If you aim to strengthen your inner life while developing yourself professionally, coaching is for you. The coach’s task is to enter into your mindset by engaging in active listening. It’s about helping you break out of the old patterns that lead you away from your goals and about discovering alternatives that direct you to success. Coaching doesn’t involve being lectured on what you should do with your life and how you should achieve your goals; it involves making you aware of your own desires and developing solutions that suit your needs. The coach achieves this via a wide range of questioning techniques and coaching tools, including:
The wheel of life helps clarify your life. This valuable tool gives you a new perspective on many aspects of your life, for example, family, friends, career, health, development, children, hobbies, and work. The wheel of life makes it easier to discern which elements of your life you should focus on improving as well as which ones you are satisfied with.
This is about setting goals: What would you like to achieve? Do you really want what you think you want, or do you want something else entirely? We delve into the obstacles that block your path and motivate you to push them aside, clearing the way to success and fulfilment.
Game plan is a method that helps you set aside time for the most important tasks of the week. It’s about reorganizing your everyday existence and giving you more time and energy for new tasks and actions that are currently left unfulfilled. The game plan’s methods make you more effective and efficient: By determining just how much (or how little) time and energy your current tasks require, you can use your spare resources to achieve your other desires as well.
The rule process is an effective tool for communication, for example, your family, colleagues, friends, partner, etc. Most of us operate on the basis of a series of unwritten rules. For example, you might feel: I only feel loved by my partner when he tells me that he loves me in a particular way, in a particular tone, in a particular situation, or before I consider myself to be respected as an employee, the boss needs to smile to me, pat me on the shoulder, and tell me that the company is glad to have me. These are just some typical examples of the rules that people set for themselves.
When you find yourself in situations in which you have trouble deciding which option to choose, a decision-making model can make a big difference. Your coaching sessions will give you possession of a simple, applicable model. Note that work on developing the decision-making model can take up to three sessions.
We all possess values after which we aim to live our lives. However, people order their values in different ways. Some examples of values are love, health, happiness, success, freedom, humor, development, living for the here and now, family, etc. Values are not goals but rather feelings that guide our actions. What are your values? How do you prioritize them? What’s most important to you? What comes first, love or success? Passion or acknowledgment?
Values have a tendency of changing: It’s all dependent on where you are in life.
