In any coaching session, the key factors in achieving desired results are managing the client’s state/mind frame and client ownership. If the coach is completely selfless and helps the client to come up with their own strategies and answers, then chances of success and permanent change are remarkably higher. More specifically, the coach’s job is to ensure that the client is in a useful state, and that the questions/exercises are done with a specific end goal in mind. It means that the coach helps steer the rudder of the ship, while the client is the captain.
Having all the answers or the perfect advice might feel good for the ego and make a coach feel needed and significant, but that certainly doesn’t do much for the client. My belief is that by watching and listening to the client, picking up golden nuggets of information, being able to change a client’s state when needed, and asking the right question at the right time, a coach can help awaken and transform lives in a very short amount of time – All while allowing the client to go at their needed pace and feel in charge of the session, and their life.
By using certain NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) techniques along with spiral dynamics and the six human needs model, there is no hole too deep or “problem” too large that can’t be changed or improved.
From psychological issues like anxiety and depression, to mastering peak states for business performance, to relationship coaching between partners. I am dedicated to helping in the coaching field and honored to play that role in so many people’s lives.
