Unlike consulting or mentoring, effective and transformational coaching is non-directive and is not about giving you advice or telling you what you should or should not do. Nor is it about delving into your past to deal with emotional issues as a counsellor or therapist would.
Non-directive coaching is effective as it uniquely enables people to tap into their own resources and ideas to help them move forward. Coaching also helps you overcome limiting beliefs, some of which you may have carried around with you since childhood, enabling you to break free and take action in areas where you may have otherwise been stuck or held back.
A coach always champions the belief that each individual person is unique and has the potential to achieve their goals, dreams and ambitions.
How Does Coaching Work?
A coaching session will last 45 mins to 1 hr on the telephone or face-to-face. As few as three coaching sessions can make a significant difference and start you on the path to achieving your full potential!
Using a range of coaching tools and techniques, a coach asks you questions that will challenge you and make you think outside of the box, almost certainly in a way that you have never done before.
Coaches help you find clarity and solutions in line with your own personal values, preferences, motivations and aspirations. This is something our colleagues, peers, friends and family don’t necessarily do, and something which is hard for us to do ourselves.
A coach will not give you advice or solutions, but will use questioning techniques and coaching tools to help you find new solutions that resonate and motivate you. At all time you will remain in control of what you are being coached upon and for choosing the actions you want to take.
The focus always is on what you think and experience. It is not about what the coach thinks, it is all about you. A coach can help you uncover details and new ideas, but only you can generate the perfect solutions for your own personal situation.
Working with a coach enables you to explore your untapped ideas and resources, helping you to make progress in areas of your life that you may have previously been stuck or overwhelmed with.
