Coaching is about you and for you
Coaching proposes to explore, tame and use your resources to give you the means to implement and succeed in the changes you want and/or to carry out the projects that matter to you. A journey that invites you to become curious about your life and who you really are, to live your potential and your projects to the full. To enable you to achieve a life that lives up to your aspirations.
Have you ever wondered why great sportsmen and women, who have mastered their art so well, still use a coach? Their coach is rarely as good as they are at the sports they play, and yet... So there must be a reason? What do you think?
A benevolent outside view, both non-judgmental and uncompromising, a real talk, an absolute confidence in their abilities as champions. The coach helps them to access their resources and creativity to succeed.
What if we were all champions? Champions of our own lives. We all have the right and the possibility to become the best version of ourselves, and like all champions, to be helped, supported and accompanied to get there. As the coach is not in the field himself, in the action, he can take an overview, spot blind spots, encourage and support the implementation of the desired changes to achieve the set goals.
For who ?
Coaching is for anyone who wants to be an actor in their own life, both professionally and personally, and who wants to give themselves the means to achieve the projects that are important to them.
Those who come to coaching or engage in it want things to be different. They are looking for a change, or they have important goals to achieve. Clients turn to coaching for a variety of personal reasons: they are motivated by achieving specific goals, such as writing a book, starting a business, living in a healthier body. They come to coaching to be more effective or satisfied in their work, or to develop new skills to help them navigate the changes in their lives. Sometimes clients want 'more' from life - more serenity, more security, more influence in their work. And sometimes they expect 'less' - less confusion, less stress, less financial pressure. In general, they come to coaching with the desire to have a better quality of life.
It is not always easy on a daily basis to make the desired changes, to keep one's commitments, to take the nose off the handlebars, to clarify one's desires and projects, to know where to start, to go beyond one's own limits, to get out of one's comfort zone, to ask the right questions, to make the right choices...
Who says you have to be strong and rely only on yourself ? That getting help was an admission of weakness ?
And why not get help to better achieve your goals ?
This is where coaching can make sense, by allowing you to take charge of the desired change and to give you the means to succeed.
Coaching differs from therapy or counselling in that it focuses on what is present and on creating the future. Coaching does not dwell on the past and what has been, it focuses on who you are, what you want to become, how to live fully in the present and build a fulfilling future.
I believe that you are naturally creative and resourceful. You know yourself and your life better than anyone else. As a coach, I am not here to tell you what I think you should do or give you advice or provoke you. My role is to be a partner on your life journey, professional and/or private, to help you bridge the gap between where you are today and where you would like to be.
We work together to bring to light who you really are, your values and your life project. We will look for your full potential and the infinite possibilities available to you. Real and meaningful change can come from a deeper understanding of what makes you a unique and great person, and from taking bold action.
WHY YOU NEED A PROFESSIONAL COACH
Professional coaching is explicitly aimed at optimising potential. At the heart of coaching is a creative and challenging process that helps individuals to look for new ideas with confidence and alternative solutions with greater tenacity.
From the positive world
In the face of uncertainty caused by downsizing and other factors of insecurity, the expectations of remaining employees are very high. Restoring self-confidence to face challenges is a critical task in order to meet organisational demands.
Return on investment
The numbers don't lie and that's why the ICF has invested in serious research to demonstrate the highly effective nature of coaching. Our research reveals high levels of satisfaction among coaching clients and validates the significant returns on investment reported by organisations.
According to the ICF Global Coaching Client Study*, the vast majority of companies (86%) say they have at least recovered their investment. In fact, almost one in five (19%) made a 50x return on their investment while 28% made a 10 to 49x return on their investment.
All companies and individuals who have used a coach are satisfied. According to the ICF Global Coaching Client Study, an astonishing 99% of those surveyed said they were quite or very satisfied with the coaching experience.
The case for coaching remains strong. 96% of respondents said that if they faced the same circumstances that led them to seek the services of a coach, they would use coaching again.
