“Come to the edge,” he said. They said, “We can’t, we are afraid.” “Come to the edge,” he said. “We can’t, we will fall!” “Come to the edge.” They came. He pushed them. And they flew. GUILLAUME APOLLINAIRE

COACHING IN LIFE

“I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul.”
William Ernest Henley (Invictus)

We all tend to reach a point in life where we question our path; our past choices seem doubtful; our future options, unclear. And we wonder what we ought to do, who we ought to be, what is the right thing, what is it all for?

Disillusioned by endless choices, disempowered by constant comparison to manufactured ideals and distracted by an overload of information, self-awareness and authenticity are hard virtues to cultivate.

Knowledge is vastly accessible, but wisdom isn’t. We need to stop reacting, and start creating.

Coaching is how people remember they are creating their life.

COACHING IN BUSINESS

“Your title makes you a manager; your people make you a leader.”
John Maxwell

People who occupy leadership positions in companies are often excellent former individual contributors who rose through the ranks because of their unique performance and ability to do the job well.

The fundamentals, they don’t need. They’ve got the basics covered.

Except they haven’t been trained, educated, or guided to learn the subtleties of their new station, their new responsibilities, their new impact.

At this level, everything that isn’t clear, grounded and authentic in them will have a disproportionate impact on their output, their team, and the organisation.

Coaching is how strong professionals become great leaders.

COACHING IN RELATIONSHIPS

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Rumi

So much energy is drained, so much time is lost and so much suffering is accumulated in the area of relationships. Nearly half of marriages end in divorce, and the same amount of business partnerships end within 5 years.

Relationships are deemed a mystery of complexity and a matter of luck which often lead to disempowerment, resignation or worse, cynicism.

While humans are certainly complex creatures, ‘relationships’ are not a thing. They are a creation. They require us to let love through.

Coaching is how one becomes more loving from the inside out.
