Coaching (Life Coaching, Career Coaching, Executive Coaching) is a one-to-one relationship with a professional coach/consultant who helps you clarify and articulate what you want most from life and how best to achieve it. Coaching helps you create the results you want in life, work, relationships, and spiritual growth–in spite of the obstacles you encounter.
Life coaching helps you approach life, not as a series of problems to be solved, but as opportunities to create what you truly want. Living life from a creative stance enables you to produce results with optimal effort and less stress, and much more enjoyment.
If you are doing well in life but recognize that you could do better, coaching may be beneficial. Coaching helps you transcend self-imposed limits and bring out the best in yourself. Coaching is particularly helpful if you have an overly complex life, work too much and play too little, want to change careers, start your own business or enhance an existing one, or want to downshift to a simpler, more healthful way of life.
Yet, it is important to note that coaching is not a substitute for therapy. It is not for people with serious emotional or mental problems who would benefit most from intervention conducted by a professional psychotherapist. It is about creating results, not dealing with crises or deep seeded emotional pain or hurt. And while coaching focuses on the present and the future, it can assist to change perspectives or attitudes resulting from troublesome past experience.
The key to continued success in life and work is not just to clarify goals, need and direction, but also to produce motivation and momentum, particularly, the ability to produce results even when motivation is low. Regular coaching sessions with a professional coach can help you sustain action through tough times, learn from setbacks, and discover your inner resources and strengths as you persist toward your goals.
