I like to describe coaching with a visual. Don’t be shy. Play along. I’m going to ask you to raise your hand. Have it raised? Great. Now reach up higher. I’m betting that you were able to raise your hand higher than you initially had it.
This is summed up in a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson. “Our chief want in life is somebody who shall make us do what we can.” Coaching helps bring out the potential in the client. The coach/client relationship is a partnership and consists of conversations that have an outcome. This partnership takes people where they are to where they want to be.
Coaching can help individuals with awareness, becoming more aware of their actions and choices. Coaching can help individuals respond better in stressful situations, becoming more in control of their thoughts and behaviors rather than have an automatic reaction. Coaching helps individuals shift toward a more positive energy and become aware that each of us has a choice. Coaching is also a very powerful solution for creating engagement in the workplace. Coaches can help organizations cultivate strong leaders and drive meaningful change.
