If you are someone that feels your life is ‘fine,’ and hiring a coach is for those that are struggling, you might be surprised to find that many organizations use coaches to help ‘sharpen’ the skills of their top producers. In other words, making their ‘best’ even better.
Many extremely successful people use coaches on a daily basis to help them succeed with their personal and professional goals. People like Oprah and Tiger Woods have, and do use coaches, as do many CEOs of large companies. The band Metallica has even used a coach!
So why should you consider a coach? A coach is not an expert in your industry. A coach is an expert at helping you create positive change in your life. It’s a distinct service and differs greatly from therapy, consulting, or training. A client is met without judgment and viewed as someone fully empowered with the resources and knowledge to achieve great success. The challenge falls with the thinking that created the life you have, and if you’re unhappy with your life, continually thinking the same will not generate a different outcome – you simply get more of the same! One needs to begin to live life with an internal locus of control, meaning you do have a direct impact on your life and circumstances faced, and once you re-think how you always thought, you begin to generate a whole new world!
For some clients, the positive change they want most may focus on personal goals such as healthier relationships, time management skills, work-life balance, stress reduction, or improving their overall health. Others may be more interested in professional or business goals such as leadership skills, effective communication, earning a promotion, increasing their income, or starting a business. A coach works with the client to help them live a better, richer life by focusing on what’s important to them!
Coaches help you experience insights that will catapult your life to a different level. You’ll gain fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities. Your thinking and decision-making skills will greatly improve. You’ll experience enhanced personal effectiveness. You’ll gain increased confidence in carrying out your chosen work and life roles.
Ready or not, coaching is becoming more and more popular because of its effectiveness in helping people sort through the difficult decisions that they need to make in life. When it comes to finding joy and fulfillment, people of all incomes and notoriety can get the support they need to achieve their goals faster and higher from Professional Coaches.
