You will be familiar with coaches and coaching in other fields, most well known is sport. The top sports people in a wide range of sports usually work with a coach to help them reach or stay at the top of their game. In the same way a Life, Performance, Career, or Business coach is there to help you reach the goals you set, be it in any aspect of your life, your work, your business, and to create a balance in your life and work.

Coaching is a relationship — a truly powerful relationship. Its purpose and entire focus is to look forward and move you towards your goals and dreams. What it means is, quite simply, that you have someone who is 100% committed to helping you achieve your goals. Someone in your corner, who’ll join you in celebrating both your small wins and your big wins. Someone who’ll tease out your strengths and work with you in using them to push you forward. Someone who will challenge you, help you stretch that little bit further, again and again.

Coaching is about looking forward into the future rather than at the past, although some background information is useful to help you move forward. Coaching also starts with the positive view that you have all the resources you need to move you towards your goal(s). This is because, it is about how you think and what actions you take which makes the difference each day and moves you forward.

So how is that done? Both by raising your awareness of all the positive possibilities open to you and by raising your level of responsibility in taking action towards your own success. And that applies however you choose to define and measure success. A coach will create the space for you to explore the future you want, create a picture of that future, take a reality check on what you’re going to need on the path to that future. A coach will help you consider all the options and possibilities, and then help you create actions designed to take you forward step by step.

There’s no judgement, no questioning if you haven’t taken action, no criticism. The coach is there to positively move you forward even in the most challenging of times. There is a great “pre-supposition” in NLP that states:

“There is no such thing as failure, only feedback”

Remember, you are at the helm of your life and you decide if coaching is something that will work for you. Next step is to get more information about coaching and just as importantly, the coach. Ensure you can work with a coach and they can work with you.

I look forward to speaking to you and working with you!
