Here’s a great article on why coaching is so important.

Think You Don’t Need A Coach? Here’s What You Are Missing
By Lynn Banis

Coaching is hot right now. Are you on the bandwagon? Lots of people think they have no need of a coach, but I have found that there are plenty of people who could really benefit from coaching if they only knew what it was all about. Most of us go through life’s ups and downs by muddling through, getting stuck in places, making mistakes and learning from them and moving on. Some of us are happy with our lives and some of us aren’t. Most of us don’t know that our lives could be much better than they are and that there is help readily available in the form of coaching.

Are you as happy as you could be? Does your life work as well as it could? How about your job – is that great? Do you have decisions you need to make that are hard? A coach can help you with all of these and much more. The job of a coach is to partner with you to help you look at all the issues, concerns and decisions in your personal and professional life and to take the steps that are right for you. The coach’s assistance is designed to help make the process easier and more effective, efficient and productive. Coaches want your life to work for you and they want you to live the best life you can – your ideal life, if you will. That may sound kind of corny but it is not. Most of us can’t even imagine how awesome and inspiring coaching can be for us. We need to try it to know for sure.

I can give you some idea of things you can experience when you do engage in coaching with a well-trained and highly credentialed coach.

1. Learn to make decisions clearly and decisively based on your values and beliefs.
2. Overcome fear and experience the freedom that entails.
3. Challenge and break through self-limiting beliefs that are keeping you from moving forward.
4. Create very clear and compelling goals that you will want to reach.
5. Bust through procrastination to productivity.
6. Find the career and job fit that are right for you.
7. Establish a routine that is based on good work-life balance.
8. Repair and build strong relationships.
9. Recover quickly and strongly from set-backs and disappointments.
10. Get unstuck from ruts and circular thinking.
11. Reinvent yourself after job, career or life status change.
12. Reach your wellness goals.

These are just a few of the positive outcomes you can expect from coaching. Now is the time to take stock and see what goals you are not achieving.
