Long before I became a coach, I held a belief about coaching and what it was, and now realise that I actually hadn’t ever given it much more than a passing consideration. I certainly never considered the value coaches bring to people. Now I realise from the basic premise of coaching (the individual already has all of the resources necessary to move themselves forward) how valuable it can be. Often people find themselves “stuck” somewhere, hanging on to less than useful limiting beliefs and unable to move forward to where they want to be. A good coach can help with this movement – drawing on your own resources and enabling greater self belief – leaving behind the unhelpful and limiting beliefs. Having been coached myself, I found many moments that were EUREKA moments of realisation.
