My definition of coaching
A coach listens. A coach challenges your visions and questions your viewpoints. A coach gives you new ‘tools’, ideas and strategies, to see your standard operating procedure and thought patters in a different light. A coach presents an outsider’s perspective. Without judgment. With your interest and happiness as point of focus. A coach breaks your pattern when you are frustrated, sad, annoyed, frightened, or angry. A coach shows you an alternative approach of problems or challenges, brought by you.
With Robin S. Sharma (The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari), I like to say:
‘Stop being a prisoner of your past. Instead become the architect of your future.’
‘We might not be able to control the weather or the traffic or the moods of all those around us. But, we most certainly can control our attitude towards these events. We all have the power to determine what we will think in any given moment. This ability is part of what makes us human.’
‘If you want to live life to the fullest, care for your thoughts as you would your most prized possessions. Work hard to remove all inner turbulence. The rewards will be abundant.’
As your life coach, leadership trainer, or while moderating an intervision meeting, I will guide you towards new insight.
