The best reasons to hire a coach
1. INCREASED CLARITY AND FOCUS
We rarely take the time to think about what we want to achieve in life. A coach can help you increase your focus and ultimately your effectiveness.
2. INCREASED ACCOUNTABILITY
It’s easy to make excuses to not do the things we know we should do. Having a coach as an accountability partner helps you keep your commitments and reach your goals.
3. INCREASED CONFIDENCE
Negative self-talk is one the biggest inhibitors to success. It’s easy to see all of the reasons why we might fail. A coach will help you put in place a strategy that will help build your confidence.
4. BETTER IDEAS
It can be difficult to know whether an idea is good or bad, madness or genius. A good coach will challenge your ideas as this helps to improve them.
5. BETTER DECISION MAKING
We all have our prejudices, beliefs that can be detrimental to our decision making, by clouding our judgment. A coach will help you to see things from a different perspective and help you make better choices.
6. CREATING NEW PERSPECTIVES
A coach as a neutral sparringpartner at your side will challenge you to create new perspectives for your life and to pursue your goals.
Your level of success in attaining your goals depends on factors like your current status quo, motivation, perseverance, commitment and actions taken. There is no 100% guarantee that you will get specific results as results attained my vary depending on your circumstances.
What can you expect from me?
- I challenge your status quo and your thinking.
- I tell you what you need to hear. Not what you want to hear.
- I motivate you to make a difference to your life.
- I encourage you when you feel like giving up.
- I support you in reaching your goals by finding your own way.
- I offer you guidance and advice when you are stuck.
Coaching, counseling, mentoring and consulting – what´s the difference?
COACHING – the International Coach Federation defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” Coaching is about growth and change. Its a goal-oriented, solution-focused process. The client is responsible for setting the goals and for taking action. The coach mainly plays a facilitating role to help the coachee develop and reach his/her goals. Coaching can help you recharge, refocus and reach new heights of success.
COUNSELING – in general, counselors are trained to diagnose and help clients with emotional problems, the past or dysfunction. Counseling is focused on relieving psychological pain or treating cognitive or emotional disorders. While counseling tends to be past-focused, coaching is future oriented.
MENTORING – a mentor offers guidance and advice. The mentor shares their experience while bringing the “mentee” up the ranks.
CONSULTING – a consultant is an expert who is called on for professional or technical advice or opinions. Consultants use their particular expertise to diagnose, direct, or design solutions for the client.
1. HOW WILL I KNOW IF YOU ARE THE RIGHT COACH FOR ME?
Mutual trust is key to a successful coaching process, and the best thing is to trust your feelings when taking this decision. To help you find out if we are a good fit, I offer a 30 min call free of charge where we will discuss what you would like to achieve and decide if we want to work together. A good sign is if you feel excited and inspired, but a bit scared. This means that you are ready to commit to the process, but part of you is “scared” because you know there will be some stepping out of your comfort zone involved, which is essential for your growth.
2. HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN YOUR COACHING QUALITY STANDARDS?
As a coach I periodically bring my coaching work experiences to a coaching supervisor in order to engage in reflective dialogue and learning, which helps me futher develop as a coach and ensures that you as my client receive the best possible coaching experience.
3. ARE ONLINE COACHINGS AS EFFECTIVE AS IN-PERSON COACHINGS?
Online Coachings allows you a greater flexibility in terms of location and time. With today´s modern tools online coaching is as effective as in-person coaching.
4. IS WHAT WE TALK ABOUT IN A SESSION CONFIDENTIAL?
Everything you tell me in your coaching session is strictly confidential.
