Why Consider Personal/Life Coaching?

Coaching is a partnership, a collaborative approach to considering a challenge or an area of life that a client wishes to improve.

Coaching is also about potential - the client’s potential. Being clear about the change a client wants to see in their world can make all the difference in uncovering the steps required to achieve that change.

With support to enhance their skills and creativity a person can, with effective coaching, move towards their goals.

Benefits can be achieved across almost any area of life.

  • Explore choices on the pathway to success
  • Achieve extraordinary change, renewed strength
  • Rediscover deep compassion and purpose
  • Model empowered thoughts and actions
  • Love your life and build relationships

WHAT IS PERSONAL / LIFE COACHING?

Coaching is a thought provoking and empowering process that can be both inspirational and life changing. The process is designed to:

  • Clarify and energise what the client wants to achieve;
  • Encourage learning about strategies and results;
  • Focus the client on their options; and
  • Educate the client on their accountability.

Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They also provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has.

A LEAD N EDGE client can expect to be actively engaged and encouraged throughout the coaching process and treated as the expert in their own life.

A commitment to change is necessary for a client to optimise the benefits of life coaching.

HOW COACHING WORKS

Coaching is a professional service that has grown because life is complex and making improvements in any area of life requires focus, ritual-forming habits and self-discovery.

A professional coach is totally ‘present’ for their clients in each coaching session:

  • Listening to everything the client says;
  • Observing all interactions; and
  • Sharing the client’s feelings as they move through challenges, options and choices.

Challenges, options and choices may be developed by the clients and a LEAD N EDGE coach will also help to make sure the client’s analysis is complete - perhaps offering some alternative insights or sharing tools to assist.

Specific techniques are available to release unhealthy anger, sadness, grief and other emotions.

Coaching is a thought provoking and empowering process that can be both inspirational and life changing.
