I know some of you may be wondering what coaching is all about and wondering why you would need a coach. You may have never heard of things like life coaching, health coaching or wellness coaching, but I’m sure you know someone who’s a hockey coach or personal trainer.
Essentially, a coach helps you focus and move forward with personal, professional or even organizational goals by exploring ideas and helping you take action. Coaching is an ongoing professional relationship that can help you produce extraordinary results in your life.
According to WikiPedia:
Health coaching, also referred to as wellness coaching, is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to develop their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action.
You can create the life you want faster and more easily with a coach who will help you realize your potential, go beyond your fears of self doubt and take action.
A Global Coaching Client Study conducted in 2014 on behalf of the International Coach Federation found that of the individuals who had received coaching:
80% saw improved self-confidence
73% saw improved relationships
72% saw improved communication skills
70% saw improved work performance
61% saw improved business management
57% saw improved time management
51% saw improved team performance
Life and wellness coaching is not counselling or therapy; it is forward looking and is focused on achieving positive results. You have to be willing and wanting to improve and change your lifestyle in order to get results.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
Here are 5 reasons why a coach may be right for you.
1 – A coach will help you define what it is you actually want. They will listen, they will ask questions and they will help you gain clarity and focus.
2 – A coach will help you identify and remove barriers that stand in your way. What are the obstacles you face that have stopped you in your tracks before? How can you overcome those obstacles? Sometimes seeing a different perspective, or having someone’s unbiased opinion, really helps create a mind shift in order to overcome these barriers.
3 – A coach will help you develop a plan of inspired action and make sure you follow through. They will help you create realistic, measurable goals.
4 – A coach will motivate, inspire and empower you to achieve what it is you really want. A coach is your biggest fan and will push you when you want to give up.
5 – A coach will hold you accountable and make sure you do the work. Being accountable to someone is a powerful tool for creating change.
