First of all - let me clear the NO 1 myth. Coaching isn't training. Training is when you attend say a 2 to 3 day workshop and normally with a group of people. You don't get personal attention. There are classroom activities but you don't get to share your specific stories and get specific help throughout the entire workshop or class.
Coaching is personalised and individually tailored to you. You get to bring your issues, your stories, your specific challenges and the coach works with you on your agenda. There is no pre-defined classroom agenda because the work is really around your core issues and what is your agenda. So in summary, it's your agenda that the coach is going to work on.
2nd myth. You must be doing terribly which is why you need coaching. Far from true. People who are doing well are those who would reach out for coaching because they are usually driven, ambitious, and accomplished but would want to level up. People who are serious about up-leveling would consider coaching.
The main reason you should care or even give a hoot is because the sort of transformational excellence you received and up-level is nothing short of stupendous. It is an awesome experience, both for the person being coached and the person who is coaching.
The shift that takes place last for life! And the investment is small if you truly realise the life changing transformation coaching delivers.
I know because having coached my clients and seeing their lives transformed has given me great great satisfaction.
Many of you are probably wondering so how does coaching works?
Well, coaching does not necessary need to be in person ie face to face. It is just as effective. My coaches are usually from overseas so we do via skype and believe me - it isn't less effective.
So long as you can connect - listen via skype, FB messenger, over phone - does not matter. Obviously it's best if we can do video coaching - the best coz there is more connection but audio works just fine.
OK. I just thought I wanted to post this as I get question like - oh - you are a trainer. No - I am not. I am a coach and I get like a blank stare....
I could certainly do a workshop and train but then the effect and impact isn't as great. You only touch the surface in a training and a workshop. That does not mean I don't like workshops and training and I think it isn't good. Just that coaching is really a level up.
You get to level up from the inside out. The coach is helping you discover you. That's really it. It's not a one sided job. You need to be an active participant and do what it takes as well.
It's just that for most people really do not realise how much coaching helps - because you can't help yourself. No - I don't mean you are helpless. But let me give this analogy. It's just that there are situations in your life - it would seem like you are in the quicksand. You are sinking. You know that you need help so you can either think to yourself, I am sinking in a quicksand and either I call for help or I should just try to lift myself out of the quicksand.
I think you know the answer...
Being in a quicksand every now and then does not mean you are broken. It just mean you are human and you - like all of us - need a little bit more help at certain times in our lives.
That's when a coach comes in handy....
