Do you feel that currently you aren’t reaching your potential and feeling fulfilled?
Is there a gap of where you are now to where you want to be?
Do you sometimes feel you don’t have the skills, resources or confidence to get something complete?
Do you feel stuck and put off making decisions or fail to stick to those decisions you have made?
Are you ready to entertain new and fresh ideas?
Are you willing to be accountable for what you desire?
If you answer yes to any of these questions then coaching can most definitely support you to be the best that you can be.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a tool that is used to empower individuals and help them reach their goals; it is a structured conversation between the Coach and the Client.
During a coaching session your coach will walk by your side to help you to reach your ultimate goal and aspirations. They will listen to you, ask questions, find out what your challenges are and inspire you to reach that end goal.
You will be encouraged to make decisions and take responsibility for these decisions.
What coaching is not
Coaching is not about your coach giving you suggestions or advice. They are not mentoring or counselling you.
If you commence a series of coaching sessions and it is deemed that coaching is not the correct support mechanism for you at this moment in time this will be discussed with you directly to find a suitable solution to support your onward journey.
How does coaching work?
Different coaches use different models to structure their sessions. A popular model is the GROW model which is an acronym for the areas explored, Goals, Reality, Options and Way forward.
This model keeps you moving forward towards your goal. Your coach will be asking you questions, listening to your responses, challenging you whilst all the time remaining non-judgemental regarding the details and not offering you any advice.
What will happen during a coaching session?
Coaching is predominantly carried out over the telephone, Zoom or face to face.
You will be guided through a 6 point process.
1. Discuss where, what or who you want to be. Dream big!
2. Set the goal for that session (what needs to be in place to start you on your way)
3. Consider where you are at the present moment with this goal (Looking at the work you’ve already done and the resources you may have to help achieve it)
4. Consider your options in meeting this goal (a creative brain-storming of all the things that could be done)
5. Agree on some actions (choose and commit to a few actions that you believe will move you closer)
6. Summarise and work out a schedule of when and how. (Examine what can be done to maximise outcomes)
Each session will be 30-45 mins, the first one being slightly longer.
Who else will know what has been said?
A coaching session is completely confidential. The coach agrees and complies to the Coaching Code of Conduct and only in extreme circumstances will this confidence be breached. This includes the intent to cause harm to yourself or others or criminal acts.
What does the coach need from me during a session?
Preparation is important. You are encouraged to spend the 15 minutes prior to a session in a relaxed environment, making yourself comfortable and open to new possibilities.
