Why do people need coaches?

How about, “Why do I deserve a coach?”  Because we all do.
 

A life coach is someone who knows how to look out for your best interests, cheer you on, and hold your feet to the fire….all with no judgment.
 
Just like sports coaches, coaches can see what you’ve got when you can’t. And we know how to draw the best out of you.

Note that coaches aren’t called “teachers” or “drill sargeants” or anything like that. A good coach knows that people can’t be taught or forced to do their best. Coaches find that core that makes you tick, help you work past obstacles, and chart your progress.

Coaching can do many things — guiding people to listen to their own voice, honor their own processes, and redesign their own lives are just a few.

That’s a simple explanation, of course.

There are many reasons you might consult a professional coach.

Perhaps your life isn’t where you want it to be, and you seek support and objectivity to articulate a new vision.

Perhaps you’re looking for a new career. Or you want to perform better in the one you have.

Or, perhaps you don’t want to change your life so much as prepare for a special event, meeting or presentation. No task is too small — if you’re having trouble breaking down the steps and getting it done, a coach can guide you forward and to completion.

You might need a gentle nudge.  Or a real shove. Or an accountability partner. Or something longer term and more developmental.

Many of my clients need to get to  level ground to begin to do their best work.

Getting to level ground means we detox old beliefs and thought patterns, challenge assumptions, and release the “old tapes” that work against progress. That’s where the fun of creating and designing begins.

If you’re reading this, I daresay something in your life has brought you here. And that you might benefit from working with a professional coach.

Consider me a resource, if you’d like more information or a complimentary chat.
