaching relationship work versus going it alone?
Because you are not alone. Coaching is a collaborative relationship that enables you to reach your goals faster than if you went it alone.
Goals that are established are typically better than if you did them alone. They are what you want, they fit your values.
Also with a coach you might find yourself taking more risks and evolving into the person you want to be. You might find that courage and encouragement to "think outside the box".
How long should I use coaching?
The coaching relationship can last from 3 to 6 months in a typical case. However some want shorter or longer periods of time depending on their needs.
