I’ve mentioned before that I’m stepping it up this year in my work as a coach, and pursuing coaching certification through The Coaches Training Institute. I started this rigorous process of learning and growth last month, and already I can see how I’m stretching and evolving as a coach.
Here’s where I’m headed this month, stepping not just up but out of my comfort zone:
- No more holding back or playing it safe with my clients: aim to regularly fail. Growth happens in "failure".
- Be courageous and fearless: it’s for the client and their agenda.
- Be always clear, open and curious: never assume you know. Ask the powerful questions which elicit both deep reflection and bold action.
- Walk my own talk: do the things I need to do for myself to step up my own power and capacity as a coach.
How have you been stepping up – & out – lately? Where could you stretch yourself further?
How could your stretching impact your efforts to make a difference?
