WHAT TO TALK TO YOUR COACH ABOUT
Your needs are diverse and constantly changing. As a coach, I need to be prepared for any kind of topic. Some clients require only a few sessions, while others are in it for the long haul, wanting to deep dive into the coaching process to keep them fully accountable and on track.
Here are some of the most common topics to inspire you to bring for your next session.
1. GOAL SETTING
The backbone of any success is to achieve goals. Without goals, we are ships without a lighthouse, without purpose or direction. Understanding what you want and the steps you have to take to get there is the first critical step of a meaningful coaching relationship.
2. MISSION, VISION AND VALUE ALIGNMENT
Integral to finding peace with one’s life, goals, decisions, workplace and relationships. I work with you to not only recognize what resonates, but how to leverage that with every decision you make.
3. RELATIONSHIPS AND COMPANY CULTURE
Ensuring your people are committed is critical to a healthy organization. Whether you want to up-level your communication skills, or provide a better company culture where everyone feels safe, motivated, heard and happy; coaching can help.
4. CONFLICT MANAGEMENT
Conflict can upset a company from the inside out. Whether it’s a difference of opinion, dissatisfaction with the way something has been handled, or simply a personality conflict; it usually results from miscommunication or misunderstanding. Learning how to see all sides can be beneficial to building an effective and cohesive team.
In order to grow, it’s important to keep learning, and skills acquisition is a critical part of professional development. We will uncover what you need to advance forward and how to stay motivated throughout.
6. SELF-IMPOSED OBSTACLES
There’s nothing worse than being discouraged at every corner, and often, it’s from our own doing. Leaders often suffer from a variety of fears, as well as impostor syndrome. This can be paralyzing, causing you to question your abilities constantly. of As your coach, I will not only provide you with ways to improve your self-talk to see your obstacles in a different and confident light.
7. LIFE BALANCE
When our professional life interferes with our personal life, we feel exhausted, scattered and unbalanced. Missing out on healthy habits, and the things that give you joy become a detriment to your professional life, and affects your motivation and capacity to hit your goals. We talk about boundaries, intentions and how to become more efficient with your days so that you can enjoy your downtime more.
8. HABIT FORMATION
Habits are formed through repetition and when we are stressed or overwhelmed, we tend to take the easy route. Coaching can help you to take that first step, and become excited to take the next. We go over what motivates you, and what triggers you so that you can create long lasting, healthy habits that you can succeed by.
9. TIME MANAGEMENT
When a task is either complicated, or not regarded as ‘fun’, it’s easy to put it off and never start. This builds up in our head, and we start to feel guilty and overwhelmed easily. To tackle this problem, I teach my clients the strategies to make the most efficient use of their time, in a fun and easy way.
10. BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL BRAND
For any company to succeed, it requires a positive and consistent brand. We can go over various ways to not only make your brand stand out (both online and offline), but to create raving fans while you’re at it.
With coaching, there comes great benefits with the built-in opportunity for accountability and feedback. Everyone procrastinates, but knowing you have someone you need to stay accountable to can really kickstart action.
