How do you know when you are ready for professional coaching?
Coaching is a powerful way that helps many people reach new levels of performance in their careers. However, what many don’t realize is that it’s really up to the coachee to make sure he or she is ready to commit to the process.
Coaching is a process of self-discovery and growth. One way to make sure you are ready is to count the cost of staying the same.
If your career path and life stay the exact same as today in five years from now - would you be ok with that?
If the answer is no, then you should consider how a coach can help spur on professional growth and development.
In my experience, most of the people I work with already know deep down what they want to do for their companies - coaching helps you get there faster.
Are you ready to put in the extra effort to reach your potential?
Coming to terms with the idea that a coach would be beneficial may feel like admitting you’re broken; in reality, it’s anything but. In fact, it’s a powerful decision that demonstrates high levels of commitment and self-awareness.
Coaching involves digging deep and sharing upper-limits, insecurities, fears with a trusted ally. Unless you shine a light on what they are and verbalize them it’s impossible to overcome them.
People who are thriving typically encourage and enhance the growth and experience of others around them. They allow others to feel trusted, respected and happy.
Are people around you moving up or moving on?
If you happen to be struggling to bring out the best in others, it’s most likely time for a coach.
Coaches can help you to complement your expertise and experience with quality leadership skills that will boost personal and team performance.
Coaching isn’t a quick fix, and it doesn’t always offer immediate gratification. That’s why it’s important to make sure you’re ready for accelerating your potential.
If you’re ready to do the hard work and build your talent, strengths, and skills to new heights, and you want an ally to help you get there, you could be ready for an executive coach.
