Why Do I Need A Coach?

There are so many ways we self-sabotage ourselves from partnering with a coach. It could be for any number of reasons however I often find that the main reason is that we do not understand the role of a coach and how a coach can help to enrich our lives. The following are just a few things we say to ourselves to talk ourselves out of progress:

1.   I am fully aware of what I need to get done I’m only procrastinating.

2.   I am a high functioning executive who has challenges with organization why do I need help from someone to tell me how to organize?  You are probably thinking: “I am a leader in this organization, this is a non-issue.”

3.   The things that I need assistance with too small to get a coach involved. I should be able to figure it out on my own.

4.   I am in a rut. It will pass it always does.

5.   Asking for help is a weakness. I am the person people seek out for help. What would this look like to others?

Here is my question: If you are so smart, why are you still buffering in the same space? A coach helps stretch those boundaries. If boundaries need setting, then a coach helps with that as well. Coaches believe we are all whole, creative and resourceful and that we know ourselves better than anyone else.

Coaches have a myriad of tools that help to usher and create change. Change is something we sometimes cannot do on our own.  Think about it; we seek personal trainers when we want to become physically conditioned; we find nutritionist when we want to make a conscious change in our diets.

Who do we seek when we need to be inspired and want to expound on our personal and professional potential? A coach! A coach helps to stretch our comfort zones; they assist and explore the reasons for the inability to ask for help, or the failure to delegate appropriately. Time management, disciplinary sessions, etc. whether it is personal or professional a coach can be a great asset to anyone’s life.

One of the best things you need a coach for is summed up in one-word accountability. While we seem not to have issues holding others accountable, holding ourselves accountable is a different situation.

There are many coaches available to us today. Many companies retain them to partner with HR for their teams, and they assist with many things. If you have a question that needs an answer if there are ideas you want to explore, but you do not know how to go about it, do your self a favor and find a coach! It is the most significant investment you can make in yourself and your future!
