As I build my coaching practice, I find more opportunities to talk about coaching to loved ones, people I know peripherally and complete strangers. The reality is that coaching is so awesome to me. I love both coaching and being coached- in ways I wouldn’t have expected. I love the way I’m learning to coach, which is to facilitate the achievement of real, concrete and measurable goals in the foreground and to work with clients on the more profound transformational shifts in how they show up in the world. The latter part (the ontological part) is where the really juicy stuff is actually. The shifts in where we come from and who we are being in the world are the places where we find the biggest possibility gradients. And when those shifts happen, we can see and go after what we really want with choice, power and commitment.
I’m practicing how to say what I do.
I have been saying something along the lines of this: I am a career and life coach. I partner with people to access their power to create the lives they really want. My job is to stand for what you say you want professionally and personally and to co-build structure and accountability so that you move your life forward.
What does that mean to you? How does that sound?
If you know anyone who would be interested in a coaching relationship, I would welcome the connection. I offer complimentary sessions so that people can experience a little bit of what coaching can provide.
