Coaching 101

Kelly SundayBy Kelly Sunday, MS, NCC, LPC

Do you ever have those mornings where you do not want to get out of bed? You may feel blah and ready to pull the covers back over your head. You think of the day ahead of you and cannot seem to find anything to look forward to.  There is just nothing to help jump start your day and propel you to your feet. Everything is fine. Kids are fine, spouse, job is okay but something is not right. Maybe you notice that you are having more mornings or even days like this. For a fleeting second you think, “Maybe I am depressed.” Still this not does quite resonate with you. You can’t quite put your finger on it! Wouldn’t it be nice to hear that this experience may be a prime opportunity for growth when you originally thought it was something else? Read more

Coaches speak about concepts such as possibilities thinking, visions, focus, clarity, life purpose, designing a future, movement, momentum, life balance, strengths, and accountability. Coaches assume that their clients are whole, competent and resourceful. People do get stuck or blocked. They do encounter obstacles in their lives but they still, however, are their own greatest agents of change! Coaches partner with their clients. They stand with you to achieve desired outcomes whether in business, relationships, professional development or health.

People often say they want something in their life to be different but they don’t know what or how to get there. The journey becomes part of the learning process.

Sometimes seeing a therapist is exactly what a person needs. Sometimes you just may need a long vacation. Sometimes we have the answers within and just don’t quite know how to bring them to life; coaches can be an invaluable resource and assist in clearing away the fog.

The most important thing to know when you encounter a road block is that on the other side of that block are many different paths. Consider coaching as another option to help improve your quality of life. “Don’t wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something greater.” -Mary Manin Morrissey
