Coaching is not telling people what to do; it is helping them clarify and control their life. It is helping them evaluate what they are doing now in their life in the light of their goals, dreams, values and intentions. It gives them new choices and leads to change. Coaching helps a person go beyond the mental blocks of what they thought was possible.

Coaching works as a partnership between coach and client, it helps to clarify goals, to make them challenging and motivating, then to achieve those goals with the energy that comes from their deepest values.

What Is coaching?

You decide together with the coach how often the sessions will be, what form they will take (for example by telephone and/or face to face) and the duration of the coaching arrangement (for example, three or six months). Different coaches will suggest different arrangements.

What happens when you hire a coach?

Individuals will be clear about what they want from life. They will go after it with passion, because they have cleared away the obstacles that blocked them.

They will have a more satisfying and happier life in every aspect. Professionally, they will be more effective and skilled at their work and get better results.

What are the benefits of coaching?

  • All human beings dream of fulfilling themselves and they deserve the opportunity to be their best.
  • People create their life experience and a coach can help a client to create the life that they want.
  • Intellectual understanding is not enough. Change means taking action.
  • There is no such thing as failure, if you do not get what you want, you find another way. Failure is just a short-term way of saying that you not succeeded – yet.
  • Everyone already have all the resources we need or can create them. No one is helpless. The client has the answers, the coach has the questions.
  • A coach works to increase the amount of choice in the client’s life.
  • Coaching is an equal, synergistic partnership.

What is the basic philosophy of coaching?

Everyone and anyone. Organisations hire coaches to improve teamwork, to coach executives and help managers. Individuals hire coaches to improve their life, their relationships, and their general happiness.

Who hires a coach?

No. The coach wants the client to be autonomous and achieve what they want. They make it clear from the start that the client is responsible for, and owns the results of the coaching. Coaching works to make the client more self reliant, not less so.

Can coaching create dependency?

Counselling and therapy are to remedy the client’s problems. The client comes to therapy or counselling because they feel dissatisfied with their life and want relief from psychological and/or physical symptoms.

They want to get away from pain or discomfort rather than move towards desired goals. Therapy and counselling often seek to understand the past and what went wrong in order to be better in the present. Coaching focuses on the present and future. A coach may work with a client who has a good life, but wants the coach to help them make it better still.

How is coaching different to therapy and counselling?

Companies hire motivational speakers for a number of reasons. You may be hurting, your morale may be low, you may be facing big changes that could negatively impact the employees’ working conditions. While motivational speakers can’t fix a problem in 45-60 minutes, they can alter attitudes and put a company on the first step towards a better situation.

Why Do Companies Hire Motivational Speakers?

Motivational speakers can play an important role in a corporate event and in your business. Think of them as the third-party observer that has the ability to see challenges you don’t see. 

A motivational speaker will come in with true stories from their own lives that can help your team do better at work and live more fulfilling lives. Their stories are relatable, emotional, humorous, and inspiring. Their experiences can teach universal lessons, and their enthusiasm is infectious. A speaker can present old ideas in a new way that gets your employees thinking. They can inspire creativity and entertain your audience. 

Possibly the most important task a motivational speaker can perform… showing your employees that you truly value and care about their well-being. They become your mouthpiece for delivering those all-important messages.
