My coaching sessions are always highly personalised. I don’t force people through a generic coaching programme.
A lot of the magic also happens in-between sessions which is why I offer a fair bit of homework, exercises, and self-assessments.
There are four major elements in my work as a life coach. Often, I'll take clients through all these four elements chronologically, but you’re also free to pick and choose.
1) Identity and future self
A lot of talent is wasted not for lack of effort, but lack of direction.
You might feel that life is okay, but something is missing – perhaps a sense of security, meaning, belonging, or fun. Or maybe you’re transitioning into a different stage of your life – voluntarily or forced by external events – and you’re not quite sure what to make of it.
Through a process I call wayfinding, I help clients create a stronger sense of who they are along with a clearer sense of who they'd like to become in the next decade.
2) Goal setting
My job as a life coach is to help you identify some of the goals or outcomes you want to see over the next one to two years.
We’ll then break down those goals into smaller, manageable milestones while guiding you towards choosing the right priorities for you.
I always make sure you’ll commit to specific actions after each session. After all, it's deeds, not words that will guarantee you build momentum and make progress.
3) Systems and processes
No matter how clear your vision or how 'SMART' your goals – without the right mindset, you'll make little progress.
Adopting the right habits, rituals, and environment is therefore vital when it comes to success.
I’ll help you introduce new behaviours to increase your productivity and resist the temptations that are currently keeping you stuck.
If you're looking for a self-proclaimed 'tough guy' to shame you into action, I’m probably not going to be the right coach for you.
When it comes to accountability, I prefer to treat my clients like the adults they are – clever individuals who are self-motivated enough to hire a coach and do what’s needed.
Pearson’s Law says that when performance is measured, performance improves. That’s why I’m big on putting systems in place that allow you to keep track of your progress, while targeting any areas for improvement.
