The difference that makes the difference

Coaching sessions have a range of objectives focusing on where you are, where you want to be, and/or how to get from one to the other.

To support these objectives one of the goals of a coach is to ask powerful questions to help you to understand the difference that makes the difference around your objective.

The difference might be about getting clear about:

  • Where you want to get to (your goal)
  • Where you are currently (here and now)
  • What's holding you back (blocking you), and /or
  • The action plan to achieve your goal (next steps)

This clarity can be obtained about tiny or really huge elements of your life, or even on one element of a bigger plan.

Each coach is different in their style. They will also have areas of expertise in which they're great at asking questions in, and have coaching tools in their toolkit to support.

I'm great at asking questions helping people get unstuck and back on track.

If you're already clear about what you want, where you are and what's holding you back I might not be the coach for you. Unless you're struggling to release the block to taking the action needed to move forward.

It's as if I've gone out of my way of adding tools to my toolkit that are great at pulling you out of a hole and getting you back on track.

Here's a little about some of the more unconventional, and yet hugely effective, tools in my toolkit:

The common theme for these tools is that there is no need for you to share with me what's going on in your life. The content is often ignored as we explore the patterns of mindset, behaviour and language that are inhibiting your progress.

You'll find a little more about who I am here and what others say about me here. Although I suspect my YouTube channel might also give you a great sense of who I am, and how I do what I do.

Do please get in touch if you'd like to find out more about the different coaching sessions available to help you get back on track whether quick fire (15 minutes), jump start (1-2 sessions), or greenhouse sessions (1-2 day retreat), or lengthier maintenance programmes (sessions over a period of time).

finding this clock the other day reminded me how much I love being a coach for a team
