How I Approach Coaching
I start with the core premise of coaching: a coach does not have the answers; instead, an effective coach lends support and guidance in a way that enables the client to find their own solutions. Each of us has the ability to consciously create a pattern of thought to lead to a desired outcome. When you think a thought, you feel a feeling. When you feel something, you take action (or not) because of your feeling. Your actions (behaviors) create your experience in the world. It is not circumstances, but our thoughts about the circumstances that create our experience.
We attract what we think about. When we are consciously positive, we have the power to feel better and to have a more positive experience. There is no amount of action that can compensate for negative thinking. My goal with coaching is to help my clients identify limiting beliefs, assumptions and the inner “gremlin”: and to consciously choose to think and act differently. Part of the power of coaching lies in creating awareness about this ability to make conscious choices.
