There is so much misinformation about corporate and life coaching out there at the moment, you may be wondering if coaching is just a passing fad. Will you actually learn anything, will you benefit from the experience.
Well to help you out we’re going to discuss the way in which coaching actually works. Then at least you can make up your own mind about whether its right for you.
The experiences you have when growing up have a huge effect on the way you live your life today. The trials and tribulations you suffered as a child can manifest themselves in many ways, making you afraid of making a decision, not being confident with people, or at the other extreme being over confident and reckless.
This is something that can deeply affect your working life. Fortunately your coach through different experiences and training can help you identify these problems and work with you to overcome them. They are after all just a state of mind.
The Greatest thing Holding you Back is Fear
What is that’s preventing you from going out there and getting the job you deserve. Fear, that’s what. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure. Well guess what, fear is also just a state of mind, it can be overcome with proper training and support.
Your coach will be able to show you various techniques to help you overcome any anxious feelings you may have. If all you get from your coaching session is learning how to overcome your fears it will be money well spent.
The World owes you a Favour
Many people go through life expecting things to happen. They think that because they work hard and diligently they are bound to up for the next promotion. Well unfortunately the world doesn’t work like that. You have to learn how to take control of your life, only then will you start to reap the rewards.
Don’t let life pass you by, let your careers coach train you in new skills to help set you apart from the herd. Then next time there is a promotion in the offing you’re not only up for it, you get it.
Your coach isn’t a super human, far from it. They have simply learned how to get the best from any given situation. They will be hugely experienced within your particular industry and you’re in the fortunate position to learn from that experience.
