The power of coaching can be difficult to articulate, in part because the experience is different for everyone. However, the general goal of coaching is to bring out the best in others. When coaching is done well, 5 powerful results emerge.
Five key outcomes behind the power of coaching
1. Provides encouragement for the journey
People often receive coaching during difficult, discouraging times in their lives. Sometimes talking with a coach provides the broader perspective to help a person see past the current challenges, reminding them of what they are working toward.
2. Cultivates wisdom and strategic insights
It never fails to amaze me how often someone listening, asking good questions, and reflecting back what they are hearing results in sometimes startling insights. The idea was there all along, but the coaching drew it out.
3. Discovers breakthrough opportunities
Left to our own devices, we focus on the negatives, the barriers, the challenges. But through coaching, we are brought to a place where we begin seeing the opportunities buried in those challenges.
4. Maintains focus on the truly important
How often do we get sidetracked on the latest emergency, task, or conflict? Coaching helps us get back on track and remember what’s truly important in all that we are doing.
5. Transforms vision into reality
By far the most exciting thing about coaching is when we see a vision transformed into reality. What was previously an idea or aspiration is now tangible in the present moment. That’s ultimately what coaching is for.
