And when I did, I started by offering a ‘free consultation’ where I coached the majority of clients to their solution in that session, so they often didn’t come back because they felt much better!
Following this was imposter syndrome and the need to be ready and get things ‘just right’ before taking action and putting myself out there. Together with occasional self-doubt, this held be back from serving clients and using my skills to help them get the transformations they were looking for.
But perhaps the biggest benefit I’ve gained from becoming a coach, is the work you continue to do on yourself.
I’m definitely a personal development advocate, and love to support and learn from others with a similar mindset.
With a constantly evolving and developing profession, I strongly believe that coaches serve their clients better when they learn from each other … collaboration not competition. I’ve gained more from being part of coaching communities, from coaching supervision, and reflecting on my own practice.
