Coaching and Me


Coaching and Me



Coaching happens every day.聽

We all know that at some point of our career and our life, we need to be coached on different things.

We are not talking about advice here, but about the process where an individual transforms himself through steps taken by his own initiatives. Coaching is a tool, that brings out this ability in us.

I can get lazy real quick, I can sleep all day. I pondered about the hours in my life I spent lazing around and sleeping or in fact sitting in front of the television, facebooking? It doesn't give us any value add to our life or our skills.

I am going a little off topic ain't I? See the thing is, I needed coaching and 'that' someone to make me realize, where I'm lacking and what I am capable off. To make me push myself towards my goals and realize my capabilities.

They don鈥檛 need to tell me what is wrong. But what they need to do is make me realise where I'm lacking and set my own goals or plans so that I can get back on track with my career or personal life.

I 聽believe that we all need that extra push sometimes and this is where a coach can help you.

According to me, Coaching is where one makes one realize more positives than flaws and uses those positives as an incentive to make one commit to fixing those flaws.聽

I believe that we can even coach ourselves using the same process.

Coaching starts with you. There can be a hundred people telling you, that your behind in your work. You鈥檙e not doing a particular thing right, but unless you realize and tell yourself that or there's someone like a coach to make you realize that on your own, you will fall behind. I have coached other people and in the process coached myself and know the benefit's of the same. When you coach you also learn.

As a Coach these are the few thing鈥檚 that guide聽my people聽to get to where they want to be. Hope this helps:

Be Prepared
-When your prepared and know what鈥檚 in store for you, no matter what you will never fall behind. When you know the storm is coming you鈥檙e much prepared than not knowing the same.
Body Language
At every single interaction in our life, we tend to convey a message to the other person and so, it鈥檚 very important to be aware of our body Language, because even if you unknowing convey something, you鈥檙e the one to blame.
Engage
Engagement is the key to learning and discovering a lot of things in life. If you say you want to do something, but sit at your desk and do nothing about, then you鈥檙e the one at loss. Interacting with people around you and gaining more information is the key to engagement.
Have a clear direction
Do you know your areas of improvement?聽 Have you figured out which action of your鈥檚 will have the biggest impact? Do you know what鈥檚 in store for you if you set a clear goal for yourself? Knowing where we want to go in our lives is the road to achieving our goals so set a clear direction for you.
Set Expectation
Have you ever told yourself this is what you need to do by any given date or time? Well, if you have kudos, because I believe if you do that, then you won鈥檛 need a coach to direct you any longer, as you would be setting the sail in the right direction.
Track progresses
Well, if you鈥檙e doing all the above, there鈥檚 just one thing you need to watch out now and then, see if you鈥檙e in the direction you want to be in by tracking your progresses and achievement鈥檚. Even if all is well, there鈥檚 no harm in doing a check on your improvement鈥檚 every two weeks or so. In that way you know if you've gone off track from the direction you set and can always steer back in, as it won鈥檛 be too late.

I believe that this will give you a clear direction on what coaching can do and the impact it can have in our lives.

Have a blissful day.

Thank you Neville Gaunt . Each one of us need coaching is my view on Coaching. Some accept it , other's don't. Whether people are ready to be coached depends on their readiness to accept that they need coaching. Once they have been coached they need to track their progress to make sure they don't fall behind. And if they do , that's when a Coach comes handy again. If they set new goals that need to be acquired then again they can approach a Coach. I find that most people are ready to accept coaching when you tell them that they need it and have seen employees grow in front of my eyes to reach the positions or goals they want. Thank you once again for your kind words.

Or of they need new goals that need to be acquired, again a coach and come in play.
