What Brings High Achieving People To Coaching?
Updated: Jun 17
❌ I want somebody to fix the problems in my life - the right coach will question, listen, reflect and challenge you to think in new, more resourceful ways but will NOT “solve” anything for you. If you’re not committed to do the work, event the best coach can’t help.
❌ I need help with psychological issues - if you’re dealing with depression, anxiety or a mental illness, you need a trained therapist. A coach will focus primarily on your future helping you discover new ways of acting and thinking, rather than dealing too much with your past.
❌ I need a wise friend - a good coach is NOT your friend and needs to have the impartial ability to hold that bigger vision that will help you attain your full potential. Family and friends are not impartial. They are too close to your situation, which can limit their vision of your potential.
✅ Something wonderful has happened - positive change can be exciting and challenging simultaneously. Big transitions such as a new job or career, can have a huge impact on other areas of your life. This makes them the perfect opportunity to get a renewed sense of Who You Are and most want to become.
✅ Something terrible has happened - a qualified coach can provide a compassionate and safe space for you to process and learn from the struggle so you can expand and move forward.
✅ Nothing is happening - if you keep trying to improve and nothing seems to be working, you likely need to change underlying beliefs about yourself. Working with a trained coach will help you dissolve limiting patterns so you can reframe every layer of identity holding you back.
✅ I want to make it happen: there is something in your life you desperately want but you are frozen by all the implications. A great coach can help you find the courage to take risks and support you through the fear and resistance that sabotage your desires, plans and dreams.
✅ I’m stuck: you may feel blocked, defeated, confused, at a crossroad or out of options. Your point of view is often the main contributing factor to the way you feel. Learning to identify and dissolve the thoughts that create those disempowering feelings can move you from helplessness to capability. A trained coach will help you get clear on what fulfilment is for you, so you can live a life that is valued, purposeful and aligned with a compelling vision.
✅ I need to figure out “What’s next?”: Perhaps you’ve just walked out of a job you hated or ended a bad relationship. Letting go of what you don’t want is often the most difficult step. Well done! Now is the perfect time to work with an expert coach and explore of a larger sense of self as you prepare for your next exciting chapter.
