As we are two weeks into the new year, I’m sure you have overcome your hangover of the new year parties and started settling into your routine. I hope you have also taken time out to contemplate on your goals for 2016, some new, some unfinished and some to be refurbished since you last set out to achieve them.
There’s one gift you can give yourself this new year, and that is coaching. This is because coaching is THE MOST EFFECTIVE way to work closely with someone who’s goal is to see you accomplish your goals.
The coaching process:
Coaching, described in a nutshell, is a 5-step process, which involves:
- Setting goals,
- Identifying obstacles that come in the way of achieving these goals,
- Creating a plan to overcome these obstacles,
- Executing the plan and achieving the goals,
- Celebrating success!
The different areas of life where coaching can help you are:
- Job (e.g. team management, getting recognition)
- Career (e.g. making a career transition, identifying the right stream)
- Business (e.g. Starting a business, growing a start-up to the next level)
- Relationships (e.g. happier marriage, finding the right match)
- Wellness (e.g. losing weight, managing stress)
- Self-development (e.g. emotional intelligence, time management)
- Spirituality (e.g. finding peace and happiness, understanding the greater purpose of life)
The role of the coach:
The coach plays the role of your ally and accountability partner, who celebrates your success, supports you during challenging times and motivates you to push yourself.
A lot of times, the argument that people give is that they do not need a coach, and that they can achieve their goals by themselves. This is definitely possible. However, the reason why working with a coach is a more effective option is because the hustle-bustle of daily life leaves us with either no time, or no energy, or no inclination to work on our dreams, aspirations and goals. The end result? Another year goes past without giving due consideration, thought and action to something that is so important to us.
