My belief is that we could all benefit from a time and space to think and this is what many people come to coaching for.
Time to think....it is the source of power
For me, I was drawn to coaching when I felt lost in myself, a bit stuck, and was questioning my identity. I should have been happy, I had no reason not to be, but I felt something was missing and after trying as many different tools, books, and following advice from others, I realised I didn’t know how to move forward by myself. Working 1-2-1 regularly with a coach enabled me to create a deeper awareness and understanding of myself, who I was, my strengths and experience and what I deemed as success.
Others may be drawn to coaching for similar personal reasons; to develop confidence or overcome imposter syndrome, to learn about themselves on a deeper level or to work out a path forward. Coaching also enables people to navigate a transition in life or in their career (career choice, progression or career change for example), or helps them focus on creating and striving towards a specific goal. People who want to improve performance also benefit from coaching - whether that be personally or professionally.
We all have stuff we need to work through. We all deserve to be listened to. We all need precious time to think.
If you’ve questions about coaching, or how it may be able to help, get in touch.
