Sharing sector information, recruitment advice and interesting ideas
I had an interesting conversation with a friend about the value of coaching this weekend, here are the highlights…
“I used to think Coaching was expensive and time consuming. So, when I needed a Coach a few years ago because I was totally swamped at work and miserable as sin, I chose not to pay for it”
I asked what happened. He said:
“Nothing. Nothing changed...for years. Then eventually, when things were getting really bad at home. I hired a coach, sort of out of desperation by that point. Oh my God Bev, it changed my life. Seriously, not just my career but ...well me! I’m so much happier at home too. I totally get why you do what you do”
.... I hear this a lot. It was the same story for me years ago before I knew what coaching was.
Coaching is hard to understand on paper and until you experience it, I understand why it can be hard to justify the cost. That’s why I offer free sample sessions.
The thing is ... it works. I’ve been doing and experiencing it for years now. If you’re looking to make a change in your life, have goals but feel stuck and want to become a more conscious leader, coaching is gold.
Hiring a coach is an investment in yourself. As Lynne Twist says in The Soul of Money. “money is a current, a carrier, a conduit for our intentions”
My clients get back way more time, energy and money than they put in.
Last week I had a follow up session with an Exec leading a large-scale project, he told me “Bev, we’ve achieved more in this last month than we have in the previous 6”.
I was grinning from ear to ear. I love my work and I get such a kick out of the impact it has.
