Coaching is often seen as something that the coach does to the client. It’s also seen as a process. However, in addition to coaching being an act, and a process, it really is a relationship.
The coaching relationship is one where the coach and client work together, to enable the client to achieve positive change, in any area of their life.
Coaching can get you any result you want and is targeted at your future. (ALIGNMENT + ACTION = RESULTS).
Coaching recognises that you are not limited by your past; it is often only your mind that is getting in the way. Learning to listen to and honour your own innate wisdom, your intuitive voice, is part of the coaching process.
Combined intent (yours and mine) makes the supportive coaching process a powerful tool for:
– REACHING your goals much more quickly than you would have believed possible or than you could have achieved alone
– CONNECTING to your hearts desires (hint: they are unique to you)
– EMBRACING a natural sense of ease as you move through your day
– LEARNING to fully breathe again as you clear away old patterns that are not serving you and create a new space for happiness and peace
– STRENGTHENING self-belief and trust in who you really are, as you take guided action and realise your full potential.
Coaching sessions are conducted by Skype or phone. The initial coaching session can be in person if you choose. (Peninsula Estate Maylands, Western Australia).
The 7 Key Aspects of Coaching Relationships
Every coach will have their own style of coaching, using their own techniques and processes. However, all coaching will generally share these 7 key aspects.
Facilitating – The coach will help bring about the client’s change, but the client does the work and takes the action.
Not wholly directive – While some coaches may take a more directive approach than others, he or she isn’t totally directive. The coach facilitates the client’s thinking, to help the client identify their own solutions and actions.
The client comes to know themselves – This occurs from exploring values, needs, desires, emotional or mental blockages, skills and thought processes.
Goal setting – All coaching relationships will involve setting goals for the client and evaluating progress towards reaching those goals.
Action – The coach helps the client to commit to taking action towards creating the change they seek.
Positive change – Coaching assists the client to achieve real, lasting change. However, the coach also benefits from the relationship by sharing in the client’s growth and development.
Supportive – The coach supports the client in developing their own strengths and achieving positive change, without judging or creating unhealthy dependencies.
How is Coaching different to Mentoring?
Coaching and Mentoring are similar.
Mentoring involves a relationship where the mentor has achieved the success that the mentee is seeking. The mentor passes on knowledge, skills and experience and opens doors of opportunity for the mentee.
However, in a coaching relationship, it isn’t necessary for the coach to have achieved what the client is seeking to achieve. It’s more important that the coach understands the client’s mind, in order to facilitate the client’s thinking towards achieving their own success.
