Coaching has really shone a light on my resistance to connection and exploring the possible source of that resistance. This has been a lifelong challenge that has really eluded me until now. Having Linda ask some hard questions with regards to this has really made me confront the truth around my fear of connection.

Why do I want a coach versus a counselor or therapist? It’s a question often asked of someone who comes across a coach for the first time.  Many people still have not heard of a personal coach and even of those who have, many are often still not quite sure what a coach does. This month I thought I would address that question of how does coaching differ from other modalities.

Sherry Turkle has a fantastic TEDTalk.  As a professor of Social Studies of Science and Technology at MIT she knows a great deal about how we use technology in our lives today. As I watched it I was surprised at how it tied into my focus as a coach around courage, communication, and connection. Though her TEDTalk focused mostly on how we relate to technology and how it is changing the way in which we communicate, I believe that it also showed one of the biggest reasons why people turn to a coach for what is missing in their lives.

 It takes courage to make a change. It also takes self awareness that something needs to be done differently this time and it takes a desire to actually make it happen. I recently gave a speech at my Toastmasters club entitled 3 Keys to Lasting Change about ways to create some of the changes many of us are wanting in our lives.   I thought that I would share those with you this month. Those 3 Keys are:

  1. Clear Vision
  2. Limiting Beliefs and how they sabotage us.
  3. Accountability.
