Who needs a Coach?
Updated: Dec 30, 2019
The Chicago Tribune descrive people needing a coach as "someone who wants more out of life". After a car accident lead to severe brain trauma, leaving me without memory, getting back in “the swing of things” was not easy. After months of therapy, I was finally myself again… or so I thought, but something was missing. The desire to become something more was there, but the drive and motivation weren’t. One day I took a look in the mirror and decided I did not want to be who I was, or in the place where I had been for so long. I knew I needed to get out of the repetitive cycle of mediocrity that kept me from not just reaching, but even setting myself higher goals. I needed help getting my thoughts in place, creating a plan and an effective way to execute it if I was going to thrive. I knew I had to change, I knew something in me had to be transformed if I was going to make it and succeed. I wanted the change, and I was willing to work hard for it, but not knowing where to start was a big stumbling block. I had to arm myself with bravery, knowing that I still had what was needed to succeed, even if it didn’t always felt that way... I needed clarity!
Coaching is for brave individuals… people who are strong enough to admit that something is missing from their lives, without allowing this self-knowledge to diminish who they are, but rather make them ready to invest in themselves to achieve their goals and become the best version of themselves. In a nut shell, coaching is for people who are ready to take responsibility for themselves and for their lives.
Coaching is for people who:
Need clarity and a plan for the future
Want more out of life
Want to establish a better work-life balance
Are stressed or frustrated, and want to become more relaxed and happy
Are ready to work on their dreams
Want to be more confident at work, with others and themselves
Want to develop, or explore careers that are creative
Want to build a business or start a new one
Want to jump start their careers
Want to improve their relationships (Bosses, co-workers, kids, spouses, friends etc)
