I was chatting to a friend recently about coaching and he, like many people thought that getting coached is a form of lack of confidence in their personal power.
I tried to explain that coaches unlike mentors are not advisors or subject matter experts who will show you how things are done.
A good coach is there to help you get out of your own way. She helps you be more efficient in your thinking, channels you towards your own clarity. In my opinion, coaching at its core is a clarity providing mechanism. Clarity of thought, purpose and intent inspires aligned and therefore more effective actions that produces results.
A good coach knows that there are many ways to achieving what you want to achieve and that the way for you may be unique to who you are. She doesn’t insist on her way because she is not a consultant, unless she is specifically a strategy coach, which in my opinion is a blend of consulting and coaching.
You can do anything you set your mind to. You can with more focus and effort be able to see, when you get in your own way and realign. It’s just harder when you do it on your own, just like walking or running is harder than driving. Getting a coach is making the journey towards the achievement of your goal more efficient, more conveniently than roughing it up on your own.
You may be a fastest runner on the planet but you will get to where you are going faster and more efficiently if you drive or catch a plane. You are also at less risk of giving up because of overwhelm.
