It is the client’s responsibility to desire growth, and follow their instinct. This is, at times, uncomfortable. It is in the uncomfortable that movement and progress occurs. Growth, and inevitably change, will not occur without a person’s willingness and follow-through. Learning to trust your gut – and align the head and heart – is a value that coaching can bring.
Emotions, relationships, and past experiences/triggers shape the way a person reacts to a situation. A large amount of our coach-client relationship is determining how daily emotions are impacting daily life.
Entering into a coaching engagement is investing in yourself, investing in the person, and investing in their current and future success. Through awareness of self and others, a person can create progress and movement to expand opportunity.
It is a coach’s responsibility to create a safe and awareness building environment. At the end of each coaching engagement a client has self-identified, tangible and practiced tools, strategies, and techniques to further meet their goals.
Small shifts can make a huge impact, uncovering roadblocks leads to success, and effective communication leads to healthier relationships..
