Coaching: What is it + Other FAQs

“I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum potential” – Bob Nardelli, ex-CEO of Home Depot


Here are a few FAQs about coaching that future career and life coaching clients often ask me about on Discovery Calls:

⚡️ Coaching is a future focused, goal orientated process that helps you move from where you are now to where you want to be
⚡️ A coach is a facilitator, asking you questions to help you connect to who you are and what you need to be happy. From that space of clarity, change is a whole lot easier
⚡️ Coaching connects you to your true self – it helps peel back the ‘shoulds’ you grow up with that often signal a misalign with the true self and zooms in on the wants, the true energisers that motivate and excite you, whether your values, your strengths, your passions or your purpose
⚡️ Coaches don’t fix your problems like some magical wise owl – nor do they tell you who you are and what you should do. Instead, coaching empowers and helps you find the clarity and confidence required for change
⚡️Coaching clients are often initially stressed, confused, apathetic, frustrated, bored or overwhelmed but coaching helps change this fast – this may involve simple mindset mastery hacks and tools that dislodge limiting beliefs and thinking traps that keep many of us stuck, even the most outwardly ‘successful’ people on six figure salaries with mortgages that make your eyes water 🚿
⚡️While therapy helps explore emotions, some of which may keep us entrenched and stuck, coaching leverages emotions as a springboard for tangible change whether in your life or career. It’s about small steps and actions towards bigger changes that expedite true happiness and fulfilment whether landing your dream job, learning the formula for having difficult conversations, integrating new ways of managing unhelpful thinking traps that spike stress or achieving any kinda goal 🥅 (note, this may have included love triangles..)
⚡️Last but not least, for coaching to be successful you must want change. It doesn’t matter if you’re unsure if it’s possible or just damn sick of the pain of staying the same, you must want to upgrade your life ⬆️
