COACHING & LEADERSHIP
Virtually all people, including great leaders, get stuck in life from time to time. We may know where we ultimately want to go, but struggle to determine the next best step to take in order to get there. It's not that the steps ahead of us are necessarily difficult, we simply need to see them from a new perspective.
Though many people are good at evaluating their own next steps, sometimes we need help from an outside source to take a closer look at what’s going on inside of us. Some of us are good at seeing the big picture but just aren’t sure how to get there. Others of us see all the detailed steps of what needs to be accomplished but aren't sure where to begin or how to prioritize our steps. This is where life coaching and leadership training is beneficial.
With all of life's demands begging for our attention, we can become distracted from what's most important if we're not careful. We might be easily side-tracked from the urgent things of life at the expense of handling the most important things that can get us one step closer to our goals. Our next step should boost our forward momentum, not hinder it.
The purpose of a life coach is to help a person identify their next step and encourage them to pursue it. A life coach asks effective, thought-provoking questions to help individuals self-reflect and see things from a different point-of-view. An effective life coach helps people discover obstacles, challenges and opportunities so they can define a course of action that's right for them. Once a step is determined, a life coach encourages individuals to implement that step in order to move one step closer toward their personal desires and goals.
If you would like to continue leading yourself well and could use some encouragement identifying next steps that could help you reach your goals, please contact me to set up a coaching or leadership session that's best for you.
Forward progress is seen by people who act on their good intentions.
