Most of know that we don’t change well on our own. To disrupt or stop our negative or unhelpful thinking patterns, we need someone ‘outside’ our own thoughts to help. Enter the professional coach (aka life, leadership or business coach). We are here to help.
Professional coaches perform the oft needed ‘outside role’ to disrupt any unhelpful thinking patterns you may have. We reflect thoughts back to you and ask questions (sometimes uncomfortable ones) to prompt you to consider why you think the way you do.
The reflective statements we provide and the questions we ask enable you to see your stories as you have presented to them. It then gives you the opportunity to analyse them for truth, insight or relevance. Our goal is to facilitate discussion from the stories you provide to help you explore and set a positive path forward.READ MORE
As we mature most of us become more rigid in our thinking. Think of the last time you said to yourself, ‘I can’t do that because..’. or ‘That’s too hard, it’s easier to leave things as they are, besides I’m too old to change now!’ As coaches we’d say you’re never too old to learn, you’re already learning something by simply reading this!
We become adept at justifying our actions, perhaps ignoring our emotions, and finding thoughts or excuses to confirm our rigid beliefs. In a world where we already have too much on our plates and plenty to distract us, we either make excuses to either avoid being reflective or to take real action to change because we are comfortable with our firm views.
Our professional coaching approach facilitates the necessary analysis you need to bring about change and personal growth, along with seeking a commitment to action and personal accountability. Our role is to support you and believe in your ability to achieve the goals you set for yourself. When it comes down to it, you are the one in control of your thoughts and actions. Our coaches help you explore your thinking patterns to ensure they support you, not hinder you in working towards your goals.
