What Is A Coach

A qualified coach will:

  • Listen to you
  • Help you identify and prioritize your personal values and priorities
  • Help you identify and articulate your dreams for your life
  • Help you set long-term and short-term goals to help you work toward the fulfillment of your dreams
  • Help identify your personal motivators
  • Help you identify and remove potential obstacles or barriers to your success
  • Keep you focused
  • Challenge you
  • Introduce you to new ways of thinking
  • Help you identify your strengths and capitalize on them
  • Help you identify your weaknesses and minimize them
  • Provide you with new ideas and resources you’ve never considered
  • Brainstorm with you
  • Help you try new things and master new skills
  • Identify resources you can utilize
  • Mentor you
  • Encourage and support you
  • Hold you accountable for your actions (or lack of action)
  • Provide you with valuable feedback you can use
  • Help you measure your progress
  • Celebrate your successes with you!

Hiring a coach is a long-term commitment to yourself. Your coach will be there to help you identify what is truly important to you and develop a plan to achieve that. Your coach will be standing on the sidelines encouraging and supporting you as you take the actions necessary to achieve the goals that lead to your dreams. Your coach will be there at the finish line to congratulate you and help you gear up for the next race.

Unlike reading books and attending seminars, coaching is an ongoing process, and it’s very interactive. Individual Coaching essentially becomes a relationship – a supportive, mentoring relationship to help you achieve your potential. A truly great coach will tell you how to do something, show you how to do something (if necessary), and then cheer you on while you do it! A coach will be a safe sounding board and a confidential advisor. Your coach will be your number one fan, but also your biggest challenger—stretching you to achieve more than you could have achieved on your own. But remember, a coach is not a crutch…
