Coaching – getting the balance right
Coaching is a new discipline that has emerged from psychology, training, change management and consulting.
There are as many different definitions of coaching as there are different kinds of coaches… but great coaching achieves a balance between:
- Safety – so the person can work deeply, knowing they will be supported with kindness and without judgement.
- Real challenge – providing a ‘truthful mirror’ – so there is opportunity for real growth and change.
The focus is on solutions and lasting change
If you work with me, whether as an individual or as a team in an organization, we will cover whatever ground is helpful to your growth. But wherever the journey takes us, you will find that:
- My focus is on finding solutions – the work will always focus on identifying the solution needed and providing the insight, information and tools to make it happen.
- The changes have to last – gaining self-knowledge and insight may be interesting and enjoyable, but if you don’t rewrite the neural networks, the changes won’t last. So we will always do that.
