Coaching is a form of learning, where a coach supports someone else (often called a coachee) to make progress in some way. Progress might include; to reach a goal, solve problems, or create learning and change. Coaching is normally a conversation, or series of conversations, one person has with another. The coach works to create a conversation that will benefit the other person, in a way that relates to their objectives. Coaching conversations might happen in different ways, and different environments. For example, in person, by telephone, over Skype.
My ten year experience in coaching proves that collaborative coaching is more effective to help someone gain their own insights into a situation. I facilitate a coachee through a process of enquiry, learning and action. My aim is to help my client achieve positive outcomes and find solution. For the person being coached, the relationship feels like partnership of equals. I believe in the ability of the individual to create ideas, decide for themselves and move their situation forward.
Solutions-focused coaching is one of the most powerful coaching styles. At its core is the focus on helping the coachee find solutions rather than problems, building on strengths rather than weaknesses and finding positive ways forward rather than examining barriers. By directing energy in a positive way focusing on strengths and working towards a solution. The coachee will feel motivated and energised rather than de-motivated and demoralised, a feeling you have probably experienced when problems and difficulties are discussed and analysed.
Career change coaching is a mix of life coaching and career coaching that focuses specifically on job satisfaction and work-life balance. Here are some of the aspects you can expect when working with a career coach:
We are all looking for the same thing - HAPINESS. Some people find joy in their career, others find it in a romantic relationship, and some in a new sense of self-confidence. No matter your goal, introducing life coaching will ensure you reach it in the near future. If you are lost, distracted, unsure, unmotivated, lacking confidence, have lost your passion for life, or just want to make some changes, what you need is to ask for support from a professional.
A life coach can help a person to identify strengths, develop them, and identify personal and professional goals. Their role is to assist the coachee throughout the change process.
Do you want to improve your life or relationship? Change your habits? Change the way how you think about yourself or how you feel about others? Cognitive Behavioural Coaching will help you to make desired changes.
The effective principle of CBC is this: what we think about a situation, affects how we feel about it. As we can control what we think of things, we can therefore subsequently control our feelings. The tools and methodology used in CBT can equally be applied to non-clinical scenarios, such as dealing with lack of motivation, confidence issues and general personal or professional skill development.
With regards to leadership and business, CBC was developed with the intention of aiding individuals in overcoming functional weaknesses or mental obstacles within the workplace.
