Will coaching be your vitamin or your Advil?

22 June 2020

We all have our individual paths in life -- complete with our own passions, ambitions and circumstances. Piggy backing on our last post “coaching is the new exercising” we believe that coaching is here to stay. The question is not whether you’ll engage in coaching, it’s how?

 

For some of us, coaching will become our daily vitamin. We’ll cling to the relationship we’ve built with our coach for years in order to ensure we stay engaged in being who we want to be and remain focused on taking the steps required to achieve what we want to become. For these folks, coaching gives us consistent and small nudges throughout our lives to ensure we keep on course.

 

For others, coaching will be more like the occasional Advil to handle the acute issue that presents itself. Ideally, we’ll be able to call on a coach with whom we’ve established a relationship and work through the current challenge. In either case, one of the most important elements to ensure success in a coaching engagement is the chemistry. That way, whether you treat the coaching relationship as a vitamin or as an Advil, you'll know you've got someone on the other end of the line who's in sync with you and understands how to coach you to your best.
