Transformational coaching? Is this for me?
TRANSFORMATIONAL COACHING – THE BASICS
In essence, transformational coaching is about the completion of a change. It doesn’t simply unveil the need for change. It isn’t prescriptive of what change should look like. Rather, it takes the clients from the point they are at, creates awareness, then motivates for sustained change, before actually working to bring about, and maintain, that change. This makes transformation coaching incredibly powerful as a vessel for success in life, in a huge range of ways. It is suitable as a form of life coaching, career coaching, financial coaching, and performance coaching. This is because it doesn’t, ever, limit itself.
TRANSFORMATIONAL COACHING – NO LIMITS
In traditional forms of coaching, we see certain restrictions on the part of both the coach and the individual receiving coaching. This means the client must work within the parameters of the specific model of coaching. Whilst you can argue that transformation coaching is a ‘model’ itself, because it draws on so many other models, and is inherently client-focused, it doesn’t limit itself.
Therefore, what transformational coaching will be experienced as by one client, is likely very different to that of another. However, there are core concepts.
TRANSFORMATIONAL COACHING – THE COMMON THREADS
All transformational coaching is client-focused and client-led: This is the overriding commonality from one coaching session to the next and one client to the next. At its core are refined and heightened listening skills, which enable the individual to hone in on the ‘problem area’ quickly. This requires an atmosphere of trust, respect, and care. There must be authenticity between the coach and the client. Therefore, the relationship is key to the success of transformational coaching. This type of coaching isn’t about fixing a problem; it’s about exploring your foundations and core values in order to be the ‘best’ version of yourself.
WHY CHOOSE TRANSFORMATIONAL COACHING FOR MYSELF?
Transformation coaching will likely be for you if you’re 100% committed to yourself or want to be. It’s a daring step, as you are likely to embark on a journey where your view of yourself will change – for the better. It’s about removing the wrong beliefs and labels that are standing in the way of your authentic self. And it’s your authentic self that will lead to success in all areas of your life.
The beauty of choosing transformation coaching for yourself is that you are not limiting your coaching experience to any one particular methodology or outcome. A skilled and qualified transformational coach will work with you as you need, in a way which is powerful for you.
