I left the encounter feeling overwhelmed with one more thing to do. Ever feel that way? Most of us have. Imagine a time when you felt overwhelmed? Now, what would change for you if instead of overwhelmed you felt empowered?
You see, a coach puts you in charge of your work, giving you the power in the coaching relationship. If you need to define a new and next thing, then that’s what you do. And if you need to take something off your plate and work smarter then the coach will help you do that. Maybe, you’re seeking to integrate more deep faith and spiritual practice in your work—then that’s the territory. It’s not “One more thing” because you are the one setting the direction.
Coaching is about listening to you. It’s about asking thought provoking questions that lead to creative process. Leaders often need some encouragement and room for creativity; coaching is space and place for that. Coaching helps you take your potential and accelerate to accomplishment.
