Coaching is a service known to most. Some of the most successful people (whether they are famous or not) have engaged in some form of self development on the help spectrum. Yes, that self development is what has contributed to their success. But what gives coaching, especially career or business coaching, its edge over other forms of self development?
1. Goal Design: Most of us know what we want (or don't want), and we also may know when these wants will turn to reality - or do we? Coaches assist in turning wants into goals that align with your values. The benefit of the coaching conversation means that you are partnered with someone who is equally invested in your journey, who will ask the appropriate questions and work with your accountability measures.
2. Strategy Development: We can all put together a map or a plan of how we are going to get that promotion, transition our business or work with brokering the demands of motherhood. The beauty of coaching is it expands your options and your problem solving capabilities. How? Again, you have someone challenging you to flip the situation on its head to bring forth new ideas or break through your invisible boundaries. Coaching asks you to think big, and helps you put together plans and breaks things into easy action steps.
3. Self-confidence: Coaching is an investment in you and your future. Finding a coach who understands your position in life translates to leveraging off shared experiences, feelings, and not just the professional training (although that is always important too!). Coaching will help you develop skills that you can turn to time and again post the coaching relationship. Your coach is your personal confidante, who is there to help you download the noise in your own mind, and help you focus and prioritise what matters to you the most.
The value of coaching in your self development is that it focuses on your future, by providing you with clear direction, action steps and most importantly the ability to become self empowered to continually grow and transition.
