"Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine." – Anon
People come to coaching looking for some type of change. Sometimes these changes are external, like finding a new job, or planning for reorganization, but more often the change that people are seeking when they work with me (whether they initially know it or not) is internal change.
But these aren't the kind of changes that typically make headlines, even in our own minds. Instead, these internal changes can be difficult to define initially: feeling energized and optimistic again; feeling less frustrated and happier at work; finding mutual respect for colleagues; being willing and excited to take on new roles at work.
People I work with come to coaching because they are carrying the bulk of the responsibility at work (or at home) and want others to help share the load; they are experiencing conflict within their team and just want things to be less tense. They want to be successful, move forward in their career, and have good respectful relationships at work and home, so they can be ready to tackle big challenges.
These types of changes may at first seem daunting, but I've seen hundreds of people make exactly these type of shifts for themselves through coaching, significantly improving their work and personal lives and relationships. What could be better?!
What are you yearning to change?
